webcamera

hi.

have decided to get a webcamera so i can keep an eye on my bike outside but have no experience with them in the past but perhaps anyone in here does ?

found one that was cheap and looked like it would be easy to modify for my needs.

its a deltaco web-310mp but their inst much info about it.

CIF format 352*288 pixels 1/7 cmos usb analong mic

im not interested in seeing faces only if someone is messing with my bike and does anyone know how good picture i can expect at night ?

dont have much light outside.

Regards

Raven

Don't buy an uber cheap camera, the resolution is absolute crap.

I actually recently downgraded from the Logi Orbit MP robotic camera and the picture quality was amazing on that thing. The one I replaced it with, the Logi QuickCam STX, has no where near the image quality that the Orbit did.

Just my 2 cents, but try and invest in a decent camera if you wan't to actually be able to tell when your bike is getting stolen

resolution is not a problem aslong as its possible to se if someone is there as i can get my shoes on grab my little bat and be on the outside yelling in less then 20seconds and money is a big issue at the moment.

also size matters alot as its illegal to have surveillance cameras as im going to have so the more discreet the better.

but have a couple of days before the money comes in so will look for more but doubt i will find much :/

due to firehazards and rules i cant park it inside.

if i did i would loose the apartment in 3 days flat and i would rather go out and kick some ass than loose the apartment.

btw before someone mentions the police, they are nothing but a joke and can easily take way over 1 hour before they get their thumbs out their a****

looks abit expensive but interesting nonetheless.

how big is the camera house without the foot ?

do you know if its waterproof ?

what is the shipping for it to sweden ?

how far does the infrared led manage ?

is around 12-15 meters from the kitchen window to where i park my bike.
