I don't know them myself but I am aware that there are rules relating to CCTV and what you are filming, where it is pointing, having to display notices so people are aware you have CCTV. If you don't follow these you may find any 'evidence' is inadmissable and worse illegal.

as long as it is poiting on ur property then I think u r ok to put them up, IF they are pointing on the street or another persons property then can be prosecuted. Let me know if I am wrong.

Taking photographs of anything in or from a public street is legal. Even some police officers are not aware of this.

If you are recording the pictures, your PC's hard disc is likely to be the best due to its capacity (or potential capacity). You will need a video capture card or analogue TV card which are relatively cheap. Hard drive recorders, video recorders, DVD recorders will all accept the input from the camera but the PC gives you more flexibility with regards to storage.

The number of lights is not the be all and end all of the quality of the camera. The CMOS and lens size are also factors.

thank you so much for this info.:thumbsup: how do i find out the hard disc space on my laptop? (ive not long got it but ive forgot the size). then, after veiwing the footage - do i just delete it from my laptop if its no use? will this still record if my laptop is turned off?

If you go to File Explorer (use Windows Key and E key) and right click the C drive, then click Properties you will be given an indication of how much hard disc space is remaining on the C drive. 40GB free space is enough for about 6 hours of recording but this depends on the software used and the compression.

Yes the recorded files can be deleted (or archived to DVD media). You can use an external hard disc for extra capacity.

Unfortunately, you do need the laptop to be on but you can schedule the laptop to switch on at a certain time, start the recording and switch off at a specified time if you only want recording at certain times.

I just bought a device called a Easycap , it allows you to attach any camcorder ,CCtv , video etc to it and links to a USB2 port .I bought it specifically for my laptops as I use TV capture and firewire cards in my Pc's .It comes with video editing software as well as it's drivers on disk .It's very good and I have already tried it out with a CCtv camera , left it on the preview screen and the quality is'nt to bad , just click on the capture button for it to record to the hard drive .I have tried out some good software in the past ,you could set up zones and auto capture and it would even send still pictures through an e-mail account or capture moving pictures.The Easycap gadget was only £9.61 delivered , I think there was a link from this site a few weeks back .

Also see if you can get a copy of Gotcha software, it allows you to zone off areas that wont be filmed, and act like a PIR. so when something moves the system starts recording, with the zoning tool you can set the PIR areas to say, not include your neighbours path.

So you cant be accused of filming them, you are filming your property.
It can also send emails, upload video, and send texts.

Record everything, make notes and shop them to the relevant authorities.

If all else fails find your local outlaw biker gang leader :whistling:

Personally I would go for something which takes a series of pictures in a JPG format. The camera only records when the previous frame differs from the previous frame, e.g. if there is no activity, then no pictures are taken and due to the compressed nature of jpeg's, the HDD size isn't so much of an issue.
