I should also mention that when I chased this punk off, I had a 1/2" bender handle and just barely missed his hand as he pulled the door shut and peeled off.
Had I been just a little faster...
And there were no shadows the next night to hide in after I whipped up some 150w halogen floods at various angles, but the wife is making me move one of them as it lights up my van, as well as the otherside of the street. So anyway, now at night, I dont have to stick to infrared. I get footage all night in much better detail, and blazing color.
Now, and I need some help on this, I want to intergrate my alarm and lighting. I need some way to have say a 12v RC controlled proximity sensor trigger a relay inside the house. That way if you touch the van, the other floods will go on. That will make my wife happy, as currently there are NO SHADOWS in front of the house after dark, and the neighbors are looking at me funny. And I might be able to sleep at night. Any ideas?
Short of that I am pretty sure an electric fence charger hooked up to the van could be hazardous, and not good for the van either.
