Ok, so this isn't actually a game camera, but it is so cool, I had to write about it. Besides, it is made my a game camera manufacturer ...
Stealth Cam, the popular scouting camera manufacturer has taken a small leap into the security camera market. I say small leap, because they have taken their game camera technology, integrated it into a security flood light, and named it the STEALTH CAM PATROLLER.
This is a natural progression for Stealth Cam, and a fit that really makes sense for them. I've written in the past about using game cameras for surveillance, but now Stealth Cam has filled the gap with an affordable security device. You can now get affordable home or business surveillance for under $125.00.
Why do I like this idea so much? Well criminals are used to coming in contact with motion detector lights. It typically scares them off, or down the street to victimize another home or auto. Often the activation of security lights is never even realized by the home owner, who may be fast asleep. Most motion detector lights are only a temporary deterrent. A thief's crime spree will continue until he is caught. Most criminals today don't anticipate that they may be getting videoed or photographed when they trip a security light though. Having the ability to prove a crime with video evidence, or to be able to provide the police with a picture of the suspect can be critical to putting an early end to the crime spree.
So what is the Stealth Cam Patroller, and what does it do?
It is a hard-wired, 500 watt halogen security light, with a 2.0 MP camera integrated into the housing. It is capable of triggering an activation when a subject enters within up to 50 feet of the Patroller's passive infared sensor. Once activated, the camera will take multiple pictures, or shoot 10 second digital video clips.
The Stealth Cam Patroller is worth considering for peace of mind and for the protection of your family and property. I received an email131913191319 from our neighborhood association earlier this week stating that several vehicles had been burglarized in our neighborhood and an ajoining neghborhood a few nights ago.
It makes me wonder if someone was outside my house checking my truck doors to see if they were unlocked? If I had a Stealth Cam Patroller installed, I would know the answer to that question.
