I have been thinking about investing in a couple of security cameras for outside my house--one for the alley and one for the back drive. I do not worry too much about the front drive because there is enough traffic and enough people home around here to make most miscreants think twice about coming into the front drive. I fear my alley and back drive are vulnerable, though. I have looked at some security cameras on Amazon--cost is at least as much as my new iphone. I have no real clue how they work, but I believe they are supposed to be connected in such a way that you have internet and mobile phone access to what is going on through them outside. Does anyone use anything like this? Probably not, but I thought I would ask. I cannot afford to invest before I pay off this phone, but I think it would be worth doing in another year or so. Police cannot do much to help after the fact, so me thinks deterrence is the best idea. Thanks!
