We own some commercial property in a pretty ratty area of south Florida. For years now, we've had various shitbags pull into our back lot and dump all kinds of shit. From dead bodies to houshold garbage.

I was wondering what you guys reccomend for outdoor use that is fairly cheap. I might even consider using fake cameras for the deterrance factor.

Thanks for any help!!!

i hate pit bulls but it sounds like you need a few of em. they will eat up dead bodies and the occasional shitbag tresspasser. also you can buy cheap peice of crap security cameras from wallmart for like 20-40 bucks and hook it up to a VCR. that would prob. be your best and cheapest option.

Yeah, someone left a stolen car behind our building, and the Sheriffs office said the body of the person was reported missing

cameras are so cheap now that there is no need to go with fake ones. For under $200 you should be able to cover your whole property. Also signs and motion lights might work.

You will return to your property to find that some crackheads have stolen your security cameras and sold them to the nearest Pawn Shop. Bet you fiddy 87 cents.

Hogs might not be a bad idea since it appears someone feeds them bodies every so often.

If you just install a camera and video monitor, someone will have to be watching it all the time in order to catch them in the act - not very practical while you're sleeping, or at work.

If you hook the camera up to an ordinary VCR, the VCR will run out of tape every few hours (again requiring someone to either rewind or replace the tape 6 times a day). You can buy special time-lapse VCRs that will increase the length of unattended run-time, but not for cheap.

There are video capture cards that can be programmed to start recording an event as soon as motion is detected somewhere in the video image, but again, they ain't cheap.

Have you considered setting up a deer-cam? You can buy them for cheap at many sporting goods stores, they'll run for a long time on batteries, and are pretty unobtrusive.

There's a local computer company that also does monitoring of local businesses. He set up cameras with IR LEDs on them (so he can see in the dark without obvious lights), and the data is downloded via high speed connection and stored on his hard drives. I seem to recall that he could store quite a few days on the drives, and that the cameras could record continously or be activated by motion/alarm going off.

You might see if some local company offers something similar.
