Has anyone's home surveillance system come in handy?
I've seen a lot of cameras and surveillance systems recently on woot, et. al. We set up one for ourselves awhile ago and it has come in handy several times. The kids called one day to say someone kept ringing the doorbell and they were scared, so we logged on and checked the camera and could reassure them (Jehova's Witness). One day a package was delivered but disappeared before we went to the door - the recording showed the UPS guy coming back, taking it off the porch and taking it next door! I would have thought something has been stolen, so this was good to know. Someone rang our bell at 2 am one morning - a quick look at the recording showed a group of teens who ran away laughing. Luckily, nothing bad happened any of these times, but checking the camera was reassuring! How about you?
