That's when you know you've been hit by professionals.  Though now camera companies are offering on-board camera storage so unless the thief wants to takes the DVR and ALL the cameras, you'll still have footage.  You can also have your video uploaded into cloud storage which prevents on-site storage theft altogether. Why yes, I do sell IP camera systems.

I'm surprised this doesn't happen all the time. I used to work at a computer shop and the security footage was recorded on VHS in the back room. It wasn't until 2006 that they decided to record digitally and store it off site.

I love the word "abscond."

That's really all I have.

However, I would have been nervous to get the lottery tickets.  I know nothing about state gaming activity, but isn't there some record of which tickets went to which store?

My wife has been asking me to install these. In your opinion, are there any brands you recommend or recommend to stay away from?

Axis the best IP camera brand on the market right now.  Their M10 series are great for home use.  If you're just looking for ease of use I'd go with the M1014.  It's a small 1MP cube camera with a microSDHC card slot.  Team it up with a 32GB Class 10 microSD card (25 bucks at Best Buy right now) and you'll have 20-30 days of video storage on the camera.  The camera comes with Axis Camera Companion for free that lets you review the stored video on your home computer.   The problem with Axis is that you can't buy them off the shelf and they're a little expensive (MSRP on the M1014 is 229.00).  Check out their website for their full product line (www.axis.com)
ACTi is another great brand that's considerably cheaper than Axis at about 70% the quality and much easier to buy as an end-user.
Stay away from analog cameras at this point as that technology is obsolete and isn't really being developed any further.
The only brand I would shy away from is Arecont as we've had atrocious experience with them in the past though they seem to have made some corrections to their Quality Control over the past year or so.

Until people figure out a way to jam the wireless spectrum.

Dropcam is offering a cloud-storage service that will hold 7 or 30 days worth of continous recording.  $10 or $30 per month.

Next time you find yourself not caring don't take the time to post about that fact, because otherwise it sort of takes the wind out of your nonchalant sails.
