Default Want small security camera for internal security

I trust this posting isn't entirely off-topic. If anybody knows of a better
venue, I'd apprecaite the feedback...

I have a remote cabin that has been robbed by persons unknown (but suspected
to be meth-heads well known in the area). Law enforcement is stretched
thin, so proving the identity of the perps will be impossible.

What I would like to find is a battery powered nanny-cam or similar camera
that I can conceal in a smoke detector shell. The trick is that I'd like
the cam to simply capture a few minutes (or even snaps) of the viewing area
and store images to a flash drive. I can't wire the output to a PC or
similar storage device.

In addition, I'd want the camera to be motion activated, or triggered by a
simple means that I could set up if a forced entry is made. The intent is
to simply get a pictorial record of an illegal entry.

Any ideas where I can find products like this? I haven't been able to find
anything that combines motion activated and storing info to a flash drive.

Cheers
Gary

Find a store that sells security camera devices and equipment. They can
sell you the right stuff. You might check with a private detective
agency in your area to see where he/she buys such items.

try www.supercircuits.com You have alot of options, one is a clock or
thermometer with a built in motion detecting internal digital
recorder, if you have phone line a web camera that notifies you and
records on your computer where you live, you could see them while they
are there.

Small correction by a pedantic fuddy-duddy: A building cannot be "robbed."
Only a person can be robbed. Buildings (and cars and caves) are burgled.

Have you considered an alarm system?

Catch 'em in the act. Shoot 'em dead, I always say.

I've seen stand-alone digital cameras made for hunters to use in the
woods;they even have IR flashes to work under low light conditions and not
alert the prey.I've seen local sporting goods newspaper ads for them.
they strap to trees,are battery-powered.

The other option is to get yourself dropped off, and live in an inner

AMEN!!
and they don't commit any further thefts/crimes. Ever.
saves everybody money.


he could also just park down the road,and bicycle the rest of the way to
the cabin. Bring the bike inside..... ;-)
