Home security camera with a range of ~200 feet?

I currently only have a nest doorbell and have been looking for a camera for the peak of my roof to be able to see my driveway. most cameras that I see usually only have a range of 50 feet or less. my chicken coop is 75′ away, and most cameras will turn a black bear into a blob. Budget is a factor, I’m hoping to stay around the $200 price point. I don’t currently have anything set up for a server, but I have the hardware around if that’s going to be the best option, but I also do not mind a subscription as long as it’s a decent value. I know i could probably use an outdoor wifi range extender and put up a solar camera on that side of the property, but the view from the peak covers about 70%+ of my property with one camera. the side of my house also has the same problem where it’s looking directly down the driveway, cars are never closer than 70′ and it’s a total sightline of about 200 feet again, and that’s still mounted to the house

GPS tracker for car w/o subscription

Hi all, I’m not sure if this is the right sub to post this in, if this is not the right sub please direct me to the correct one.

The other day someone attempted to break into my car and this worried me a lot. I got a steering wheel lock after the incident, but I would like to take my car security one step further and want to get a GPS that I can hide in my car in case it gets stolen.

I’m looking for a realitivly inexpensive tracking device that I can track on my phone/or computer that does not need a subscription.

I’ve tried searching for this and could not find it so I thought by posting here I might have better luck.

Thank you.

simplisafe, cove, abode, or ring? Advantages/disadvantages?

I am considering a smart system to replace my Guardian system. I don’t care that much about integration with apple home or alexa. I really wanted to get away from contracts and like the options these companies have over guardian.

I am wondering if there are any advantages to having one of these companies over the other. I am not sure if I will do cameras through them or though arlo, which I have read has great cameras.

If you need to know anything else please let me know

thank you

False alarm prevention ideas

We have a Qolsys IQ Panel 2+ with a few door sensors and 2 motion sensors in different locations. Over the last 2 years, we have had a few false alarms and I am trying to think of ways to prevent them.

We had 1 motion detector false alarm. Checking the video, I can’t see anything that would have triggered it. We then had a tamper switch on one of our door sensors get tripped, despite the cap being very securely on and the battery still good. All devices are ~2 years old since install and were original at the time. We also had the panel glass break detector trip while opening a door coming home while system was armed away.

Is it common or even possible to ask our monitoring company to only respond if 2 events trigger? Glass break+motion? Motion for more than 1 second? 2 motion sensors being tripped in same area? Or does the panel simply say that there was an event and they get no further information? Kind of in the same realm, have them totally disregard tamper switches? On our panel I can disable the panels tamper switch detection, but not sensors.

buying house with security systems

I’m buying a house with a Ring doorbell and an ADT security system. I have no experience with either, so I have some questions:

  • do both systems require a monthly service to be useful, or is there some way to access/use them without the “official” service?
  • how do I go about stopping the previous owner from having access to them?

Thanks.

Standard term or way to compare "auto tracking"?

I’m looking for a newer wired IP PTZ type camera that does “auto tracking” in the sense that the PTZ will actually identify a car or person and turn and zoom in on it to get higher resolution (without someone needing to be there to do that manually). It seems like the term “auto tracking” sometimes just means that it flags something as a person or car and starts recording with a box around the object, but not necessarily that it zooms in on it as it moves the camera around. I’ve seen at least one camera that uses AI to zoom in and track the movement of cars, but I don’t know if there are others.

I can’t find any security sites or camera sites (or Amazon) that can compare this feature. It’s not even clear why there are PTZ cameras with similar specs but a huge price range from $120 to >$1000.

Anyone have any suggestions on whether I’m searching for the wrong term(s), or maybe there just aren’t many cameras with this feature? Or even specific models that might work?

(Side note: I’m using a Blue Iris system for the control/recording, so some proprietary systems may not work)

Thanks!
