Hello everyone, I'm interested in your responses and components for this build. If you're familiar with a system for security cams, then by all means, please post your valuable information. Something like this from supercircuits, but at a much much lower price.

    sometimes resort to buying even the most expensive home surveillance camera systems just to make sure that their home is far from being the criminals’ target. However, for those who can’t afford to buy the cameras, they can still prevent criminals from entering their house by using fake cameras.


    Interesting, that's a good idea.
