Have upgraded to the Ultra's and have surplus to my requirements the Arlo Pro Basestation and 3 x Arlo Pro (not the "Pro 2") cameras.  Comes with the 3 camera batteries but will have to use your own micro USB cables for charging.  Can include 3 metal stands if desired.

 

Pickup only from Titahi Bay, anytime between 5-7pm most weekdays. Sorry, don't want the hassle of sending lithium batteries through the post.  

 

Looking for $250.

Might like to post in this other thread about Arlo cameras too: https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=73&topicid=253078

How do you think one of these might go at capturing speeding cars at night ?

 

We have a real problem with two locals at the moment and the Police have asked us to record the cars if possible.

 

I've got some Wyze cameras but we have trees on the edge of the section by the road which limit the street visibility.

 

One of these could be put in our letterbox and potentially capture everything.

Normally, these start recording after they detect motion. By the time motion of a speeding car is detected, you'll probably find that the car is gone and the footage is useless (notcertain, but I think)

 

There is a way to have these record continuously but only when wired in which limits their usefulness.

Our road is long, wide and straight and the section is 30m wide. From the letterbox we can see at least 200m in both directions with no problem. So having one on each corner should cover a serious amount of road.

 

We also have decent visibility with a street lamp directly across the road and there are no houses on that side, we are pretty rural.

 

But that means a single Police Officer in the evening who goes home at midnight so the idiots know they can get away with it all night long. They do it during the day too and the last straw was watching them scream down the road last week overtaking two kids going to school on their bikes.

 

The Police have said we don't need to catch the number plates. They know the cars already, know who the owners are and it will be enough for them to take it further if we can get some video of them.

 

A 17 year old kid did an 84m burnout in front of our house a few years ago. He was going slowly enough for me to get up off the couch, grab my phone, walk out of the house, 30m down the driveway and take a nice photo showing him and his number plate.

I know these are sold but just to answer your question:

 

Motion detection works by Infrared (same as Alarm PIRs) so detection distance is limited. Alternative is to use pixel based detection but for Arlo, this only works if you're plugged in.

 

Do you have a way of having the samera plugged in and recording 24/7? If you did that for a few days, that might be enough for what you need?
