Hi Experts. I was at a school event last night and the principal mentioned that someone has been getting into a storage room and stealing various items (tools, snacks, uniforms, etc). He hasn't had any luck finding out who but asked if I could put in a camera to capture the thief. I am out of my league when it comes to this but I told him I would ask around for a possible solution.
With that as the history, what I am (ideally) looking for is something like this:
-motion detection so there isn't hours of boxes being filmed
-video captured to flash memory on the camera
-can be mounted on the ceiling or hidden being items
-doesn't need to have night vision
I realize if the thief finds the camera then we lose the footage. I'm looking for a quick and easy solution (add in cheap as it's on my dime) here that doesn't involve adding new cables or wires, setting up a WAP and laptop, etc.. Let me know what cameras you experts would recommend for this. Thanks in advance.
