Blue Iris Rulez !

Post by Kuntujin » Tue Oct 22, 2019 2:16 pm

An amusing piece of information popped up in my local neighbours online forum:
Stolen Ring Doorbell
Our Ring doorbell was completely removed from the wall last night and guess what ? There is no video recording of it happening!

I have reported this information to the police.
Apparently it is happening regularly in Nottinghamshire (UK). Another person moaned that they hadn't been told about monthly payments before they had theirs installed.

Blue Iris Rulez :lol:

Very amusing. Just one point though. Why have you copied one of my posts and passed it on as one of your own ?
Answers on a new £20 note please.

I have mine on a tamper switch, hooked to a thingy that has the words "FRONT TOWARD ENEMY" printed on it.

I thought the original version of this post was lost in the fabled BI forum crash of 2019 :o

But no. Here it is:

It turned out that there was a gang going around removing these doorbells, and electric gate control devices. Good 'ere 'init !

After that, I decided not to spend £160 on a doorbell, when people were looking for them to steal. For my next house (Coming soon I hope), I will have an analogue camera in the door "spy hole" plugged in to the Picolo Pro card. A normal doorbell will not attract bad attention 8-)
