It must be very annoying for you to have lost two cameras in this way, and I feel sorry for you, I would be gutted. I don’t really understand how they can be stolen without a video being recorded, if they were operational, and armed, which they were. I know they didn’t, but I’d love to figure out why. Sneaking up behind them, and ripping them off the mount, would instantly cause a whole bunch of movement, that the PIR detector should detect, and it should make some sort of recording. Not their faces, of course, but the whole background whizzing around, and fingers clasped around it. I wonder if, as it goes out of range and loses contact, that video fails to upload. That could be the case if it buffers it all before trying to upload. I’m going to test it now, because my curiosity has the better of me.
Okay, so I grabbed my front door camera down, and put it low down, where I could pick it up from behind. I got a recording of me pulling it down, but that was unfair, because I had to approach from the front. When I picked it up I walked off fairly briskly, so that I would go out of range of both the sync module and the WiFi. A few moments later I got a short video of me ‘stealing’ it.
Here it is if you want to see.
It makes me wonder if you had an issue of some sort, in advance of them being stolen. Either that or they used a high tech approach, and blocked them, but the odds of that seem somewhat unlikely.
Very disappointing that you could lose two in this way, without even a record of the event.
