Good luck, Ig. Can the police overscan that vid and pull a plate?
What all was taken? Tools and equipment? Cash box? Scrap?
That really sucks. I got hit a few times in LoCal, mostly by drunken
illegals. One left a lot of his blood and was caught, but they just
shipped him home. I hope the cops have a suspect, given the video.
Catch those bastids!
Any white/lite vans or carryalls with luggare rack on top
reported stolen in your area?
Could be a Ford transit van http://tinyurl.com/os3osgb

I mostly used those cameras to spy on my workers when I am away (and
to make them aware that I spy on them).
I fixed that, now there are 500w lights on both sides of the building.
I will also add two more higher resolution cameras, and lights,
pointing at the road.
I will check with the village.
They were outside and stole some scrap electric motors and some
This camera sucks, and crashes about 1/2 the time when I download
previous movies from SD card. I have a script that does it at :22
minutes every hour, hence the missing ten minutes from around that time.
I will add some better cameras ($1000+) and some more flood lighting.
May also add some switch triggered alarms.
The worst was a battery from my dump truck.
The race would not help very much, plenty of people of any race
It is a lesson learned.
The problem is this.
1) If I go with a solution by any kind of company (surveillance,
alarms), I would end up paying them big money every month and still
questionable results. I have seen a lot of such things in other
burglaries, that security systems do not help for all kinds of odd
2) The DIY solution requires a lot of time investment, and then I have
to deal with crappy products, for example cameras with a big list of
"features", that crash when I download a file.
Ig, I played with the very pixelated capture and looked at the vehicle
a bit. I think it's a minivan, not an SUV.
It has very bright backup lights, two additional backup lights beneath
the bumper, and a triangular taillight pattern. It doesn't look like
domestic plastic, so try imports.
The lights and the wide support beam between the rear and side windows
should give experts strong clues. I'll bet a used car salesman could
quickly tell you the make and model. Take a printout around and ask,
or tell the detective to give him some more clues, if he hasn't
already thought of that. And if he cares. <cringe>
Two very bad pics, but a different light perspective.

triangular light pattern.

I guess you are an executive at this company, so I assume you've notified your legal and accounting folks? Delegation of authority instead of the usual 10-foot-tall-and bulletproof-diy? You are in Illinois, right?
You are saying that publicaly? Are your legal folks comfortable with that?
That fast? You fixed it or the appropriate security personnel and electricians? Have the lawyers, accountants and their insurance contractors been satisfied? Has the local law enforcement been notified or is this all a do-it-yourself effort?
Remember when I installed cameras throughout the shop and the union had
a fit but didn't have a leg to stand on, at least under Ohio Law. The
libs here had a fit about my invading my employees' privacy. So I
wasn't surprised when the libs tried that old chestnut again. If it
were up to the libs everybody would work for the government and there
would be no crime...because nothing would be illegal. UTOPIA!
That sucks, but at least from your other posts it seems they didn't get
too much. You can get 5MP IP cams from China for under $200 that will
give you a nice clear picture. Couple with a decent NVR or some NVR
software on a PC and it can work pretty well.
