DVR catches burglars on video

December 2002 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

The EagleDVR digital video recording CCTV system recently made the headlines in newspapers after burglars were caught on video on two separate occasions by a person using the EagleDVR system. Two burglars broke into his house unaware that they were being recorded on a covert miniature closed circuit video camera linked to his PC.

The Sunday Argus wrote: "He said he had only one camera active as the system was not yet fully operational. But he planned to install two more cameras inside and two outside with a microphone strategically placed so that if he was burgled again he could pick up additional information such as names. He said the system would allow him to log on from another computer at work where he would be able to view what was happening at home." To read the full story go to www.eagledvr.co.za
