Someone stoled a package off our porch. I need an entry level option before I start digging a sniper nest in my front yard.

Just need something I can put in front of the window that will take decent snapshots when there’s movement on my porch and save them long enough for me to get them if something is missing (2-3 days). Power is available right there, and I have automatic lights.

I need something tard proof and that doesn’t require a subscription.

i like hard wired cameras, but not many people have catx to their doorbell. that's the only wireless camera i have.

stuff like this annoys me, you are a company with office and warehouse space, why not take the extra time to build a fake wall and install the doorbell w/o showing wires?
