I have had a Dropcam camera in my possession for several months now, sitting in the box just waiting to be used. We were in limbo about needing to move so I didn’t want to set it up where we were. However, we finally moved into a new place and I finally have the perfect use for the Dropcam. My plan was to use it for our office, since that’s where the majority of equipment lives. However, after a few nights at the new house we discovered a watchful eye was needed elsewhere.
Let me explain. Prior to moving into this house the owners laid down new sod in the background, he never landscaped it before, but since a family was moving in he knew it needed to be done. The sod completely changes the feel of the background, now it feels like a life-sized zen garden. We love it!
But then we started to notice the grass being pulled up at the corners, we assumed it was the gardener checking the sprinklers but realized it was more than that. It wasn’t the gardener, in fact we have no idea who or what could be doing it, so we decided to mount the Dropcam outside and see if we can find the culprit. We aren’t really sure when the prowler comes out – but it’s sometime before we wake up in the morning.
Friends suggest it could be squirrels, thinking that the new grass buried their precious food. But the damage to the grass seems too severe for a little squirrel. So my guess is a stray cat, I’ve seen one prowling through the backyard a couple of times.
Of course whatever it is seems about camera shy, but hopefully we’ll be able to identify the culprit soon.
