Big A

The Neighborhood of the future!

9 posts in this topic

This is part of Fridays 20/20 about neighbors that talks about some new use of technology. It show a website called Nextdoor.com where people can verify there location and put up their security cameras network address so others in neighborhood can view them, and it also lets people talk to each other. It limits the access to cameras and info by dividing it into neighborhoods. It looks really neat and they said the site has been growing exponentially and has helped solve and prevent many crimes also.

They also show a network camera that works great with site, but is really neat little camera by itself, the DROPCAM. It is wifi and takes literally 60 seconds to set up. Then you can put it anywhere and it only requires a power wire. It also comes with a free app to view it live over phone or any Internet device. A really neat feature is that it's got a motion detector, so it can be set to email or send you a video clip to your phone if motion sensor is activated while you're away. The camera is small and has great 720p picture quality. The only negative is that you can't record locally, it only records to cloud and cost money $9.99 a month for a 7 day memory and 30 day memory for $29 a month with cheaper yearly dates. On the other hand, my front door camera is set up the same way to send me a video clip when front motion is activated and alarm is armed (since it would mean I'm not home) but the equipment and time and programming to do that was thousands of dollars, this camera does it all for $149 retail.

Meh, I've been recording my neighbors for years.

 

I just hope nobody's house burns down because their fire detectors aren't real....

I would never live in a fuging neighborhood. I would never want to be that close to a bunch of losers and their annoying kids. I'll stay on my 70 acres of privacy and let you nerds bumb elbows with your neighbors

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
