My neighbors are harassing meto the point that I'm suing themand for months I've been sure they're disabling my Blink security cameras at night. They already broke into some wildlife cameras on my property, took out the SD cards, deleted the videos of themselves approaching the cameras and put the cards back in. Tonight I set up a cheap Panasonic video camera in a window in my house, and captured my neighbor driving down their driveway, turning off their car, and then pointing some sort of devicea laser? Infrared light? at the security camera on my front door. Whatever they're using is not handheld, because it moves smoothly up and down without any wobble whatsoever. They wait until dark, so my footage is awful. I lightened it in iMovie (can you tell I'm not a videographer?), but it's super grainy.

Does anyone have any idea what the heck they could be doing...and how I might get better video of them without using infrared light? I can't tell you how much this is creeping me out. If you want to see the bad video, PM me. Thanks!

I dont know much about it, but on TV shows I have seen bank robbers point a gadget at cameras and it makes a big white blob in the video. In essence, whiting everything out while they are up to no good. Maybe its that? Are they gearing up to rob you or what? Why are they doing all this, just for fun because they are jerks?

I've a low tech answer get a big agressive dog they'll think twice about coming in.

Of course you could always go and ask them what they are up to.

The bigger questions is WHY would they do this?

I can't possibly imagine what's in their minds, really. I don't understand why people harass other people. What a waste of precious time and effort, IMO.

I guess what I'm asking is, can anyone recommend a video camera good for shooting in low light? They seem to be able to defeat infrared devices, but not a regular video camera behind glass. In the meantime I'm planning to move because these people are not right in the head.

Yes, that's my guess. It seems to be their main form of entertainment.

No, theyve been at it for a while and I only recently thought to record them.

Notify the police.

Hi,
I must say that adopting a dog is a very good answer but it should not be the reason for having such an adorable animal.
Taking care of them should be our main reason.

If i may, I guess you should follow your instincts. Normally people tend to ignore and be more rational before any action. But If you are not comfortable at your place then why continue? It will be a waste of time. Even sue them will be too. Buying more new cameras will not solve your actual fear. It will lead you to some kind of paranoia.  if you can afford it find a new place. 

all the best, 

Uncle Pete

Keep documenting their actions and make notes. If anything comes of this, you'll have evidence in your favor.


Notify the police.

Even if the police can't do anything, until something illegal happens, making them aware of the situation is a good first step to getting something on the record, should you ever have to go to court. Don't stall, make the call.
