My area? Maybe once every 7+ years. And even then its in February. It wasnt a few days ago it was in the 80s. Of course Texas is pretty damn big so north Texas does this all the time, but down nearer the coast we just dont get crap like this often. Most years an ice storm in February is about all we get in terms of precipitation other than regular rain.

We're scheduled to get a storm ,unknown amount though. We got about a foot last night. That's what's crazy up here with lake effect ,if the front stalls out ,it just keeps pumping snow inland like a giant snow maker til the front moves on.

There hasn't been a legitimately snowy winter there in a while. I gave up owning sleds when I lived in Simcoe, was pointless.

We had a single storm here in NB with near a meter of accumulation last year, by the end of feb, the snow pile next to my driveway was about 7' tall the entire length of it. Got a few days off work though, which was awesome.

Yessir, I have about 8 of those wireless Arlo cameras all over the place. Can be checked from any computer or smart device. You can turn 'em on whenever you want to check something, most of the time they are on a scheduler thing that turns them on when we are gone. They are motion activated and if they sense motion will start recording and the software will email and text you that something is going on so you can check. Along with the outside ones, I have one camera in the garage pointing at my dirtbikes and Ranger, one inside pointing directly at my big vintage Pioneer collection, one at my gun safes, one at the livingroom and front door from inside, etc. They detect any motion, they start recording and contact me so I can call the Sheriff Dept and then drive out to shoot the damn crook personally.

Actually started because I had a problem with armadillos wrecking my garden. Those little SOBs are like little backhoes and can literally wipe out your entire garden fast. Usually end of July going into August is pretty dry times here and they come up outta the woods and pastures lookin' for ground they can grub into to that is soft. So I got one of those cameras and put it on a t-post pointing at my garden and set it to text me when it sensed motion. So I put the phone by the bed, loaded up my 410 and waited. Eventually I got that damn thing and a few others since too. After a while you start seeing other places you can use 'em so we just bought more as time went on. The reason for ones inside is obvious, if someone trys to get my stuff in the house, bikes outside, etc, I will be notified instantly and can intervene. While we dont have crime like in the city, crooks are everywhere and Id rather be safe than sorry.

Its also nice to just able to check on things when you are gone with a click of a mouse or on your cellphone. Once time we had a wedding out of town and heard on the radio our area was getting hammered with bad weather, we can turn on cameras and check on the place.

Yessir, thats it.

You plug that base into your router and it syncs/communicates with the cameras themselves. You control them on the Arlo web-base software, via computer or any smart device. The online software hosting is free up to 6 cameras. After that, there is a small fee if you want more camera ability. I have the base system, and have added a camera here and there over the past few years when I see one show up on sale online somewhere. The base station will handle many of them. Since I got mine, they have come out with even higher res models and even ones that support voice/sound. Meaning, you can put one at your front door and you can talk to, and hear, whoever is out there. These things are very VERY easy to use. Only downside is the batterys do need replacing occassionally, but that contingent on how much they are used obviously, and what res you set them to. Historically, cameras have been forensic in nature as they only give you something to use to find a crook after they have done the act, these things notify you real-time and you can possibly stop the SOBs in the act. (as well as have video evidence.)

Sound interesting but the only thing that concerns me is battery life. I think with my OCD I would have a tendency to want to connect to and use them a lot. smile

Usually just wayward dogs coming passing through, sometimes our barn cats will set one off that at the carport. The one at the front gate catches hell alot because squirrels and birds set it off sometimes. Heck one time it was jackrabbits that got caught at night.



This is that storm I mentioned earlier, we were near Dallas and the radio said there were storms near our area so we cut on a few to see how bad it was, and it was pretty damn bumpy.



This was a few days ago when some alkyd paint was sent out to me.

Good stuff! I am glad that you are able to use this technology effectively and keep tabs on everything remotely. I am sure it makes your life much easier and a bit less stressful.
