Thieves beware, we keep an eye on you!

May 24, 2019 – Today is the first “mixed” day: we are back to work at the bar after a 4-day break. Maria Luisa in the morning, Paolo in the afternoon / evening. Of course, in the remaining hours you don’t stand still! A few more boxes, a desk to empty, dust and prepare for moving, a first reflection on clothes, which will be finalized next week, deciding what to bring in the camper and what to keep at Paolo’s parents’ house.

And then a little more work on Falkor, with the installation of the Arlo Go camera which we will talk about in an in-depth test. We had a blacksmith made a steel disc, then painted black, which was fixed in place of one of the two loudspeaker grilles present in the cell (never used). The final result, allow us a little presumption, is very valid. So now, thanks to a Vodafone subscription for just € 5 a month, we have added some passive security.

To install the video camera, we used the place dedicated to the speakers (which are not in our Hymer: removed the grille, we used the existing holes to fix an “ad hoc” support
Inside the cell the video camera is placed elegantly all in all …
Here’s what you see with the Arlo camera

We know that the same result can be achieved with cheaper or adapted solutions (for example with an old smartphone and the Alfred app), but we like some small concessions to things well done every now and then. Beyond the solution adopted, that of remote surveillance seems an effective idea. If you have any doubts, look what happened to the “Bubris”!
