Setting up a security camera, possible multiple, capable of seeing in light and dark through use of on-camera IR LEDs and an IR floodlight donated to the shop over a year ago by Preauxphoto. These camera views will be available to anyone and everyone.


  • One or more surplus IR security cameras provided by Ratmandu



  • 23:17, 4 February 2010 (CST) Initial tests prove very promising both with a single IR security camera and in combination with the the IR floodlight. Current plan is to make them available only when the shop is dark by possibly tying them into a relay controlled switch box like JimShoe's !alert system.
