    Any info on what kind of surveillance the homeowner was using? I’m shopping for that type of thing and clearly this one worked for them! TIA

      No but simply safe and canary are good. Plus Costco has a good deal right now on a whole set up. Think there’s another one called the ring that you can actually talk through….. I had my house robbed last year. Locked down like fort knocks now lol

      I have a few IZON cams inside my house & a full on system for outside. With the IZON cams if you put them in key spots they will send notification to your phone of a motion event.

    Nice job by the police and homeowners. Glad to see they caught one finally

    Are you sure it was just a burglary? I live right around the corner and I’ve never seen this many police cars at once. Saw a man and a woman arrested earlier this afternoon as I drove by, but I count nearly 30 police vehicles! Seems excessive for a burglary.

    As we approached the intersection of 128th and Des Moines Memorial Drive from the east we could see all the police activity. We commented that there certainly was a major incident that had just happened. So we avoided that area.

    The Ring brand of camera’s, doorbells with camera’s and flood light with camera have great day and night video and you can talk through them – if they are on your porch etc.

    Sweet doggie just wanted some petting-time. Had no idea something bad was going on. So glad he was safe and not harmed!
