    Surveillance can come very in handy when you are talking about urban survival but people don't like to rely on it too much because outside surveillance (cameras) can easily be disabled by another person. Such equipment is useful for observing your environment and people's activities near your property.

    Do you guys have any sort of surveillance equipment set up at your home? If, so which? Do you have any interesting stories where it came in handy?

    I use a bionic ear (directional microphone) it is like a poor mans radar!
    At night when it is still you can hear some amazing stuff!
    This is the stuff I have heard and verified to be correct by other means!
    Snoring at 12.5km away
    Sex at 9km
    motorbikes at 23km
    gunshots at 31km
    racking a mini14 at 2.1km
    my front gate opening and closing at 2.6km
    a guy pissing into a puddle at 900m
    campfire conversation at 4.2km
    whispers at 500m
    dogs barking at 6.4km
    freight train at 53km
    the neighbours bull doing the girls at 6.1km (feedlot so had to avoid pointing mic in that direction as there were plenty of girls and a few bulls so it was an allnight everynight thing!)
    paddleboats at 11km
    I could go on
    anything more than a light breeze spoils long distance stuff
    but I have busted poachers with it a few times!

    Haha, made me laugh hard. Sounds very interesting, fun and creepy at the same time.

    Keith, what cameras did you order? I'm currently looking into getting some too but I find it hard to choose when there are so many options presented on various sites.

    Me and my partner are deciding for it because it would make me feel safer, especially if I'm home alone at night and so on. We have a medium size property.

    Creepy sometimes yes!
    Was expecting visiters once and I had been listening to them coming up my driveway for some time, at gate number six still
    nearly 2km away they stalled their vehicle and I could hear the click click of a flat battery so I jumped into my 4x4 and took jumper leads down there to get them started again.
    Really creeped the woman out when I already knew the battery was flat! She flatly refused to believe I heard it at that range
    until I told her how she had cursed and blamed her husband for it! repeating some of the words she used!

    Not perfect as there can be some major interference sometimes but I find it worth it
    As I am transitioning to a large RV in the near future I am considering mounting one on the RV, not sure of its worth in a mobile situation!

    I'm thinking of having a survival kit like Sheldon Cooper's :)
    - Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking
    -Whistle to signal for help
    -Flashlight and extra batteries
    -Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
    -Manual can opener for food
    -Local maps
    -Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger
    -Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
    -9mm handgun
