    No point in posting in the classifieds, and doesn't really merit its own thread, so I thought I'd start a general thread with all the pointless but cool toys I find on my travels across t'web.

    That'd be great for doing the chase trails at night!

    I don't want one but I desperately need one.
    A door camera to see who is ringing my door bell and then I can decide if I want to answer it. The only thing that I think may be a problem is if it is parcel that has been put on my doorstep - any way round seeing the whole of the outside door space to see who and what is on the other side of my door

    Loads of cheap cctv systems on the market. I'm forever getting emails for various types (wireless would be easier to install). Mount the camera above the door & you'll be able to see as much as you want. A quick Google should come up with loads.

    The doorbells work out cheaper when you start adding in the cost of sorting it and securing it for use while not home, the electricity for running the PC or NVR to store the recordings, etc

    I ended up just getting a Ring 2, serves me well.
