Video Monitoring

Our chickens have mysteriously stopped producing eggs over the last two weeks. I'm a deeply untrusting person, and it occurred to me that one of the neighbor kids might be harvesting our eggs for us.

I set up an old iPhone as a motion activated camera, using an app called Presence. I put the phone on a tripod and aimed it at the backyard.

I got over 40 false-positives, caused by bushes moving in the wind, and one short video of Eva. I didn't catch any humans on video today, though.
