I sure hope someone recognizes this door checker.

And the best comment I have seen on NextDoor so far LOL:

"Camera quality is only as good as the amount of money you’re willing to spend. If someone knows this woman a grainy picture doesn’t matter that much you would still recognize her I would if I knew her."

So, they spend more money on this crap, rather than on something good, right, gotcha. :cool:

Today's Nextdoor is someone driving up and stealing ferns of all things...

This is a Lorex system, but it shows how the wide-angle 2.8mm lens gives you a great overview, but not much detail beyond 10 feet.

In all seriousness, what would you do instead to change this setup?

This is another one from Nextdoor in my area. Granted these are screen grabs from Nextdoor, and probably the original versions would be better quality. But this is what the OP is showing and asking for help in identifying the perp. Ring cam mounted way too high and very wide angle. Trying to do too much with one cam.

ring 5-29-22.JPG OP posted this zoomed in shot hoping someone knows who this is.

@jumpinghippo1 - As @sebastiantombs suggested, the 5442-ZE or 5442-Z4E optically zoomed in to the pinch point is what is needed.

That poster had a wide angle probably 2.8mm which is a good overview camera. They would need to add a varifocal to IDENTIFY someone coming up the steps OR a 2.8mm a lot closer to the door.

^ yes there are lots of comments about which high school that hoodie is from and someone even went to that school's website and looked up his name and posted it. Now maybe that hoodie is stolen or not his. But someone should recognize him if he went to that high school.

Actually, not a bad set of stills.
I know I am preaching to the choir here, but those are terrible. Probably the best we've seen on this post, but still terrible.........

The perp is probably 20' from the camera and we still can't make out the last name. Poor choice of focal length strikes again as the driveway (which is clearly their intended capture) takes up only about half of the frame. That's 50% of the resolution going to unnecessary objects - which is why we can't read the letters on the back of the sweatshirt.
