  2. We live in Montclair Hills on Arrowhead drive (right off of Shepard Canyon) and have had our cars broken into twice in the last three months. We’ve installed ADT but are still concerned about a home robbery. I know that other neighbors share the same concerns. What advice do you have?

    Thank you,

  3. I have been tasked with trying to find a way to set up video surveillance and possible recording of our small neighborhood. How can I get info on how and possibly who can do this sort of task? We are relatively small with about 247 houses, four entrances, pool area, and a roundabout area. Thanks.

    • Hi Lloyd,

      This web-site is intended to enable you to setup your own camera, ie. the “where” is “here” and the “who” is “you”.
