  1. Or you could buy one of these: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/trigger-guard-lock-id_8372268.html

    Hotmail query

    There is, but you need to know their email address in advance to add them to your safe senders list before they email you. Manually Add the Sender to Your Safe List If an existing email from the sender hasn't already been trapped in your junk folder, you can manually add him to your Safe List. Click on "Options" in the upper right corner of your Hotmail screen. Then click the link for "Safe and Blocked Senders" in the body of the page under Junk e-mail. Click the "Safe Senders" link and enter the email address you want to whitelist. Click "Add" to put it on your list.
  4. Yeah - also proportionate. New of other schools that have actually closed: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-51630931
  5. These are local to me and although not closed (yet) they have been affected by ski trips to Italy and put some parents/children in self-isolation (i.e - stay away from the schools). https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/leicester-news/staff-pupils-two-leicestershire-schools-3889880
  6. Yes - I do find the 1080 gives a decent picture but the IR range is limited. You would need something more `complex` (expensive). I'd always got for the highest possible picture quality. Let us know how you get on.

    I got tired just reading that! Keep up the good work.
  8. It was front page on BBC news but has since been moved. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51626844
  9. What you have linked to should be suitable. Yes, you'll need to wire stuff in but it seems fit for purpose. I'd recommend a DVR as it will record everything but can also be wired to a monitor/TV. I'd go for as close to 1080HD as you can get as the image quality is so much better than 720. 960 is pretty good as well. No point trying to use it for evidential purposes if the picture quality isn't great. I use wifi cameras for a horse yard but the IR only has a range of about 25m. They are great for the intended purpose but not a 100m long paddock. I do find that with CCTV, you get what you pay for. Good luck with it.
  10. I did say things had changed! 😄

    Egypt Visa

    I fell foul of that many years ago on my first trip to Sharm. I didn't know the difference and they weren't about to explain it to me!

    Mains powered through what I think is a 12v adaptor. They also have a slot for a micro SD card, so if you wanted, you can set them up to record 24/7 or be movement activated (that's more of a security feature). They can also be set up to email you movements alerts etc bu tthey tend to false activate a lot a those sorts of motion activated features aren't really that useful. They work on wifi but also have a socket for a data cable on the back, so can be hard wired if needed. For general dog watching etc. they are really good. We've got some `better` (outdoor) ones for a horse yard and they are brilliant.

    Egypt Visa

    If you fly in via Hurghada and buy the usual $25 tourist visa on entry, that should cover you for 30 days and covers Cairo. It's only if you fly into Sharm and buy a cheaper `Sinai only` visa (with a view to not leaving the Sinai region), that you would need the full $25 tourist visa to go to Cairo. From what you say, you should be covered. https://www.lonelyplanet.com/egypt/visas

    I have a couple of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07JZFQ8MC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Just connect them to your wifi and you use the app on the phone to access. Camera be remotely operated to move up and down and also has sound and you can even talk to the dog! There are plenty of these sorts of things out there. I recommend that you get 1080HD as picture quality is so much better. They also have IR night vision.
