Dash camera question

I'm planning on getting a dash camera for my car ( had my car egged 3 times already on different days) and I think I had enough. Question is will it drain my battery or will I be okay? I see a lot of cameras going cheap on eBay. Don't know if I should get those ones or get the high quality ones. I really take care of my things and with the looks of it someone really hates me and don't know why. Someone must have a really strong arm, with the impact of the egg it damaged the paint on 3 different places it got hit. I Don't really want to blame anyone, but I have a feeling it could be my brother since he always talks bad about me. Making me think it could be him, since I don't have any haters (I'm a very nice and calm person).

Would the camera be able to see at all angles? And if you find out its your brother, what would/could you do? Have charges filed against him? Tough call.

As to battery drain, I doubt it would drain a battery in a day or two. You could always put a switch on it, and turn it off when not in use if it requires a hard wiring type install, or maybe install an accessory plug on it and plug it into the dash's accessory outlet, then unplug it when not in use.

I'd spend more time with trying to figure out why your brother is the potential culprit though.

Dash camera question

There's cameras that can see at a 180 angle and are able to see in the dark. Also there's ones that it goes on standby mode when it doesn't see any movement. When it detects anything, it turns on and starts recording. I think I'll buy one of those, as my car only gets egged at night. I kind of know why he would egged my car but that is more of a personal thing. Hopefully I'm wrong and it's not him. Okay back to the dash camera, I plan on connecting it to the fuse box so I don't have any cables hanging and make it look clean. I would like to know if anyone had any experience with any dash cam?

The paint is getting messed up because its egg, not because it was thrown hard. The egg whites will eat right the hell through your paint in pretty short order so you need to wash it IMMEDIATELY if you see a fresh egging or something.

Dash cam should not drain your battery enough to keep the car from starting if you run the car every day.

Thanks I appreciate it, hopefully this stops once I know who it is. Do you connect it with the stuff included or do you have it connected to the fuse box?

Well he's 27 he should be mature enough. I mean I just turned 23 and finishing college and he's still living at my parents house, not going to school, and 3 kids. I don't want to think he has some hate or jealousy against me, just cuz they always see me working on my car. I work hard to get the things I want.

It will be a really nice shiny thing to be on the dash, no doubt you will be fixing the broken window when they steal it.

I plasti dipped it black so you can't really see it since my interior is black. I'm one step ahead.

Did you ever get a cam and catch the person? I use a cobra CDR 900 and love it and it does not drain my battery if I leave it on.
