True, but what are the possibilities of losing everything you own in a civil lawsuit? (not a rhetorical question, I don't know)

You get lag in the systems from the live feed to when it posts on your phone. Sometimes it's a half second or so, sometimes 10 plus seconds. Sometimes I can watch the traffic at the stop sign in front of my house, sometimes it kinda cuts in and out.
That said, I love the fact that I can check on any of my 8 cameras anywhere I can get cell service. Peace of mind.

My system records everything on a DVR system...I'm actually hoping if worse comes to worse that the video will save my @$$ in court. To be honest, I wouldn't kill anyone unless I was crap in my pants scared to death and it was the only option left to protect me and my family.

Thanks for the opinions everyone.

That's a little bit of an embellishment and incorrect. You have the right to defend yourself and others from being victims of a forcible felony and no duty to retreat from a place in which you have the right to be. It also isn't limited to the home. It applies to your home, perspnal conveyance (vehicle), place of business, and anywhere else you have the right to be.

You can't simply shoot someone for being in the wrong place. That would be murder. Now if you have someone walk into your home, tell them to leave, and they are noncompliant (now tresspassing) and keep advancing then that's a different story as they've established intent.

You really gotta be careful in how you word such things. Seriously, it can be the difference in a prison sentence and continuing with your life. It's not a "right to kill" it's a right to reasonably defend yourself.

Some necessary reading on the subject:

Very possible. Plenty of people have been cleared of criminal charges just to have their lives ruined after a civil trial.

How can the person sue you if they're six feet under because they were stupid enough to break in and you shot them?

If you're thinking "well what if you shoot to wound", never shoot to wound. Wounds mean lawsuits.

My thoughts exactly. Most known case would be OJ. (I'm by no means implying that I feel he was innocent of the charges)

so.. what if your house also has an intercom and you use it to tell them to leavel? then you mount your camera shotgun to an rc car when they refuse?

what if you also mount a walkie talkie on that rc car so you can use it to tell them to leave?!

what if the rc car is shaped like jigsaw?!

this is starting to sound awesome...

you wanna play game?

The "victim" doesn't have to sue, their family or estate can take care of that. Just wait to see what happens in FL if GZ walks (which is highly likely).
