i have both

on the mlbtv app on the appletv i can watch 2 games at once. on the roku jawn i cannot. nhltv is essentially the same product so id reckon its the same thing there.

apple tv is more expensive and has a better, more advanced interface. roku is choppier and simplistic. in essence they both do the same things and roku is cheaper.

no i know what you meant...but the only apple thing i have is an iphone but would never watch tv on it

You use the Apple TV to display content on your tv so that you don't have to watch on your phone, dingus.

My old company used Nortel...seemed to work well enough.

Should this thread be re-named to Technology?

Since I moved into my house about 10 years ago, somebody climbed up through the kitchen window to steal my ex-girlfriends purse (recovered), somebody else (or maybe the same person) broke-in, while I was in NOLA getting robbed by a girl, to try to steal my shtein (neighbors called the cops and all items the thief had were retrieved), and then a few days ago, some motherfarger tried to drill out the lock cylinder but were not able to gain entry.

Considering how popular my house is, I want to buy a couple security cameras to mount around the doors. I'd prefer them to be small enough that they wouldn't be easily noticed. Does anybody have any recommendations?

Also, do private citizens have cost efficient access to facial recognition software?

No, you should have started a Home Security thread.

For your exterior, it's actually better for cameras to be visible as their presence serves as a deterrent.  Thief sees cameras, thief chooses a new house to rob.  Most important thing about exterior cameras is placement, as you want them to have visibility of the most vulnerable entry point(s) to your home, but you also want them to be mounted high enough that they can't easily be tampered with.

Probably not, but there are a lot of wifi enabled smart lock systems popping up on the market over the last few years.  I haven't really looked into them myself so I couldn't recommend any particular brand over another but they're definitely out there.

Though it may be hard to believe, it's actually a nice enough neighborhood. I'm assuming the latest incident was a neighborhood kid because I'm pretty sure you can't drill a lock out like that to gain entry, but I think I've seen it in a movie.

The facial recognition would be to enable visiting the perpetrator at his home; not unlock my door for me. If it's a kid, no reason to get the police involved, and if it's an adult, maybe I can help him find a job or something.
