An anonymous reader writes "There has been a rash of dog thefts in my area, with dogs being stolen out of back yards and even right out of homes. I love my rescue mutts, and would be devastated were they to suffer a similar fate. So, aside from refurbishing the antiquated alarm system in my older home (reusing the sensors with a more modern controller), I would like to install motion-sensing security cameras outside, and herein lies the rub. I live in the woods. Pretty deep in the woods. So, ideally I would like a motion-sensing vision system to be able to discern human forms from wildlife. If I'm going to be getting alerts on my phone for movement near the house, I would really like not to be desensitized by a high false alarm rate. So far my searching has proved fruitless, so here I am asking the Slashdot community: does anyone know of a vision recognition security system that can pick out human forms from a variety of wildlife? Thanks in advance."
