    Last night I woke up around 4am to the sound of 3 knocks against what sounded like my bedroom window. I've heard noises and bangs before when drifting of to sleep and assumed it was just my brain coming out of a deep sleep. I told my wife about it this morning and she said that it's happened to her this week as well. The most reasonable conclusion is something just happens to hit our window but doesnt seem likely. What makes it more strange is we have a full walk up attic and I had a security camera up there for awhile. Last week I was up there and noticed it was turning to look at where I was. So I unplugged it and brought it downstairs and when I get downstairs my sons toy is playing a nursery song with no one around. Adding to that last weekend I was working on the bedroom you access the attic from and put a new doorknob with a lock on the attic door. So now the attic door locks and we start hearing knocks at night. I'm sure it's all coincidence but still creepy. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

    All kinds of stories like this around here!

    Quick question- When you noticed the security cam was following you, why did you unplug it and take it downstairs? Is it not a motion-detector camera? Did you check the security cam footage to see if there was anything odd on it?

    That's what I was wondering, too.

    Hi Pat I had a similar experience , I was playing on my computer right next to a window and I heard a knocking on the window. That is hard to do because there the screen on the outside of the window and curtains on the inside. The next morning I went to see if I could see anything in the snow nothing , but a little ways away I did see very strange print in the snow, I have been a outdoors person all my life and have seen strange prints before but nothing like this one.

    Hi Pat. Did you take a pic of the print ? Sounds like something may be going on. Was there a history of activity in the attic and that’s why the camera up there? Have you had issues with strange activity before ? I would not answer the knocks, you don’t want to give it an implied consent. Have you brought any new item into the house that could have an attachment ? Are you remodeling? I know it’s a lot of questions but I’m trying to narrow down the possibilities. you may find this link helpful.

    I had put the camera up there originally because we have heard noises before. I brought it down with me that day because it was originally a nursery camera and my wife wanted it put back. Hearing it move reminded me to grab it. I had motion record set on it but it was picking up a lot of dust moving.

    I have no pictures from this time. But I do have a photo from the attic with something odd looking to me in it in the bottom left. Doesnt seem like dust or bug to me. We have been remodeling the entire house from the studs up at this time.

    So that circled spot is not a discolored spot on the wood or a reflection? I only have my phone to look at it, is there something in the gray area?

    No it's not a spot on the wood or a reflection. When the picture was taken the house had been totally empty for 6 months so there was nothing there. I've messed with the image on photoshop and I can tell its behind the wood and transparent. It just seems to be a very odd shape and look to me, but I guess it could be as simple as a spider web catching the light just right. Although other pics of that area didnt show anything.
