WARNING: Removing this video surveillance camera to kill evidence of your robbery will do you chickenfeed because the video of you is being stored in the cloud!
We’ve all heard of the bright light that goes on over the garage when someone steps onto the driveway. That’s so old that some burglars aren’t miffed by this in the least. However…such a motion detection system can also trigger video surveillance and notify the police. And there’s so much more that today’s security technology can do:
- Send an alert to your smartphone that something anomalous has been detected inside your house; you can then view the interior in real time where this detection occurred, even if you’re across the country. Don’t be surprised if in the future, the homeowner could—with a single tap of a smartphone key—activate a net from the ceiling to deploy and engulf an intruder, holding him till the cops come. I WANT THAT.
- Even if you live in a virtually crime-free neighborhood and have no valuables…you can still be endangered by non-human threats like gas leaks, fires and trip-and-fall hazards in dark areas with triggered lighting. A home security system can protect you from these variables.
- Burglars aren’t fooled by the constant light that’s on to make it seem like you’re home when you’re not. However, security systems can create a pattern of on-and-off light use when you’re away, simulating that someone’s actually home.
- If you still have an old-fashioned wireful security system, it’s time to switch to wireless. Wireless eliminates the possibility of a burglar cutting the wires. Furthermore, a wireless system can include a small remote that can activate and deactivate the system, like when you want to go outside at night with the dog to do its business.
If you were to ask 1,000 home burglary and invasion victims, “Did you think the crime could ever happen to YOU?” What do you think they’d all say? Stop making excuses and get a home security system if you already don’t have one.

- Tips to Home Security Lighting
“Don’t be afraid of the dark” is a reassurance that burglars never need; they need to hear, “Be afraid of the lights.” A house that’s often dark sends a flare to burglars that nobody’s home, or, at least, that nobody will see the burglar doing what he does best. Most people know of the automatic timing devices
- The Futuristic secure and Smart automated Home is here
A burglary occurs every 15 seconds. The chance of your home being broken into is higher than you’d think. The good news is that today’s alarm systems are “not your father’s alarm.” Twenty years ago, a contractor had to spend a week tearing up your walls ceilings, and windows to retrofit a messy, hardwired security system.
- Burglars using Video to stake out Homes
Yes, burglars do use video surveillance to case homes. Sometimes burglars aren’t not so dumb, like the ones who use video to case homes. A video camera the size of a matchstick has been discovered in the yards of several homes in North Texas’s upscale Dalworthington Gardens, where there have been break-ins. According to the Dalworthington Gardens police,
