Keeping your eyes peeled is something that every detective knows how to do, but the average person, probably doesn’t notice half of the things in their surroundings that a trained detective does. This often results in crimes happening in your own home, and sometimes by people that you know and trust. If you have ever been the victim of a burglar coming into your home and steeling your valuables, you know how vulnerable and horrible you feel when your privacy is invaded. But if you have ever been a victim from someone who you invited into your home or someone who works for you, you will never forget the feeling, because you actually trusted this person, and they betrayed your trust.
If you have any type of employees or anybody else in your house when you aren’t there, you need to make sure that your belongings are secure. Think about all the people that are in your home on a weekly basis: you may have a house cleaning service come in, a babysitter, au pair, your children’s friends and repairmen. Sometimes you can’t always follow them around, and you have to leave people alone with your children or valuables.
There are some products that you can use in your home to keep your valuables and even your children, safer. One product that will help in keeping your home safe is a security camera. These aren’t as expensive as you may imagine, and come in many different varieties to best suit your needs. The most popular type of camera is a very small camera that you can hide anywhere in your house. This camera will take quality video of the area you want to keep an eye on and send it to your TV. If you want to catch someone in the act, you can record it with your own VCR, so you can have a permanent record. This is great, because you will be able to watch your babysitter to see if she is gets along with your children; or see that the housekeeper that you pay a lot is really working for her money or just shuffling around the dirt. Another great thing that you can do is keep an eye on your children. If they are playing in the living room, you can use it as a monitor, so you can watch what they are doing when you aren’t in the room. Another option if you don’t need video, you can get cameras that take still photos, and are activated by motion. The advantage to these is always something happening in the pictures, so you don’t have to worry about having pictures of nothing, these motion detector cameras can be put in other places, for example in your car or in the reception area of your office, so that you can discreetly take pictures of all of the customers when they come and go.
If you are worried about information that is transmitted over the phone, you can now keep your home business transactions safe with phone recorder. The phone recorders of today are much more advanced than they were just years ago, and no one will even notice that the conversation is being recorded. The phone recorders can capture your phone conversations 24 hours a day, and will hold hours and hours of conversations. This device will keep your business and family safe, because you will be able to re-listen to all of your phone conversations.
If you want to keep your home safe, you need to protect yourself from thieves you don’t know, and people you know, but wish you never did, you need to be aware of what you need to keep your property safe. Motion sensor cameras and hidden home security cameras will help to keep your property safe from those that are already in your home. Home security is something that you should think about to avoid the terrible feeling of someone who you trusted doing something to violate this trust.
