From alarm systems, Home Security Camera Systems, and even spy cameras, these products are becoming more and more popular for a variety of reasons. Some of the them are for personal protection, others are to spy on other people, like neighbors, employees, and even care givers. Are we becoming a Nation of paranoid people or is there a need for all of these products?

With all the bad news these days about nannies who are stealing from their employers. Reports about caregivers that are abusing the people they are supposed to be taking care of. Also nefarious activities of business employees, as well as thieves and robbers, there is certainly the need for covert surveillance. With the economy the way it has been, more and more people are setting up alarms, and other Home Security Camera Systems to protect themselves, as well as spy cameras set up in a wide variety of businesses, institutions, and public places. This equipment is getter better as technology develops, and these devices are getting smaller and more easily concealed

Why use a Monitoring Security Company

The problem with most monitoring security companies is the delayed response. An intruder enters your house, he then has to trip the motion detector. The motion detector has to alert the monitoring company. The monitoring company then has to call the main house number. Once someone answers the phone the monitoring company then request a secret pin or pass pharse. The burglar can stall a few seconds buying time. Then when the buddy has what he needs they are out the door. By the time the phone is hung up, and the burglars are out the door atleast 5 minutes has gone by.

Police reports and studies have shown that with in 8 minutes a burglar is in your house got your valuables and out the door. By the time the monitoring company calls the local police, and they police arrive on the scene, your house is empty. No burglar in site, and your valuables on the way to a pawn shop for cash. The bad news is there is no home security camera systems installed, just motion detectors, so no one knows who was in your house.

I am not saying these companies do not work. I am saying when you do a DIY home security camera system you will know you are protecting yourself. There are many devices on the market that can notify you by phone that there is an intruder in your house, video the intruders and what they did, and the more hi-tech ones allow you to go online and see for yourself who is in your house. These devices can be as little as 100 dollars. Cool right? Yes it is. Especially if you are debating on paying monitoring companies a monthly fee, a deposit, and a down payment if your credit score is bad, plus an installation fee.

Most of the devices on the market that help you protect your home are simple to hook up. The ones that are not come with instructions and can easily be done in a few hours. So if you are debating on a home security camera system then in my opinion "DIY." When you DIY you will not pay a monthly monitoring fee, expensive installation charge, and you can tailor it to your needs.

Do you need:

Motion detectors

Intruder deterrants

Surveillance cameras (hard wired or Wireless)

Electronic Barking Dog Alarms

Spy Cameras

You name it you can find at a fairly descent price. The rest of the modules on this page will discuss the different home protection, and home security camera systems options and varieties.

Motion Detectors

Since the last module discussed professional home monitoring companies. We thought it would be best to start with motion detectors. Most of the professional companies base their security monitoring systems on motion detectors. Motion detectors work well to detect movement in your home while you are away or at night while you are sleeping. However why pay someone a monthly fee to monitor the motion in your house. You maybe thinking "to monitor the motion in my house" Did you know you can a motion detector system for your home for less than 120 dollars. But wait there are no monthly fees. Oh and the base unit does something very interesting. When the detectors detect movement in your house, the base unit automatically dials number programmed in it. Once the numbers are dialed it lets the home owner know there has been an unwanted entry. If the number dialed is not answered then it dials another number prgrammed in the memory.

HomeSafe® Wireless Home Security System : With the HomeSafe® Wireless Home Security System you can know that when ever there is a break in you will be alerted. There are no wiring, cutting sheet rock, or expensive installation. You just hang the Home safe wireless home security system up around your house like you would a smoke alarm.

This easy affordable system brought to you by the home security camera systems can save you money, time, and stress.


Electronic Barking Dog Alarm

When thinking of home security camera systems and other security devices. We often dont think about other inexpensive ways of protecting our home. Example is the ingenious Electronic barking dog alarm.

Sometimes just the sound of a huge ferocious dog will scare off a would be burglar. Theres nothing like the sound a 80 pound rottweiler's ferocious bark and loud growl to tell someone they are not welcomed.

Unfortunately we all dont have that k9 companion, often where we live dont allow dogs. With the electronic barking dog alarm you dont have vet bils, feeding cost, and you dont have to worry about the pet deposit.

This multifunctional BARKING DOG ALARM system uses an electronic radar-wave sense control. This technology allows it to see through wood, cement, brick, glass, etc. This will stop any intruder in his or her tracks. Who want to come face to face with a ferocious house protecting watch dog.

You place the electronic dog barking alarm any place you think an intruder will enter. When they come with in the 10 feet perimeter they are surprised by kujo. No feeding, house training, or taking it out for a walk. The BARKING DOG ALARM system requires just batteries.

So when thinking home protection cameras, or security cameras think also of stopping the intruder before he or she breaks in. The is just another way of keep your house safe and protected.

Dummy Camera

No matter how many guns we have we still need some type of home security camera systems and other home safety devices. There are many products out today that you can use to protect your home.

One simple easy product in the home security camera system section is a dummy camera. You will be amazed at how a fake security camera will deter a burglar. Why do people buy dummy cameras, mostly the price. Dummy cameras as a home protection camera is good only for deterant, it works but not all the time. When the burglar wants to live on the wild side no dummy camera is going to stop him or her. Actually no home security camera system is going to stop him or her. That is when other home security devices come in to play.


Wireless Indoor IP security Camera

The Wireless Indoor IP Camera. This is another great hi tech home security camera system for your home or office. The great thing about wireless security cameras is they use an IP address. Why is this important in home defense? You can get on your computer and via the internet log into the cameras system admin and you are able to see who are what is in your home.

Wall Clock Hidden Camera

You can have all the equipment you need outside, but if the intruder decides to go inside any way. Catch the action on hidden cameras placed through out your house. You then can see everything the intruder did and where he went. This is useful for your insurance and police evidence.

The inside home security cameras can ba a simple thing such as a wall clock hidden camera. Everyday items turned into hidden cameras. Why? intruders do not suspect that. Once inside, most intruders take off their mask because it gets hot. No one is home so why not breathe. Once the mask is off he looks up at the clock to see what time it is, and now you have him on camera.

Home protection cameras is more than just placing them on the outside. It is a wise thing to place some on the inside, one great camera is the wall clock hidden camera. You never know when you will catch the intruder on camera, and have him red handed.

The Nanny Camera

If you have kids and often have baby sitters watching them. That is just a fact of life, as much as we want to be there all the time we cant. So often we have to rely on someone else to watch our loved ones, even if it is not kids, maybe your elderly father or mother. That is why I want you to know that the nanny camera, or nanny cam has gone past the teddy bear camera.

A few of those cameras: the wall clock hidden camera, the exit sign hidden camera, the alarm clock hidden camera, the wall socket hidden camera, and the plugin air freshener hidden camera, and as well as the teddy bear hidden camera.

Most nannies, and baby sitters, are aware of the teddy bear camera. They also know that the camera is usually in the kids room. What they dont know about is the other cameras listed above. So instead of catching them misbehave in the kids room, you can catch them in the living room, kitchen, or the other places you can have a hidden camera.

Technology is great, and we offer some of the best home protection cameras and home security cameras money can buy, at an unbeatable price. Some of the best home security equipment cost under 200 dollars.


Electrical Outlet Hidden Camera for personal protection security

In the hidden camera arsenal we present the Electrical Outlet Hidden Camera. This hidden camera with built in dvr looks like a real electrical outlet. Robbers, nannys, the plumber, your guest will never know the difference. This is a clever device for "personal protection security" that many will overlook and think of it as nothing more than a electical outlet.

I read reports about nannies who are stealing from their employers, caregivers that are abusing the people they are supposed to be taking care of, nefarious activities of business employees, as well as thieves and robbers. So is this paranoria? No the need to protect our love ones and out property.

Now with the economy the way it has been, more and more people are setting up alarms, and other home security devices, and home protection cameras, personal protection security to protect themselves, as well as spy cameras set up in a wide variety of businesses, institutions, and public places.

Well now that I am off my rant visit the Electrical Outlet Hidden Camera to add to you arsenal of home protection cameras, personal protection security. If you do not have any home security this is a great place to start.


Diversion Safes

A diversion safe is a must have when building your home protection arsenal. Sometimes the cheapest protection is the best protection in defending your property. Diversion safes are made to look, and feel like common house hold items. Items that criminals could care less about.

Diversion safes examples:

-A&W root beer diversion safe, looks just like a real unopened can of root beer.

-Aqua Net hair spray diversion safe, looks like a real can of hair spray.

-Scotch guard diversion safe, looks like a can of scotch guard.

-other diversion safes, can of beer, tire seal gunk, parmesian cheese shaker, jar of peanut butter, to name a few diversion safes.

-also the plug in outlet diversion safe, mounted in the wall and looks like an outlet.

Diversion safes are a inexpensive way to hide you valuables in plain site. So when burglars are running around looking for watches and jewelry, they dont notice the diversion safe. Who is going to steal a bottle of hairspray.

Home protection and pepper spray

When thinking about protecting your home or family at home. You should think of pepper spray. In the cases where intruders come in your home while you and you family are at home the best defense is dialing 911 and protecting yourself. One way of prtecting yourself is having pepper spray nearby or with in reach.

Buying pepperspray for your person for out and about and at home is another way of protecting yourself and your family. When the burglar comes in and he is in reach just a few sprays to the face and the burglar will be subdued with pain and begging for help.

Please know the laws in the state you live in before buying pepper spray. Some states such as Massachussettes pepper spray is illegal or have restrictions.


130db personal Alarm

Protecting yourself in public is as just important as protecting yourself at home. With the 130db alarm you can do just that. You can carry this alarm on you in your purse or on your belt. It is designed to draw attention to any crisis when the strap attached to the alarm pin is pulled.

This portable personal alarm is great for home, hotel rooms, college dorms, as well. You just simply attach the alarm to window and doors when the door or window is opened the alarm sounds.

Not a bad deal for the little bit of pocket change. This alarm is less than 10 bucks. The security and peace of mind while out in public, at a hotel room, or even in a dorm is a relief. This is well worth the 10 bucks.


Extreme College Survival and Personal Protection Kit

We like to think that home protection, well really is family protection. Family is very important and we would do anything to protect them. However as kids get older they will leave the nest. They will go out and get their own place or go off to college. That is a big stressor to some parents. If you could be there all the time I know you would. But their is something for them as well, something to help protect them in their dorm or new rental.

Here are a few facts:

Every 2 minutes someone in the US is sexually assaulted.

One property crime happens every 3 seconds.

One burglary occurs every 10 seconds.

One violent crime occurs every 20 seconds.

One aggravated assault occurs every 35 seconds.

One robbery occurs every 60 seconds, or 1 minute.

So you have a kid going off to college, or even niece or nephew. They definately need personal protection security. How can you be there to protect them all the time, well you cant. Even if you could they would probably eventually tell you to leave. A great kit from Safe Family Life called the" Extreme College Survival Kit." This kit is put together by professionals in the home and family protection industry.

the Kit Includes:

-Lipstick Pepper Spray (1)

-Nap Alarm (1)

-1/2 oz Pepper Spray with Visor Clip (1)

-2 oz. Pepper Spray with Wall Mount (1)

-1/2 oz. Pepper Spray with Keychain (1)

-Diversion Safe - Book (1)

-Electronic Pocket Whistle (1)

-Door Stop Alarm (1)

-Cell Phone Lite (1)

-All batteries included

-Products Instructional Manual

Home protection is a peace of mind, but Family protection is a greater peace of mind. For those of you with kids or love ones going off to college or out on their own protecting them should be a peace of mind as well. They do need personal protection security while as well. These also make a great gift, house warmer, christmas gift, or whatever bow you decide to put on it.


Pool Protector

One thing people forget about when protecting their home for themself and their family is thinking past burglars and intruders. Did you know that more than 900 children between 1 and 14 die each year in drowning accidents. In California, drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for children 1-4 years of age. So the question is how to properly protect your family from this accident. One thing people do is put a fence around the pool and lock. Even with this accidents can still occur. What if you forget to shut and lock the gate.

When a child or pet falls into your unsupervised pool the alarm automatically sounds an alarm. It's portable, self-contained and light weight. Entry into the pool will be detected by the Pool Alarm's electronic sensor, triggering a loud pulsating alarm at the unit and inside your house from the remote receiver. The Pool Alarm sits on the pool deck as shown in the picture. After you install the Pool Alarm, it can't be deactivated; it is always in the alarm ready mode until you put it in Sleep Mode. If someone who does not know how to put the Pool Alarm in sleep mode attempts to remove the alarm, it will sound an alarm.

So instead of just alerting you that someone or pet has fallen in the water, it can also deter unwanted guest, possibly neighborhood kids trying to sneak in for a midnight swim. This is a great tool to add to your home protection system. This is just another tool that will help protect you and your family.
