BTW the comments have been turned back on i must have turned them off while i was working on the site.
I know there aren’t many of you out there, but please feel free to comment or question.
One of the biggest worries that i have is about security in the new place. Not while i am actually IN the building, but when i am not there. I expect the moving to take a while and certainly installing all that crap on the roof will take a while, even once i have moved in, it seems to me that attaching lots of shiny bits and bobs all around a house is a lot like waving a flag to say there’s more inside! come and see! i haven’t had that problem before, especially when you can peep in my windows and see i don’t own anything worth stealing.
I had an idea to set up webcams around the house, not just to watch the cats sleep but to peek at my house when i am not there, it isn’t all that costly, but once i started poking around the internet I found the ISMART ALARM, package which came out this year. I have been reading reviews but so far no one has said anything bad about it. What it has going for it, is the price. The premium package that includes a 360 degree webcam is less than $200. Which puts it in my price range, it comes with a couple of the window/door sensors and a motion detector… a main device which communicates with my WIFI and sends me a message on my iphone AND the webcam lets me check out the situation. It also has an alarm and I can add more window sensors. I think in the future they are working towards adding more cameras, so the system can grow.
On the surface it looks like a cheap quick and clean set up that i can install in an afternoon while I am traveling back and forth to the new house. Whenever I get a new house. It’s funny i am not worried about anything i presently OWN getting stolen, cept for maybe my computer. Once I move I still won’t have anything worth stealing beyond the computer, EXCEPT for the Solar PV electric system. I think i just don’t want people to THINK that there’s something worth stealing.
