The first part of this video is about how to quickly build a free basic home security system in under 5 minutes. I have listed many options for you, but you don’t have to choose all of them, work with what you have and is the best for you. It is easy — if you are a cell phone user, you should be able to do it. It is usable as it is, and will be sufficient for most users.
However, it is also possible to add features which will improve it. To help advanced users, I introduce a couple more phone apps to get you started. Through the explanation of how these apps work I explain the basics of internet and the home gateway router. I show the communications between different devices among different networks. Understanding this diagram will help you to debug all parts of your security system.
If you don’t have an old phone, you can buy a cheap prepaid smart phone for $10. There are two reasons a cell phone is cheaper than a dedicated security camera: 1. phone carriers subsidize phones. 2. cell phone sales have a higher volume than security cameras. In addition, cell phones usually have two cameras so that you can view both the front and back, and have audio so that you can scare the thieves.
Since it is easy and does not cost anything, why not give it a try? In my neighborhood, burglaries have been increasing. Some people blame this on California’s Prop 47. California’s Proposition 47 downgraded a variety of “non-serious, nonviolent crimes” that had previously been considered felonies to misdemeanors. A thief may now steal something under $950 on a daily basis and it will never rise to felony status. Without your own security cameras, it’s difficult to catch thieves unless they leave fingerprints. One by one my neighbors started buying security cameras and services. Even if you have already bought some cameras, this can complement them by adding even more cameras. I have covered every single one of my windows, and hope that in addition to providing camera footage of any motion around the house, this will also act as a deterrent to possible thieves.
So get your security cameras ready because the latest is that California will end cash bail next year. When the new law takes effect, thieves without money will no longer need to worry about cash bail because by definition theft is not a violent crime.
