Forgetful

I am a forgetful person. There were times where I walk all the way back to my car because I forgot if I locked it or not. On several occasions, I even drove back home because I wasn’t sure if I closed the garage door.

Well, most of the time, it was fine. I forgot things like locking the car and closing the garage door because they are simple and repetitive tasks. From what I know, it’s a common phenomenon. Lots of people experience it, where they snap out of a daze in the middle of a drive and realize that they’re almost at their destination, but don’t remember the commune.

When you get into a routine, it’s easy for tasks to slip your mind. Reaching for the garage door remote is a reflex for me, and so is locking my car.

Even though I know this, there were many times where I worried so much that I checked anyway. The reason I worry is because of the consequences. If I really did forget, then anyone could potentially access my belongings.

Cameras have been a method to get some peace of mind. I have a hidden camera in my car that keeps watch over my things. A CCTV system watches over my house. In the unlikely event that I do actually leave the garage door open or my car unlocked, I can verify the footage to see if anything happened.

There has been only two occasions where I did really leave my car unlocked. Thankfully, nothing bad happened, even though the car was unattended for a large chunk of the day. The surveillance system also helps ease my worries over possible burglaries.

It’s always a relief to be free from paranoia and anxiety.

Children are wild, and love to interact with everything. This is a good trait to have, since it’s how kids learn. At the same time, it can also cause inconveniences at home. Children often play around with anything they can find, and don’t recognize when something is valuable or fragile.

If you have kids at home, you might want to consider having diversion safes for some of your more important objects. You shouldn’t ever underestimate how resourceful children can be when they are exploring. They can find ways to climb over barriers and reach heights you didn’t consider possible for them.

Divergent safes, especially ones located in walls or clocks, give you a place to put valuables that doesn’t interest children.

The purpose of the divergent safes is also to keep objects out of a burglar’s hands. Burglars often don’t have a lot of time when they’re stealing from a house, and try to take the most valuable object immediately available.

Divergent safes can not replace a surveillance system, since it can only protect a few objects and doesn’t help catch criminals. However, it is a cheap and reliable method to protect irreplaceable objects such as antique photographs or family mementos.

A decent surveillance system will assist the authorities in catching burglars, but recorded footage doesn’t always guarantee the return of stolen items. Your most precious belongings should be stored away in a safe and unnoticeable location.

Lost Keys

I tend to lose track of things in my home, small things like my keys or my phone in particular. I’m sure this is a problem for a lot of other people as well. The solution I had always turned to was to ‘retrace my steps’ and go to everywhere I’ve been until I find what I lost. This solution works eventually, but it isn’t something I would want to do when I’m on a tight schedule.

What I have started to do now is utilize the hidden cameras I have set around my home. They record whenever they detect motion, which means that they have a record of me whenever I pass by. It is much easier to remember what rooms I had been in rather than every single spot I walked to. Even if I didn’t remember which rooms I had been in, I could just check the footage one by one.

Watching taped footage is much more effective than trying to remember off the top of my head. Memories can always get jumbled and unclear, which only makes locating lost objects harder. Shifting through footage taken over the day let me immediately see where I’ve been and where I carelessly placed all of my things.

There are times where your things fall into spaces that you wouldn’t think to check, like in the crack between couch cushions. It could take hours before you resort to checking those types of unusual locations, unless you’ve lost things in there often. These types of troubles could be avoided when you have a hidden camera lending a helping hand.

A hidden camera may be designed for something like catching burglars or watching babysitters, but cameras can always be used in other creative ways to assist you with life.

PackageThief

If you’ve ever ordered products off of the internet, you run a bit of risk during the delivery.

Online shopping has become hugely popular. This also means that many people often receive deliveries containing expensive items. When people aren’t home, some delivery services end up leaving packages by the front door. Usually the package is discovered and taken into the home by the owner, but in some unfortunate cases the package is stolen by a stranger.

This is especially a problem during the release times of a new product. A recent example would be the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 video game consoles. If the customer isn’t home when the system is delivered, the large and noticeable package would likely sit at the doorstep for many hours. A stranger may see the package as they go by your home, and could be tempted into stealing it. Worse still, there are some people who actively look around for doorstep packages, or even stalk delivery vehicles.

A hidden camera placed outdoors under a disguise will help you immensely if you ever run into this type of problem. When it is placed by the front door, you will be able to record every face that ever walks over to your front step. You will also get clear images with what they may bring and what they may take. If the camera is able to help you recover just a single valuable package, it will have saved you a large amount of money.

A disguised outdoor camera can also protect you from burglars and other types of criminals. A camera low to the ground can capture more details of a criminal’s entire figure, which helps officers with search and identification. The camera itself will likely be ignored by most criminals, since it will be disguised as something that is not profitable to steal.

Thieves cost their victims a large sum of money. It is always advised to be protected from theft, or to have a method to recover your losses. Recorded footage is always the best proof of criminal activity, and will greatly assist you and the officers of the law.
