Spy Equipment or Just Your Home Security
Home security and protection, making use of electronic or spy equipment, has become a substantial business nowadays thanks largely to the burglars and robbers in our midst. The technology available to help you stop the theft and damage of your own property is incredible and will become ever more cutting-edge as time goes by and the science advances even further. Consider this question -when do we cross the line between securing our properties and in actual fact just spying? A bit of a moral dilemma indeed!
The Old Way – For Home Security
Residential security measures in the past involved the fitting of a few extra spot lights and maybe having a motion detector on the outside of the house if we were really advanced. And then we began to get a little bit more state-of-the-art – having intruder alarms connected inside and outside, all set to go off when anyone trespassed or the next door neighbors kitty cat walked past, an event to wake the whole street! As technological innovation gets increasingly sophisticated so too does all the ways folks protect and monitor their homes. So when is it prudent to have this type of surveillance equipment and when are we just plain snooping on the neighbors?
What’s Acceptable Spying?
For me, monitoring outside the house and near your property is ok, almost everything goes. Probably booby traps would be a little ostentatious but hidden video cameras outside are wonderful things. Once we begin to install covert cameras and recording systems or bugs inside our homes, then it is time to stop and think – we really should try to question the reasons why?
Obviously there may be circumstances when these moves are indeed appropriate. You could possibly think that somebody who works for your business is stealing from you or doing something untoward. In such cases a secret spy cam could possibly catch him or her red handed. Yet the danger is basically that you may become obsessed with home security and then cross the line into spying. Setting up camcorders and bugs all over your house is no healthy and balanced state of affairs.
The Best Approach to Using Spy Equipment
Probably the most balanced solution could be to introduce monitoring tools or spy gadgets to check into some sort of suspected offense but then remove it once the operation has finished and the dastardly deeds found out! Unwarranted paranoia is in reality quite detrimental to your emotional well being. Which means that to sum up, guns, mines and barbed wire will be fine if you use them outside the house but try to show some consideration for others privacy inside the house. Seems reasonable don’t you think?
