Share

But for reasons of cost-home security cameras can be expensive, instead many homeowners opt for fake security cameras instead.

Fake security cameras offer some of the same physical characteristics of real security cameras including real housing; 24/7 blinking, flashing red LED lights; motion activated movement and realistic looking wiring. As a matter of fact, they are so realistic looking that no one can tell the difference unless they are a trained professional or an untrained burglar from two or 3 feet away.

For those reasons these fake security cameras offer effective yet cheaper home security and an inexpensive way to prevent home burglary.

In today’s blog post we’re doing a product review of the Mace brand Home Security System

The wireless window door sensor has a transmission range of up to 300 feet. When the motion detector or the door window sensor is triggered it sounds a 105 db alarm and sends a signal to the control unit which dials the first telephone number that you have in your programmed list. As many as five numbers can be on your list. The person answering the call will hear a prerecorded alert message and then can listen in on the room, broadcast their own message or disarm the system. If no one answers and the first phone call the next number is automatically dialed. There is a remote control that is included with the system that can arm and disarm the system. As many as 14 additional sensors can be added to cover a larger area.

This unit is an effective home security alarm featuring a auto dialer.

Share

A local animal control officer set up his own steam using a pinhole spy camera that he had hidden in his office to catch a thief with sticky fingers red handed.

Get the rest of the story HERE.

Apparently there have been several thefts before, so the officer decided to try and catch the man on his own. When he saw who the culprit was he got a couple other officers and they went to the house to arrest the culprit.

“It catches them on video perfectly. So perfect evidence. When I came in and saw who it was, I grabbed another officers. We went right to his house and arrested him at his house on the spot.”

This wasn’t a hidden camera in the true meaning of the words but it did the job.

“Knock-Knock” Burglars Wanted By Cops

Share

The Colorado Springs Police Department is seeking the public’s help in apprehending two 20-year-old Hispanic males who are considered armed and dangerous because they stole weapons in a series of daytime residential burglaries-so-called “knock-knock” burglaries. It was unclear how the suspects were identified, but probably by security surveillance footage.

Read the whole story HERE

What Are Knock-Knock Burglaries?

They are the latest craze for burglars to get into a house and steal merchandise. Here’s how they work. Usually one, but sometimes two people ring the doorbell or knock at the front door repeatedly. When there is no answer they go around to the rear and break-in or walk-in if the door is unlocked. That is their way of ensuring that no one is at home. Of course, since most burglaries are done during the day, usually no one’s own home anyhow.

Even if you’re not at home, the Barking Dog Alarm
is an effective deterrent to burglary. It can “see” through doors and windows to protect an area up to 15 feet away. When that protected area is violated by an intruder, the sound of an angry barking dog starts.

Police will tell you that a barking dog is perhaps the best and most effective obstacle you can place in front of a burglar to prevent burglary.

Diversion Safes-Product Review

Share

In today’s blog post we’re doing product reviews of diversion safes. What are diversion safes?

The best way to describe them is as innocent looking, common household products such as food containers, cleaning products or soda cans with hollowed out interiors that are big enough to hold items such as cash and credit cards, jewelry, small collectibles and in some cases handguns.

Some good examples are this Maxwell House Coffee Diversion Safe that has an interior department of 3″ x 3.5″. The container is weighted to give it the feel of the real thing and of course it has the exterior look of the famous tin of Maxwell House coffee. Burglars spend on average 10 minutes inside a home on their burglarizing so you have no chance to look everywhere which is what the appeal is for diversion safes – “hiding things in plain sight.”

Another example is this Outdoor Diversion Safe that can be used to hide keys. No more getting locked out of the house.

Check out all of our other fabulous Diversion Safes to help protect your valuables.

Favorite Targets Of Home Burglars

Share

Reedley, California is located approximately 22 miles south of Fresno and is just slightly above middle-class America with a relatively young population which means they are working people. That area has received a rash of home burglaries in the last couple of weeks.

Read the whole story HERE.

In only one instance did burglars need to use force to break-in. The other burglaries were through unlocked doors or windows. All burglaries happen during the daytime when no one was at home except in one instance when a 50-year-old woman was inside the house-she managed to scare them away.

In every case cash and jewelry was taken and in some instances firearms were stolen. In one case a TV was taken.

The reason we are highlighting these cases is because they are excellent examples of what not to do. Obviously number one is to lock all your doors and windows even when you’re not home. A home burglary occurs every 13 seconds in the United States. A scary statistic is that less than 13% of all burglaries ever get cleared by the Police Department. So it’s a high reward and low risk enterprise.

And don’t think for one minute that burglars don’t “case” their targets. They do their homework and look for homes that appear to be affluent with no visible sign of a security system or other deterrents to do in their burglary.

Burglars are looking for cash and credit cards, jewelry, firearms and other small valuable items that can be easily pawned for quick cash. They spend on average 10 minutes inside a home. They cannot look everywhere. Which is why we suggest using Diversion Safes as a way to hide your valuables.

Diversion safes are common household products with hollowed out interiors that are big enough to hide cash, credit cards, jewelry and in some cases small handguns.

New Purse Snatching Technique

Share
more info here

ABC did a story recently about the latest technique that criminals used to steal purses from women. The people who do it are called “sliders.” These criminals pull in next to a parked car that is driven by a woman at a gas station. They know that most women leave their purses or handbags on the front seat when they get out to fill up their gas tank. They also know that most women do not block their car doors while they’re gassing up.

The criminal “slides” out of his car and crab walks to the victim’s car opening the passenger side door, steals the purse and gets back into his car driving away without the woman knowing what happened.

For a better explanation watch the ABC VIDEO HERE.

Tips To Protect Against Sliders

If you want to protect yourself against this kind of crime don’t leave valuables inside your car even if you’re only a few feet away. Lock your car door whenever you are out of the car. And have a self-defense product handy so you can use it to fend off would be robbers.

This Pepper Shot Pepper Spray has an attachment that attaches to your car visor and contains 10 half-second bursts up to 8 feet.

Mail Theft Tips

Share

The National Sheriffs Association which is the group behind the neighborhood watch program puts out a variety of personal safety tips as well as home security tips including these mail theft tips.

One of the most popular ways for thieves to steal your identity is through your mailbox.

1. Don’t leave outgoing mail in an unlocked mailbox.

2. Take your mail to a blue collection box or your local post office and don’t leave your mail in a collection box that is full.

3. Pick up your mail right away after it’s delivered.

4. Get a locked mailbox or convert your unlocked box to the lockable type and make sure that the mail slot is big enough for the letter carrier to insert your mail. Your letter carrier cannot pick up mail from this type of box.

5. Have regular income checks deposited electronically into your bank account via direct deposit.

6. If you are expecting credit cards, checks or other valuable mail and don’t get it, promptly contact the senders.

7. If you see suspicious activity on your street promptly call 911 and report it to police.

8. You might want to “opt out” of receiving pre-approved credit and insurance offers from the credit bureau mailing lists by calling 1-888-5OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) or by visiting online at www.optoutprescreen.com.

In a story out of San Francisco “Police are reporting a big surge in so-called “door knock burglaries” all over the Bay Area. That’s when thieves knock on your door and if you don’t answer, they break in. But now, more and more homeowners are catching these guys on camera to help police. 7 On Your Side found out more about how a surveillance system can help keep your family safe.

Some of the crimes captured on camera are stunning. In one, a team of burglars was caught on camera in San Jose. A woman clutching a baby was seen on camera knocking on the front door. No one answered, so her partners broke into the back of the home.

Another video showed burglars in San Leandro who never knew a camera was watching as they cased a house, then quietly pulled up a car, and wrenched open the back window.

In another case, two men kicked their way into an El Cerrito home only to realize a camera had captured their crime. One tried to knock it out, but it was too late.”

“A suspicious Sanford homeowner installed video cameras and caught her handyman stealing $70,000 in jewelry, cash and other personal belongings, police said.

Mary Pflueger told Sanford police that on Oct. 11 or 12, approximately $400-$500 in cash and a digital camera went missing from her home.

Pflueger installed two hidden cameras inside her home on Oct. 27 because she suspected her 53-year-old handyman Philip Liles had been stealing her things — including a Tiffany & Co necklace valued at $6,100, according to a report.

Video footage later showed Liles taking items from the safe inside her home. The police report included a list of more than 30 stolen items, including $500 in cash, necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets.

Sanford police monitored the camera outside of 59-year-old Pflueger’s home Friday, when Liles returned to do yard work. The camera recorded him opening a safe and removing two $50 bills.

“This time, the Sanford Police” were waiting for him, a news release said, and Liles was arrested at the scene.

He is charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, dealing in stolen property, false ownership to secondhand dealer, grand theft and petty theft.

Police recovered some of Pflueger’s stolen items at a local pawn shop.

‘Knock-knock’ Burglaries Rising

Share

“Knock-knock” burglaries, where criminals target homes they think are empty, are on the rise. Security cameras have helped investigators catch some of these intruders.

In one case in which a team of burglars were caught on camera, a woman holding a baby is seen knocking on the front door. No one answers. Her partners then break into the home through the back.

In another case, two men were seen on camera kicking their way into a home. They then suddenly realize a camera just captured their crime. One of the men tried to knock it out, but it was too late.

“It’s a pretty simple way to commit a burglary,” said LAPD Commander Andy Smith.

Read the whole story HERE

The LAPD has arrested dozens of people suspected of committing so-called “knock knock” robberies in the San Fernando Valley and West Los Angeles. The thieves are in and out in seconds.

Calvin LaPorte Anderson has installed cameras at dozens of homes just this year as more and more homeowners use surveillance to catch thieves and vandals. Forget the grainy pictures of the past. Today’s high definition cameras clearly show faces.

And many of these cameras will send you live video of the break-ins — as they are happening — to your phone, tablet or computer.
“I saw the young lady came into my driveway,” he said.

While Hasan was at work, his camera detected motion and sent an alert to his smartphone. Someone just entered his property. He downloaded the video and saw the postman deliver a package to the front porch.

Of course, any surveillance camera will help scare off intruders.

“When somebody sees a camera, they’re more likely to turn around,” said Anderson.

More than likely you cannot get your own police department to cut down on home burglaries in your area but you can get some Home Burglar Alarms that act as an effective deterrent if somebody should break you to your home.

Another idea is to install some Fake Security Cameras at your house. Nothing says stay away from my property better than a security camera and no one can tell a fake one from the real thing.

A burglary victim provided crucial evidence to Oklahoma City Police thanks to his home surveillance camera.

This is the latest example of how personal security systems have helped metro police in their investigations, even though Blayne Jewell originally bought his camera for wildlife.

The only things the camera has caught are burglars.

“I knew my camera was on and I checked it and there were two kids right there walking down my driveway,” said Jewell.
Last month, Jewell came home and found his door kicked in.

“The door knob was busted off. The door is creased right there where they had kicked it, broke the door knob, broke the door jam,” Jewell explained.

His camera has a motion detector, so Jewell knew exactly four minutes passed from the time the guys stepped onto his property to the time they left.

The police report said one suspect appears to be holding a gun that’s tucked into his pants. Luckily, the suspects did not steal anything.

He handed the photos over to Oklahoma City Police, who said Friday that residential cameras have helped out in several cases.

“It’s always helpful when people do have surveillance cameras, especially when they’re of good quality, and we’re able to release them to the public, oftentimes leading us to arresting a suspect,” OCPD Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.
