Do you remember a time where kids were free to run the streets of the neighborhood well past dark, unsupervised, free, and safe? Or when it was possible to leave home or go to sleep without locking your doors? Or how about when your private life was just that – private?

It wasn’t that long ago that the world seemed to be a fairly safe place. Families lived in the suburbs so their kids could roam freely and they could sleep with the windows open. Now it seems that no one is truly safe from harm. Accordingly, paranoia has hit an all-time high. One upside to all this madness? Advances in technology are making being safe more of a reality like it once was.

A cool little gadget from somewhere like keeps home security at your fingertips. A keychain remote access allows you to arm or disarm your alarm from any room of the house. If you have internet access, you don’t even have to be anywhere near your house. No more coming in, setting off the alarm and then reenacting a 007 movie just to get it turned off before the police arrive. Don’t act like you haven’t been there, jumping over chairs, under tables, leaping across imaginary sensors that don’t exist, trying to find the quickest route to deactivation.  The only thing missing from that scenario is a video camera and the villains who are trying to attack.

There are also security cameras that come with software that allows you the option to start recording footage only when the motion sensor is tripped. Some even include infrared technology so you can film at night as well as during the day.

Obviously, if you’re trying to protect your home, a standard alarm system is your best bet. But why not feel like James Bond while you’re doing it?
