We all expect to be safe in our own homes don’t we?  But what happens when someone threatens that safety and it could have been easily prevent.  I wanted to share a post about home safety.  Why?  Because recently it has been a topic for discussion between myself, my neighbours as well as within our household.

Within the last month and a half we have had two break ins on our street alone and I heard there have been others on roads nearby.

I’m going to be straight up, I am a teensy bit scared, more so because I have young children and frankly you never know whose outside if like me you have a great big wooden door with no windows to see out of.   The worst part is that the second break in was whilst there was someone in their own home.  Apparently someone knocked on their door, they of course went to open the door and 4 large men pushed their way in.  Fortunately they just stole from the poor woman but as we all know it could have been a far worse situation.

Since then I have been more than a little nervous about opening the door and if my husband is around I get him to do it.

What we clearly need is some form of security camera system to enable us to see who is outside and then decide whether we want to open the door to them.  It’s also handy for avoiding door to door sales people and Jehovah ’s Witness’s who like to come calling just when I am in the middle of something.

My parents have recently installed a system which is brilliant so no matter where they are they can see both outside and inside of the house either on their phone or tablet.  By coincidence I had an email land in my inbox from Panasonic about a Panasonic Outdoor Camera, seriously how on earth did they know!  With the concern as to our home security firmly in my mind I did not hesitate to take a look at their site.  Amazingly there on the screen was the exact item that would help disperse my fears, an outdoor security system.  Like the device my parents have it streams live footage to both smartphones and tablets.  There are built-in visual and infra-red sensors, a microphone so you can communicate with those outside your front door which is great if you are out shopping when the delivery man arrives as you can ask them to drop off your parcel to the neighbour.  Pictures can also be recorded to the SD card in the system’s hub and there are various SD cards with different amounts of memory to choose from.

It’s great for safety and I must admit if you also get the indoor camera it is also quite useful for those with young children as you can pop babies, toddlers to bed and go and do the washing, cleaning, cooking, have a cup of tea but be able to see them easily via your device of choice.  The cherry on the top ……. there are no monthly fees!

Take a look at this great video which really sums up everything you need to know plus the house in the video looks fantastic so it’s worth having a look at that too.

It sounds great doesn’t it and has to be something I will strongly consider using at home to keep my family safe especially with Christmas coming up and the increase in break ins that generally happen around that time.

Would you consider having a home a Panasonic security system in our home?

  1. We have cameras around our home and they do make me feel a lot more secure HOWEVER we have had several incidents and the footage has been next to useless so they haven’t been that useful but if they make me feel better then they’re worth it xxx

  2. I am so unsure about cameras on my home, at work we have video entry which I do really like and it is handy as I can speak to anyone waiting to come in and wait for ID to be shown x

  3. I have seen a few of these on adverts and I was thinking to buy it too! But the Panasonic one sounds much reliable since the brand has been there since forever! Will definitely look at the website!

  4. It sounds brilliant. We got burgled when I was 8 and to be honest I’ve never really got over it! I don’t think people realise just how traumatic it is, but especially to children x

  5. I think people need to be a bit more safety savvy when answering the door (me included) we are rather trusting at times and this can just be what the con men want. But I think if I lived in a built up area (city) we would have a lot more security around the house.
