VISEC Surveillance Software - Self Defense Article
Jay loved his new house. He rolled over the money he invested from his year-end bonus into a down payment, now that he could afford to pay the monthly mortgage.
Many of the neighbors on his quiet, tree-lined street had lived there for generations. He loved the idea of starting a family in that house, even though he knew he'd have to jump a few more pay grades at work before that could happen.
When he returned from work one night, he noticed a few things out of place. A few of his picture frames had been knocked over. A soda can left on the coffee table from last night's television watching rolled on its side.
After a quick inspection, Jimmy felt secure that nothing valuable was missing. None of the doors had been unlocked, and none of the windows broken. So he went to work the next morning curious, but
He grew alarmed when he returned the next day, and saw some trash strewn around the living room. Now, things were looking pretty strange. He worried that he might have to use the money he was
saving for vacation to buy an expensive security system.
After Brenda, the head of the neighborhood watch, assured Jay that their neighborhood was safe from both pranksters and career criminals, she asked if he had a computer with a webcam. A little puzzled, he told her that he had one, though he didn't seem to use it that often.
"That's just fine," said Brenda. "A few months before you moved in, I got a little spooked by something I saw on the news. Some days I can't get home from work before the bus drops my kids off from sports practice. So I found some software that lets me keep an eye on them. I think it might work for your situation, too."
A few days later, Jay installed his own copy of the VISEC Surveillance Software. Although there hadn't been any more strange occurrences in the last few days, he still didn't want to take a chance.
The following week, Brenda's advice paid off. Jay's cell phone buzzed with a text message from his VISEC system. Jay had programmed it to alert him to any activity in the house.
With a lump in his throat, Jay swung around to his office workstation, and clicked on the special link that allowed him to watch what was happening at his house.
To his surprise, he saw a little gray kitten bouncing around on his couch. He actually started to crack up as he watched the tiny cat attack a throw cushion.
Later that night, Jay pulled the recordings that VISEC had automatically made when it sensed motion in the house. He saw the cat peek out from a loose ventilation grate in the corner of the living room. It looks like Jay had a stowaway!
After luring the cat back out from hiding with a little lunchmeat Jay fixed the grate and made an appointment with the neighborhood vet. He and his new companion slept soundly, under a protective
set of eyes and ears.
