Home Safe Home


PhotoHunt:
PROTECT(ion)


This week's photohunt made me think of just one topic - home security. This is a highly dynamic topic which could mean so many things to different people and amazing how it has evolved these years!

It used to be that guard dogs were enough to provide people home security!




Though I will admit Mozart here (I love this pet and I miss him!) was never tasked to guard us because he is always inside my room! LOL

Then it has moved to some level when people put up secure cameras in their gates!



See the camera? It's on the upper right side of the gate. This is not our home though...for one I will not put up a security camera too obvious to be seen. Yet on another thought the camera could deter crimes...maybe! Anyway took this photo in one of my walks...it so happened I had my camera with me.

I did not take this for photohunt then, but was just amazed on how people would willingly show anyone they have a security camera...but then again this could deter crimes!

Then as I was digging my old photos I found something more serious...



There! You see a security camera with some motion sensor and wires which are electrically charged! I don't really know how it's called I can't remember how IT Guy referred to it but I gathered it can electrocute or give anyone an electric shock. This make me think how people feel unsecured and how we get paranoid when it comes to home safety for our families.

And this is Mariposa's take on this! LOL

I'm a bit more advanced...not sure if tells you how advanced my paranoia is...or if I just jumped into the bandwagon! There are just so many home security gadgets nowadays.



Not really sure how ready household in the Philippines for this level of home security. I don't really care if they break into my house and take everything as long as they do it when there is no one at home!

And last thing, whichever measure we take and however we take them, they say the way to be safe is never to feel secure...

See what "protect(ion)" others have, visit PhotoHunt's HQ!


I wish you all a safe and happy weekend!

Sure nice to have a motion sensor installed where we are :)

Becky said...

I understand having a security camera, but it's sad the one house is in need of barbed wire.


My photo is posted here.

Better safe than sorry. Great take on this week's theme

A thought provoking comment on our daily preoccupations. Well covered.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Yes, the mere fact that we need so much security around is kinds sad.

Have a great weekend!

A motion sensor is really ideal for protecting our houses.

Mine is here.

RJ Flamingo said...

I love that last shot - never would have thought it possible to shoot that in the dark...

Thanks for visiting!

Looks like you have all the protection you need with that awesome guard dog! Great shots.

Brita said...

Great take on the theme!
Thanks for visiting too.

Who knows the camera might just be "toy" and it isn't even working...just a tactic to scare off burglars :P

Life Ramblings said...

nice perspective for the theme.

Annie said...

Great post - excellent photos and some thought provoking ideas about protection and home secutity. It is sad that we have to feel so insecure.

kaye said...

Daisy said...

Wow, that's a lot of security! I wish the world was safe and no one ever had to worry.

Randi said...

Great take on this week´s theme - I´m lucky living in a more safe place. We don´t need things like that...yet.

Alice Audrey said...

He guarded your room, didn't he? At least as well and Tonic ever guarded anything.

Our security system tends to have false alarms in the middle of the night... and it is really scary and loud and ... well, I wish we didn't have to have them. Thanks for stopping by.

My security system is a labrador sleeping in front of the fire. I'm lucky to live in a small town. The barbed wire made me sad.

Irene said...

WOW! That's a lot of protections. Thanks for coming.

bingskee said...

if one has the money, then i say go for high end security measures, but for me, i can have a dog muna for protection. he he

Zog said...

You were saying that you don't want people to see that you have a security camera, and that you like motion lighting. What do you think of the idea of this outdoor motion lighting with built in hidden security camera? I guess Costco had it a while back, but I don't think they had it last time I was there.

There are a ton of things you can do for home security, but not many beat some motion lights and a good dog. Once you feel the need to live in an electric barbed wire fortress, it is time to move or seek help.

jam said...

Quite right, security means protection!

candi said...

Nice take on the theme.
Thanks for stopping by mine.
