While I was sleeping one night, some people broke into my home and stole my most valuable items. I have no idea how I was able to sleep through it all, but I did, and when I found out, I was devastated. The only thing they didn’t take that was of any value was my laptop, and that was because I was laying on top of it while I was sleeping. On my laptop, I saw an ad telling me to click on a link to sign up for home security, which I thought was pretty ironic at the time.
After filing a police report, I went back to my laptop and clicked on the ad. It took me to a page for a well known home security provider. I looked at some of the different system options that they offered and chose one that gave me everything. I made an appointment to have a new system installed in my home the next day. I didn’t want to go back to sleep in the same home, knowing that anyone could just walk right in and I wouldn’t have heard it. That night, I tied some Christmas bells to the front door and to my bedroom, just in case anyone tried to enter.
The following day, the technician from the security company arrived at my home and started the installation process. He had to go into my attic to run some wires and installed a few boxes that would act as controls for the system. He also added some cameras on the inside and outside of my homes and showed me how to view all of them. It’s amazing how far technology has come since the old days of having security systems. I can even watch footage of my home on my laptop.
