Is summer over yet? Part 2..."Surveillance"
I didn't write Part 2 yesterday because I decided to leave the chaos surrounding SD16 lie for a minute and try to have a great day. I scooped up puppy and took him on work errands away from home. I'm glad I did!
I did leave the motion detection camera rolling in my home office, though, and was alerted 4 times to SS15 and SS10 walking in there all creepy like and aimlessly looking around. Weird. They know I keep a camera in there while I'm gone, so I had no problem asking, "Why are you two being creepers? You know you are not allowed in my office while I am gone." I got some weird answers about looking for an extension cord and checking to see what car I took (the garage is on the other side of office). BS. What the hell does it matter what car I took? I also left my bedroom door ever-so-slightly ajar and when I returned it was closed tight. I asked if they had been in my bedroom and after a long pause they said they had not. Ugh. I chose to leave that alone for now and said, "Well, please stop going into my office. Its creepy and I should be able to trust you to stay out of my personal areas while I am away. If there is something you need that you think I may have in my office, please text or call me to ask permission."
As one of you recommended on my previous blog, I am working on adding a sliding lockable barn-style door to my office. Also talked with MR. ED about completely changing my office to another room eventually. I just find it ridiculous that SKIDS won't stay out of my stuff even knowing I have cameras and knowing all the crap I've gone through with SD16 and SD20 rifling through my things and stealing my stuff. Its almost like they are trying to piss me off.
If you haven't acquainted yourself with the Alfred App, I highly recommend it! It's free and you can use an iPad or smartphone as a monitor to send alerts to watch recorded or live feeds with sound on your mobile. You can even talk back. Priceless!
We are considering other security camera systems for inside and outside the home. Any suggestions, recommendations, reviews or stories to share?
