I installed a home security cam system. It took six hours to finish the drilling, mounting and connection for three cameras and another two hours to install the fourth one the next day.

The two reasons behind it are that home break-ins have been on the rise in my area recently and the fact that my house is part of the “Kodomo 110” system in which children who are being followed or have trouble are free to seek refuge in. Even if I’m not home, once the child sets foot on my property, I’ll have video footage to turn over to the police, not to mention that a child molester will probably stop once he or she is aware that they’re being recorded.

I got the camera system from amazon and it cost 40,000 yen ($358.00 U.S.), which is rather inexpensive for a security system. I hooked it up to a computer monitor and my router and it displayed as promised. I’m looking at the footage as I type this and the infrared is excellent. The daytime color images are also crisp and clear.

I linked the system to my smartphone, so I can check on my house from remote locations.

Security has come a long way in recent years!

防犯カメラ

昨日、防犯カメラを家に付けた。3台のカメラの穴あけ、固定、調整などに6時間掛かった。最後の1台は翌日に2時間で設置できた。

設置した理由は二つ。一つ目は最近、私の界隈の空き巣侵入が増えたこと。二つ目は私の家はこども110番に登録しているからだ。これで留守であっても、子供が敷地内に入れば録画される。追いかけて来る者も録画されるので諦めるだろう。

様々なシステムをネットで調べた結果、アマゾン提供の『200万画像フルHD1080Pワイヤレス監視カメラセットSMONET監視ワイヤレス野外/屋内wifiカメラ』の4万円製品にした。比較的に安かった。パソコンモニタとルーターに接続すると宣伝通り写った。これをタイプしながらモニタを見ている。赤外線画像も綺麗に写っている。昼間のカラー画像も鮮明だ。

遠隔で家の状態を見るためにスマホにリンクした。近年の防犯が随分進んだ!
