Security Cam Remote Access (防犯カメラリモート監視)
By Billy Hammond (Copyright AELS) I installed 4 security cameras a little over a month ago and wrote them up in my blog. I also installed the Smonet application that works with them on my android smartphone. It’s proved to be quite convenient when I want to check on what’s going on when I’m away from home.

Security Cameras (防犯カメラ)
By Billy Hammond (Copyright AELS) 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 […]
Preventing Nuisance and Scam Calls (迷惑電話・セールス電話・振込詐欺電話対策)
By Billy Hammond (Copyright AELS) We have a major problem with telemarketers and scam artists in Japan. In all cases, the calls are bothersome and time-consuming. I finally got fed up with answering those calls and decided to try a recording device that tells the caller that their phone call would be recorded and does the same thereafter if the caller doesn’t hang up. I chose a device called LETS which is about the size of an e-book reader and installed it between the incoming phone line and my phone/fax machine. It cost about $105.00 US and was really simple to hook up. And guess what? I haven’t gotten a single bothersome call in the more than two weeks since I set it up! I guess those people don’t want to have their voices recorded… 迷惑電話・セールス電話・振込詐欺電話対策 今年、『いらん、つまらない』電話が一気に増えた。「宝石、着物はありませんか？」、「NTT社の～社です…」、「電気代の調査…」等々！！迷惑の上、対応に時間が掛かるので頭にきていた。 […]
