Marmitek has introduced IP Cameras that automatically upload video evidence to YouTube, which means that YouTube will now become not only a location for watching or sharing images, but also for saving private videos.
Using a Marmitek IP Camera* you can monitor everything from a distance, making it the perfect solution for checking that everything is in order at home in real time 24/7: You will have more peace of mind if you can check from anywhere, whether the children at home are all right, check who is at your front door or just ensure that all is well back at home. A Marmitek IP Camera can also supply images that enable you to confirm exactly what happened and who or what caused the incident. These images are automatically sent to your e-mail address or uploaded to a NAS (Network-attached storage) server. Storage space from an e-mail account, however, is often limited. And uploading to an NAS server means that you cannot usually access and view saved images. However Marmitek has just launched two new IP Cameras. The IP Eye Anywhere241 and the IP RoboCam541. These cameras can automatically and independently (without the intervention of a computer), instantly upload your security images to YouTube. You can permit these to be viewed by anyone, or protect them, so that only you have access. As a result, you have a free, online alternative to an NAS server. So whether it’s your car on the drive, the motorbike in the garage, the valauble equipment in your lounge, or the nursery where your baby is sleeping â€“ YouTube is watching!

The security experts at Yale have thoughtfully offered the guidance below, on how best to secure your valuable garden contents, as thefts from grounds are becoming much more common:
Many of us donâ€™t realise the high value of the items we leave in our garden, and the fact that theyâ€™re mainly left unsecured means theyâ€™re easy targets to thieves. To make it worse, home insurance policies often donâ€™t cover thefts from gardens and outbuildings.
With expensive barbecues, garden furniture and kidsâ€™ toys often left unsecured in our gardens overnight, it makes sense to invest in affordable and easy to use security solutions that will keep them secure.

Police Chiefs are making every effort to refrain from having officers attend call outs that are considered to be less urgent cases, such as telephone harassment calls.
Those who receive such calls on a regular basis, could argue that they are as urgent as any other. However, there are now advances in technology, which can put a stop to nuisance calls of every nature, without the need for police intervention.
Better procurement is highlighted as a key way to save police funding; using new inventions that save precious police time is vital in surviving the impending cuts.
