MARCH 2010 - Intruder Detection – Keeping an eye on your property - Steve Mooney
The first video home security system was patented (patent #3,482,037) on December 2, 1969 to inventor Marie Brown. This basic system was designed to use television surveillance. Basic intruder alarms were available, to those who could afford them. Technology has come a long way since then and sophisticated technology solutions are becoming accessible to the every day consumer. Intruder alarms have progressed beyond a lone siren ringing unnoticed, dependant on wiring and phone lines, they are now being designed to suit the needs and demands of a busy, technologically literate consumer.
