If you have anything valuable in my house, think about investing in a GSM Nightvision Security Camera or two. The GSM Nightvision Security Camera is an awesome piece of home surveillance tech that can capture still images and send them directly to your cellphone.
The GSM Nightvision Security Camera sends messages to your phone using a standard cellphone SIM card (the SIM card must have service). The camera is activated via a motion sensor and can taken images in the dark thanks to its nightvision lens. The camera can be activated via text and can be programmed to send images straight to your phone or email address should your camera capture a burglar or other shady character prowling around. While the GSM Nightvision Security Camera is no substitute for a home full-fledged home security system, it is an effective and affordable stop gap, especially for those living in apartments or renting a room. The camera currently sells for $130 from Chinavasion's online shop.
