High Security Deadbolts

No.64786937 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
A burglar can drill through your cheap ass deadbolt in a couple of minutes. All of your belongings are free for the taking by anyone with a drill.

You have 10 seconds to explain why you haven't bought a high security deadbolt yet.

does openmailbox have your accounts hostage?

What are the current best practices when it comes to home security and home surveillance?

I already have the weapons necessary for any conceivable home invasion scenario (10" AR pistol) but I don't have a way to catch burglars in the act.

So it seems like it might be a good investment to pay Amazon/Nest/Ring for their smart cameras and their online services where it alerts your phone when an intruder is caught on the camera rather than a traditional system with no "smart" features and local recording. What are your thoughts?

Japanese appliances

Technology popular in japan, but oddly not as common elsewhere.

Pic related is a SHARP Plasmacluster-Air-Purifier

This particular model is not exceedingly popular, but air purifiers in general seem to be more commonplace in japanese homes than others.
