Setting Up a Security System
Of course as soon as I built this house it struck me as to how vulnerable it is to burglars. For one thing it is a pretty good ways from any place by road, and I am not so sure that I have a huge amount of faith in the response time of the local sheriff’s department. The house is about a mile down a dead end road and a good hundred yards from the neighbors. Then there is the lake. I went this site (http://home-security.co/adt-home-security/) today and tried to figure out what an ADT monitoring plan would cost me. The big thing I am worried about is pirates actually. This house sitting about fifty feet up a slope from a huge reservoir. I have a deck boat, a boat house with a lot of fishing tackle and two jet skis down on the lake, but lifted up out of the water. I already rigged up a surveillance system, but the motion sensor is too sensitive.
Of course a lot of guys are fishing around the bait light I use for my dock, which is understandable. If I was out fishing I would throw a line under there as well. The motion sensor needs to go off when some thief is on my property, not when they are trying to get a lure untangled from some dock line or some such thing. It can not be going off every time a jet ski goes past the dock either, in fact if it was really too sensitive it might catch people on jet skis rooster tailing water up on the dock. That sort of thing will happen, especially if you got kids showing off for one another. Most of all I want people to know I have an alarm and that it is monitored.
