Phoenix Arizona ? it will be 117-118 this weekend... this is why you don't buy black color car around here

if people took physics in school then they will understand why..



i live close to Ahwatukee arizona.

That's the reason why i bought a pearl white Mazda. The inside is a lot cooler for sure-- i didn't need to turn the AC to max while wearing this at 4PM (heading to the oral board i mentioned in another thread).




@animeaddictann69 you saw the more recent weather forecast ? 120 !!! breaking the record already!! and it's not even July or August yet!!

time to check those ACs and put in new filters!!

lowest is 90, which means that at 7-8PM it will still be 95-100 degree. i think it's best to stay in door during those days.. It's hard to run when it's that hot.

people going around talking about the airport will shut down or the roads will melt. etc...

I'm curious if security cameras installed outside of the house will work at 120 degree heat. I'll have to ask my neighbors about it. It's record breaking for June, yes, but 122 was the highest (in the 90's)

Home security: message board with chalk, pencil where persons of interest can leave #s to be reached / accessed for donations to mail in. Trying to let original paint on house last another 50 years rain or shine. May start to use solar once electric utilities are shut off.....thankful the days are long this time of year.

Pair of pythons patrol basement; rabid raccoons patrol attic; barking dog patrols 1st level; alcoholic cousins patrol corners asking for handouts be it relevant coinage or food stamps. Rabid squirrels patrol lone tree on property that hasn't died from rot yet. Lawn gets cut only when neighbor's goats can jump fence to graze.

Glad we live out in the county. City nearby has rules.

All those cameras for nothing!! If you can't link them to your phone to notify you of the robbery they are pretty much useless. This robber was going in and out of for hours!


The issue is that a lot of people who set up home automation haven't any idea as to how to manage said automation. Many friends who have far more expensive home automation systems than I do haven't a clue as to how it all works and assumed (incorrectly) that someone else monitors it (which, my security company does but any sensors that are triggered are sent to my mobile phone and the security panel in the bedroom).

As with 99% of things in the world when it comes to tech: it all sounds good but only about 10% of the population has any clue how to use it.


They caught the guy. it's pretty obvious since this is one of the stupid criminals.

These two scenarios are actually kind of interesting. The first thief couldn't have known about how technology works, especially how accessible such things are. The second, on the other hand, noticed immediately that there was a camera up and decided to mask up.

I make it a point to hide the cameras enough that someone peeking into the door won't notice that they're there. I have one in a "mock" speaker that just has a large enough hole for the camera and its sensors to be exposed. As for the dogs, many people have dogs for their love of animals - not for protection (I'm one of them - I know the dog we have wouldn't do more than just bark a few times at someone who's walking around in the house that's unknown to him). lol.

I don't think the first criminal saw the cameras

Don't you think it's a privacy issue if you have hidden cameras inside the house?

My dog is 15-16 year old by now. She's only 10-12 lb. She's a barker if i don't pick her up she will continue to bark until the guests left the house..

Not really. I have the security company's cameras in areas that don't really get much traffic from visitors, myself, or gf. I have my own cameras in certain places that I don't feel too terrible having there since I'm the one with access (and it doesn't invade visitors' privacy since I don't have any in the guest rooms - just one or two outside of the guest rooms). I do give a heads-up to those staying for the first time ("don't walk around naked at night because there are security cameras.."). Conversations and the likes are fine. My office is monitored by myself instead of the security company (it's soundproof, either way).

The dog we have is about 5-6 years old. He'll bark. That's the most you're going to get out of him. His bites aren't scary, he's 13lbs (at last check-in at the vet's), and he's really not going to ward off anyone.

I'm sure you can walk around naked in your own house--even with cameras. It's your house you can do what you want as long you don't walk around naked in public.

Which camera system do you use ? Swann? Samsung? Qsee?

My dog will bark but will not bite. She doesn't have any teeth left either

If you don't want to be on video now a day, it's better to go out in a disguise or something. if you have security cameras installed, consider registering them with similar program in your city

I would not register my cameras though. I don't like the idea of big brother watching me...

you saw this ?

You can hide in the bathroom all you want.. It's a good thing this home invader left after taking the laptop and tablet. What do you think this home owner will do after this home invasion ?

There's a lot that goes into security. Especially if you need remote viewing access. VPNs and a tightly locked down firewall on your camera Network is the best way to go about it. There problem is ease of use and security don't usually go hand in hand.
