They’re Watching You. Your Home Security System Isn’t as Secure as You Think

ReadyNutrition Readers, we have covered issues of the surveillance state that exists in several prior articles. It would do you some good to return to these and refresh yourself on what is happening regarding the ongoing surveillance that is carried out against you by your government. In consideration of this serious threat to your liberty and preps, I present this article to give you some food for thought regarding your personal security system for your residence.

A recent article surfaced about 6/26/17 entitled “Next Generation 911 Centers Spy Inside Homes and Businesses,” put out by I need to give you an excerpt from this article, as it is critical to the points I’m going to cover:

“According to an article in the Telegraph, Houston County’s $46.5 million dollar 911 center allows police to spy inside homes and businesses.

“If the alarm goes off at your business, 911 operators will be able to view a live video stream from the security surveillance system and tell law enforcement what’s happening.  And…we’ll be able to have video streaming like if a burglar alarm goes off at a store. We can see inside of the store and see who’s there,” Houston County Sheriff’s Capt. Ricky Harlowe said.”

Well, there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth! FirstNet or Next Generation 911 will go right into your home!

How This Effects Preppers and Preparedness Endeavors

Hey, preppers! That means your ADP/Brinks/Whatever-Security-Company will be able to show law enforcement all your preps! All your happy meals and food, all your supplies, and everything of how your house is laid out! They can see all of it (and you!) at any time, with the click of a button!

This is especially worrisome as it assists them in confiscating your supplies in a national emergency when Executive Order 13603 (which allows the government to confiscate all natural resources and private supplies – including human labor pressed into service) is initiated. All for the “public good,” of course.

Tailor your Security System Free of the “Umbilicus” of a Security Firm

To avoid any extraneous invasive measures of your friendly government, a way to avoid this is to build yourself a security system that is closed. The problem you’ll have is that in order for it to be closed, you will probably have to forgo a response from a security company. Then again, that will involve a guy in “khaki” pants and loafers with a sky-blue button-down Oxford grabbing the telephone and dialing 911. Wow. Some response, right?

Do not tie your cameras into the internet. If the cameras are attached to a DVR (Digital Video Recorder), you can capture the theft or break-in and record it without transmitting a live stream to a police department via your fawning, smiling, “preppy” security firm. If you must have a response? Just get the break-in sensors that alert the security firm minus the cameras.

If they won’t go for it, then forget it. Far better for you to have cameras where the would-be intruders can see them with signs posted to show that your property is monitored. They don’t (and won’t) know the extent or limitations, and you’ll still have it all recorded. Then you don’t have “Big Brother” in your house, snooping over your stuff at any given moment.
The security system should also serve the purpose of allowing you to monitor things yourself when you’re in the home and relaxing or asleep. There are plenty of motion sensors that will alert you to look at the screen that shows what your cameras are recording. Then (depending on your geographic locale, i.e., your friendly state’s laws) you can deal with it in the manner you deem necessary and appropriate.

I also put out some info in articles on how to rig up an early warning system for your property if an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) hits and takes out all of your gadgets. I highly recommend rereading them. One more tip: if you should ever have an intruder prowl your premises, after the encounter, switch the locations of your cameras. Change their position. Never make it “easy” on the bad guys, and close your system off so that it doesn’t stream out to the rest of the world. Remember: the bad guys sometimes wear a badge. Fight that good fight, practice good OPSEC, and drink coffee! JJ out!

    I’ve been installing security systems and surveillance systems for 20 years.

    Many municipalities will not respond unless there is a verified (via video) incident. Many won’t respond unless the keyholder is on premise.

    In order for the man to see into your home YOU have to install cameras in your home and attach them to your security system. Pretty stupid to have anything but nanny cams INSIDE the home.

    As for moving cameras around should you have a prowler. Hahahahaha. The only cameras that you can move around would be wireless, and those cameras suck. Besides, wireless cameras need wires to power them, so it is very difficult to move them around.

    On my small home I have 5 1080P cameras. No-one can approach the house without being seen. They are all hard-wired and don’t ever have to be moved and , unless you are carrying a ladder or are ten feet tall, you can’t do anything to them but maybe shoot them with a paint gun. Of course you’ll be seen doing it.

    Security systems to avoid at all costs are the wireless systems that talk. Those that the control unit contains the brains of the system can be disabled easily.

    True story: A commercial customer wanted one of those talking controls and I attempted to talk him out of it. He called ADT who installed the wireless equipment and the talking control unit.

    Not wanting to lose a customer I arrived just as ADT was explaining the system to the customer (my customer). I explained that the system could be disabled easily and actually got into an argument with the ADT guy.

    I bet him $1000 that I could disable the ADT system within 30 seconds and prove that it was crap. ADT guy took the bet (I never got paid) so I showed my customer that the only thing a bad guy has to do to disable these talking controls is whack it with a hammer (which I proceeded to do) and destroy the control.

    ADT guy was pissed that I destroyed the control unit, but I kept my customer. (FYI only took seven seconds to destroy the control)

    i sold security systems door to door for a while. that was the most soul sucking, fear mongering form of employment ever. we would literally follow the crime stories in the newspaper and sow fear and division among neighbors. If there was a break in or home invasion we would be knocking doors the next day, like did you hear what happened to so and so? You can never trust anyone buy our bullshit before they rape your wife and kids. it was such a depressing, shitty job that left you feeling bad at the end of the day because it was such a scummy industry
