British Security Firm Facing Questions Over It's Failure To Protect Amb. Stevens

British Security Firm Facing Questions Over Role In Benghazi Attack -- The Telegraph

That was very rational. When deciding to put up security cameras, determine first the areas you’d like monitored. This gadget could be quite expensive if you’d put up one unit in every corner of the house. The key to such problem is proper angling. Home safety is paramount, that’s why it is really good news that home security cams are more affordable now. Having a secure home wouldn’t then be at all impossible for some people.
