Home security in the Movies.


Home security is very important, even in the fictional world of Hollywood films. Here is a look at some of the most notable security from the big screen featuring everything from CCTV to snake pits.

Home Alone

My favourite, ans the one film that demonstrates exactly why you need CCTV. In this movie,  armed with a BB gun and a tarantula later on, Kevin McCallister has to protect himself and his house from burglars Harry & Marv with  booby traps .  Kevin’s genius and the burglars idiocy are a good combo  on screen but in real life this would probably end differently. But if Kevin had CCTV this story would not even happen. It wouldn’t be much of a story would it? Burglars see lovely house, approach it, see it has cctv and walk  away.

Panic Room

This is more of a high net worth scenario, but Panic room is the perfect demonstration as to how home security via CCTV and a panic room can save your home, possessions and even your life . A mother and daughter have to stay safe from three burglars that break in to their home.

Raiders of the Lost Ark

A classic.  My favourite opening sequence ever. Raiders of The Lost Ark displays some of the greatest “home” security from the ancient Mayans. Although a little over the top, the ancient Mayans knew how to keep their temple and golden idols secure, well kind of. Trap doors, light sensor activated spikes, flying arrows, snake pits, and giant boulders   was their security set up, which would probably have worked against anyone else but Indiana Jones. Maybe the Mayans should of invested in some CCTV and access control?

Have a good weekend,


Are you ready to feel secure?
