A Watchful Eye on the School
Need help keeping an eye on things at school at night or over the weekend or holidays? Who doesn’t, but few districts can afford full-time security guards or burglar alarms. That’s where Logitech’s Alert 750i Master System comes in. It includes a small, easy-to-hide high definition video camera that sends its data over the school’s electrical wiring to a computer running included software. The camera can see in the dark and start recording whenever it senses motion, but the gem is the software, which can monitor several cameras at once and send text messages at the first hint of trouble. The kit costs $300 and there are extra cameras available for indoor or outdoor use.
