low cost security system
Does anyone else use a baby monitor as a low cost garage security system? Before i got the intercoms between the garage and the kitchen, i used to use a baby monitor as a means of hearing what was going on in the garage in the middle of the night. These can be had at garage sales for a couple of bucks, they pick up the slightest sounds (had a rake fall over one night and it sounded like a bulldozer was in there). I put a piece of black electrical tape over the little red light, so the boogie man doesn't know he's being listened in on and gives me time to load the .357. Haven't had a break in yet, but i sleep a little easier knowing if someone does try it, i'll be there.
