For home surveillance, try Manything, a subscription app that delivers live footage streams via an Android device or iPhone. Neighborhood Watch programs are another great way for neighbors to collectively keep a watchful eye on each other’s property. Then there’s XANDEM, which is an invisible array of motion-detecting sensors. A more traditional method of property and personal protection is a well-trained Doberman paired with a few Beware of Dog signs.
