Security

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

i'm curious... what part of town do you live in that you're this afraid of skilled thieves?
for example, turning the power off. most of them probably don't even think of that. and while it's not impossible to get past some locks, it's not a quiet process either. probably louder than your alarms.

By Sovanna. I'm reasonably confident that someone with access to the building has been skimming my wallet in the small hours of the night. Not afraid, just not yet armed.

Do you have a missus? ;-)

And if you're in an apt building, do they have cameras?

I do, and we share our accounts, even in Cambodia. Still need to talk to the landlord about the cameras, now he's returned from the provinces.

Bypassing locks is both quiet and possible 'Locks - are only to keep out the lost and curious'

A friend of mine had fishing line attached to the top of the door, with a small bell in the bedroom.

Heard the bell, crept downstairs with a shotgun, and caught two thieves.

Locks picked, power cut, but low-tech possibly saved his life.

What about Web-Cams with Motion Sensing software. Or turn a cell phone into an IP-Cam.
