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.

Security

Postby StroppyChops » Sun May 11, 2014 1:38 pm

I'm looking for some portable door/window security sensors, or possibly some portable motion detection alarms - any suggestions? Battery operated as turning the mains off before a spot of B&E is too obvious, and portable as I'm not paying to install permanent devices for the landlord.

Why not? They'd love it!

Damn, that's a tough one. I feel like it's one of those items you'd need to get outside Cambodia.

A small land mine would probably work fine.

There is that place called something like Home Top on MTT Blvd near the Russian Market that I want to check out and take a thousand pictures of.

This is the Help Wanted section, as in jobs offered and sought. Why not hire a local to be a security guard, or even better - employ a down at heel English teacher. They are always looking for extra hours.

As Murray is fond of saying, if the little bastard wasn't guarding the place, he would be robbing it.

Out by the airport, at hanoi and russian blvd there's a shopping mall (follow the lucky burger sign). next to the moto park, across the street, is a really nice security supply company. they have, or can order, what you need.

Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for that next time I'm out that way. For the moment balancing the empty beer can on the door knob is sufficing. Will also chase these devices on eBay. I'm surprised they're not much more popular here, along with portable motion detectors.

I'm still working on my immunity to the panel beaters over the road that start beating panels at 6am
