Getting the Right Security System for My Needs

My brother used to install security systems for a local company where he lived. It was a regional brand rather than a national brand, so not too many people had heard of it before. When I told him that I was interested in getting a home security system, he told me to only look at ADT packages. He had extensive knowledge about small local companies as well as some of the better known security system companies, and he told me that there is not a single company that is better than ADT.

I went to the ADT website to learn more about them, and I was impressed with everything that I saw there. I had no idea that a security system could do so much, but it made me want one even more after seeing all the different features and options.

Just Got to Singapore Last Week

The bosses decided that it was a desperate situation and they sent me here with almost no warning. The day before I got on the plane I was thinking about taking a quick trip to Cabo San Lucas with Emily and her parents to do some fishing. Now I am here and she is pretty mad at me about it. Of course we are always having some sort of drama, so it is not new. For now I am staying at a place called Parc Esta in Singapore, which is a condo that belongs to someone my supervisor went to school with. I think that the two of them have some sort of side deal and I would bet anything that the company is getting handed a padded bill for it. However for me that is not important, the only difference is that there is not room service and no maid service. I can cook and I can pick up after myself, so it is not that I really care.

The big thing I have learned so far is that it is really hard to get around in Singapore. Continue Reading “Just Got to Singapore Last Week”

I Saved Money by Installing My Own Cameras

I knew that I wanted to get a CCTV IP camera but I had no idea where to purchase it. I had called a number I had seen on a TV commercial, but I quickly hung up after hearing the price just for a very basic security system. I know that it costs money, but the price I was given was outrageous, for the lack of a better word. I have helped my brother install various things at his house with wiring, and I figured it could not be that much different to run cables for this type of system.

I decided to go online and see if I could just buy the equipment outright, knowing I could get help from my brother with installing it if need be. Continue Reading “I Saved Money by Installing My Own Cameras”

My Company Was Broken into

When I was called in the middle of the night by the alarm company that monitors my company, I knew it was going to be something bad. It was the first time they had ever called me in the middle of the night. They had told me that the police had already been summoned, so I met them at my company’s site where I learned someone had tried to break in. As soon as I saw the front door, I looked up security door repairs in Brisbane because I knew that I would not be able to leave the door in the shape it was in.

The police had arrived in time to arrest the two men who were trying to break into my business, but they had not arrived in time to stop the damage that was done to the property. Continue Reading “My Company Was Broken into”

We Found a New Place to Stay

This is a really nice place and I certainly could not have afforded to live here if I had not gotten really lucky. In fact I knew that I needed to find a new place to live and I was getting ready to start looking for a new Jackson apartments, but it pretty much found me first. I went to this party and there I ran into this guy that I knew. I was walking in this place and he was walking out, on his way out on a date. We talked for a couple of minutes and he asked me if I knew of anyone that needed two roommates. It was a bit of a surprise to me, but he gave me his number and later on he showed me the place. It was a three bedroom apartment in a luxury apartment complex and the guy that was moving out was still there. Continue Reading “We Found a New Place to Stay”

We Are Thoroughly Enjoying Our New One Bedroom Apartment at Twin Lakes

We were just married and picked a place to live in Wichita that we knew we would enjoy. When we were getting close to being married, we looked at one bedroom apartments in Wichita KS. We needed a place we could afford with our jobs, and we found a place that is just amazing. I have a small sailboat that was given to me by my grandfather. We restored it together. I thought that it might just sit in storage with us in an apartment, but we found Twin Lakes that has a 22-acre lake for residents to enjoy. We go sailing pretty much every day we have off together. We both enjoy it so much. Continue Reading “We Are Thoroughly Enjoying Our New One Bedroom Apartment at Twin Lakes”
