• To make burglars think twice.
• To make us sleep easier at night.
• To stop 'home invasion', walk-in burglaries in the daytime. These are unfortunately on the increase right across Auckland. (Alarms are useless because they're not on when we're at home.)
• To catch door to door scam artists. (They often pretend to be tree-fellers in our neighborhood).
• To help keep an eye on our toddler. Sometimes it's great to glance at a screen and confirm she's where we think she is!
• So we can check in when we're away. (No unauthorised parties at our house!)
• So we can check contractors actually came round when they said they did.
