Tech That Can't Go On Vacation

Tech That Can't Go On Vacation

We're planning a two week vacation this summer, and planning an even longer vacation for next summer. We don't live in the nicest of neighborhoods, but, we don't wake up in night-sweats worrying about our house and belongings while we're gone.

We don't have a desktop computer, but we do have a large flat panel tv in the living room and other tech that just simply can't go on the family vacation. So, we were thinking about what we could do to take extra precautions so that these items won't go missing from our lives.

Do we get a security system or have a friend frequently visit the house while we're gone (we kind of already have to do this because we have two monsters cats). We're weighing our options and decided to read up on some home security:

&bull Do it Yourself Home Security
&bull SimpliSafe Home Security System
&bull Archerfish: Intelligent Web-Based Home Security
&bull Roundup: Affordable Home Security Solutions
&bull Blogging the NY Times: A DIY Home Security System Install

How do you protect the tech that can't go on vacation?
