Why have a security camera?

When things go bump in the night, I'm sure you'd want to know whether it's the dog or a ghost. If you are brave enough to check what it is, but maybe not enough to open the door to take a peak yourself, you could always try to set up a security camera so you could check right on your phone. Security cameras are becoming increasingly popular in homes to keep families safe. Having one could offer enough assurance to help you sleep at night. You could be aware of who approaches your home and know whether that banging is a burglar or just a bird.

Where to set up your security camera?


Knowing the best location to place a security camera to keep track of your home can be a struggle. Any ground level entry points, such as the front door, back door, windows and garage, are sort of basic areas to install the cameras. But you may also want to consider installing cameras in the basement or on the second level of your home as well, such as on pathways that lead to bedrooms. It's unlikely that you will get a camera that will point at every entry point of the home, but if your goal is to catch the face of the intruder, then install it on a pathway within your home an intruder is most likely to pass. This allows you to keep track of everything that is going on within your home.

What kind of camera to get? Indoor vs. Outdoor?

Deciding whether to get an indoor or outdoor camera is more based on preference. The biggest distinction between the two is that the outdoor camera can also be used indoors, whereas the indoor camera should NOT be installed outside.

Indoor

Indoor cameras can be great for keeping track of all the activity within the walls of your home. You could check up on kids to see if they're doing their homework, make sure the dog doesn't jump on the furniture, or see if the nanny remembered to pick up the kids on time. These cameras are also great for seeing if there are any intruders who stop by without an invitation and make themselves at home.

Outdoor

Some people prefer not to go for an indoor camera because they can feel exposed within their own homes. In that case, an outdoor camera may be more to their preference. Outdoor cameras are great for monitoring any activity on your property. These cameras are designed with a strong body to withstand different elements and weather conditions

What can a security camera do?


Security cameras have a lot of other uses besides monitoring the perimeter of your house. You could set up a camera to watch plants grow or the pattern of animals on your property. You could set up a camera near a bird's nest and watch little birds hatch from their eggs and take their first flight. The best part about setting up a security camera is that you can monitor everything directly from your phone.

Do you NEED a security camera?

No, not necessarily. If you live in a good neighborhood and don't think you need a security camera, then don't get one. It's not for everyone. It can certainly help to have one, but it's not a necessity.

Where to buy a security camera?

Security cameras are more readily available and can be purchased at stores such as London DrugsBest BuyWalmart.

This Sunday we are celebrating the 108th anniversary of francophone in Maillardville. Maillardville is a small french community within the city of Coquitlam where the first french Canadians settled when they crossed Canada from Quebec to work the logging operations in B.C. 108 years is a long time and Team Leo is excited to be a part of this amazing event to celebrate the community's history. If you do attend the festival, make sure you look out for the Team Leo smart car, and also make sure to stop by the Team Leo tent to say hi to Jasmine. She would love to see you. 



This event is family friendly and features a lot of great games, music and so much more. From what we hear, there's going to be a lot of cool things set up for you. Here are a few of the things we're most looking forward to:

Live Performances

If you love supporting local artists and seeing concerts in person, then make sure to check out Alouest, Maillardville's very own band. They bring their own West Coast charm and flair to French Canadian music. They have a lot of great songs which we love.

Games

Along with the well-loved bean bag toss, we also hear that there will be a number of other games for you to enjoy. A game of Petanque will be set up for your enjoyment.

Fitness Programs

Osteofit

An Osteofit workshop is scheduled to help educate everyone about health and fitness. The instructors will help you learn about safe and gentle exercises to keep you comfortable during your workout.

Zumba

A great selection of awesome music paired with a mixture of dance and aerobic movements, is there a better workout out there? I think not. Who doesn't love to move their body to the beat of some great music? Make sure to find the Zumba initiation and join in on the fun.   Wow, with all the cool things happening, this event is promising to be great. We hope you have fun celebrating at this festival!
