Accessible home security systems

Cristóbal
 

Hello list,

So I’m sure this topic has come up before, but I don’t recall what the feedback was.

In any event, I’m considering getting some sort of home security system and was curious to know what other blind folks are using. Be it motion sensors and or cameras and so on.

I was looking into just getting a front door type of camera set up, but was thinking of perhaps just going all in and getting the whole thing and not just a camera for the one door.

I’m leaning toward Simply Safe www.simplysafe.com

As there are no contracts involved and none of that hard wiring that is necessary for a more traditional set up. But checking their site, it doesn’t seem like they’ve got many if any camera options.

I know I can also run down to my local Costco or other store like that for security cameras, but again, accessible or at least accessible by me to some extent would be ideal. Be it via an iOS app or other computer means. I know I can always rely on my sighted wife if need be, but I’d still like to be able on some level access what I need to when I need to.

I’m especially interested in something that also includes a front door camera and intercom. There have been more and more daytime burglaries in my surrounding neighborhoods so answering the door in a more safe manner would be nice. The wife and I are fortunate in that we run our businesses from home, so it’s not like the place looks abandoned during the day, but still. I’m not too keen on blindly opening the door per say when someone knocks. The same for having my wife just answering the door.

Anyway, I have to believe that people on these lists have some kind of set up so I thought I’d ask.

Mainly though, I’m not looking for contracts and heavy wiring and installations. Even if it’s just cameras, that’s fine. Just something  that can be reasonably accessed.

 

Thanks,

Cristobal

Re: ISO online stores that carry laptop computer bags

Matt
 

Try office depo or staples or office max . But don’t know if that will help with how fast your computer can browse.

Something like a laptop bag you almost want to put your hands on it.

You could get her a gift certificate to like office depo or Staples or Walmart or even Amazon gift card and then let her pick it out especially if she is sited. JST

Re: setting up ITunes to use with my iPhone

Matt
 

Yes I usually buy things on the iPhone. But this being said you still need iTunes from time to time. I don't know why the box is popping up to down load iTunes other than you are not running the latest version of iTunes. So I would check my iTunes and see if there is a update for it. So go to help and check for updates and see if there is some updates you don't have yet
Also you can create your apple ID and such from the web as well just follow this link below I think it will be easier to do it from there than from iTunes.

https://appleid.apple.com/

Re: Firefox do I need an earlier version?

Matt
 

Well, it works with 17 but not perfect by no means. The tools and option
part I could never make head or tails with jaws other than just the general
option under tools and options. Don't know if I was doing something wrong or
not ended up using NVDA and it worked perfectly with it. So was using jaws
17 latest version and Firefox V43 and it not doing the greatest and ended up
with latest version of NVDA and latest version of Firefox and they worked
perfectly together.
So my recommendation would be to use the latest version of Firefox and the
latest version of NVDA. JST!

Hi all,

Using Win7 and Jaws15. I thought it would make a change from using Windows
explorer if I used Firefox as it's been a long time since I last used it .
However I downloaded and installed Version 43 only to find I could not
access any of the tools with Jaws or NCDA, all I had access to was the
Google search box.

What version of Firefox should I be using?

Go into computer and when you're sitting in your local drive where all the folders are shown, go to tools menu. Then options. It's a properties sheet, so you want to hit ctrl-tab once and tab around till you get to the tree-view, it's in there, about eight or nine down.

Re: Comparison online shopping question.

That sounds like something a Firefox add-on could  do.

You  may have to poke around, but I bet you’ll be able to find one that can more or less do that. I do recall many versions back, I had an add-on that did this in fact, but I don’t remember the name any more.

Well, just went up and bought 50 credits for 99 cents for 1 year.

Now they sent me a email for my account which contained my user name which

Went up and sign in and it had the details of my account and where to by
more if I needed too.

But there was nowhere to change any of your account settings like your
email
or your password.

So for those that bought credits from Rumola I would assume you would need
to keep your user name and password handy as you cannot change it to
something you know it looks like.

Unless clicking on the forgot password would let you create one yourself.

I don't know if it would or just generate another one for you and send it
