Let’s check all the things that were done right.

Sturdy door. They bad guys tried but failed to open the door quickly. It may have given the homeowner time to activate his plan.
Camera. It is a wild guess, but the delay in shooting is probably explained by the homeowner checking the feed and realizing they were not “Seattle Police.”
Motion activated light. I think we have heard this before: Be sure of your target.
Don’t break perimeter. No need to go John Wick close up and personal. Better they don’t see you coming.
HAVE A GUN! At the end of the day (or night in this instance) it was the proper application of firepower that ended the attack.

I love happy endings. How about you?

  1. Thirteen seconds elapse from first kick on the door to beach and bang. It takes me at least twice that to unlock my phone, launch the bloated app, watch it animate a wheel, choose the right camera and not the lighting, then finally start the app loading the live video stream… A stream which fails to load 2/3rds the time.

    Best to first grab the boomstick. It’s only got one simple control and it operates decisively in milliseconds.

  2. 1) The miscreants escaped apparently unharmed, so the “happy ending” was a bit incomplete.
    2) 26+ seconds to open the camera app – yeah, me, too. Methinks it’s time for a separate, dedicated “dumb” peephole or front door camera with its very own display that’s always powered on.

  3. Security cameras for home entryways should be direct live feed systems and not Wi-Fi internet-based systems. I have both. My Wi-Fi internet system sends push notifications to my phone directly from the camera unit, which requires about ten seconds or slightly less for access and interaction. And as far as Wi-Fi internet communication, upgrading to the fastest broadband speeds such as 1200 mbps download and 50 mbps upload speeds greatly improves access times = 12-15 seconds which is the same time required to walk to the doorways to use a peephole from the remote areas of my home. (broadband tests average 1000 down and 43 up speeds)
