WGN: Police partners with the Neighbors app to help solve burglaries

 

[VIDEO] I remember a few years ago when neighborhood security cameras usually on housing in West Chesterfield helped to solve the murder and robbery of a Cook County Judge. For those of you interested in some new technologies to help secure your home you have Neighbors app by Ring. Basically there is a doorbell you purchase which also has a camera.

Usually with this camera you can see - using an app you can probably check your mobile device such as a phone or tablet - who's at the door. As far as being able to help police you can send your information anonymously.

There is a heavy focus on Ward 19 or Beverly/Morgan Park. In a previous story from WGN shared on this blog recently there was some recording of the gun shots. Of course that camera was likely a good distance away from the shooting at a pancake house on Western Avenue perhaps that was something provided by a user of the neighbors app.

Just something to share with you all, something to utilize to help secure your home and certainly to be able to see who visits your home while you're at work. Even if you just want to know post office came by to drop off your mail.
