Inventor Ian Burgess has created a security conscious garden gnome - to help protect empty homes over the festive season. Mr. Burgess's 'Festive Garden Guardian' conceals an adapted network wireless security camera coupled with day and night motion sensors.
The camera takes photos of any intruders which are then instantly sent to a pre-determined email address or mobile phone. The homeowner can also log on to the camera remotely, via a laptop or smart phone, to monitor what's going on at their home.
