Protecting my home

My home also doubles as my workspace. I work as a producer and recording engineer out of a few converted rooms in my home. Part of becoming a reputable audio engineer is having the gear to back it up. I’ve made sure that I am using a state of the art recording desk, high-quality microphones, and that I have a variety of amp and cab options for guitarists who record with me. All up, we’re looking at tens of thousands of dollars kept in equipment alone. In a year I will have over twenty-four music acts come in and out of these doors. Some of these acts are solo musicians, some are bands with four to six people. These people aren’t only stepping into my studio and place of work, but they’re also stepping into my home. This is why I will only work with people I can trust. Unfortunately, that trust was broken a few years ago when someone broke into my house and stole some equipment. I have no idea who it was but it had to have been someone who knew about the equipment I have here. Since this incident, I had no option but to get a CCTV camera installation

I didn’t think I’d ever have to come to this, but I guess if my studio was at any other location I would then need to have cameras. If anything, given the fact it’s at my home, I should be even more driven to have cameras. People know that this is where I live and could try to take advantage of that if they know I am not home. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. 

For the installation, I used the best CCTV installation company near Melbourne, because if you’re going to spend money on something like this, you may as well go with the best. The man who installed the cameras was shocked I hadn’t done so sooner. I guess that’s what happens when you’re too trusting!
