Re: Surveillance/security cameras

Regarding surveillance cameras, would it be possible to set some up around my house and watch them, sometimes, remotely, maybe with a smart phone application? After an inheritance, my wife and I are looking at this castle ; we would like to buy something beautiful while we still work, so that we wil...

Re: Fire alarms

Okay, this was posted as spam, but I think that sprinklers can serve a purpose... if the room they're set in is prepared for it.

Re: Who are we?
