This may sound weird to you but it is worth trying in times such as this we are in when security is a vital factor for survival. Birds as security cameras at night is a practice that may not be common in urban areas but for ages have been used by locals who reside in rural areas in Africa. There are certain kinds of birds that sends different kinds of signals at night such as those on the list we have below:
- Reed warbler.
- Sedge warbler.
- Song thrush.
These birds by zoologists have been tagged noisemakers of the night. These means if any of them is properly domesticated, it can serve as a security camera at night for a home that can’t afford CCTV camera systems in an area that is crime or chaos dominated daily.
If you are buying this idea, we have in this article, mapped out strategies to use to ensure effect security signal reception from the bird of your choice while it is night.
Here are the strategies you will need:
1. Study the bird extremely well:
Often times, humans who rear certain kinds of animals at home have a smart way of understanding what their pet is saying per time by virtue of the gestures or noise it makes around them but a stranger would never understand swiftly. This makes it easy for a unique communication to exist between the pet and its owner. If you intend to convert any of your pet to a security officer, try to understand its communication pattern.
2. Ensure it knows every nook and cranny of your home:
It is very important that the bird you wish to try this out with is taken often round the house so that it can know the pathways to different parts of the house you live in. In Hollywood movies, we see birds serving as navigators to actors who are on a journey. These movies were not making it up. It is real – Birds can do these things. They’ve got great memory space and an extreme sense of remembrance especially in the area of location finding.
3. Be smart enough to understand what directions it makes noise towards at night:
When it makes noise that calls your attention, try to be smart about it when reacting by paying attention to what directions it is pointing at with its sharp voice. Birds are better in this regards than dogs(which are more common) since everyone knows all about the moves of a dog which is – ‘Barking’. Birds are rare in the security business but they are also as smart as necessary in sending needed signals for security consciousness.
