While modern times have certainly seen us place greater emphasis on crime prevention, especially with the proliferation of increasingly sophisticated technology geared towards safeguarding ourselves, our families, property and possessions, security threats have been around pretty much since the dawn of humankind. Sadly, crime has permeated society since time immemorial and, until we find some way of establishing a completely law-abiding utopia, it’s likely to be around for a while.
Prior to the advent of security technology, our ancestors had to rely on some interesting methods of being alerted to possible security threats, methods that might elicit a giggle or two although they were undeniably ingenious and, for the most part, surprisingly effective. For example, the ancient Romans – ever the innovative bunch – would position a gaggle of geese outside their fortifications to alert them to approaching enemies. Not exactly known for their poise and restraint, these avian alarm systems are not only loud, but also highly territorial and ferocious and are not above feathery fury. In Japan during the Edo period, carpenters would install special wooden flooring known as nightingale floors (also called uguisubari) in the castle halls that would squeak and chirp when tread upon.
Intruder-detection has evolved past feisty fowl and tattletale floors, of course, and today innovations in technology is putting security and peace of mind at our fingertips.
