The Ultimate In Home Security - From South Africa

There's this email that has been circulating for a while allegedly showing a home in South Africa that has the ultimate in home security. There are also a few Web sites going back to April that show these same photos - usually with the title Home Security South African Style. The house is amazingly cool and, if for real, it is truly astonishing that someone built a home like this. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the original source of the photos or find out anything about exactly where this home is but I have found numerous references to the fact that crime is really bad in South Africa.

Check out the slide show below to see how this sleek, ultra-modern, luxury palace turns itself into an impenetrable fortress. As someone pointed out it gives new meaning to the concept of locking the house up at night.

  • Don't see any slide show; however Osama proved that nothing keeps Navy Seals out.

  • The slide show is at the bottom of the post. Not sure why you can't see it unless you are reading via email or through an RSS reader.

    Using Firefox, but just getting frames with tabs if I want Adblock to block it. Maybe it already is.

    Gary, were you able to find the original source?

    I'm trying as well all over the place and haven't been lucky yet

    No, I never could.
