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.
