Movies

101 Dalmatians: Cruella de Vil's schemes to steal the adorable puppies could be foiled by a DIY home security system installed at the Darlings’ home.

Ant-Man: The hero's ability to shrink might be hindered by micro-sensors in a home security system, posing a significant obstacle to his stealthy exploits.

Die Hard: John McClane's battle against terrorists would intensify with state-of-the-art security measures complicating his mission to save hostages.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts could enhance its magical defenses with enchanted security systems, safeguarding against intruders seeking to disrupt the school's tranquility. But a home security system could also keep Harry from ever leaving Number 4 Privet Drive.

Home Alone: Kevin McCallister's antics to outsmart burglars would be different if his home had a robust security system, perhaps relying more on triggering alarms and surveillance cameras than homemade booby traps.

Gone Girl: A home security system could provide crucial evidence to unravel the truth behind Amy Dunne's disappearance, altering the course of the investigation.

The Grinch: Perimeter sensors and automated lighting at Whoville houses could deter the Grinch's burglary attempts, leaving him unable to carry out his devious plans to ruin Christmas.

John Wick: Even the infamous Baba Yaga would face challenges navigating homes fortified with sophisticated security systems, potentially altering his relentless pursuits.

Jurassic Park: Unfortunate existing security failures at the park lead to dinosaurs running amok. But with a comprehensive home security system, early detection of breaches could prevent chaos, ensuring the safety of visitors and staff. Motion sensors and surveillance cameras could alert authorities to escapees, allowing for swift containment and minimizing the threat.

Lemony Snicket: The Baudelaire children could face fewer perilous situations with a robust home security system protecting them from Count Olaf's schemes.

Matilda: Surveillance cameras and alarms could mitigate Miss Trunchbull's reign of terror at Crunchem Hall, ensuring the safety of the students.

Snow White: A home security system could thwart the Evil Queen's attempts to harm Snow White with poisoned apples, alerting her to the danger before she takes a bite. Alternatively, a home security system would inform the dwarves the minute Snow White entered their cottage.

Taken: With a comprehensive home security system, the protagonist might anticipate the abduction and prevent the kidnapping, sparing his family anguish.

When a Stranger Calls: Security features could help identify the caller, minimizing the threat and ensuring the babysitter's safety.
