Brilliant security system is a system without the security

If your security system is at the point where it has to go up against a real thief, it's already lost. The most effective systems are ones that are so good at security that they don't have to do anything , which is why LaserScan works brilliantly even though it does not, in fact, provide any actual security whatsoever.

LaserScan is not designed to be a security system. It doesn't have a motion detector, it doesn't have an alarm, it can't call for help, and it in fact it will blissfully ignore thieves, crooks, burglars, pilferers, Canadians, robbers, bandits, pirates, ninjas, zombies, ninjazombies, and pirateninjas. Here is what LaserScan will do: it will look like it's impossibly sophisticated and secure and, hopefully, scare the socks off of anyone casing your joint. Watch:

Sweeping laser beams. Things that beep. A cryptic blinking light that refers to some sort of satellite uplink. Seriously, who in their right mind besides Catherine Zeta-Jones would break into a place with all that craziness goin' on?

At just under $200, LaserScan shouldn't be difficult to justify, provided that it works as advertised. And the key to it working as advertised is simple: nobody can know that it exists, because if word gets out, LaserScan will be useless. So, just do us a favor and don't tell anyone about this post and just forget you ever even read it, okay? Oh, you do that already? Oh. Sigh.
