How does it work?:
This was the aftermath of the tulsa race riot
The home security system has a set of 4 peep holes
and a camera that could slide up and down to look
through each hole and whatever the camera would see
would appear on the monitor so you could see if there
is an intruder or any type of danger, also, you could
unlatch the door by using a remote control.
