Lighthouse Video Surveillance participates in a build with Extreme Makeover, Home Edition

The Beach family is a very deserving family that has been helping children in need for many years. Larry, 40 and Melissa, 40; have fostered over 85 children that other adoption agencies were not able to place. They have four biological children and nine adopted children. They include Chris (23,), Michael (21), Jose (20), Mikala (18), Paul (14), Faith (13), Hope (9), Justin (8), Jacob (4), Grace (4), Jeremiah (23 months), Mercy (22 months) and Cody (19) currently serving in the Marine Corps in Afghanistan. During the last 12 years of fostering, they decided to start adopting after seeing that so many were not being placed in homes.

Due to water damage from Hurricane Ike, the Beach family home is unlivable and they have been residing in a travel trailer on their property. However, thanks to ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover, Blue Shield Construction, and countless volunteers, the family will not have to worry about their home situation any longer. In 110 Hours, a 5,700 square foot home was erected for the family. The expansive home has 8 bedrooms, 4 ½ bathrooms, and has a large therapy room for their special needs children.

Lighthouse Video Surveillance provided an extensive CCTV system for the family, with the help of Vitek Industrial Video Products, that covers several concerns. First, the system includes cameras in the nursery of the special needs children, therapy room and play ground. This will allow the family to keep a close eye on the children while the children are sleeping or playing. The video surveillance system is tied into several televisions around the house and there are 2-19 inch monitors and 1-32 inch monitor dedicated specifically to the CCTV system.

Additionally, the perimeter of the home is covered with a blanket of video surveillance views to help protect the family from any would-be perpetrators. Along with the TV show’s help, comes that fact that the details of the family’s home and contents will be displayed on national television. In our country’s current financial situation, crime is on the increase. Video Surveillance cameras are one of the best ways to help prevent crime. If the would-be perpetrators are aware of the presence of a CCTV system, they are much less likely of attempting a burglary or other crimes.
Here at Lighthouse Video Surveillance, we are honored to help keep a close eye on their special needs children and peace of mind for the security of this well deserving family.
