Marie Van Brittan Brown’s Home Security Breakthrough

In the 1960s, rising crime rates left Marie Van Brittan Brown, a dedicated nurse, feeling vulnerable and unsure of her safety. She created the first home security system with her husband, using cameras and motion sensors to detect and record intruders. Their patent was approved in 1966, but the initial response was lukewarm.

As crime rates continued to rise, the importance of their invention became clear. Businesses and homeowners began to adopt the system, which improved safety and contributed to the development of more sophisticated security solutions.

Marie Van Brittan Brown’s courageous efforts paved the way for modern home security systems. Next time you use it, remember Marie – the unsung hero who revolutionised home security.
