Police, insurance companies and IT security experts are so concerned that they have issued urgent warnings to users to be more vigilant about the personal information they post on the web. But all the evidence suggests that while the public isn’t growing any more internet savvy, the criminals are.
In spite of the warnings, Facebook users continue to tell their ‘friends’ when they are going on holiday; what the address of their party is; when their birthday is; what expensive items they have bought for their homes; and just how sexy they look in that new outfit.
Facebook has become a very popular method to inform friends (and enemies) of your movements. Criminals have been seen to exploit these mediums to gather intel on the movements of their victims.
When you post your status on Facebook, how sure are you that your network of friends are reliable and trustworthy?
In most cases, I suggest friend can be trusted, but remember that it takes just one loose lip to sink a ship.
In the source below, the article explains about some disturbing incidents of crime that have been attributed to status updates on Facebook.

NEC says they largely focus on an individual’s eyes, mouth, or nose, while largely ignoring certain other features, for example the eyebrows. The Nikkei (Japan’s leading business daily) tested the technology just recently if it’s able to recognize the face of an NEC researcher through photos that were taken in 1987 and 2010.
NEC now expects the technology to be used for crime investigations or immigration control, for example. (source...)
Our product sells for about $480 and can be used as an interface for access control. You can use it like a time clock/attendance system, control access to secure facilities or specifically to ensure your employees are arriving at work (not getting a work mate to sign them in).
This new concept, allows a user to immediately know how to operate the hardware. It is simple, yet functional and reasonably easy on the eyes.

In the recent past, I have displayed my lack of affection for wireless standalone security products. Now I think I may have a reason to cheer.
Price on application (a little under $400).

GSM-KEY uses a professional industrial grade GSM engine that receives calls at its SIM number, as any ordinary GSM phone. You need to use any operator that operates in the 900/1800 MHz band, that is the standard in most of the world.
Yes. All electric gates have a button that is used to open them. GSM-KEY has a relay contact that has to be connected to the opening button. It actually pushes the button in your place.
GSM-KEY doesn't answer the call, it simply checks the caller ID. Your network must send the caller ID otherwise GSM-KEY won't work. Usually operators don't charge until you answer the call, so it won't cost you anything to open the gate with GSM-KEY.
Of course you need to have an active SIM inside it, and this may have a monthly fee regardless of the calls.
Check your local operators for these details.
GSM-KEY doesn't have limitations like a normal remote control. Using a mobile phone you can open from very far away, even from another city!
It is really convenient to arrive in front of your house when the gate is already open, without having to wait in the middle of the road, isnt it?
To store a number, you simply send an SMS, that starts with a password, to GSM-KEY, indicating the phone number to enable, and its position in the list.
Numbers are stored in GSM-KEY memory and not on the SIM. This prevents somebody from removing the SIM to copy all the numbers into a mobile phone.
Only the one who knows the password can insert or delete enabled phone numbers.
For faster operation you can order special software to connect the GSM-KEY to your PC and input numbers.
GSM-KEY accepts up to 200 full numbers. In addition, 40 special phone numbers are available that allow entrance to the building by time and days of the week...
What else do I need besides GSM-KEY?
You need only a valid SIM card. Install GSM-KEY, insert SIM, program enabled numbers and you are ready to go.
Is it difficult to install it?
You need to connect the 2 wires that come out of the box in parallel with the Gate push button.
Connect it to AC power, insert SIM and start programming numbers (12 numbers can be programmed with only one SMS).
Installing GSM-KEY is simple for anybody with enough technical skills.
