This is video from Texas last week.
Someone posing as a package delivery man and rings a doorbell and his accomplices hold the family at gunpoint.
It shows danger could be lurking on any doorstep.
Tech gift guide Lindsey Jackson has a look at some perfect gift ideas with safety in mind.

- This is more than just a camera. It protects your home with sirens, motion-activated recording, auto-arm/disarm and automatic connection to your local authorities.
