Marie V. Brittan Brown invented the home security system utilizing television surveillance and the patent was granted today in 1969. Brown’s system had a set of 4 peep holes and a camera that could slide up and down to look at each one.
Anything and everything the camera picked up would appear on a monitor. Also, a resident could unlatch the door by remote control.
She had help with the Home Security system by her husband, Albert Brown. She was given an Award for The National Scientists Comittee (NSC).
