Pokémon Go has been in the news over the past few months, for a mixture of positive and negative reasons. It has been celebrated as an app that promotes exercise, has encouraged children to become more socialwhile out and about and teaches you to be savvy with your mobile data so you can make the most of the game.
It’s an innovative game for mobile, as it utilises augmented reality effectively to place the Pokémon in your living room or back yard to capture with a swipe of the finger. It’s a glimpse into the future of mobile gaming and other developers will soon piggy back on the concept. In fact, people have already been petitioning for a Harry Potter version to be created.
However, there is also the issue of private property and avid Pokémon trainers traipsing onto this to get their hands on the nearest pocket monster. Technology is great but trespassing is not ideal.
It’s causing problems for homeowners, especially if their property has been granted Gym or Poke-stop status and even some historical buildings are trying to get themselves removed from the map.
This is why Security Direct have created this in depth guide on the best solutions for deterring Pokémon Go-ers from invading your property. From fog horns to guard dogs to electric fences they’ve thought of everything, so you have a real choice of what to go for to keep those pesky kids off your lawn.
While the guide is a bit of fun, it’s still important that if you’re playing the game you are respectful of other people and their property, even if there’s a legendary Pokémon in their back garden it’s important you DON’T climb over the fence!
The game doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon – in fact, it’s still turning over $2 million of in-app purchases every day – so be sure to continue enjoying it until the next augmented reality creation is brought out on the app store!
