Ever wanted to catch Santa while he is sneaking into your home in the dark early hours of Christmas morning?
Well, husband and wife duo Julie and Ben Hill have created an interesting start-up that will allow you to do just that.

Santa CCTV produces a unique personal home surveillance video of Santa in your own home using your own home photos, to keep the Christmas magic alive for your kids.
