The safety of your home and family is extremely important; you want to feel that you are safe and secure at all times. With smart technology, we’re closer than ever to having that feeling. We’re becoming able to access our home security features right at our fingertips by using our smartphone, tablet or laptop, giving us peace of mind that our homes are safe even when we’re half a world away.
The technological advancements in the home security industry are growing at a faster rate than most. Here are a few newly developed smart technologies that are working towards making this a safer place for all:
With the name being so obvious, you might already have an idea as to what this device entails. Bluetooth smart locks allow you to open or lock your door using your smartphone, regardless of your physical location. This is not only beneficial for times that you’re not quite sure whether or not you locked the door, but is great for allowing people access into your house, as well. Working late and can’t get home to let your dog out? You can easily allow a trusted neighbour into your home to help you out, while having the peace of mind that your house is locked up when they’re done.
It only takes a minute to set these up completely, but they provide a level of security that is nearly unparalleled. If you want to be able to see what’s happening in your home, these are the perfect devices. With WiFi capabilities, you can check up on the family pet, keep intruders out, and even simply make sure your kids are doing their homework before you get home from work.
All robbers enter homes the same way: Either through a door, or through your windows. Being able to remotely access both will not only keep your home safe, but in the event that someone does break in, having the ability to notify the police as soon as it happens can make the difference between catching the burglar and recovering your belongings, and having them get away.
Depending on the size of your home, it may be difficult to keep tabs on everyone depending on which area of the house you’re in. But with portable intercoms, you can stay connected with your family no matter which room you’re in. These systems generally come with the ability to connect several units, giving you full home coverage.
Fingerprint scanners still seem like something that is only available in 90’s action movies, but today they’re so common, they can even be found on our cellphones and, in this case, on our front door locks. You can use the fingerprint technology to gain access to your home, ensuring that your family is never vulnerable should your house keys ever find themselves in the wrong hands.
With these detector and sensors, you will be alerted if there is potential break-in happening through your windows. Most of these devices have a range of up to 25 feet and an extensive battery life, so false alarms are minimal.
