You’ve seen a lot of information recently about home security and its importance. Maybe your neighbour installed a high-tech, all-inclusive, flashy smart home system that could make coffee in the morning. Now, you are looking to install one yourself, but you want to keep up with the latest in alarm technology without overspending and getting a system that you don’t need all of.
The developing trends for 2024 can help you make informed decisions about what elements of home security you may want to include. Combining AI and home security results in an interactive smart home that understands what you need and how to make life comfortable. The cartoon “The Jetsons” is becoming a reality.
More and more people are investing in a new doorbell system with a microphone and camera. This rise in sales could reach over $ 1.4 billion in the next two years, proving that security at the front door is something people are investing in. Gone are the days of not knowing who is at your front door!
This security feature allows you to monitor, see, and even talk to someone who shows up at your door. The delivery man may be dropping off parcels, or the dog walker may be coming to pick up Fluffy for their midday walk. You can converse with the person, give instructions on where to leave a parcel or be more confident about opening the door to a stranger.
If porch pirates have been an issue in the area, the doorbell camera records everything on your front step and can even see across the street and monitor people going past.
Footage from these cameras proves to be a helpful resource in court as they have clear images and audio recordings.
With the introduction of things like Google Home, Alexa and other AI devices, there is a growing trend for smart home applications to make our lives easier.
Smart locks remove the need to search for your house keys, smart thermostats control the home environment when you are not there, and even smart lights will light the way when you need them the most.
But why is this futuristic home concept growing in popularity? Aside from being able to control most things with voice commands, there are other benefits to Smart Home Technology.
Thermostats can help you reduce your utility bills and save money. You can program them to lower the temperature when you are not there and raise it when you are on your way home. Smart lights can be programmed to turn on at set times in designated rooms, giving the illusion of someone being home when you are not.
More time is spent looking for keys than actually using them. Smart locks allow you to assign codes to people. It lets you see who is coming and going and saves time not looking for that one key to open the door.
As this trend rises, we can expect to see more technology like this developed in the future.
Many apps on our phones now have biometric security, meaning you can scan your thumb or finger on the sensor to unlock your phone, access your bank, and other apps.
There is an increasing desire to integrate this into our home security systems, and this technology is becoming available.
Biometric access via fingerprint, iris recognition, or facial recognition is being introduced to door systems as an upgrade to current smart locks, which require a code. Even access panels could soon use this instead of manually entering a code.
Internet of Things (IoT) is not an alternative name to the Internet for people trying to describe it. It is the name of the system that connects all smart home security system features on your network.
By integrating this and taking advantage of its features, you can control the smart features in your home even more via an app on your phone.
The system connects everything together. You can program lights, heating, door locks and even check the home via cameras, all from the palm of your hand. This unique system is growing in popularity as the ability to do even more from your phone is something that most people are looking for now.
Save money on utilities, save the environment and talk to people in your home, such as care workers, construction crews, or just chat with your teenager at home early from school. IoT is revolutionizing the home security system by giving you the ultimate control.
A home used to be where you went after a long day at the office. It was filled with your comfort things, your family, good food, and security.
As time goes on and technology develops, the idea of what goes into a home to make it home is changing. AI and smart technology see us moving into the future with sci-fi-like appliances, biometric security and smart mirrors that show you the weather as you brush your teeth.
Security features are increasing with new ways to assist you daily while protecting what's important. Tailoring this to what you want or need allows you to make your home as you see it. Not every feature is for everyone.
