How Technology has Improved Home Security as We Know it
Updated: Nov 5, 2020
Home security has evolved over the years, introducing new tech features that bring monitoring and updates to the cell phone.
In less than three years, the industry has introduced infrared detectors, window sensors, automatic sirens, HD recordings, and home security systems connected to Alexa and Google. But where do you begin?
Here is a breakdown of this technology and how it can help keep your home secure when you’re away, or on the comfort of your couch.
Home Sensors track movement throughout the home, and in some cases, they can determine identity from motion detection and waves. Home sensors can easily be on doors and windows, and like many other home security features, can be monitored via a smartphone.
Smart Door Locks
Smart door locks are solving the issue of wondering whether you locked the door or not. Doors with smart locks can be unlocked or locked via an app, or in some cases, a keypad, making it more difficult for keys to be duplicated and break-ins to occur.
Video monitoring has been a valuable tool for homeowners and city dwellers especially as it easily allows you to keep an eye on home whether you are there or on the go via live video and pictures.
Smart thermostats allow users to adjust the temperature of their home from anywhere, which is great year round for the commuter as they can arrive at a perfectly warm or cool home. Smart thermostats can help users keep cost down on heat and air since they allow homeowners to easily monitor the thermostat from anywhere and keep the thermostat on a schedule.
Smart Garages eliminate the need to carry around a garage door opener by allowing homeowners to open and close their garage door via an app. This a wonderful option for those with school-age children or pets as parents can let their children in and out while at work or commuting.
