02 Jul Home Security Tech to Consider
These security technology devices help to protect your home.
There’s no doubt about it, we’re living in a tech era. While new tech has changed the way we communicate, learn, work, and more, new gadgets can also help us to protect our homes. Technology has come a long way in a short amount of time, and keeping your home safe is now easier than ever. Take a look at these home security devices to consider.
Smart Home Cam
Nest Cam, among other cameras on the market, are leading the way in allowing homeowners to be at home while they are away from home. This intelligent camera is essentially a budget-friendly surveillance device that allows you to see the interior or exterior of your property from mobile devices. These smart cameras can tell the difference between a swaying tree and a burglar intent on breaking your back door. You can also position these cameras inside the property to check in on your pets while away from home.
Gone are the days of fumbling around for a key to your front door. Now, smart locks make it possible to open and lock your home from your smartphone. This means you can easily let the kids in while you’re in the office and give temporary access to friends and family without having to copy a key.
Have you ever forgotten to leave a light on while you’re away? Burglars look for houses that are dark since they assume no one is in to warrant turning a light on. If you’re on vacation, it’s wise to leave a light on to signal that someone is home. However, you may not want to leave a light one solidly for 10 tens. There are now systems available that allow you to control your home’s lights from your smartphone – anywhere in the world.
Of course, being vigilant about burglars is wise, too. Don’t broadcast on social media that you’re going away and be sure to keep valuables out of sight.
