Remote Home Monitoring

The security of your house and family is your top priority wherever you go. Using remote home monitoring systems allows you to remotely monitor and control your home for a plethora of conditions like a burglar, flooding, carbon monoxide, pipes busting, etc.

You can keep an eye on your pets and when your children get back home from school. When someone suspicious breaks into your home or something unpleasant happens, you receive an alert on your smartphone, allowing you to react instantly.

Imagine you could see who is knocking at your door by merely looking at your phone. What if you doorbell could log all the time someone visits your home?

Installing a practical and futuristic smart doorbell prevents intruders from crossing the boundary of your home. A Los Angeles Police Department pilot program held in 2015 found that Ring’s smart doorbells reduced burglaries in neighborhoods by around 55%.

A smart doorbell is an internet-capable doorbell with built-in cameras, speakers and a microphone. It is easy and quick to install. Whenever someone presses the doorbell, you receive an alert on your phone, and you can see using the camera which is at the door. You can even talk with them using the speakers and microphone.

Smart LED Lights

More than 70 percent of burglaries take place when nobody is home. Using smart remote-controlled LED lights, you can make the lights pretend that someone is home when your house is empty, using your smartphone. You can modify brightness for every room and turn lights inside and outside on or off on a schedule.

Smart LED lights are especially useful when you are out of the city or want to save electricity while on vacation.

Keyless Home Locks

Keys of traditional locks are susceptible to being picked by intruders, or you may lose them accidentally. However, with keyless home locks, you do not have to fumble around with keys or fear to lose them as there is no physical key involved.

All you need is to type an access code on the keypad of your lock to enter your house. Only those having the access code can unlock your home, allowing no undetected strangers break in the house. Just make sure you choose keyless home locks only from reliable home safety equipment and different alarm packages.

Automated Security Gates

Also known as automatic driveway gates, security gates are the first layer of security for your home.

If an intruder cannot even get through your home, they cannot get to the front door of your house. These security gates give you protection and monitoring capabilities. You can control who can enter your space and view which tries to access your property maliciously.

An automatic security gate provides a greater sense of security while your kids play in the yard, as you know they will not have to deal with strangers strolling in the street.

Fall Detection Device

Do you have elderly parents or grandparents or someone with a disability at your home?

If yes, a fall detection device is a must for you.

According to WHO (World Health Organization), every year around 6, 46,000 individuals die from falls worldwide. Adults older than 65 years suffer the most significant risks of fatal falls.

To prevent this from happening to your senior loved ones, you must install a fall detection device at your home. This device has detection sensors that can differentiate between daily activities and a sudden fall.

If the device senses an out of place movement, it will instantly send a notification to the chosen phone number which could either your phone number or emergency service.

Conclusion

Smart security systems are becoming more affordable, allowing more and more people to protect their property and families. These come packaged with a professional security system, or you can get these tools from a local home improvement store for DIY.
