Smart home security gives you peace of mind and a virtual lock for protecting your home.
Smart door locks are Wi-Fi or Bluetooth-enabled devices that allow you to lock and unlock doors via an app on your smartphone. Smart locks open and close deadbolts electronically. This type of keyless entry allows you to open a door by simply tapping an icon or speaking a command. This way you won’t have to search for keys when your arms are full with groceries.
You can see who is at your door even if you aren’t there. This device is also known as a doorbell camera and streams live video to your smartphone via Wi-Fi. The app will notify you if someone rings the doorbell, or if the camera detects movement. You can then speak to the person at your door by streaming live video from the video doorbell to your smartphone. If you need to keep track of who was on your porch, you can record the video and save it either to your phone or to the cloud. A video doorbell is an essential item, many people agree. About 20 million homes in the United States had video doorbells by 2020 (16%). According to industry analysts, this number will rise significantly as more people adopt smart-home technology.
Smart motion sensors are battery-powered devices that detect when something or someone crosses their path and trigger an action. It can communicate over ZWave or Zigbee. The motion sensor can do anything from turning on the lights when someone enters a room to telling when your toddler climbs out of her crib. Motion sensors can also be activated by a lack of motion. Lights will turn off if there is no one in the room. To control smart lights and speakers, you can simply tap an icon to run motion sensors from your smartphone’s app.
A security kit is a way to make your DIY smart home security more than just one or two devices. These kits, also known as a home surveillance system, replace the alarm systems that you had to have installed by a professional. These kits usually include motion and contact sensors, a base station, which is the wireless brain of your system, and touch screen control panels.
Protecting your home with smart tech security devices is easy and affordable. Many of these devices can be installed by you and you only need to pay for the monitoring plan when it is needed. You can monitor your family and home from anywhere via sensors and cameras right from your smartphone. High tech security is at your fingertips with video doorbells, motion sensors, smart locks, and home monitoring system.
