Smart home technology which could boost your security Posted On 24 January 2023

The safer you feel in your own home, the better

 

The world of smart home technology is fantastic for making your life easier in so many ways, one small step at a time.

From the day you install your first home assistance speaker, such as an Amazon Echo or Google Home, you will slowly learn more and more fantastic things they can do.

While automated morning alarms, voice controlled lighting and even the ability to open and close your curtains without standing up, are all brilliant uses, you can actually use smart home technology to boost the security of your home.

Luckily, the market is flooded with plenty of pieces of tech you can pick up to link up with your smart home system to increase security.

 

Doorbells

 

One of the first pieces of home security many will invest in when exploring the world of smart home technology is an upgraded doorbell.

Gone are the days where their only function is to send a ring throughout the home to alert you that someone is at the door.

Now, these clever little doorbells can connect to your phone, enabling you to see and speak with those who are at the front door.

Some smart doorbells also offer a live video feed of the space outside your door, to be able to see and review anything happening on your property.

 

Cameras

 

Additional cameras can also be purchased, which you can place around the inside and outside of your home.

These will once again provide you with a live feed of what is happening at your home, fed directly into your phone which you can review in real time or can check back on recordings.

 

Motion sensors

 

The market for smart home technology is regularly flooded with the best and newest ideas to help automate your home.

Another product available are motion sensor alarms, which will alert you to any movement within the device's set area.

 

Simply set one of these devices in an area which you want to keep an eye on and once again you can be alerted on your phone to movement there.
