The smart home is a new way of living that brings convenience and automation into our residences. We are seeing more and more smart devices being introduced to the market, such as smart locks, smart thermostats, smart lights, and even robotic vacuums. These innovations have been designed to make our lives easier by taking care of tasks we used to do ourselves or never did at all (such as scheduling lighting). These smart devices can also be used to improve security at our residences.
This blog post will discuss some smart home automation features that improve residential security, so you don’t need to worry about your family’s safety while you sleep.
Smart Lighting and Motion Detectors
Smart lighting and motion detectors are smart devices that help you keep your house safe by detecting out of the ordinary activity while you’re away from the house, or asleep. These smart lights also act as an intruder alarm system.
When activated or triggered, the smart lighting and motion detectors start sending messages back to your smart home hub. You can then use smart devices such as door locks or smart speakers like Amazon Echo, Google Home, etc., that are connected with this smart security system to lock doors remotely using a mobile app on your smartphone.
With smart locks installed at all entrances and exits of your home along with its windows, you can rest assured that your smart lock will monitor all the doors and windows to ensure no one breaks in. It’s like having a smart watchdog guarding your home at all times, day or night!
Most smart cameras are wireless IP-based, and can be installed in and around the house. These smart devices use artificial intelligence to detect unusual activity around them, such as an intruder trying to break into the house or someone attempting to steal your car. When it detects unusual activity, the smart camera will send you a notification on your smartphone so that you can check out what is happening and open up footage of this incident to help police with their investigation.
With smart alarms, you don’t need to worry about whether or not someone broke into your house while you are not around. Smart alarms will send you a notification on your smartphone when the alarm is automatically triggered.
With smart thermostats, you don’t have to worry about either heating up or cooling down a large house, as a smart thermostat will allow you to adjust the temperature even if you are far away.
