Your home is your castle, which makes protecting your castle from intruders a top priority. To help you increase the security of your home, you will discover five smart tech products you can purchase to keep your home safe.
1. Smart Locks
Smart locks such as the August Smart Lock allow you to control entry into your home with ease and better security. You do not have to leave a key under the mat for a guest, where an intruder could find it. Simply allow them into your home with a virtual key on their smartphone or through a code they input into the lock.
Home surveillance systems will help keep your home safe.
2. Surveillance Systems
Home surveillance systems provide you with peace of mind when you are not home. With advancements in technology, it has become easy to set up a home surveillance system using readily available cameras. Cameras such as the Canary All-In-One Home security device or the Nest Cam Outdoor allow you to keep tabs on your home from anywhere. You can watch the live feed of your home by putting an IP address into your computer or phone.
3. Nest Protect Fire and Carbon Monoxide Detector
This smart smoke, fire, and carbon monoxide detector helps keep your home safe. It is different from traditional fire detectors as it will remind you when you have left a burner on or the exact location of the threat. When you are not home, the device will warn you of any threats via text so you can alert the relevant people in a timely manner and likely save your belongings in the process.
4. Honeywell Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector
A water leak in your house will probably turn into an expensive affair. You will likely have to replace your belongings destroyed by the water, the pipes and some parts of your home. The Honeywell Lyric Wi-Fi Water Leak and Freeze Detector prevents this from happening as it warns you of any issue with your plumbing. A frozen pipe, a leaking machine or a broken pipe can all be prevented by replacing it as soon as the device alerts you.
Home surveillance cameras will help deter intruders.
5. Floodlight Cam by Ring
This camera distinguishes itself from regular home surveillance cameras as it can recognise familiar faces from intruders. Once a threat has been identified, a floodlight comes on and the homeowner can set off an alarm at the click of a button. This is usually enough to deter intruders. As an added layer, you can even speak to the intruder via the camera to scare them off.
