Smart Home Security 101

by Ronald Elias

1. Smart Locks

When it comes to smart home security, what’s the best place to start? Your locks. Smart locks. 

It used to be that you needed to remember to lock your doors as you left your house. With smart locks you can check if you remembered to lock your door no matter where you are, and you can even lock or unlock them remotely as needed. That’s the power of technology, right there.

2. Smart Cameras

No matter if cameras are already part of your home security efforts or not, smart cameras can make your home safer, smarter, and more secure. 

How can a smart camera help you? Instead of sending you false alerts, smart cameras can tell the difference between wind, animals, and potential intruders. They also can let you see a live stream from wherever you are, giving you hard-to-come-by peace of mind even while on vacation a world away.

3. Smart Lighting 

Wait, you thought you clicked on a smart home article? Why are we talking about smart lighting now?

Because smart lighting can actually work in conjunction with your smart security. Motion activated lights, smart light timers, and smart outdoor lighting can all help keep your house safe and secure even when you are away.


4. Oh, the Other Areas too 

Break ins are just one household security issue, but they aren’t the only one that you should be worried about. Smart home security systems can also notify you of glass breaks, water leaks, and of smoke or carbon monoxide issues. Sleep better knowing your smart security system is keeping an eye over your home and family.

5.  Invest in a Safe Future

Look, we get it -- you might not want to stay put forever, and you might want to sell your house. That’s fine! Smart home security can still be helpful for you.

In fact, more than half of people looking at new homes want a smart camera or smart lock installed already. So, smart home tech is not only an investment in your present safety, but an investment in the value of your house in the long term. 

When it comes to smart home tech, it’s easy for the flashy stuff to get the most attention. Smart home security is just as important, though! If you have any questions about making your smart home safer, give us a call today!
