Many of our clients are interested in finding different ways to enhance safety and security in their homes. With advancements in technology, there are now a plethora of devices available on the market designed to do just that. Here are some of the most popular and useful electronics made to keep your home safe and sound.  

 

Doorbell Camera

The modern version of a peephole, the doorbell camera doesn’t just let you see who is standing at your door with extreme clarity, these devices also record. This means that package theft, vandalism, or other suspicious activity is recorded whether or not you are home. It also helps to give parents peace of mind when their children are home alone. 

 

Smart Surveillance 

In keeping with the video recording theme, smart surveillance systems are also available to homeowners. These can be set up in garages, near windows and doors, or wherever you need an extra set of eyes. Simply download the associated app and you will be able to access live and previous recordings.

 

Smart Door Locks

Have you ever loaded up the family in the car for a much-awaited vacation, only to drive away and realize you didn’t lock the doors? Smart door locks allow you to lock or unlock the door from your mobile device. These devices also allow you to open the door for contractors working in your home while you’re away without giving them a physical key and risking it getting lost.

 

Motion Sensors

Motion sensors can be integrated into your home security system in two main ways. The first is through motion sensor lights. Lights that suddenly turn on when they sense movement are a deterrent to potential thieves. The second way is alarmed motion sensors. These will trigger an alarm whenever there is movement in the targeted area. 

While this is by no means an exhaustive list of all the electronic safety devices you can integrate into your home, it is a great jumping-off point for those who want to improve the security of their home.
