Worry-Free House: 4 Smart Home Additions for Extra Security

When it comes to the safety of your home and those within your home, you don’t want to take small measures. With technology integrated into practically everything these days, you can also utilize it to better secure your home. Here are four Smart home additions that can improve security in your home.

Doorbell Camera

One of the coolest and latest tech gadgets is a camera that can be easily installed on your doorbell. Given the rise of porch pirates, individuals who steal packages off of your porch, this doorbell camera can be the perfect method for catching them. In addition, it can easily link up with your phone, so you can see who’s at your door without ever getting off of the couch.

Security System Linked To Phone

Another staple for your home is a security system package that is linked to your smartphone. This allows you to keep an eye on things at your home through the cameras you have installed. For those who have 9mm handguns, money, or even valuable works of art, it can give you peace of mind if you’re able to keep an eye on the house, yourself, at any given moment. It’s also a great way to keep an eye on your kids to make sure they don’t get in trouble whether you’re out of the house for work or away on date night.

Smart Locks

One piece of technology that is gaining traction is face-recognition software. This piece of software is being used everywhere from unlocking your phone to being able to unlock your front door. A smart lock can be installed on your front door that is programmed to recognize your face and unlock before you even touch the doorknob. This can make it far easier to get inside without having to hassle around for your keys. Since it’s programmed to recognize your face, it won’t unlock otherwise unless you tell it to.

Smart Hub That Stays on after You Lose Power

Finally, you need a hub that is able to continue monitoring and keeping your home safe even when the power is out. After all, what good will a security system do it if turns off when your power is cut?

Safety should be a priority for homeowners who want their families to be safe. These four smart home security additions can improve the safety of your home easily.
