How the Internet Changed Home SecurityMarch 29th, 2016 | by Provision Home | in Security Advice News and Blog Articles
Knowing that your home is your safe haven has always been a top priority. Over the years there have been many ways of keeping your home and property safe and sound.
Now, thanks to modern technology, you can go a lot further than guard dogs and motion-detection lighting. Completely automated technology is now available for everyone, allowing mobile devices to rule the day.
Here are five ways that the Internet has changed home security:
- Remote Monitoring
It used to be that when you left home for the day, you might be wondering if your security system was working. Now, you can log on to your system via a security app and check everything. You can check cameras, alarms, and watch who comes to your front door. Best of all, you can receive alerts when something looks unusual or suspicious.
- Fire Alarms
No matter where you are, you will be alerted to fire alarms and other alarms such as carbon monoxide monitors. If there is a real problem, you can alert your family to get out, and call 911.
- Automating Your Home
Everything can now be switched on and off right from your computer or smartphone. Have kids who love to leave the door unlocked? No problem. Temperature, lighting and other technological features of your home can be adjusted remotely, affording you greater convenience, security, and safety, particularly advantageous when you're on vacation.
- Voice Communication
You can now talk to your kids or whoever is at your door without them ever knowing that you're not doing so from home.
Thanks to advances in technology and production, automated home security is affordable and accessible to all.
Those who see your new home security system may get the impression that you are a DIY expert, but many systems are actually easy to install. Protecting your home and family or business just got a whole lot easier!
