The field of home security has greatly benefited from the technological advancements of the past decade. Some of these advancements allow for would-be criminals to be caught in the act, while others make keeping your home safe easier and more convenient. Let’s explore three developments that are making homes safer around the world.
Access Code Home Lock
If you’ve ever lost your keys or locked your door with your keys still inside, you can imagine how useful being able to use an access code to unlock your door might be. This technology lets you open your doors with a simple numerical combination. Since there are no keys used, no one can steal your keys or find your spare key and get into your house. And if you’re locked out, there’s no need to break into your own home either. Simply put in your code and you’re in!
Smart Video Doorbell
With a smart video doorbell, you’ll never be surprised by unannounced visitors again. This device uses a wireless camera placed alongside your doorbell to record all the movement going on outside your home and give you a clear image of your front door. It’s very useful in reducing package theft and helping to identify potential burglars, and best of all, you can access the video feed from your smartphone no matter where you are.
Use your smart video doorbell to alert you when someone is coming up to your door. This way you’ll always know when someone is approaching your home, even when you’re away. There are a lot of things you can use your smart video doorbell for.
Smart Emergency Notification Jewellery
This technology is especially useful for elderly or disabled individuals who choose to live alone but can be helpful for anyone who may be concerned with their safety. Often equipped with GPS location data, smart jewellery allows them to call for help with the push of a button in case of an emergency. Police, firefighters, and an ambulance can be quickly dispatched to the location so the person can have immediate help.
This technology has evolved beyond the days of “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” into stylish necklaces, bracelets, armbands, and watches. It has saved countless lives and is a practical way of safeguarding the lives of yourself or your loved ones who live or spend time home alone.
As technology continues to advance, many more developments in home security are sure to follow that will continue to protect our houses and property. But for now, we can feel safe knowing that the interconnectivity of our modern world allows us to keep our families safe no matter where we are.
