New Security Technology Makes Homes Safer Than Ever

July 25th, 2019

Security technology continues to improve each and every year. For some, the words “home security” bring to mind images of large alarm systems bolted into their interior or exterior doorways, even though this is really no longer the case. Home security systems have become smaller, higher tech, and more user friendly than ever. In the past decade alone, home security systems have improved by leaps and bounds, making these technologies more accessible than ever. 

Not only are these new technologies more accessible than ever, they’re also more effective than ever. Security for the home can be approached in a variety of ways, and multi-layered user friendly security strategies may be installed to provide homeowners with complete peace of mind. 

Technologies To Create Your Multi-Layered Security System

Before choosing the layers to go into your multi-layered home security system, it pays to take a closer look at the available technologies out there today. Some security options you may use in your area home include: 

  • Video security systems – Video security systems are sleeker, easier to install, and easier to use than ever before. No longer are bulky video systems complemented by grainy footage, and homeowners can enjoy discreet video systems that capture footage in full HD quality. Video feeds may even be accessed and watched from the comfort of your own smartphone, tablet, or laptop for video monitoring from anywhere in the world. Are you vacationing in Europe but want to check what’s going on back home? Just tap the app on your smartphone and be transported to your own living room. 

  • Security alarm systems – Security alarm systems are still a popular option, and for the simple reason that they work. While today’s alarm systems aren’t the bulky and complicated units of yesteryear, they still function reliably and effectively in protecting your home. You can invest in either basic or more intricate alarm systems, and it all depends on your own particular security wants or needs. Motion detectors, wireless systems, and wired systems are all available to become part of your home security strategy. 

  • Central home monitoring – Central monitoring can protect your home from those disasters you can’t help. Fire, flood, and destruction of this sort can be dangerous and devastating in a matter of seconds. As soon as your system is triggered by any type of disaster, help will be on the way.
