Perhaps one of the most obvious pieces of technology you can use to help protect your home is a surveillance camera.
Cameras help capture events as they’re happening, so you’ll have a record of anything that goes wrong.
You may already know that your system can send you push notifications if they detect movement in the area.
But did you know that your cameras can actually recognize faces, and determine the likelihood that something will go wrong?
Thanks to artificial intelligence software, your system doesn’t have to remain reactionary. It can make judgements about events and inform the rest of your integrated technology to take action.
If your cameras are integrated with your smart locks, you can remain even safer.
Once they detect something is wrong, every entryway in your home can immediately lock down.
And smart locks do more than just secure your spaces electronically. You can use biometric technology to make your home even safer.
Biometrics use parts of your body – like your fingerprint or retina – as keys.
That means your home will only open to authorized users, and you never have to worry about losing a key or card again.
Plus, it keeps track of who enters and leaves at all times, so you’ll know when your kids get home from school instantly.
Mockupancy and Geofences
The beauty of smart home automation is that it’s mostly hands-free. That means you shouldn’t have to worry about arming your system each time you go out.
A geofence can help with that. It tracks your global position via your smartphone, so when you pass by a pre-determined threshold your system automatically springs into action.
Smart locks secure your doors, your surveillance system activates and your home enters an “away” or “mockupancy” mode.
Mockupancy means your lights, audio system and other gear can turn on and off throughout each room of your home in a realistic way, to make it look like someone is inside at all times.
If your home looks occupied, it’s far less likely to be targeted.
