Home Security Alarms Are Improving in These 4 Ways in 2018
Advanced technology is revolutionizing security alarm systems for both residential and commercial sectors. New technology and security innovations are being introduced on a regular basis and with that much involvement of technology, your home can now be protected up to the highest standards which weren’t possible before.
Following are 4 ways home security alarms are improving in 2018:
1. Smart Video Surveillance
CCTV camera systems can now record and send high-definition video in real-time. Their recorded footage can be remotely accessed anytime you want, providing you with a constant video stream of your home. Furthermore, you can also control the cameras remotely in order to focus on a specific location as well as program them to record only when a significant movement is detected.
Apart from this, the latest video surveillance technologies also allow you to control what you can see when you are away from home. It can show you the latest footage recorded from the camera, when the dog walker showed up etc., as well as let you know if your kids arrived home safely. It can even remind you if you leave any of your critical doors open on your way out. Hence, enhancing your home’s security in the best possible way.
2. Detection of Unusual Patterns
You may expect somebody to visit your home once a day, for example a mid-day dog walker, but it would be unusual if someone enters your home multiple times within a single day. The new security alarm features detect such unusual patterns and activities and prompt you to take actions such as viewing a webcam or calling a neighbor.
3. Detailed Audit Logs
Almost all home security systems nowadays record the footage with a timestamp and log it so you can review it later if required. It is highly beneficial in case a theft or another unexpected activity is discovered after it has occurred as the audit logs for motion sensors will allow you to review them and determine when the incident occurred.
4. Updates to Basic Technology
A lot of fundamental home alarm system features have been upgraded thanks to the latest technology. The basic motion sensors as well as door and window sensors are now more reliable and accurate than ever before. Additionally, there are now more types of useful sensors available that you can integrate into your home alarm system and enhance its overall effectiveness. These sensors include humidity and temperature sensors that can alert you in case of fire or flood conditions, tamper-sensitive sensors that can alert you if somebody tries to access your control panel or a window breaks, pet-friendly motion detectors that can differentiate between the family dog and an intruder, etc.
In conclusion, the latest technologies in 2018 have significantly improved the effectiveness of home security alarms. While many homeowners only require the basics of security such as surveillance cameras, security lighting and alarms, some may get their much needed peace of mind by integrating advanced features into their security systems. It all depends on your needs and budget; however, you cannot deny the improvements new technologies have introduced recently.
