Did you know that there are almost three burglaries every minute? Over half of all burglaries happen during daylight hours.

You want to make sure your home is safe, and you want to stay up-to-date with the latest technology in security systems. Keep reading, and we will guide you through updating or designing your smart home using the latest advances in smart home security systems.

The Whole Package

When shopping for home security technology, you want to see what's included in the system. You also want to consider what's needed for your home and how much space you want to cover with security.

Some systems include indoor and outdoor security with cameras, alarms, and motion sensors. There are multiple types of security cameras, and you will want to find the one that's right for your home.

There are also separate smart home devices that can link up to your smart home security. There has been a rise in smart home devices that you can activate by your voice.

For example, some systems will link to your home technology, such as an Amazon Alexa or Google Home. You can connect these systems to your security, enhancing your smart home.

This allows you to turn on and off or voice command your security system with your device. It's as easy as asking Alexa for the weather or playing music on your Google Home.

Updates In Smart Home Security Systems

The most significant update in smart home security is that there are systems where everything can be controlled in one app, all from your phone. The app would allow you to turn it on and off, see video footage, and link to other devices in your home.

Typically now, there is also a touchscreen monitor that you can set up in your home near the door that can also control your security system. You will be able to see who's at your front door and unlock it from the device.

These updates make security feel seamless and user-friendly. With the push of a button on your phone, you will feel comfortable that your home and family are safe.

Other parts of your home that this touchscreen can control include your heating and cooling system and the lighting in your house. Being able to handle everything from these devices makes your life and your family's easier.

You can easily set up the system, so your kids, family, and babysitters are all able to use it. Advances in technology only continue to help with home security.

Set Up Your Smart Home Security

Now that you know all of the advancements in smart home security systems, you're ready to set up your home with the new technology.

Security systems can sync up with your smart home devices so that you can control everything by voice, an app on your phone, and a touchscreen system set up on your wall.
