Since society evolved from the nomads to fixed location homes human beings, have created increasingly innovative ways to protect their property. The domestication of wolves into both beloved family pets and fierce security guards shows us that keeping our families and homes safe has been a priority for thousands of years.
Today keeping our homes secure has become an industry. With companies that monitor your home 24 hours a day to smart home devices that let you manage your security using, Smart door locks and smartphone apps, keeping your family and home safe has never been easier. While many of us keep a handgun in our nightstand, now we also have an iPhone to alert us if a window or door has been comprised by someone trying to enter our home, which gives us time to contact authorities and protect our families.
In just a few years smart home security devices like the Doorbell Camera are already changing the way we protect our homes and families. And as this industry continues to find new ways and technology to keep us safe we have a lot to look forward to in the future. We can look for improvements in a variety of technologies including immersive security and video cameras, motion and sound detectors and closed private networks in homes to keep smart home security devices more secure.
Here are some futuristic smart home security devices that are closer to reality than you think.
If you are unfamiliar with geofencing, it’s not for your yard. Geofencing uses your smartphone to know where you are. It will also tell you if anything has been moved or moves in your house when you aren’t there. It will know when you aren’t home without you telling it, and employ motion sensors; then when you are home, it will disable them. So if you often forget to set the security system before you leave, geofencing has your back.
Technology is getting good at getting to know you. Learning technology in the future will allow your security system to learn more about you, and your pets. For instance, if you cat knocks things off shelves when you are away, your smart home security system will recognize the sound of the cat. Once it knows the cat's patterns, it won’t alert authorities when it hears your valuables breaking.
What was once science fiction is now becoming a reality, and we cannot wait to see what the future brings.
