Make Your Home More Secure with These 5 Gadgets

To ensure your home stays safe, this blog highlights some of the smart home security measures you can use. From smart locks to smart doorbells, these are the best ways you and your home can stay safe.

We have to say it, but hacking happens. While insurance may cover your gadgets, secure your home to prevent theft. So we suggest you grab these 5 gadgets that make your home more secure.

1. Smart Home Hub

Smart home devices are useful for several reasons, including their security value. If you’re connected to your existing security system, your Amazon Echo, Sonos One, or Google Nest can make your home more secure.

Part of the reason is simplicity. When you can just ask Alexa to turn on the alarm, you’re less likely to forget to arm the house.

It also helps to control your smart home when you are away, making it seem like someone is home. Burglars are less likely to target homes that are currently occupied.

2. Smart Lock

Do you trust your front door lock? The answer is probably not. We all know how easily traditional locks can be picked or broken.

Unfortunately, adding an additional security gate may not be the solution. However, using smart locks is a good alternative.

While some smart locks are key-operated, they also require your phone, code, fingerprint, or key fob to unlock. There’s no foolproof way to keep your home safe, but smart locks are much better at it than the traditional kind.

3. Smart security cameras

If you don’t have security cameras set up, you should get them right away. The mere presence of video cameras can be a huge deterrent to would-be thieves.

Going for a smart camera allows you to access it from your phone wherever you are. You don’t have to wonder what’s going on in your empty house. You just need to open the app on your phone.

4. Lighting Systems

As mentioned, the appearance of someone being home can be a huge deterrent, which is why playing Echo music or the radio can help keep your home safe. It’s the same with lighting.

A dark house in the evening is obviously empty, but you don’t have to leave all your lights on and increase your electricity bill. Instead, lighting that you can program or control remotely can create a convincing illusion.

5. Smart doorbells

It’s not safe to open the door for anyone, but you don’t need to peek through a peephole to see who’s there. Instead, opt for a smart doorbell.

This provides a digital peephole, as it has a camera with audio and video. You can also answer remotely to make it seem like someone is home.

Burglars may press the doorbell to see if anyone is home. If no one answers, they continue to break in. If you answer your phone, they won’t know the difference.

The above gadgets will make your home more secure. Don’t leave your home security at risk. Burglary is still very common but often preventable.
