Smart security systems are designed to provide a higher level of security than traditional security systems at a much lower cost. With features like remote monitoring, motion sensors, and video cameras you can take charge of the security of your surroundings and save money at the same time. These systems can be added to a smart home system where virtually every aspect of your home can be monitored for efficiency, convenience and comfort.
With a smart security system, you can view live video footage of your home from anywhere in the world using your smartphone or other networked device. This can provide peace of mind when you're away from home, as you can check on your home at any time and receive alerts if something is amiss. Many of these systems store the video in the cloud so that they can be used in police investigations. Many smart security systems also include night vision, which allows the cameras to see in low-light conditions.
Sensors can detect movement in and around your home and, when triggered, the system will send an alert to your smartphone, allowing you to take appropriate action. Some smart security systems can even distinguish between humans and animals, reducing the number of false alarms.
Smart locks can eliminate the need for traditional keys while providing increased flexibilty and security. Many can be programmed with a special number (key) to allow one time access for people such as repairmen and deliveries. Some can incorporate biometrics such as fingerprints and facial recognition for enhanced protection.
One of the main advantages of smart security systems is that they allow you to monitor your home remotely. Whether it is intruders, fires, flooding, etc. you can have peace of mind while knowing that the technology is always watching your precious home.
Another big advantage is in money savings from your insurance premiums as most insurance companies have lower rates for home that are protected by smart security systems.
The latest smart home technology uses artificial intelligence(AI) and machine learning(ML) to spot abnormalities in the home environment. When combined with facial recognition tools, this can be a very powerful addition to your home security.
Biometrics, the measurement and analysis of unique physical or behavioral characteristics such as fingerprint or voice patterns, is being integrated into many components to add convenience while maintaining the high level of security.
When compared to traditional monitored security systems, the cost of smart security systems is extremely low. With traditional systems, you would pay to have a professional install, test, and monitor your system. This required you to pay a monthly fee that could be hundrteds of dollars but professional monitoring along with the associated fees are eliminated with these systems. These new systems can range in price from $100 to thousands of dollars depending on the number and typoe of sensors and advanced features. These costs can usually be recovered quickly through insurance premium savings.
