So you can protect your home with smart home devices
The Easter holidays have already arrived and whether you stay at home or, above all, you are going to make a getaway, protecting it from friends of others is increasingly important. However, it is not necessary to spend a lot of money to have your home well protected.
Before the proliferation of smart devices, the only way to protect your home was (and still is, in many cases) with an expensive home security system, for a monthly fee, monitored by a security company.
However, nowadays you can protect your home with the most common smart home devices. These they are more affordable than traditional security systems and easier to install and use. In addition, you can supervise everything yourself from your mobile phone.
Then we leave you 3 ways to protect your home:
smart door lock
Something essential to secure the front door of your house is a smart lock. This basically replaces your existing door lock and, like a smart doorbell, connects to your home network via WiFi.
You can control the smart lock with your Amazon Echo or Google Nest speaker or with the lock’s smartphone app.
What is this new lock for? It allows you to enter your home without using physical keys. You just have to approach the front door and the lock will detect your presence, via Bluetooth, and open automatically.
You can too use the app to lock or unlock the door from anywhere in your house, and also when you are away from it. You will be able to check the status of the lock from anywhere and know if it has been forced.
smart security cameras
These are a must if you want to keep your house well protected. Smart security cameras are activated by a motion sensor and send video (and often sound) to the camera’s smartphone app.
You can also choose to activate the camera manually at any time, so you can check what’s happening at your front door.
Whether indoors or outdoors, these they will allow you to see what is happening around your house, without blind spots (many manufacturers sell multi-camera packages for this purpose). Also, you can link all cameras to the same app on your phone and switch views.
smart doorbell with camera
To finish, we include perhaps something more complementary but no less useful for that. If you want to secure the door of your house, it is a great option.
a smart doorbell not only works as a normal doorbellalerting when someone presses your button, too allows you to see who is at your front door before you open it.
You can connect most smart doorbells to a speaker via WiFi, so virtual assistants like Alexa or Google Assistant alert you when someone is at your front door.
Also, if you want, you can reply to whoever is on it even if you’re not home and they’ll never know you’re not there.
