How the Internet of Things can help you have a great home security system

It used to be that home security systems meant having an alarm that would go off when somebody broke in, but now these have greatly evolved to automated home security systems with the help of advances in technology, not least of all the Internet of Things.

One of the most important elements in our daily lives is home security. The revolution that has happened to home security over the past few decades is tremendous. It used to be that home security systems meant having an alarm that would go off when somebody broke in, but now these have greatly evolved to automated home security systems with the help of advances in technology, not least of all the Internet of Things.

The combination of the Home security systems and Internet of Things (IoT) means a smart home where electronic devices and appliances are networked together to communicate and exchange data among themselves without the need for any human intervention. The adoption of smart home applications at homes and across different organizations has been significant, largely due to the fact that these systems offer many advantages that help ease our everyday challenges. IoT technology related to devices equipped with cameras, sensors, or actuators gather information for safety purposes. Swipe cards are examples of top-quality devices that show the value of IoT work for Home security.

IoT makes it possible to remotely connect and monitor the environment and real-world objects with the aid of the internet. This makes our homes safer, smarter, and automated. IoT makes it possible to build wireless home security systems that send immediate alerts to home and property owners via the internet. This system is more efficient than every other home security system because whenever there is a trespass on a property, the system sends an alert to the Wi-Fi connected microcontroller which is instantly received by the user on their phone, wherever they are and regardless of whether the phone is connected to the internet. This system makes use of several devices and these devices can malfunction if not properly installed. In case of a malfunction, find out how to repair your Smart Home Devices.

How IoT Will Affect Home Security In The Future

By the year 2020, the world’s population of IoT will be between 20-24 billion. The devices that will make this achievable are the ones that we see everyday, such as home security equipment, appliances, phones, watches, and several other gadgets and home tools. With the rapid rate of technological innovation that we are currently experiencing,  by 2020 we will likely see many more IoT devices.

Right now, devices that provide fingerprint scanning are almost everywhere and very soon eye authentication systems that serve as the only access for a homeowner to enter their home and offices could also be in circulation. We have seen speech recognition systems that enact commands, such as Apple’s Siri on your iPhone, and this technology will continue to take different shapes and work on more devices. There is no end to technological innovation, and our homes are very important to us, so IoT will undoubtedly keep unraveling new ways for us to interact with technology and our homes.

The video doorbell is one of the most popular IoT devices associated with home security. Anytime a visitor rings the doorbell or if the sensor detects movement, the device delivers a live stream to your smartphone. The doorbell is also able to record the footage for you to view it later. This technology makes it easy for you to communicate with every visitor via your smartphone.

BENEFITS OF IoT IN HOME SECURITY

  • Increased security capabilities
  • Your smartphone can be used as your ‘Sensing Assistant’ and all that you need is made available to you on your device.You will get the notification wherever you are.
  • You will be able to sense any movement via the sensor, which makes security cameras unnecessary. 
  • The quick alarm systems and inter-connectivity notifications reduce the chance of crime or theft.
  • Remembering names and taking photos are easily adaptable.
  • Improved performance due to fast-technology.

With this technology come many benefits, but also some risks. One of the key risks is to do with securing devices and the potential for cyber attacks. It is almost impossible for us to do without the internet and wireless-enabled devices both at work and at home. Nevertheless, these connections come with security risks to the device and also the data produced by the device. Find out how to manage your Smart Home devices.

The Internet of Things continues to evolve daily, and this technology has helped home security a great deal. It keeps intruders away and also gives homeowners the full control of their homes. Several smart security systems are now equipped with encrypted hubs that ensure they are protected from being hacked. This system is not only restricted to residences, but commercial offices can also be installed with this technology. As several other new approaches are derived, in years to come, the IoT will probably be the best innovation for Home securities.
