Five of the latest smart security solutions

SmartHome security is more affordable than ever

SmartHome security is more affordable than ever

Modern technology is a wonderful thing – every day, it seems, some revolutionary new gadget is being developed to help make our lives a little easier. The same is true for smart security solutions, and here we share just a few of the innovations that can enhance your home’s security (and be managed at the touch of a button).

1. Automated lighting systems

Imagine you’re about to go on holiday. You’ve packed your bags and you’re ready to go, but you can’t help worrying about your home’s security. Fear not! You can enhance your home’s security using an app to turn your lights on and off, mimicking your day-to-day patterns of behaviour. As part of a smart-home security system, automated lighting is an effective deterrent that should discourage most intruders.

2. Motion-detecting alarms

Motion detectors are increasingly sensitive and versatile to your needs – you can even get motion sensors that turn on your lights as you walk through your house! But from a security perspective, alarm systems have come on leaps and bounds in recent years. ‘Smart’ has a two-pronged meaning here: an effective system relies on well-positioned sensors (including coverage of windows and doors), as well as the technology that makes the system so responsive. We have installed a number of motion-detecting alarms in Guildford recently.

3. Wireless CCTV

Just as your smartphone connects to your Wi-Fi, you can set up your security camera surveillance, indoors and outdoors, to connect to your wireless internet service. Options vary for storing the camera data, but one major benefit is the potential to store your camera data in the cloud, which means you can access the footage for longer and avoid the risk of recording over older data.

4. Keyless locks, or ‘smart locks’

If you’re more likely to lose your keys than your phone, this could be the perfect solution for you – a keyless entry system that uses a code or smartphone to access your home. Smart locks can be programmed in lots of different ways to suit you and your family – you can even programme them to unlock the doors if the smoke alarm goes off! Which takes us neatly to our final point…

5. The smart-home ecosystem

This is more of a concept than a specific innovation, perhaps, but the beauty of smart-home technology is that it is always evolving and becoming more connective, allowing different aspects of your security system to interact. Some systems can even learn from your behaviour, so over time they adapt how they work to suit your requirements – adjusting just like an ecosystem responding to local changes.

At Angel Security, we work hard to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to evolving technologies, and we can recommend smart-home solutions to suit you. Smart-home solutions also work effectively for businesses and large organisations, so the sky’s the limit when it comes to designing a smart security system for your needs.
