Make 2021 your safest year ever with the latest smart home security solutions
When was the last time you updated your Virginia Beach home security and surveillance devices? Home security technology is advancing year-over-year, and smart security devices benefit from proactive features that let you know immediately when something is amiss at home.
If you haven’t updated your systems recently, you may be missing out on sophisticated smart features that deliver better protection for your home and property. Keep reading to learn three smart devices you need in 2021.
Security cameras are a must-have for guarding your home’s interiors and exterior. Many of today’s sophisticated smart models come with features like high-resolution video, night vision, and motion detection sensors. Some advanced security cameras have AI technology that can identify and differentiate between people, animals, and cars, resulting in fewer false alarms and notifications for stray cats wandering through the yard.
Surveillance cameras help you have peace of mind all day long because you can access live-stream or recorded video footage whenever you want using your smartphone or touchscreen tablet. When your camera alerts you to a person appearing in camera range, you can instantly check the footage to see what’s happening and assess the situation.
Video doorbell technology has advanced tremendously over the past several years, and the new Control4 Chime is a security force to be reckoned with. Chime’s compact and discreet packaging contains a high-definition camera, two-way audio, low-light vision, and a 180° range of view. Chime also allows you to create five custom motion zones that give you better control over the areas you want to monitor.
Chime makes sure you know who’s approaching your home, whether you’re inside or away. When someone steps into a motion zone, Chime will send a picture snapshot to your smartphone or start a video recording. You can communicate with whoever’s at the door using two-way audio. And if something happens while you’re away on vacation, Chime has you covered — you can access a history of seven days of snapshots and video recordings.
Smart Door Locks
Smart door locks replace manual house keys with secure passcodes, keycards, or even biometric scans. Instead of giving out multiple copies of your house keys to babysitters, housekeepers, and dog walkers, give visitors a unique passcode to access your home. Your smart lock will send you a notification when someone uses a passcode so that you can keep track of comings and goings.
If you’re at work and suddenly panic, wondering if you forgot to lock the front door, pull out your smartphone and remotely lock it. It works the other way, too — if your children forget their passcodes, remotely unlock the doors so that they can come inside after school.
