Many new trends have evolved in home security systems over the past several years as technology in general has changed, improved and dropped in price. These changes in technology have allowed the use of home security systems to expand beyond deterring crime but have led to security systems being used for a variety of other purposes.
Wireless Home Security. The change toward wireless home security systems is one such trend and the most obvious. Wireless technology allows for home security systems to be installed easily, without drilling holes in the walls and running wires through conduits in the wall. Furthermore, wireless technology has improved home security systems by allowing more monitoring points around the home that are safe from being cut or tampered with.
Video Technology. Other trends include the addition and improvement of camera and video technology, self-monitoring and smart homes. With the use of a computer or smart phone quickly look at the interior or exterior of your home to identify if children have arrived home safely or if someone is outside your home that may present risk. Video cameras are now technologically better and cheaper than ever. Today's cheaper camera prices make it affordable to place real-time HD cameras around your home. These cameras can now record video directly to a DVR rather than to tape or to the hard drive of your control panel.
Self Monitoring. Improvements in mobile technology, such as smart phones, laptops and tablets, have also contributed to another trend in home security systems: self-monitoring. With this option, your home security system notifies you, when the alarm has been triggered. It is then your responsibility to respond and call for help. You can use your mobile device to do a variety of monitoring tasks including enabling or disabling your alarm system, receiving video feed from your home's security cameras and receiving text messages whenever your alarm has been triggered.
Home Automation. Home automation is another trend in home security. This allows the homeowner to choose options with the home security system to run a variety of other systems in the house. Home security systems with a home automation option can monitor and manage the thermostat, activate humidity controls, interface with certain appliances, activate or deactivate specific electrical outlets and lights, and control home entertainment centers. Imagine the convenience of turning on the oven to preheat on your way home from work saving you significant time to help get you and your family to the next activity on time - home automation systems can bring efficiency to your every day life.
Homeowners now have many options to choose from in purchasing and monitoring a home security system to help make their homes safe and run more efficiently.
