Here’s the Latest in Smart Home Security

We’ve all heard the saying “safety first,” and for many wealthy homeowners that rings true. Home security is a top priority, and in recent years, the way in which we keep our loved ones safe has changed dramatically. Gone are the days of rushing out the door while your hardwired security system counts down.

A new era of smart home technology brings with it doorbell cams, discerning motion sensors, and smart locks to deliver peace of mind for you and your family. These are the latest smart home security systems to keep a watchful eye on your residence.

Nest Secure
Monitored from your smartphone, Nest Secure is a comprehensive security system that integrates with Google Assistant. The system can be armed by tapping your key fob on the main hub device on your way out the door and motion detectors will alert your phone if there’s any activity while you’re gone. Outdoor cameras provide the first layer of defense, and for an extra layer of protection, you can opt for professional monitoring from Brinks Home Security.

The established name in home security has modernized with the ADT Pulse App, which allows you to take control of security and automation systems over your smartphone. Compatible with Alexa, Amazon’s voice control assistant, all you have to do is say the words to lock the doors and arm the system while you’re home.

SimpliSafe provides 24/7 alarm monitoring to alert you of any unwanted surprises, from intruders to natural disasters. With motion sensors that differentiate between people and pets, this intuitive engineering runs on a built-in cellular connection reinforced with WiFi and power outage protection, so you can rest assured.

Controlled using a wall-mounted touchscreen or on your smartphone when you’re on the move, Vivint delivers a high-touch level of security, from infrared night vision cameras to smart locks that you can control from anywhere in the world. The touchscreen also integrates with the rest of your smart home technology, like voice assistants, Nest thermostats and Phillips Hue lighting.
