Six Smart Technologies to Keep You and Your Home Safe

Do you rely on an ordinary deadbolt lock, squint through a front door peephole and struggle to remember a long passcode to unlock your phone? It may be time to explore new technologies that can make it a snap to secure your life and home.

Security technology has developed rapidly, merging with smart technology to give consumers on almost any budget the ability to safeguard their devices, homes, and lives seamlessly.

Some smart technologies, like biometrics, make it easier for you to access your property while helping to keep others out. And many smart devices alert you immediately—no matter where you are—when there’s a problem at home.

The cost of adding sensing and communication technology to consumer devices is falling, making smart technology both more affordable and more available. Smart home stats show that 57 percent of Americans say that smart home products save them an average of 30 minutes a day and almost $100 a month.

Security is the leading reason consumers are embracing smart technology for their homes. In fact, three out of five consumers say they buy smart home products because they want to be able to monitor their home from their smartphone. “Security is top of people’s minds right now,” and that’s especially true for those in the 50+ age bracket, says Barry Daoust, a home technology expert and founder of Smarthomes.us, a company that installs smart-home systems.

Fortunately, savvy consumers have an array of home security options, from hiring a pro to install a comprehensive smart-home system to buying individual high-tech products or simply using technology that comes built into most smartphones.

Here are six smart security technologies to help keep you secure. Read More
