Today you live in a smart home, and your home is being made capable of being able to do a lot of automated tasks. One of the areas of interest that is becoming popular is improved home security. Since the technology and processing power exists to do some pretty amazing things with the security of your home, this makes it possible for a home owner to get a lot of security tweaks for an ever-reducing cost. With that in mind, the following are a few areas of automation that will benefit you and your family.
You left your smart home and were a good way down the road before you remembered you forgot to arm your home alarm. While most people would be fuming by realizing this and complaining about the hassle of having to turn around to fix it, you calmly pull out your smart phone and use your onboard app to arm your alarm system by remote. The added benefit of not having to go back to do this manually means that you will have saved a ton of time and gas in the process that would have been wasted otherwise.
Learning Your Schedule
One of the great aspects of technology-based security upgrades for a home is that more and more security devices are able to learn and adapt to your schedule. If you regularly come in late at night, your home can prepare for your arrival by turning on the lights for you. This is an important home security measure, because you do not have to get out of your car in the darkness anymore and fumble for the right key. Rather, your security lighting is ready to go as you pull into the driveway and will fire up when you get into a close enough proximity to your home. The lighting that comes on for you will illuminate your path to the front door.
Monitoring Your Perimeter
While it is nice to have cameras watching everything that goes on outside your dwelling, you can set your home security system up to alert your smartphone any time someone gets too close to your home. You can access any camera by remote and watch a real time feed of the kind of activity going on outside. This also gives you the advantage of taking a solid look around your smart home for intruders before leaving your house.

Increased Home Security
Internet surveillance cameras allow you to monitor your home from anywhere, smart locks and remote light controls give you control over your home when you’re not physically there. Being able to turn lights on at random times or check in on interior or exterior from a different location can significantly increase the security of your home.

We’ve all done it: turned the air conditioning on full blast, then left the house without remembering to turn it down. But what if you could change the temperature of your home from far away? Not only do smart automation devices give you the power to do just that, but many learn your schedule and habits, and optimize functions to reduce unnecessary energy use. Over time, the money you’ll save on your heating and cooling bills will fully cover the cost of a smart thermostat – and then some!
