Making your home safe is very important. The advancements in technology have made the job of a common burglar significantly more difficult, but the bad guys don’t seem to be anywhere near giving up. Equipping your home with proper security gadgets is essential for keeping it safe. Before you is a list of best security gadgets out there.
Equipping your home with proper security gadgets is essential for keeping it safe.
Surveillance equipment is no longer focused solely on offices and high-budget homes. The availability and presence of technology today has made surveillance equipment available at cheap prices. Kibbi, a complete home monitoring system is equipped with a wide-angle HD camera, 1GB worth of recording storage, motion detection, temperature monitoring, night vision and proximity detection function.
This neat little device looks like a smoke detector and, quite frankly, it is one. However, Novi has three more features, making it a solid all-round security gadget. It is equipped with a motion sensor, a 170 degree HD camera and a 90dB siren for scaring the intruders away. You can link the device to your smartphone, and let the Novi app inform you if something is wrong.
August smart lock
We live in a world that cannot be imagined without smartphones – everyone is carrying at least one with them, enjoying the vast world of apps and connectivity. With August smart lock, you no longer need to fumble with your keys – your front door control is assigned to virtual keys, logged into the system. The security benefits of this technological innovation are outlined in being able to track who comes and goes. Additionally, you can use August to grant limited time-based access to friends or guests.
Although there are many quality locks available that are difficult to disable or hack into, destroying a lock means an open door. Haven, unlike other key lock mechanisms, is placed at the bottom of your door. Made with steel and glass-reinforced nylon and aluminum, this security gadget is borderline indestructible – as long as your door is standing, your home is pretty much in the clear. In order to unlock your door, you are assigned a Bluetooth-enabled key fob. Bear in mind that haven is just as strong as your door – if the hinges are disabled, Haven won’t do you much good.
Bolt isn’t a door lock itself, but it works with your existing locks. You can lock and unlock your door through your iOS or Android smartphone. Just to be safe, Bolt works using low energy Bluetooth instead of Internet access. The access can be shared with family members or guests and each usage will trigger a notification sent to your phone, which is why experts at locksmith from Ryde greatly recommend this device. Keep in mind, that you should get a quality lock to combine with Bolt.
If you aim at finding a stylish and less-imposing smart lock than Bolt, Friday will suit your needs. Although it doesn’t offer as much security as Bolt does, it is certainly more aesthetic, available in 4 different finishes – wood, porcelain, bronze and stainless steel. Another benefit of this gadget is the fact that it works on top of your existing lock, allowing you to still use your keys. The option to issue ekeys via Wi-Fi, to allow temporary access to your friends or guests is also available, and each entry will trigger a notification on your smartphone. Additionally, you are able to check the status at any time, through your phone.
Perhaps the most discreet locking device on the list, Kevo, is a Bluetooth-based electronic deadbolt, available in many stores. Kevo can be unlocked via smartphone with Kevo app, or with Kevo Fob. Giving temporary access to friends and guests is also possible, if you use the eKey.
With these technological innovations, you can sleep easier, regardless of whether you are at home, or away. Some offer instant status for your door lock, some offer surveillance and alarms, while others use brute force for securing your home. Each one on the list is a valid security measure, not to be disregarded.
