IoT and the Future of Home Security
Home security will pave the way for the mainstream adoption of IoT devices. The logic is simple: Every person values their security, and IoT is giving them the means in an innovative, low-cost way. IoT (or, internet of things) is essentially the automation of everyday items and is incredibly valuable when you think about it in the home security market.
A multitude of platforms allow you to automate your home security inside and out and have it all interconnected. Think of your motion lights triggering an outside security camera or any unexpected noise inside your house alerting a hub and either one sending an alert to your smart phone. There as many home automation devices as you can imagine and the best part is they are easy to set up and relatively low-cost.
Most new devices to the market run off WiFi, so you can set them up yourself without having to hardwire them in to your home like traditional security systems. You can even get an entire smart home security system for under $200 in some cases.
With all these reasons, it’s pretty clear why IoT is the future of home security. You are granted more control and more access to your home security at a lower cost and easier set-up allowing you to truly protect what matters most.
