Security is one of the biggest concerns in this chaotic world of aggravating crimes. As we come across several nerve-racking tragedies of housebreaks daily, we must increase our home security for our protection.
Over the years, we have seen criminals adapt to the new tech and use it to make unique robberies. Therefore, we need to remain two steps ahead of the housebreakers. And to do that, we need to use modern innovative technology that makes it impossible for anyone to intrude into your house without your permission.
The Need for Modern Technology
In 2021, we have entirely digitized most of the western world. Modern technology hasn’t left a single spot empty. It has crawled its way into every aspect of life, ranging from farming to cleaning! Hence, it is only natural that technology is also used for our protection and safety.
In fact, Market Research Future expects the security system industry to reach $44.8 billion worldwide. Nowadays, a considerable proportion of houses are equipped with smart home technology. While technology has helped make our homes much secure, it is still arguable whether the innovation actually helps increase our security or become the reason we’re more unsafe now than ever!
The reason behind this debate is that in the last few years, there have been game-changing breakthroughs. Unfortunately, to our dismay, burglars are making more of this technological development than we are. However, with every clever step that a burglar takes to beat this innovation, the better ideas the expert engineers come up with to take the home security game one level up.
Amid this race of who can outsmart the other, one thing’s guaranteed: you stand a better chance at protecting yourself against an intruder with the help of a security system installed than you do without one. With that said, here are some of the latest trends in home security tech that will help you sleep peacefully at night.
Cybersecurity for Smart Homes
With almost every single house going smart, cybersecurity remains our number one concern. The Security Business Magazine stated that cybersecurity is the most ground-breaking technology out of all novel innovations.
Cybersecurity covers a wide variety of tech, all with the same purpose of keeping digital malware away from your system. In 2021, the latest cybersecurity software has hit the market, and it would be wise to install it on your system.
Additionally, it governs the security cameras, the microphones, and all the connected devices. If your cybersecurity is weak, then all your house’s data is at risk. Hence, you should use new firewalls and secure connections to prevent hackers from stealing your data.
Next-Gen Alarm Systems
Almost all houses already have alarms in their households. However, the ancient alarms stand no chance against the 21st-century burglars. Therefore, it is time that you get that alarm system repair done. Upgrade the preexisting one, or install a new one.
New burglar alarms featuring the latest tech are impossible to fool. They come with mobile integration, which enables you to monitor your entire house from your smartphone.
Moreover, they are virtually impossible to break, and you can rest assured that if anyone tries to invade your property, you will get an immediate alert.
Making Use of Sensors and Detectors
There are numerous types of sensors and detectors that people used commercially to protect their businesses. However, with technological advancement, those high-scale items have hit the home security system market.
Advanced motion sensors can catch even the slightest of movements. Furthermore, audio sensors are also introduced with the quality of detecting sounds with a minute amplitude. Both the detectors combined make all physical breaches obstinate.
Besides, apart from the usual sensors, engineers have scaled-down RADAR security systems for commercial use. However, we still have to wait for a year or two before RADAR systems would be made available for use in our houses.
High-Resolution CCTV Cameras
You must have heard of a case where after a robbery, the CCTV footage checked by the police appeared blur and grainy. That is because the average CCTV camera used to come with a 720p resolution, which turned grainy when we zoomed in. The police are often unable to catch the culprits because of the low-quality CCTV footage.
Therefore, engineers devised cameras that are Ultra 4K HD. These advanced cameras can zoom in to give a clear picture of the robbers, their license plates, or any other clue that can be used to catch them.
Engineers of security system technology are making breakthroughs daily. Hence, our job is to make full use of the innovations built solely for our protection.
Even the new systems cannot last very long as burglars find ways to tamper with them. Therefore, the best idea is to keep all the latest security trends into account to ensure your house and family’s maximum protection. We need to install the latest systems and upgrade them regularly so that we are two steps ahead of the criminals at all times.
