A few years ago, home security devices seemed like something only rich Hollywood movie-stars could access. The flashy prices and complicated tech was enough to scare the average person away to just installing an outdoor floodlight and calling it a day. But thanks to high-speed, reliable Wi-Fi and a smartphone in virtually every pocket, it has never been easier (and most cost-efficient) to turn your house into a safe and secure smart home. A smartphone and the security device is truly all it takes now to enjoy 24-7 home monitoring from anywhere in the world.
But what exactly is smart security?
Smart security devices are innovative pieces of internet-connected gadgets which typically include a combination of features such as wireless security cameras, motion detectors, and sensors. All smart security devices are driven by an internet-based central ‘hub’, which communicates and connects wirelessly to your personal smartphones, computers and tablets via an app. Within this app, you can monitor your home by receiving notifications, viewing live security video and audio footage, and in some cases, control your lighting, heating and appliances.
Over a quarter of UK households are equipped with one or more smart security device. But why?
A 2009 study conducted by Rutgers found that, as the number of home security devices increased in an area, the number of robberies too decreased in that area, even for the residents who didn’t own a device themselves. Installing a security device not only protects you, but helps create a safer neighborhood for everyone around you.
Safeguard Your Children And Pets
The amazing video and audio technology featured in many smart security devices opens you up to a whole new world of both external and internal household monitoring. If you’re at work, you can use this feature to ensure your children or pets are safe at home so that you can spend more time focusing on your work, ensured that your loved ones are safe.

The sense of security you gain with a smart security device is possibly the greatest benefit of all. The device gives you an extra layer of protection against any potential burglars or intruders, giving you the confidence of feeling safe so you can resume focusing on what’s really important.
