Home security systems used to be simple to install and control. Typically, your system included your standard-issue locks and deadbolts on your doors, along with an alarm system to monitor your doors and windows. If an intruder entered your home, an alarm would activate, and the authorities would be notified. A system like this is fine for what it is, but smart technology allows for much more advanced security and surveillance solutions. Smart video doorbells and locks give you much greater control over who can access your home. They also provide more information on what’s happening inside the house. Surveillance cameras have also come a long way in recent years, making it easy to install a network of cameras and sensors to keep an eye on every square inch of your property.
