Smart Home Trends to Help Keep Your Home Safe

Are you doing everything you can to keep your home safe and secure? These smart home trends can help ensure that your home stays protected and your mind stays at peace.

Smart Windows and Doors
Whether you’re at home or away, you can know at a glance whether your windows and doors are secure with Pella® Insynctive® technology. This smart home technology for windows and doors is compatible with home automation systems and allows you to monitor locks and control blinds and shades from your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Robot Nannies
Home robots, like Kuri, with its mobile security camera with smart-home control capabilities, upstage intelligent home assistants, like Google Home and Amazon Echo. Because of its mobile design, this device can roam around your home and check on pets, children, babysitters and your belongings when you’re not home.

Outdoor Monitoring
With seven days of free Cloud recordings, Arlo Pro allows you to monitor your home from every angle for extended periods of time. If it senses motion on your property, Arlo Pro sends a smartphone alert to warn you of potential dangers. Rechargeable batteries mean that this weatherproof camera needs no wiring, so it’s easy to position anywhere around your home’s exterior.

Intuitive Lighting
BeOn smart security lighting stays on when the power goes out and turns on automatically at the sound of a doorbell or alarm. If you’re going on a trip, BeOn can replay your typical lighting patterns to give the impression that someone’s home.

Safe Air
Ensure top-notch interior air quality with the Nest Protect – a smoke and carbon monoxide detector that can be monitored from your mobile device. Its modern design features also make it a great alternative to the traditional white plastic smoke detector.

Hacker Protection
According to experts at McAfee Security, the most vulnerable link in any smart home system is the mobile device that controls it. Homeowners who use smart technology should, at the very least, use a passcode and theft recovery program on their phone. A device that features 128-bit encryption or higher is your best defense against hackers.
