There is no greater way to advocate the safety of both your home and business than through effective security measures. Whether you are protecting your family or a great investment, there are three growing security trends in 2015 that will open your eyes to a more effective, easy to manage way of monitoring and securing your home: Camera-based security, increased reliance on smartphone security, and the manufacturer’s emphasis on the user experience.
Older security models were developed around simple sound notification. If someone broke into your home or business you were alerted to the incident by way of a bell or an alarm but in all actuality, you had no idea how or what happened. Although alarm systems have the capability of simultaneously notifying the police department; if the culprit was not caught in the act there is still lack of knowledge and evidence to detail the crime. Generally, a suspect is only identified and may be apprehended when great detective guesswork is at hand. In many cases, the assailant is never found. Today’s technology affords us the advantage of visual imagery to accompany any audio notification.
Camera-based security systems help you keep an eye on your home and property. Being proactive about the happenings within your home or business is the key factor in solving and preventing negative circumstances. Beyond security surveillance, camera-based systems give you peace of mind by helping you keep an eye on your kids when they are home with a caregiver or alone after school. Business owners can keep an eye on their employees when they are out of the office. As a business owner, this gives you more time to work in the field while your employees maintain the office.
Increased Reliance on Smart Phone Security
Another trending security feature for 2015 is the use of smart phones with modern security systems. It was a great feat when security systems became visual and digital. With the right equipment set-up in your home or office, you were able to view anything within recording distance of your cameras. If viewing was not an immediate option, your only option was the VHS recordings created for later screening. However, today’s technology links your cell phone (via a cellular communicator) to your home or business monitoring and control system providing unlimited access to your home at any time.
Smartphone security surveillance and maintenance creates the ultimate control panel for your alarm system. Smart phones are pocket size and convenient. Smart phone security control allows you to arm and disarm the system from anywhere as well as live video access of your home or business through your mobile device. Other features include climate control and automatic programming of its features. The sky is the limit with this security upgrade.
Manufacturer Emphasis On User Experience
The capability of protecting your family, home and business has never been more effective and user friendly. Security manufacturers specifically craft these systems to work in conjunction with smart phones, iPads, tablets and other devices. Manufacturers understand the importance of creating systems that are complex enough to effectively resolve all consumer requirements and needs, yet simple enough not to convolute the user experience. The ability to monitor your home from anywhere provides a sense of security that is unparalleled.
