A survey in 2012 found that 60% of burglars skip a home if it has an automated home security system. Those who entered unawares fled as soon as they realized there was a home security device installed to alert the homeowners and authorities.
Sensors and smart devices work wonders to protect your home when you’re not around. If you have children with a nanny, ailing seniors or a sick pet at home, modern technology allows you to keep an eye on them when you are not around.
Electronic home security devices discreetly monitor activity patterns and alert you to emergencies, such as health issues or burglary, before they worsen so you can take action right away. The devices collect data about regular behavioural patterns over several days and weeks and is quick to pick up any change as soon as they sense it, thanks to advanced technology. For instance, if a senior in your home leaves the bed at a certain time and has their medication at a prescribed time, the security device will alert you in the event of an unexpected delay so you can rush in and check up on them.
The tools empower you with greater control when you are away, so you enjoy greater peace of mind. If your parents live independently, you can install the devices in their home so you can keep an eye on them remotely.
