Keeping up with trends in home security

Nov / 12 / 2018

If you’re being chased by the world, the one place that should give you shelter from pursuit should be your home. The home is your safest haven. Hence, there is a need for securing your home, its valuables and loved ones with a security system.

Home security systems, are networks of integrated electronic devices working together with a central control panel to protect against burglars and other potential home intruders. Say goodbye to guard dogs and security guards who sleep on-duty.

A typical modern home security system now includes:

A control panel, which is the primary controller of a home’s security system

Door and window sensors

Motion sensors, both interior, and exterior

Wired or wireless security cameras

A high-decibel siren or alarm

Electric Fences

More modern gadgets like motion sensors, retina scanners, and facial recognition systems are being produced and introduced to secure homes for families with costs that are worth it. Here is a few cutting edge security technology to assist in your decision making.


Abode has one of the easiest (and most beautiful) starter kits we’ve seen in a home security system. The kit includes a hub device, door sensor, motion sensor, and key fob for easier entry. Set up these wireless devices where you need them, download the app to monitor for alerts, and add more Abode devices like cameras as needed. The monitoring services are also pleasantly versatile, with three-day, seven-day, and monthly options you can pick from to save money.


SimpliSafe is a home security hub that comes with alarm monitoring, sirens, and a number of sensors to detect movement, flooding, fires, and many other natural disasters. Guess you are figuring out the “simpli” part of the system? There’s really only one device, plus a security code keypad you can use. You can also buy an additional smart cam, but the system is based on that sensor-loaded hub. This makes installation as easy as picking a table to put it on, and keeps associated costs down, making this an ideal option for people who want to save money.
