How Security Technology Is Changing in 2019
Crafting a Smarter Home Security Installation
The gifts are unwrapped, the tree is out the door, and the extended family has left sunny Ponte Vedra Beach, FL to face the rest of the winter.
In other words, the holidays are over! But if you think that means the excitement is over for a while, you’re in for a surprise.
Early January is one of the most interesting times of the year for security technology enthusiasts. And even if you’re not a tech head, this year’s CES has plenty of cool and intriguing developments that will affect your home security installation.
From advanced machine learning to expanding integration options, there’s plenty to get excited about.
How will your system change this year? Find out below.
AI Continues to Expand
If we’ve said it before we’ve said it 1,000 times: artificial intelligence is the future of home security.
And this year’s CES did not disappoint, featuring systems that protect your home both internally and externally.
For instance, while much of the AI conversation has been around surveillance footage, some companies are using smart, machine learning technology to protect the growing number of devices that are connected to the internet. By monitoring normal behaviors and learning from regular usage, the AI software can protect your home network by identifying potential threats before they harm your system.
Of course, facial recognition is still the dominant idea in AI for home security. Many companies are releasing their own versions of AI-based cameras, with the ability to spot familiar faces, monitor pets, and other advanced features.
Access Control Makes a Splash
While the idea of access control isn’t new, many companies are making a show of their latest lines of smart locks and video doorbells.
The major trends this year seem to be in retrofit, wireless solutions, and bridging the gap between traditional lock-and-key entryways and keyless digital entry.
Users can generate unique codes for entry, and even unlock the door remotely via the corresponding app.
When you pair a smart lock with a video doorbell, you can enjoy an even greater level of security. Plenty of manufacturers are jumping on board, with HD cameras, an expanded field of vision and more.
Interest in Integration Grows
As the years go by, more and more companies are looking for ways to integrate their systems. This year, many manufacturers are offering new ways to build smart systems based on home security.
From light control to network protections, you can get the most out of your smart security system when you combine controls of everything with a single, intuitive interface.
