Below are a few of the latest gadgets available for those looking to add extra home security protection in the form of smart automation technology.
August Smart Lock
Essentially, the August Smart Lock works with a standard deadbolt, allowing your smartphone to control all entry to your home at any time. It also includes a range of customization options to allow you to limit who and when people have access.
The door can be locked or unlocked and virtual keys can be created for the babysitter, the dog walker and out of town guests conveniently from your smartphone. Access can be restricted to specific times as well. The August app also allows you to see who comes and goes live as it happens. The device can be programmed to unlock as you approach and lock upon exiting the home as well.
August Doorbell Cam
With this new piece of technology, residents are notified when the doorbell it is rung via smartphone, regardless of where you are. It includes motion detection, so even if the person doesn’t ring your bell, you’ll know they are at your doorstep immediately. You can then see and speak with the person first, without opening the door and potentially risking you or your families safety.
The August Doorbell Cam also has the functionality to remotely unlock the August Smart Lock for welcome guests.
This is a home security essential offering round-the-clock 1080p HD access to the happenings inside your home. It works as a surveillance system, motion sensor alert, and two-way speaker. The Nest Cam technology allows normal sound and movement to be ignored, while recognizing and alerting you via smartphone when something out of the ordinary occurs.
The live video feed can be accessed while you are away to offer peace of mind which can be used as a baby monitor as well. The convenient night vision offers a clear view when it’s dark, while the zoom feature lets you take a closer look at any specific areas if needed. The camera provides a 130 degree view, so more can be seen.
Nest Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm
Nest Protect Alarm detects smoke and carbon monoxide levels with precise accuracy, automatically tests itself, and sends an alert to your smartphone when environmental dangers such as a house fire occur. The alarm can be turned off remotely from your smartphone in the case of a false alarm.
