National Home Security Month – Week 5, Future Home SecurityOctober 28, 2014
The last week of this years National Home Security Month looks into the future, and the devices that will be used to drive down burglaries in the next few years. As homes and people become more connected via the internet so is security!
Not a new method to combat crime, but CCTV has now become cheap enough to install at home. With the advances in internet connection speeds and the progression of smart phones, people can now monitor their home CCTV while they are aware from the house, and even whilst on holiday abroad. Motion sensors built into small CCTV cameras, allow them to record only when movement is detected, this reduces the about of data that is captured and also allows for a remote signal to be sent to a smart device.
Digital Door Viewers
Door viewers, that allow a caller to be identified before the door is opened, have been common home security devices for some time now. However, as technology has improved so have door viewers! An external camera and internal screen, both of which are battery powered, are used to view the caller at a front door, devices that include internal memory can be used to store images captured by the external camera
