5 Smart Home Security Options For Your Home

door sensor

These are simple sensors that you attach to your doors and windows. Anytime the connection is broken it triggers the sensor. The response range from merely making a noise to alert you, to the smart versions that will alert you where ever you are through and app.


These are a great inexpensive option for the times you are away from home for your interior lights, as it makes it look like there is always someone home. They are also great for keeping those dark corners of your property lit without having to remember to turn the on every night.


If having lights on outside or even inside throughout the night is not your cup of tea then consider using motion sensors. These will only turn the lights on for a short time when ever there is motion within range of the sensors. As with the other sensors there are many options ranging from just turning on the lights to sending out alerts to your smart phone or tablet.

video doorbell

I love this concept. The video doorbell is one the latest things in smart home security. lt can be linked to your smartphone so that you can see who is ringing your doorbell and even communicate with them even when you are not home. This is an awesome deterrent for anyone that might just come cold calling for a home burglary.


Now when it comes to real peace of mind for your home, security cameras are a must. Just seeing one in home can deter someone who is about to do you wrong. But should they not see it or just not care. Then you have them. Today’s cameras have the ability to alert, record and even communicate with the offender through your smart phone or tablet. For those that want that peace of mind without breaking the bank, the camera you want is the Apollo from Amped Wireless.
