Home security trends are becoming more sophisticated every year. Here are some of the top trends in home automation & security systems that can help keep you and your family safe.


Making homes ‘smart’ is a growing trend that has gone from button-press security systems to controlling and observing your home from anywhere.

Some of the incredible benefits of home automation include:

  • Maximizes home security
  • Gives you remote access to heating/cooling systems, intercoms and multimedia devices for ultimate convenience
  • Allows for a more energy-efficient home
  • Increases the market value of your home

Top Trends in Home Automation

While home automation is primarily used to upgrade a home security system and ensure that you and your family are kept safe, the benefits of this technology extend far beyond simple security.

Some of the latest security & non-security trends in home automation include:

 

1. Home Security Cameras

Given the rising crime rate in Calgary, home security has become a huge concern. IP surveillance cameras are an affordable and efficient method of deterring and/or apprehending burglars.

These digital video cameras can send and receive information about your home via a network or the internet, allowing you to keep an eye on your property, children and/or pets from any location.

Some of the benefits of IP cameras include:

  • Can be installed indoors and outdoors
  • High image quality
  • Gives you remote accessibility to your home
  • Can be tailored to fit your unique home security needs

 

2. Automated Door Locks

Incredible new home security technology has transformed the traditional door lock into a smart lock - a device that allows you to open and close your door without a key. This can have many security & non-security benefits for your home including:

  • No more lost keys
  • No more lockouts
  • Greater control over who is coming in and out of your home
  • Update your access code or change your PIN in case of emergencies
  • They are pick-proof

 

3. Programmable Smart Thermostats

For homeowners, energy consumption is a big deal. The more power and energy you use, the higher your electric bill is going to be. Smart thermostats can help alleviate this problem by offering you more control over your home’s temperature and climate.

This home automation product acts as the gateway to your central heating system and can provide many benefits including:

  • Real time, remote control over your home

    • A smart thermostat allows you to control your home’s heating in real time from anywhere in the world through your laptop, tablet or smartphone.
  • Visibility of your energy use

    • This smart product records everything about your home’s heating from your preferred temperatures to how long it takes your house to heat up. This way it can let you  know how much energy you are using and recommend ways you can reduce waste and save money.
  • Increased comfort

    • By allowing you to manage your heating on the go, a smart thermostat will ensure that your home is always as you like it. With the right settings programmed into your app, this thermostat can detect when you’re on your way home, or have left the house, and adjust the temperature accordingly.

 

4. Smart Smoke Detectors

When customers begin looking into home automation, one product that often gets overlooked (even though it shouldn’t) is the smart smoke detector.

They are cutting-edge in fire safety and can alert you immediately if there is an emergency in your home, no matter where you are.

Some of the reasons why you should add this product to your home security system include:

  • They automatically alert emergency services in case of a fire, saving valuable time.
  • Allows you to silence a false alarm from your phone
  • They give you advanced notification that your detector’s battery is low so that you can always make sure it is working optimally to protect you and your family.
