These days, people can do so much more than just lock their houses with a key. If you're interested, you can also invest in a smart lock. A great example of this is the Samsung SHS-2920 Digital Door Lock, a smart lock that provides multiple layers of security. For one, it automatically locks the door as it closes, so you never have to forget doing so. It also comes with an alarm so homeowners can be notified of repeated failed attempts at unlocking the code. Lastly, it comes with circuit technology that allows it to withstand high-voltage electric shock.
Many other smart locks exist out in the market, from various brands you may already trust. Yale, Ultraloq, and Schlage also carry innovative models that come with a security pad, fingerprint recognition, and backup measures that can sync to your phone for added convenience!
One of the ways intruders can come into your home is through your window. For this, it's best to invest in an intruder detection system. Systems such as these can sense vibrations around the window; if anything is amiss, alarms will go off or a notification will be sent to your phone (with the option to call for emergency). Motorised windows can also be helpful for homes that have hard-to-reach windows. These may be controlled or locked with the help of a remote or even through your phone.
Lastly, for families who prefer privacy, smart glass can also be installed into windows so that homeowners can control the opacity of their windows. This gives people not only privacy, but also the power to control how much heat enters into their abode.
Smoke detectors aren't necessarily new additions in the field of home security—however, with all the current innovations, it's important to upgrade yours if you haven't. Most of the smart detectors can now identify dangerous levels of both smoke and carbon monoxide. Google Nest has their own model which you can link to your smartphone for easy monitoring. Others even come with a built-in Alexa assistant so that your smoke detector can also play music, give you weather updates, and even set timers!

A video doorbell is one of the easiest ways to ensure safety in your home, especially if you don't have access to a peephole. It's the first line of defence for those who are wary of unexpected visitors. From the name itself, a video doorbell allows homeowners to identify who their guests are right away. This can be particularly helpful for families with children or teens or even people living on their own without security. Some models can even be connected to smartphones so that you can view who comes in or out your home from wherever you may be. Others also come with a microphone and speakers for easy communication.
