How the Internet of Things is Transforming Home Security
The Internet of Things has hugely expanded the number of home security products on the market. These range from smart locks, lights, radios, garage doors, and cameras that can be operated remotely via a smartphone to sensory devices that operate like wireless eyes and ears. The sensory category includes products such as:
- Cocoon, which uses unique sound technology to monitor activity in a home. It also tracks regular comings and goings to identify unusual activity
- iSensor HD, which features WiFi-enabled cameras that pan 180-degrees and can be operated with a mobile device
- Nest, which connects thermostats and smoke alarms to monitor the home’s internal environment for safety threats
- Point, which listens for potentially suspect sounds in a home (e.g. breaking windows) and sends real-time alerts in response to these triggers
These innovations are just the beginning for the IoT-inspired transformation of the home security market.
