As a homeowner, you are probably pondering the many issues to tackle in order to ensure that you and your household are safe, protected and comfortable at all times. That’s one of the benefits of living in a smart home – these things are already mostly automated for you! If you’re looking to make the switch to a smart home, here are a few important things you can’t afford to skip.
Smart Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors save millions of lives each year worldwide. If you do not have a smoke detector in each room of your home, be sure to install them before settling into your new residence and sleeping there. Keeping your smoke detectors working can help prevent fire-related hazards in your home. Additionally, smoke detectors can help to warn children and other members of your household of potential danger in the kitchen and other fire-susceptible areas throughout the house. A smart smoke detector has the additional capabilities of sending alerts to smartphones and tuning on the lights in the home to wake everyone up.
Smart Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Carbon monoxide is a silent yet extremely deadly gas that causes household fatalities each year due to a lack of timely detection. Installing a carbon monoxide detector in your home or apartment is essential to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Smart carbon monoxide detectors connect with your smartphone and home lighting, and even send you low-battery alerts.
Individuals who succumb to carbon monoxide poisoning are often unaware of carbon monoxide in the air, leading them to remain oblivious to the poisoning itself. As carbon monoxide begins to build up in the body, victims simply become tired and unable to remain awake, which ultimately results in death. A carbon monoxide detector is vital to save lives in the event that carbon monoxide begins leaking into your own home.
Smart Home Security Cameras
Investing in home security cameras or a home security system is one way to add another layer of protection to both the interior and exterior of your property. A home security camera system does not have to feel invasive, especially with the ability to build your very own DIY home security system today.
With solutions such as Ring and other smartphone-enabled security apps and solutions, it is now easier than ever to track any area inside or outside your home. Even if you are not interested in an indoor home security system, you can install outdoor home security cameras to keep an eye on your front porch, your yard and surrounding areas.
Taking the time to invest in the safety and protection of your home and family is imperative. With the proper tools and protective gear, you and your home will be better prepared for and protected from potential trouble that may arise.
