Home Security of the Future

 

We are all becoming increasingly familiar with the ways smart technology, artificial intelligence and the "internet of things" are affecting our lives. And one positive change these things have brought about is in the field of home security. There are still home security companies out there, but now the average homeowner can take things into their own hands as well. Here are a few things you can use to keep your home secure.

Ring Doorbell
One of the most popular smart home security systems on the market today is the Ring doorbell. This smart doorbell connects to your Wi-Fi and can send real-time updates directly to your smartphone. That allows you to see who is at your door even if you're not home, as well as avoid answering if you're not expecting anyone. 

It's easy to mount and to set up wirelessly. And it is one of the most affordable options on the market. Ring is owned by Amazon and is compatible with the Amazon Echo devices. 

Nest
Ring's direct competitor, Nest, is owned by Google and seems to be the top choice for those households that have embraced Google Home Assistant over the other smart device brands. Nest is also a smart doorbell that offers many of the same features. However, Nest is more expensive, and you can pay extra for installation. 

However, Nest does offer more remote accessibility for people who want to monitor their security when they're away from home. 

Skybell
While Nest and Ring are the two most popular options on the market, another one to consider is Skybell. One particularly notable feature is the ability to hear and speak to the person on the other side of your door even if you're not home. This is one of the few products on the market today that offers that option. 

Skybell also allows you to store your videos for free for up to seven days, which can be helpful for home security. Skybell is on par with Ring in terms of pricing. 

There are a couple of other devices on the market too, so it's useful to do your own comparison to determine which is the best for you.
