Recent innovations in home security and protection
When it comes to the world of home security and protection products, there has been a real revolution in recent years. With advances in electronic, lighting and monitoring technology, new products and devices abound on the market. Here’s an overview of some of the latest.
While we are all familiar with the practical cleaning robots that have been around for some time, robots are finally available as home security and protection tools. For example, a new product that is being funded on Indiegogo called “Buddy.” This robot bills himself as the housemate of his family. The little robot has a screen as a face. The face can be used as a monitor for many tasks. The robot can be programmed to patrol your home when you are away. It will monitor any unusual or out of the ordinary activity, such as if they see something in your backyard. Since the robot uses facial recognition technology, it can also alert you to intruders or people who are not supposed to be in or around your home. The robot can also be used for security tasks. If you leave the house and think you may have forgotten something or left the stove on, you can have the robot look around the house or check the stove settings. In fact, you can log into the robot with your smartphone and use its camera as your mobile eyes and ears at home. The robot can also be used as a safety device. It monitors fires, floods and temperature changes and sends you an alert if it detects something.
Motion detection products
Another advancement in home security is the many products now available in motion detection. While motion detection technology has been around for a long time, it has only been in recent years that it has been used in so many home and business security products. Now you can find motion detection surveillance and lighting products that are always monitoring an area and only turn on when something crosses their path. This is very useful because it saves electricity, batteries, and money, but you can still feel safe.
Another great innovation of the last decade is the use of light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, as they are popularly called. These lights have a size advantage, but they also consume much less energy and emit much more light than traditional types of lighting. You will see that they are used more often in new lighting products today, and for everything from lighting for the home, business, construction sites, roads, transportation, and even in your purse or pocket.
