Take a look at these tech devices that can help to deter burglars. 

Since your home is likely one of your largest assets, if not the largest asset, it’s wise to want to protect it properly. Fortunately, due to new technology, protecting our homes from burglars has never been easier. Not only does tech help you to safeguard your home and possessions, but it can earn you a discount on your insurance policy. Here are a few tech pieces to consider when looking to improve your home security.

Smart cameras and sensors

Installing cameras is an easy way to watch your house without actually being there. You can now get unobtrusive, wireless, and smart cameras that can alert you when there is movement or noise detected in your home when you are not present. Many are combined with floodlights and doorbells, and some offer two-way communication.

Keyless entry systems

Even items as basic as the locks on your doors have undergone revolutionary changes. You may not think you need an entry system that relies on a code or a smartphone, but they can come in very handy at times. A keyless system means that your home is more secure and you don’t have to leave keys hidden outside at any time.

Home automation

Home automation means that you can leave your home safe when you are away. An example of this is if you are away on vacation and want to turn the lights on in your home to deter burglars. With home automation systems, you can turn lights on and off while you’re away. Since burglars thrive in the dark, turning lights on and off is a good way to signal that someone is home.
