Back in the day, it was extremely hard to access automated home security solutions. That is unless you were a stocks trader on Wall Street or a big business person. However, times have changed and there are now many ways to increase home security. Now, you can simply rush off to your nearest home security outlet and explore your options.
The great thing is that these devices are affordable and budget-friendly. That said, considering the many options at your disposal, it can be hard to find the best smart home gadgets for your home security.
In this article, we’ve narrowed down your search to these top smart home gadgets:
Smart Spy Cameras
There’s no talking about home security systems without mentioning spy cameras that connect to your phone.
Using a mobile app that you can easily download from the apps store, you can see exactly what is going on in and around our house remotely. Moreover, these cameras often have motion detection capabilities and will send an alert directly to your phone if a sensor is triggered.
Smart Security Cameras That Work Without Wi-Fi
Some cameras will let you see what’s going on in and around your home without the need for Wi-Fi connectivity. These security cameras that don’t need Wi-Fi use either cellular technology or PoE technology.
One of the main benefits of this is that you can still monitor your home even in a remote location without internet connectivity.
Wi-Fi Video Doorbell
Don’t expect a burglar to always get in through the windows. They can also get in through the front door.
However, with a Wi-Fi video doorbell, you can see exactly who’s at your front door. If its someone you don’t know, then you can approach with caution. Alternatively, you can also inform the authorities.
Smarty Light Fixtures
Smart light fixtures are just that—smart. At first, they may appear just like any other uninteresting lighting outside your home. However, these will often hide a camera, allowing you to see an intruder right before they make their move.
You can then inform the authorities and the burglar will be surrounded in minutes.
Smart Fire and Smoke Detector
Home security is not just about protecting your home from burglars. It’s also about ensuring that your home is safe from fires. This is also one of the reasons to invest in a home security system with smartphone access.
Smart fire and smoke detectors have an app that you can sync to your phone. They’re also super simple to install. As soon as they detect smoke or heat, they send an alert to your mobile phone.
What’s more, in case the device goes off accidentally, you can quickly reach for your phone and turn it on.
Smart routers come with some amazing security features. For one, you can get an alert whenever someone is using your Wi-Fi. Some will even have features to prevent other devices from accessing your home network.
Other routers also come with extra features, like motion cameras and door sensors.
Home Speaker Camera
The best smart home gadget for your home security is one that can be hidden in plain sight. And what better way than to get a speaker that also has an inbuilt camera and microphone? A burglar will never know what caught them.
The great thing is that some of these speakers are simple to mount and can be operated remotely by downloading a mobile app from the app store.
Smart Home Baby Bundle
Home baby bundles are nothing new. However, with smart baby bundles, you and your baby can enjoy some pretty cool features.
For one, it offers the 24-hour surveillance you get with a normal baby bundle. However, it also takes things a bit further. Motion detection and sound detection will send an alert to your phone whenever your young one is awake. You can also press a button and communicate with your baby remotely.
We already looked at some cool smart home lighting solutions. But, the hue lighting is worth mentioning. It offers some great features, such as lighting up the living room when the sun goes down or even turning on the lighting outdoors as soon as you’re on the driveway.
This way, you don’t have to worry about someone sneaking up behind you as you reach the driveway.
Technology allows you to shift from dumb security systems to smart systems. You can monitor your home remotely and inform the authorities at a moment’s notice in case of an incident.
The latest Global Threat Index report for January 2020 claims that that cybercriminals are exploiting interest in the epidemic to spread malicious activities, with several spam campaigns relating to the outbreak of the virus.
Right after the huge global attention around the coronavirus, cybercriminals started using the interest to spread their malicious activity. In January and February 2020 “the most prominent coronavirus-themed campaign” targeted Japan, distributing a trojan called Emotet in malicious email attachments pretending to be sent by a Japanese disability welfare service provider, says the report. The emails appear to be reporting where the infection is spreading in several Japanese cities, encouraging the recipients to open the document for more information. Once he/she opens the document, Emotet trojan is downloaded on to his/her device.
Emotet is an advanced, self-propagating and modular trojan. Originally a banking Trojan, off late it has been used as a distributor of other malware and malicious campaigns. It can also spread through phishing spam emails containing malicious attachments or links.
In addition to email campaigns, there has also been a noticeable rise in the number of new websites registered with domain names related to the virus. The research firm claims that many of these domains are probably being used for phishing.
Check Point spotted and claims to protect online users from websites known to be related to malicious activities that lure them to their websites with discussions around the virus, as well as from scam websites that claim to sell face masks, vaccines, and home tests that can detect the virus.
An example of such a website is vaccinecovid-19.com. It was first created on February 11, 2020 and registered in Russia. The website is insecure, and offers to sell “the best and fastest test for Coronavirus detection at the fantastic price of 19,000 Russian rubles (about $300)”.
The website also offers pieces of news and a heat map of the coronavirus spread, but on closer look one can see that it is immaturely designed, providing instructions and comments such as “ a place for a beautiful subtitle” (in English translation).
The Snapdragon X60 also features the new Qualcomm QTM535 mmWave antenna module for better mmWave performance. QTM535, the company’s third-generation 5G mmWave module for mobile, features a more compact design than the previous generation which allows for thinner, sleeker smartphones.
“Snapdragon X60 allows for fiber-like internet speeds and low latency, delivered wirelessly over 5G, which will help unlock the next generation of connected applications and experiences, from highly responsive multiplayer gaming and immersive 360-degree video to connected cloud computing – all with the superior power efficiency for all-day battery life,” said the company in a statement.
“As 5G standalone networks are introduced in 2020, our third-generation 5G modem-RF platform brings extensive spectrum aggregation capabilities and options to fuel the rapid expansion of 5G rollouts while enhancing coverage, power efficiency and performance for mobile devices. We are excited about the fast adoption of 5G across geographies and the positive impact 5G is having on the user experience,” said Cristiano Amon, president, Qualcomm.
Meanwhile, Qualcomm recently launched three new chipsets — Snapdragon 720G, 662 and 460 — with support for Navigation with Indian Constellation (NavIC) in India. NavIC has been developed by Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) as the Indian version of GPS. Chinese smartphone brands Xiaomi and Realme have confirmed that they will be launching smartphones with NavIC support based on the new Snapdragon chipsets soon.
While GPS is very popular among smartphone users, what most people do not know is that GPS is not the only satellite navigation system. Russia uses its own GLONASS while the European Union and China have Galileo and BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS).
