Techie or not, you will always need an update when you have a security system installed in your home. So when a better version comes up, you run to it.

And sometimes, these upgrades have significant advancements, while others include minor changes that do not benefit much.

However, quite a number are more advantageous to you and your family. Read on to discover how some gadgets can improve your life.

Smart cameras

In a world where everything is quick, businesses like a travel agency in the Philippines are now within reach at a click of a button, and a new strain of cameras possesses an intelligent feature to them.

These cameras can scan a person’s vista and compare it to a few databases. If they are listed as a threat, you are informed even before interacting with them face-to-face.

Who would not want to be warned against a threat? No one.

These cameras can also be configured to have familiar faces of family and friends so that no alarms are fed to the system.

Once they recognize you, they can automatically unlock your door; cool, right?

Sound activation

The second thing to add to your home security system is a sound-activated control system. Keying in commands manually is excellent, but wouldn’t it be nice to speak it out and it is done?

The good news is that you can get these systems as fast as ordering food. And the plethora to choose from is quite impressive.

Keep in mind you have to do a bit of research to check if the device you are looking into is compatible with the gadgets you already have.

Smart light fixtures

Imagine a light, which is also a camera and a sensor with an audio system. So impressive. So now scrap that from your imagination as you can get it in reality.

These smart lights light up when someone or something approaches them.

And as soon as they are close enough, they record the person’s face sending a live stream to the owners’ device such that they can see whoever is at their doorstep.

Even better, they get to communicate with them via the audio system and get to know the reason for their visit before they let them in.

Smart locks

If you thought we had reached the climax, you’re dead mistaken. Yet another upgrade you must get is a smart lock. An actual key or an e-key can open this lock.

An adage problem of losing or misplacing your key is no longer an issue. As long as you have a phone configured to the system, you can as efficiently open the door to your humble abode.

And do you want to know the best part? You can have all these upgrades as soon as you want them. So go ahead and do so.
