Staying up to date with the latest trends in home security can be challenging. Technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, and startups and established brands alike are constantly adding new gadgets to the market.
Over the years, we’ve witnessed the gradual evolution of the home security industry. It all began with the old hardwired security systems that had fairly simple sensors. Currently, we have smart wireless home security systems that can operate with a wide range of sensors, cameras, and devices and offer high levels of automation.
But what does the future hold for home security? We’ll explore six recent trends to keep an eye on during 2022 and beyond.
1. Home Security Robots
Robots are already cleaning our homes and giving our pets free rides, but the market for home security robots is expanding exponentially.
At the very least, a home security robot is a security camera that is mobile instead of just looking around from a fixed spot. If you add the latest sensor technology and artificial intelligence to the mix, you could have a robot that detects all sorts of potential danger or lets you know if something is suspicious. Autonomy and movement are powerful tools when it comes to security systems, and we can expect home security robots to have more advanced features in the coming years.
2. More Smart Home Security Devices
Video doorbells have become quite popular among homeowners, offering the peace of mind to check who’s at your front door at any time, from anywhere. Other security devices such as smart locks are also gaining popularity.
In the future, homeowners should be on the lookout for other smart home security devices such as smart lights, flood sensors, garage door openers, and so much more.
3. Remote-Controlled Security Systems
We are already seeing several home security systems offering varying levels of remote operation and access. Nothing beats the ability to remotely check whether your property is locked and secure by assessing the status of sensors and reviewing the video footage and log history. Such features are only bound to get better in the future.
4. AI-Powered Home Security
In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of home security firms implementing AI (artificial intelligence) into their systems. In fact, according to the Security Industry Association (SIA), AI is considered the number one home security trend in 2022.
Systems monitored by AI have a great potential to cut down on false alarms and response times while automating the entire process of alerting the homeowner of a potential security breach. With the increasing adoption of AI in home security, systems are bound to offer more automation, control, customization, and efficiency.
5. Integration of IoT (Internet of Things)
IoT is one of the home security trends to keep tabs on as it provides the foundation for modern security systems. Since IoT is connected to the concept of device integration, cross-platform security device integration is going to be big in the future.
6. Predictive Data Analytics
Because of the expected shift in the way home security systems work, there are high chances that we will see an increase in the adoption of systems that use advanced video analytics software.
For instance, we may see CCTV cameras that can use visual recognition, automatically trigger an alarm, spot hazardous or suspicious activities, block access to specific areas, or notify homeowners and the security center.
It’s never a bad time to consider upgrading your home security, but going into the summer vacation season, adding functionality like remote monitoring apps can put you at ease that your home and valuables are safe and sound while you’re kicking back on the beach. If you’re intrigued by these future-thinking security technologies but not quite ready to invest in an Enobot, we’re happy to talk to you about practical and user-friendly tech solutions, like DMP’s wireless devices.
