With a rise in home security technology, residents can now gain additional peace of mind by making the front of their home much more secure. With upcoming Halloween and mischief afoot, it’s the perfect time to bolster your defenses. Here’s a rundown of all the features you can add to create a safe smart door.
How a Smart Door Protects Your Home
1. Smart Doorbell
When you have a smart doorbell installed as a home security mechanism, you can remotely see, hear, and even talk to anyone at your door. That grants a tremendous amount of control to you even if you’re not home, easing the pressure on teenagers or a babysitter. Smart doorbells, like the popular SkyBell® from CenturyLink® Security, will send you an automatic alert as soon as there’s any activity, so you’ll be in the loop and won’t be caught off guard.
2. Smart Door Lock
Another useful home security amenity, also available from CenturyLink® Security is the addition of a smart lock to the door. Often used in conjunction with a smart doorbell, it’s helpful to have control over the actual locking mechanism. If you ever realize you forgot to lock the door, you can simply do so with the tap of a button on your phone. If someone needs to get in while you’re away, you can let them in without disturbing your neighbor or running the risk of hiding a spare key under the mat.
3. Smart Lighting
One last helpful home security tactic is smart lighting, which is particularly beneficial around the front door. Burglars often target houses that have been dark for several days in a row since it suggests that the residents are away on vacation. But even if you’re on vacation, smart technology from a company like CenturyLink® Security keeps the lights on for a small part of the evening so you can deter potential interlopers.
