Home security systems are a not just a thing of the future, designed for modern, expensive, new homes; they are becoming an essential part of everyday life and a necessity in every family’s life. Security systems, thanks to new technological achievements, have become integral pieces of our homes. Yet, this branch of technology, just like many others, evolves amazingly quickly and our question today is: what is to be expected in tomorrow’s home security systems and what are the advances that will make our homes more secure places, shielded from unwanted eyes, ears and fingers?
Fire monitoring will become unavoidable, being one the biggest dangers to modern day homes, equipped with all kinds of gadgets that depend on electricity to work. Advanced fire detection systems are being developed that will alert you immediately and respond instantly, even notifying the local fire department and assuring prompt reaction to potential fire hazards.
Medical alert systems will be just as sought after, because today’s lifestyles depend on quickness, deadlines, and ever growing demand for information, which all lead to stress. One of the biggest medical issues of the future, stress is one of the causes of many illnesses and will certainly influence many modern day medical problems. This is why all kinds of medical alert systems are being developed in order to provide instant help when needed. People will carry wristband or pendants with buttons to notify emergency services or with built-in communicators which will provide instantaneous communication with trained professionals, regardless of where you are.
Carbon monoxide (CO) monitoring, designed for basements and garages primarily, will allow you to react accordingly, because carbon monoxide is anodorless gas, undetectable by our senses. Since it can cause dire consequences, even if inhaled in miniscule quantities, it is of extreme importance to oversee the built up of CO. Many security systems are being designed to assure your timely reaction to unsafe levels of carbon monoxide and to ensure safe evacuation.
Home automation systems are a must: just remember that popular cartoon “The Jet sons”. The fact that you are away from home does not mean you are out of control. No matter where you are, you will always be able to monitor what is going on in your home. Unlocking doors, arming or disarming security systems, manipulating the lights, the heating, appliances and other gadgets that will surround you in the future, will be a just a few types or words away. Apps on your mobile phone will be readily available.
Video monitoring will allow you to keep track not just of possible break-ins, but to see what the kids are up to and where the pets…are Motion detection sensors based on infrared technology will be all around your home and cameras will allow you constant monitoring and recording.
