Smart deadbolts are integrated with connectivity technology, so they can communicate with your tablet, iPad, iPhone, PC, and laptop. Each brand has developed a mobile app that must be downloaded to your source device before you will be able to remotely control the deadbolt. You will have the option of unlocking and locking the door from anywhere around the world. This will definitely come in handy when a family member or room-mate forgets their keys, or if you live alone.
The smart doorbell is integrated with a wide view camera, two-way speaker, and motion sensor. When the visitor rings the doorbell, you will immediately receive an alert on your app enabled device. You will have the option of answering or rejecting the call and then viewing the video later.
The motion sensor will pick up any movement outside your door, so you will be alerted even if the visitor refuses to ring the doorbell. You will also have the option of communicating with the visitor via your iPhone or doorbell.
You will find a wide array of security system brands on the market. These systems are designed to offer security in and around your home. Most of these devices are integrated with connectivity technology that will allow you to control all of the smart home devices in your home.
These systems come with either indoor or outdoor cameras, but you can purchase additional cameras, but they must be compatible with the particular brand that you purchase. The cameras will provide you with a live feed of the viewing area, which can be viewed on your PC or iPhone.
Each smart home device can be controlled, monitored, and managed via one individual app. This makes it very convenient to try and control 6 or more devices simultaneously. Well, you will not have to, if you purchase an automation hub. This device is integrated with smart automation technology, which will allow the homeowner the option of remotely controlling every device via the hub.
