How to Smartly Secure Your Home

Your home is the most expensive purchase you will ever make and so ensuring it’s secure is extremely important. Smart Security Solutions can provide you peace of mind security around the clock- wherever you are. But where to start? There is a wide variety of solutions that fall under the category of ‘Smart Security’ and below we breakdown Smart Security products illustrating just how they can protect your home.

Outdoor Camera

An outdoor camera is the first line of defence in your Smart Security arsenal. It surveilles the exterior of your home, providing a video recording or live feed straight to your smartphone so you can keep an eye on your home from wherever you are. Smart Outdoor Camera’s are motion activated and will automatically start recording the event, however dangerous or unremarkable that event might be. Simply the sight of a security camera can be enough to warn off potential intruders so the physical presence of a camera can increase the safety and security of your home. Outdoor cameras can come in a variety of different video storage, range of view and power requirements so it is important to research what sort of camera is best for you before going to purchase.

The Bosch Eyes Outdoor Camera provides you with peace of mind security as well as atmospheric lighting. It streams 1080p HD video straight to your smartphone or tablet as well as saving up to 200 clips for you to view, share and save. The camera has integrated sensors so that your clips are not filled with trees swaying or pets walking past, instead only recording the events that are significant. The integrated lights enhance the look of your home without compromising your level of security, enabling it to perform just as well at night as during the day. You can also use it as an intercom system to speak to a delivery driver or warn off an intruder.

Indoor Camera

An indoor camera can provide you with a multitude of benefits beyond securing your home. Again, these are motion activated which plug into the mains of your home, streaming live video footage to your smartphone. These cameras are designed to monitor the many things that go on inside your home all day long. Integrated intercom systems allow for two way communication so you can tell the dog to get off the sofa, ensure the children are getting on with their homework, or simply drop in to make sure everything is as it should be. Much like outdoor cameras, the range of indoor cameras in the market have huge differences in video quality, range of view and privacy settings so careful research is important if you are going to get the right solution for your home.

The Bosch 360° Indoor Camera is the perfect solution to keep an eye on every corner of the room. Its integrated motion detectors rotate the camera head towards the action and automatically tracks movement with its 360° scope so you don’t miss a moment. It too has an intercom system which allows you two way communication and live streams 1080p HD video to your smartphone while offering privacy mode to give you moments alone when you want them.

Motion Detectors

Motion detectors are standard practice in any security system and the Smart Home is no different. Motion detectors sit in the corner of the room, watching and waiting for motion to occur. Simple to use, Smart Motion Detectors send you notifications when unauthorised motion is detected and triggers an alarm (should you have one connected to it). Motion detectors provide reliable and efficient protection within your home and should be a consideration when building your Smart Home System.

The Bosch Smart Home Motion Detector intelligently monitors the motion within your home and immediately notifies you if unexpected motion is detected. It has an integrated temperature sensor to recognise small animals and pets so anything below 25KG is not triggered thus avoiding false alarms. It is precise enough to pinpoint the respective room where the motion is detected to allow you to act accordingly.

Smart Sensors

Smart Sensors are the unsung hero of the Smart Home Security System. They attach to doors or windows and continuously monitor what is opened, closed etc. Being able to see what doors or windows are open in your home can give you peace of mind when you are not at home and they also provide the first line of defence if your home is broken into, enabling you to act quickly.

The Bosch Smart Home Door/Window Contact secures your home by sensing if a door or window is open or closed and providing you a notification if anything changes.

Smart Smoke Alarms

You wouldn’t necessarily associate a smoke alarm as a device that deals with security but what is one of the biggest dangers to your home? Fire. Smart smoke alarms allow you to go about your day-to-day knowing that your home is safe, as well as knowing that you have the best possible chance to react quickly if fire does hit. Smart Smoke Alarms keep an eye on your house when you are out but it is important to consider, what more can it do?

The Bosch Smart Home Smoke Detector provides reliable smoke and fire detection, allowing you to call the emergency services straight from the app, should the worst happen. The Smoke Detector can also be networked with the Motion Detector and Door/Window Contact to sound an intruder alarm if unauthorised access is detected providing a robust security system.
