Technology is advancing so quickly. This is great news for the security and locksmith industry. Keeping an eye on your property, even when you’re not at home, is now easier than ever with numerous home security options available.


Smart Home Security or Sci-Fi?

It’s common for today’s advanced home security solutions to include facial recognition, cloud data storage or other such modern advances.

In fact, some popular features let you talk to your pets or connect directly to emergency services – a useful feature for someone who suffers any medical issues.

Smart locks of the future will use voice or facial recognition to identify you as you approach the door and open automatically. If you’re away, people who approach your door will be identified and a message sent to let you know who’s there. We know that smart homes are already here – letting you arrive home to a pre-heated (or cooled) house, with the lights on and your favourite tunes playing but even smarter more advanced technology is on the horizon.
