As we head into the homestretch of 2017, it is time to start thinking about what trends in Home Security to look for in 2018. Wayne Alarm prides itself on offering a wide variety of home and business security options to keep you, your family, and your work family safe and sound. We are always looking for ways to protect you and your property at a budget that is right for you. Here are some of the home security trends to watch for as we slide into 2018.
- Home Automation – One big area that we have seen a lot of growth in over the past year is home automation. It promises to be even more popular next year. No longer are home automation systems reserved for the “rich and famous” but for typical families that want to integrate the technology they already have with home security and remote access to items like: lights, locks, security cameras, and thermostats. The basic technology is now within reach for most people and working it has become easier with each generation. This trend is becoming more and more popular now that homeowners understand how the systems are easily controlled with a smartphone app or on a tablet.
- Comprehensive Packages – Many homeowners are now looking for a comprehensive package that includes: security alarms systems, fire/smoke/CO alarms, surveillance cameras, remote access to locks and lights, and motion sensors that can alert you when they have been tripped. With these comprehensive packages, as well as access to 24/7 monitoring, Wayne Alarm can offer safety prevention in one comprehensive package. This means that busy homeowners can have peace of mind while they are away at work or out for pleasure.
- Voice Activation – If you love Siri on your smartphone or another voice-activated device such as Alexa, Echo, or Google Home, then you might be thrilled about this trend! Voice activation is becoming accepted as a way of controlling technology in the car, at business and now, at home. Many new security systems are providing options for voice control to do typical security functions such as locking all the doors, turning on lights, or setting the alarms.
