More and more homeowners are now investing in security systems. It is estimated that by 2020, 30 percent of all households, globally, will have a security system – a whopping 12 percent increase in the home security systems in a decade.
Here are the top 4 home security trends forecast for 2017.
The spread of cloud computing and the development of wireless security devices are expected to have the biggest transformative impact on the way homes and residential buildings are kept safe.
The adoption of home automation panels for security purposes is on rise due to the development of centralised server platforms. One such revolutionary system is Texecom Connect offered by Texecom.
An all-in-one home security system, Texecom Connect features smart arming that allows users to set their system remotely through the Connect app.
A number of reputable household security manufacturers including Texecom have introduced micro window and door sensors that alert you when they are opened. These discreet, wireless sensors are definitely compact, smarter and more convenient than their wired predecessors.
Simple, fast and easy to setup, these contacts are so small that they can be concealed within most uPVC window frames and provides unobtrusive, discreet security. At a staggering 4-year battery life from a single coin-cell battery, these micro contacts provide longer service intervals and minimal disruption.
Trend #3: Remote Control Access and Monitoring
Integration of home security is one of the biggest security trend. Mobile app integration with security systems will give homeowners the remote access to their security systems. This remote monitoring access will give homeowners the control to lock doors and windows, turn on alarms and even control lighting.
Security providers such as Texecom are such creating smarter mobile apps for the end users. Our apps will help customers to arm or disarm security alarms, receive security alerts and have customisable home control.
Trend #4. Video Monitoring will Dominate
