Keeping our homes safe when we’re away is one of the things that give us the worst headaches. Whether we’re at work, grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend, or on vacation somewhere far, we definitely need to be quite precautious when leaving our home empty.
There are many things that can be done in order to be safe and the first (and the most obvious) one is locking the doors and windows since we don’t want to leave an open house in which someone can easily enter and “treat” him or herself.

Even though the smart home technology is mostly found in devices such as wireless speakers, smoke detectors, and lighting systems, it also found its place in security systems such as home and monitoring systems, and door locks.
The following list contains five simple tips for creating an effective smart home security system.
Security cameras are the first thing we are going to mention. Today’s modern cameras have facial recognition software which can be used to open the home instead of using keys or a password and it is so sophisticated that it is almost impossible to fool the camera.
Installing smart alarms which not only activate when there is a break-in but also when there are emergencies such as fires. Another amazing thing about these alarms is that they even have features such as alerting you when there is bad weather outside.
Adding window sensors will help you find out when an unwanted activity is happening, and this activity can be directly monitored from your smartphone.
Using automated porch lights also helps. These lights can be programmed so that they turn on at sunset and turn off at sunrise, and can also be set to turn on when motion is detected.
