How the Internet of Things Has Improved the Way We Keep Our Homes Secure

The Internet of Things (IoT) may sound abstract, but it’s anything but. Put simply, it’s the network of devices (phones, appliances, cars, etc.) that are connected to the internet through popular wireless protocols like Z-Wave, Zigbee, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Internet of Things has revolutionized the way we live, and today it’s rare to find a moment when we aren’t connected to the internet through some device.

Home security has not been left out of this technology overhaul. Thanks to IoT, security systems are now integrated into a larger network with monitoring and alerting capabilities that could help deter burglars. With smart home security systems that contain wireless motion sensors and cameras, the likelihood of an undetected intruder is nearly impossible.

abode offers a smart home security system that is affordable, convenient, and compatible with a range of devices and sensors to protect your home. The Gateway wirelessly and securely connects to security devices installed throughout your home via the abode cloud. IoT has enabled connection from your home to a professional monitoring center meaning that law enforcement or emergency responders can be contacted almost instantly in the event of a break-in or fire. This 24/7 surveillance is available at a competitive price of only $10 per month (when bundled with a starter kit), making professional monitoring services more accessible than ever before.

The abode web and mobile apps are also connected to your Gateway, so if your alarm is triggered, you will be notified instantly and be able to see what’s going on in your home.

Perhaps some of the most important advancements in the IoT revolution are the enhanced capabilities for home security. Check out abode today, and see how a connected home security system could deter burglars and fortify your home against future break-ins. All you have to do to get started is purchase one of our two starter kits.
