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

Abode January 30, 2019

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.
