picking a safe for your home

Must-Have High Tech Gadgets For Your Door

Older doors can cause problems in a few different ways. For one, if you have a sticky lock, you may not be able to get into your home when you're carrying a child, groceries, etc. For another, if you don't have windows by your door, you may not be able to see who is at your door, which can leave you susceptible to home invasions. In any case, there is technology available to you that will allow you to get into your home more quickly and safely than you could with other locks. 

Smart Locks

One item of technology to look into is a smart lock. While not all smart locks are the same, there are a few features that you should look for including but not limited to the following:

1. Automatic opening doors: Some smart locks will have sensors on them, which will respond to your smartphone or a key fob so that your door will unlock automatically. Some doors will even open for you.

2. Automated locks: Another option is to use locks that come with an application that you can install on your smartphone. These apps will allow you to check the status of your lock from your bed or from work. Thus, if your door is unlocked, you can push a button on your phone and unlock it. Automated locks can be a huge help. 

Video Locks

Another option that you can use with an automated lock is a lock that gives you a video feed of what is going on at your door. Thus, if a guest shows up early from work, you can check the video feed on your phone and unlock your door. In some cases, the video camera will come separate from the lock, and in other cases, the camera will be integrated right into the lock itself. In either case, adding a camera to your door will help to give you a view of a door that wouldn't otherwise be able to see. 

If you have older locks that need to be replaced, or you have a door that does not give you a good view of what is going on in front of your house, then you seriously need to consider upgrading your locks. A good locksmith should be able to help your properly install a smart lock and make recommendations about which locks offer the best value for your money. Contact a business, such as Southern California Security Centers, for more information.   

About Me

picking a safe for your home

One of the best things I ever did was becoming an independent jewelry consultant. I get to collect beautiful pieces, entertain friends and family and earn a living while doing it. One thing that the company recommended that I do was to invest in a safe to store my inventory to protect it from potential burglars. I started learning about the different types of safes to find the one that would be best for what I needed it for. I have compiled everything that I learned about picking and choosing a safe for my home right here on my blog.
