I would like to first apologize for not posting anything for the past few months. I got too caught up in other things, and I let this passion of mine fall by the wayside. You all know the feeling.
In the usual theme of highlighting technological innovations, we will look at how the world of home security is changing.
Have you ever forgotten to lock your house before leaving for errands, work, or vacation? The idea of their home and personal belongings being unprotected makes most people quiver.
Well, due to a technological innovation, it is possible to lock or unlock your home from a smartphone or tablet. By no means is this commonplace quite the opposite in fact. Most people have not yet transitioned to the kind of technology that can equip a home with virtual security control.
In my mind though, this will become pretty standard over the next decade. You will be able to set a home alarm, deactivate that alarm, turn off the lights, turn on the lights, and much more, all from a mobile device.
Obviously, this brings about significant risks as well. If the wrong person got a hold of your smartphone or tablet, they would have instant access to your home security system. However, I suppose that is no different than losing a key.
Again, this technology already exists, and many people already employ it regularly. However, in the coming years, keep an eye out for a tremendous increase in digital, mobile home security.
