Indian consumers for generations have trusted the padlock on the door and the grilles on their windows, but home security today
is has evolved. Like everything else that technology has advanced, whether it be door locks or home cameras, individuals can control smart devices at their fingertips on their phones wherever they are. For example, we have been focusing on innovation and R&D for more than 5 years and have spent more than 10% of our turnover year after year to understand how to bring the most advanced and practical solutions to consumers today. Electronic security solutions are not just about implementing a single product, but designing a modern home with an integrated network of products that work together to secure your home. From wireless alarm systems and video intercoms to home lockers and home cameras.
How to Customize Basic Home Security Needs
Choosing a security system for your home seems difficult, but it just requires understanding your current needs and understanding what the latest innovations are. For example, young people living alone might not need a full system with a home locker, but will see how useful having a camera is. At the same time, a family may recognize the importance of having an internet-connected smart locker to communicate attack alerts through a mobile app.
As there are several companies in the market offering different products, it can be difficult to choose the best one. It is therefore recommended to choose a reputable brand, recognized and ranked among the best. There are also some latest innovations in technologies that consumers need to be aware of, for example: electronic home security solutions are being upgraded by incorporating features such as image and video capture, intelligent motion detection and alert, wireless technology to connect sensors to the alarm panel.
Even safes are now smart and can connect to the Internet to communicate alerts in the event of an attack. Home electronic security solution systems are conveniently designed for homeowners. For example, most products offer Wi-Fi connectivity, these systems use the Internet to allow users to talk to their visitors even when they are not at home. Wifi alarm systems communicate alarms over the internet in real time, CCTV feed can now be viewed over the internet on any smart device.
Data protection and privacy are more important than we think
One of the things we need to consider when opting for home security solutions is data privacy, choosing solutions that protect your data and don’t leave you and your family vulnerable. Not to mention, like everything else, this data is also stored in the cloud, which ensures that the cloud server not only protects your data, but also makes it accessible only to certain password-protected devices. The main cloud advantage and differentiator is the country in which the server is located. Products offering cloud servers of Indian origin are much more secure and low-risk compared to those whose servers are in other countries. These are crucial things for consumers to understand and it is important that their awareness in these areas is strong in today’s world.
Plus, if your home security solution provides two-way communication, that’s an added advantage. It also leads to a proactive and not a reactive approach. Most security solutions today send you a trigger or an alarm in case of unexpected activities. The pandemic has made consumers aware of the increased need for home surveillance not only to protect property, but also to keep loved ones safe from a distance. According to a recent study, The Cocoon Effect by Godrej Security Solutions, 81% of respondents worry about the health and well-being of their parents or children at home when they leave them alone. With lockdowns across the country and older parents stuck in different cities, home cameras are a non-intrusive way to stay connected to them.
