From Cloud-Connected Doorbells to App-Controlled Indoor Drones

In recent years, there has been a growing demand for high-tech home security systems that go beyond grainy cameras to give consumers full control over their home.

When it comes to keeping homes secure, locks are the first line of defense. As a result, many security companies have developed tech-infused locking systems that help to keep intruders from breaking in. Some of these high-tech locks include door handles embedded with HD video cameras, smart locks equipped with biometric fingerprint scanners and even doorbells that feature facial recognition software.

Beyond the front door, high-tech home security systems are often tied into a hub that allows for control over many different features. For instance, the Securifi Almond can be synced with multiple devices so that users can control everything from the lights to the thermostat from a single location. Similarly Mosaic has created the Smart Home in a Box so that users can customize different security features to their exact space.
