Will a Smart Doorbell Keep Your Home Secure?

Looking to secure your home from thieves? Could a smart doorbell be the answer to your home security requirements?

What are smart doorbells and how do they work?

For many years, when businesses and homeowners wanted to monitor activity outside their properties, they would install CCTV cameras on the outside of their property. However, for the majority of homeowners, this hasn’t been something many have chosen to do.

For some, it might have been the complexity of the systems with cameras and recording equipment in the home. For others the sheer cost of the equipment and the installation compared to a simple burglar alarm which is usually enough to put off most opportunistic thieves.

However, in recent years people’s attitudes towards home security has changed with many more people now opting for these smart doorbells. With the range of these devices ever growing from a whole multitude of manufacturers. Your choice is almost endless.

They’re no longer restricted to the most security-obsessed and technology-savvy individuals. Many smart doorbells have the option of storing their security footage in the cloud (that simply means available for you to view from anywhere and from any device without you having to be at home).

The technology in these devices has advanced so much now, that the majority include advances such as night-vision cameras, allowing you to see activity activity outside of your home 24 hours a day.

Apart from convenience though, it is believed that the camera features act as a deterrent for any criminals or intruders looking to burgle a property thanks to their ability to record and capture live images in high-quality resolution.

There is no denying how capable smart doorbells are for monitoring activity outside of your home in the vicinity of your doorbell. When you’re not home, should the worst happen and you become the victim of a burglary. Your smart doorbell should capture any activity from the location of the device which can be shared with the police in the hope of apprehending the criminals.

But better still, just like the old adage says; ‘prevention is better than cure’, ensuring your home remains secure from criminals by keeping windows, especially ground floor windows and doors which should be kept locked when you’re not home and overnight is key.

Thieves will often look for weak windows or doors which they can force open, they’re far less likely to break glass or do anything which could alert neighbours or passersby to their presence.

It may sometimes seem like all doors are the same, but not all are built to the specification of the police-backed accreditation ‘Secured by Design.’
