With more access to new and developing technology for your home, it can be overwhelming to figure out what’s worth the hype or just a fad.
Smart home products are just some of the many devices that can help keep you and your home safe. They can secure your home and prevent a burglary, alert you to fires and high carbon monoxide levels, regulate your energy consumption and let you know who’s been near your front door. Here some top choices to consider:
Smart door locks mean you don’t have to worry about losing your keys. With the click of a button, you can secure the entrances to your home without having to double check.
Do you feel like you’re always missing couriers? You never have to miss an important delivery again by installing a smart doorbell. They have cameras for you to see who’s outside your home from the comfort of your couch – or while you’re at work. They’re also a great backup to use while you’re away or on vacation in case no one is home.
Lastly, stay worry-free by installing smart smoke detectors. These detectors can identify smoke or higher-than-normal levels of carbon monoxide before the problem escalates. Many of these smart devices are paired with an app, so you’re always alerted of an emergency even when you’re not home.
If you’re a renter, you may not have control over the devices that can be installed. But you can still protect yourself and your belongings by having tenant insurance. Insurance providers such as Belairdirect have options that cover a renter’s personal property in the rented unit if it is damaged, lost or stolen due to a covered incident.
