Bringing the Internet of Things to Home Security

· Palo Alto California,Scott Safadi,housingforgoogle,San Jose

If you're a techie, you're probably well-versed in all things home automation. For the rest of us, the Internet of Things is a term frequently tossed around but never fully explained. Describing the network between physical devices, the term applies to a number of home appliances, vehicles and software. While home automation is certainly changing the way we rent apartments and single-family homes, Scott Safadi of Cal Bay Property Management believes it could also revolutionize home security as well.

Whether you're looking for the best home security system or just an easy way to keep your property secure, there are plenty of tools to help. There are a number of trends you can partake in to keep your community safe. Get started with tools like:

Security cameras. There's no need to shell out big bucks for fancy security cameras. Instead, invest in an affordable camera that automatically uploads footage to the cloud. That's right: you can check on your home while vacationing on the beach in Hawaii and share troubling footage with police with ease.

Smart doorbells. Remember the scene in Ferris Bueller when his principal shows up on his front door to confront him about his absence? The doorbell scene is hilarious and iconic - and now, you'll be able to answer your doorbell from anywhere in the world. Smart doorbells can now forward live video and audio feeds to your phone, allowing you to keep an eye on who has come to call while you're out.

Fingerprint scanners. Like something out of a science fiction movie, fingerprint scanners are no longer for government spy agencies or underground laboratories. Using the same technology utilized by your smartphone, these fingerprint scanners can keep your valuables safe from prying hands.

As home security continues to evolve, it pays to stay on top of the trends.
