If you aren’t using the latest technology to keep your home secure and your family safe, you are really missing a trick, and it’s probably time for you to think about investing in one or two gadgets to take care of your home when you are unable to do so yourself.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best home security tech currently on the market:

Blink XT

If you’re looking for security cameras that can be used in and outdoors, and which can be accessed remotely, the Blink XT security cameras are hard to beat. Whether you use them with tripod parts to surveil your home’s boundaries or set them up inside to catch any intruders, they have long battery life and a crisp 1080p video feed that means, should anything untoward happen, you will be immediately alerted and able to very clearly see what is happening in your home. Wireless and easy to install, no home should be without them. 


The Ring doorbell has soared in popularity of late and it is not hard to see why. This wireless smart doorbell is the perfect solution for those of you who like to know who is at your door whether you’re at home or elsewhere. As soon as anyone comes close to this gadget, you will get an alert on your phone, and you can check out the video feed to see who has come calling, and even talk to them too. It’s a great deterrent against people trying to gain access to your home, and also a good way to decide whether you want to answer the door or not!

Nuki Smart Lock

Smart locks are still a pretty new part of the security technology scene, but if the Nuki Smart Lock is anything to go by, they won’t be obscure for long. The Nuki lets you lock and unlock your door using your smartphone or the desiccated Nuki Fob. If you invest in the Nuki Bridge, it will even let you lock your doors over the internet fr,m any location. This means that it’s great for securing your property if you’ve forgotten to lock up when leaving home in the morning and you don’t want to drive back. As if that wasn’t enough, you can also use it to grant one-time access to friends, family members, and contractors who may need to get into your home for whatever reason. It’s way more convenient than a boring old key, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Nest Protect

Nobody wants their home to be ravaged by fire, but it’s way more common than e would like to think. Thankfully, the Nest Protect carbon monoxide detector and smoke alarm has got your back. If there is a fire or a gas leak, it will pick up on it pretty fast and immediately alert you to the danger so you can call the relevant authorities and get your family to safety before disaster strikes.

Stay safe!
