Home Buyers and Sellers: Home Security Technology

Whether you are buying or selling a home, it is important to implement security measures to protect yourself and your belongings. In addition to an alarm system, there are other devices that can be useful. Here are a few we have found beneficial below: 

  1. Nest Cam: $199 |  The Nest Cam will send you updates directly to your smart phone each time it detects noise, or motion. It even specifically states if it spots a person. With a paid subscription, the video and activity alerts will be stored in your account. Nest provides cameras for both indoor and outdoors. 
  2. Kwikset Kevo Smart Lock: $229 | This lock is Bluetooth activated by your Smartphone. It also can be used with a FOB, or a tradtional key with Smartkey technology built in. This allows you to grant or deny access to people coming into your home, as well as create an approved list of people. It will allow you to minister each time someone has accessed the home, additionally, you can lock or unlock your door remotely. 
  3. Roost Smart Battery: $35 | This Smart 9V battery for Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms lasts for 5 years and will notify you on your smart phone prior to the battery running out. It will also send you a notification straight to your phone if the alarm goes off, even if you are not home so you will be able to call 911, if necessary.
