We’ve come a long way from the beginning of home security, where grainy CCTV footage and deadbolt locks were the most effective way of protecting our homes.

Security cameras

By 2020 it is estimated that the number of smart home devices will more than double. Cameras that use facial recognition technologies are already in existence, but future systems will take biometric measures one step further.

Data from your fingerprints and your very own heartbeat will be futuristic ways of your home identifying you; when the front door can recognise you, there’s no need to carry a key.

Your eye texture, voice and hand patterns are other aspects of your personal biometric data that can be stored by your home and accessed to identify you on arrival.

Cyber-security measures have already begun to integrate into your smart home and are expected to replace traditional security methods completely.

Smart home assistants will be able to lock and unlock doors - with your permission. By using voice recognition, smart home assistants will be able to recognise who wants to lock or unlock a door, users simply say, ‘please open the door!’. By 2035, these smart assistants will be predicting your needs and running your household.

The August home app, which can be controlled via Amazon’s Alexa, allows homeowners to control their home’s security through a smartphone; with August products you can use the Doorbell Cam to see and speak to visitors at your front door, and you can even create virtual keys for your guests.

Robotics & Drones

Forget human body guards, in the future revolutionary tech canines will be the trained home security replacement. ‘RoboDogs’ that can catch intruders will not only be fitted with a ‘barking’ alarm, but also a camera to film trespassers.

These ‘real-life’ guard dogs have been tested and approved by the US Military on operations and in the near future we may have our very own electronic RoboDogs patrolling our properties.

Drones will take on watchdog tendencies and patrol your property. They will be able to follow an intruder from your property and be your very own flying CCTV. Deploy these drones to investigate suspicious activity and to give you a complete aerial view of what’s happening around your home directly to your smartphone.

Smart Technology

Homes will feature Smart Alarm kits which will include motion detectors and discreet pressure sensors that can be placed throughout your home and activated as you leave. When the alarm is triggered your home notifies you via your smartphone - as well as having the capabilities to inform authorities.

Smart Locks will abolish the need for a key and are also controlled by your smartphone. Smart Locks will alert homeowners of anyone who enters or leaves their property and limit access to only trusted visitors. If you still feel the need for a trusty key Smart Locks can be easily opened and locked with remote key-fobs or key cards.

Your smartphone will also use geofencing technology to know your exact location. In terms of applying home security measures, geofencing will notify your other technologies when to set the alarm and when to switch it off, just by the location of you and your smartphone.
