Home Automation – Deep Dive #2: Home Automation for Security
Now that we got you hooked with the ‘gateway drug’ of automation (lighting), it is time to step things up a notch and figure out how you can use automation to protect/secure your home. In the second deep-dive into the Home Automation series, the Brothers discuss the types of home security devices, and considerations you should have when choosing which is right for you. Oh, and you will want to stick around until the end (not that you wouldn’t normally…) to see what system Alan is going with in his new home! We know you are on the edge of your seat…
In addition, the “BiTS” (Brothers in Tech Suggestions):
- Brian’s Pick = Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera ($129.99). Indoor/outdoor security camera with some nice features…rechargeable, waterproof, and magnet attachment (for easy removal).
- Alan’s Pick = Adobe iota Security Kit ($259). Nice package with everything you need to get started with home security. Camera, motion sensor, siren, door sensor, and key fob. **Alan is just getting started with this system, and is only providing a preemptive recommendation!
