How This New Security and Home Automation Trend Could Help You

Recent enhancements in home automation technology have made it easier for people to control various aspects of their house from the comfort of their mobile phones. These include sprinklers, lights, smoke detectors, and motorized shades. The other significant area of home automation which is empowering homeowners is video surveillance. With more hi-tech security camera options in the market, it’s easy to personalize and control home security, even when away.

The latest innovative feature in security camera systems is increased Artificial Intelligence (AI) for video retrieval. The advantage of AI for video retrieval is that there is much better “searching” of video footage. For example, the search criteria could say, “show me all footage with a small red car,” and the relevant results will show immediately. The process saves considerable time in sifting through video footage if one knows what they need to find. Therefore, what was once only available to businesses is now readily available to homeowners as well.

Another big trend is cloud backup, which is handy if the video recorder is stolen. The key camera video can be viewed from the safe remote location where it’s stored. However, all these capabilities come at a slightly higher price than the “basic” systems, so it’s important to know what is required.

As there are many choices to evaluate and higher prices that could stretch your budget, we recommend consulting a pro to help configure the right security camera.

Consequently, if you’re thinking of upgrading your security cameras with the latest AI video capabilities, get in contact with us today. At LiveSmart Technologies, we offer a range of AI options from low to high and take the time to explain to clients how the systems work. We’ll help you understand what you can expect by providing the trade-offs between cost and capabilities.
