Your home is more than just a place to live - it's where you and your loved ones make memories and feel safe, and as technology continues to advance, smart homes are becoming more and more innovative and can now improve the safety and security of your home. With smart home security and safety devices, you can have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones and property are protected.
There are several reasons why safety and security are crucial for your home.
Crime rates are rising
According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Report, property crimes such as burglary and theft have increased in recent years. In 2019, there were an estimated 7.6 million property crime offenses in the United States alone. Having a security system in place can deter criminals and reduce the risk of break-ins.
Peace of mind
Knowing that your home and loved ones are safe and secure can provide peace of mind. With a smart home security system, you can monitor your property and receive alerts if there is any suspicious activity.
Protect your assets
Your home and possessions are valuable assets, and it's important to protect them. Security systems can help prevent theft and damage, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements.
Protect your pets
Pets are part of the family, and their safety is just as important as yours. A smart home security system can alert you if there is any unusual activity around your home, giving you time to check on your pets and ensure their safety.
How Smart Homes Can Help
Smart homes use technology to make our lives easier and more convenient. They can also improve the safety and security of your home. Here are some ways in which smart homes can help:
Remote Monitoring: Smart home security devices allow you to monitor your home from anywhere, at any time. You can keep an eye on your property, loved ones, and pets, even when you are not at home.
Automation: Smart homes can automate tasks like turning lights on and off, remotely opening and closing garage doors, and adjusting the temperature. This can make it look like someone is at home, even when you are away, deterring potential burglars.
Alerts and Notifications: Smart home security devices can send alerts and notifications to your phone when something is amiss. For example, if someone tries to break in by opening your garage, you will receive an alert immediately and can even remotely close your garage.
Integration: Smart home security devices can be integrated with other smart home devices, such as cameras and lights, to provide a more comprehensive security system.
Ways To Protect Your Home
Door and Windows
The Shelly Door/Window 2 is not just a device that can protect your home from intruders, but it can also protect your kids. This tiny device can be easily installed on any door or window in your home and can detect when it is opened or closed.
Let's say you have a toddler who likes to open doors and windows when you're not looking. With the Shelly Door/Window 2, you can set up automation rules to receive an alert on your smartphone whenever a door or window in your home is opened protecting your kids from getting into any potential hazards in the home.
But what if there's a water leak or flood in your home? That's where the Shelly Flood Sensor comes in. This small, wireless device can detect water leaks and floods and send alerts to your phone when it detects water.
This allows you to take action before the situation gets worse, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in water damage repairs. With the Shelly Flood Sensor, you can rest assured that your home is protected from unexpected water damage.
The Shelly Motion2 is a small device that can be placed anywhere in your home to detect motion. When triggered, it can send an alert to your smartphone and trigger other devices.
For example, if the sensor detects motion in your backyard, it can turn on the outdoor lights and trigger a siren to scare away intruders. With the ability to customize alerts and automation rules, you can ensure that your home is always secure.
Did you know that in the United States alone, there are approximately 350,000 house fires each year? These fires can be caused by a variety of factors, including faulty wiring, cooking accidents, and gas leaks. The consequences of a house fire can be devastating, causing property damage, injuries, and even fatalities. That's why it's so important to take proactive steps to protect your home and your family from the dangers of fire and other hazards.
By investing in smart home devices like the Shelly Gas, you can be better prepared to detect and respond to potential dangers before they have a chance to escalate into something more serious.
Imagine it's summer and you're in the middle of a heatwave. You have a stocked fridge full of fresh produce and groceries that you don't want to spoil, but you're worried about the possibility of a power outage due to increased demand and high temperatures. This is where the Shelly Plus H&T can come in handy, even in an unexpected way.
As fire season approaches, utility companies may implement power outages to reduce the risk of wildfires. This means that you could potentially lose power for hours. During this time, it's important to make sure that your fridge is staying cold enough to protect your perishable items.
However, opening your fridge to manually check the temperature can let out the cold air and make your fridge work harder to get back to its temperature once the power comes back on. By placing the device in your fridge, you can monitor the temperature and humidity inside the fridge from anywhere, at any time.
You can set custom temperature and humidity thresholds to receive notifications if the temperature or humidity in your fridge goes above or below your desired range, so you can be protected if there is a power outage or your fridge breaks down without you noticing.
Have you ever stressed over the devices you leave plugged? By simply plugging the Shelly Plus Plug into any standard outlet, you can turn any appliance into a smart device. With the ability to control it from your smartphone app, you can easily switch off the electricity with just a tap of your finger.
This means no more worrying about left-on appliances, which can be a safety hazard for your home and loved ones.
In addition to the safety benefits, the Shelly Plus Plug also offers automated energy efficiency, saving you money on your energy bill while reducing your carbon footprint.
Investing in a smart home device like the Shelly Plus Plug can provide you with the peace of mind that your home and family are safe and secure, while also providing added convenience and energy savings.
Smart Home Devices Can Take Your Home Protection To The Next Level
All of these devices can be integrated with other smart home devices to provide a more comprehensive security and safety system. And with Shelly's easy-to-use app, you can control and monitor all of your devices from anywhere, at any time. Whether you're at home or away, you can rest assured that your home, family, and pets are protected.
