Improvements in wireless home security

When we first purchased our home, I looked into a home security system. At that time, everything needed to be hardwired in. I wasn’t willing to have a bunch of holes drilled into the walls and ceiling to accommodate wires. It bothered me that I knew the security system would eventually become outdated. I’d then need to have everything removed and potentially replaced. Plus, the equipment was rather large and unattractive. I gave up on having a security system installed and adopted a dog. That was almost twenty years ago. Just recently, I did some research and was amazed by the progression in technology. Modern security systems are wireless. They can be installed without causing damage or compromising aesthetics. All the components are very compact, streamlined and unobtrusive. As new versions are made available, the improvements can easily be uploaded. There are also a lot more features offered. The security system can be a part of an entire smart home. Everything from the dishwasher, lights and sound system to the sump pump, thermostat and alarm can be incorporated into a single hub. The security system includes automated door locks that I can access through an app on my phone. I’m able to unlock specific doors to allow deliveries or home repairs. There are surveillance cameras around the perimeter of the property that provide real-time video. Through my phone, I can see if a package is left on my porch. Sensors on the windows let me know if any of them are opened or if the glass is damaged. If anyone enters the house, they need to punch in the proper code or an alarm sounds.
