Home security and home automation were once two completely independent worlds with distinct family responsibilities.
Safety consists of sensors, motion detectors, fire/smoke alarms and other devices that help protect your safety. Home automation is... It's nothing. It's the rice cooker and the light bulb lights up when you clap your hands.
Now, however, smart home security is a wireless network composed of high-tech, non-conspicuous equipment and professional monitoring, making your home safer than ever. And the popularity of smart home appliances can make your home a better place.
Even better, home automation and security are now integrated into a simple ecosystem that opens up a world of integrated possibilities.
The future of technology has arrived, and all you have to do is figure out how to integrate it into your life.
It can be said that the first shot of the home automation revolution was fired in 2011 by Nest with its "learning thermostat".
Until then, other thermostats had limited automation. Nest has created a home automation device that can learn from your model, such as if you like to be cool or warm, or if you are at home or not.
In addition to making you more comfortable, this is also an effective way to save energy and money.
Since then, Nest and other technology companies have expanded their business to home automation and home security.
1. Family Safety Gate
To find a home automation and security combination, just walk to the door. The easiest way to protect family security is not to let intruders in.
Millions of homeowners are using easy-to-install video doorbells to watch, listen and talk to anyone in front of them. You don't even have to go home. Everything happens on your smartphone. Nothing scares potential thieves more than telling them to "get away".
Door locks, another combination of home automation and security. Door locks have gone far beyond simple locks, they are not just to prevent intruders.
Door locks offer some of the most tangible benefits of home automation:
Whenever someone comes in or goes out, they will automatically send a smartphone alarm.
Create or revoke access codes for housekeepers, nannies, nurses or other people who need access.
_With the help of smart phones, it can lock or unlock automatically. This method is especially useful when you are in a hurry or when you forget to lock the door when you are driving away.
2. Don't forget the garage door
It is easier to see the practical benefits of home automation for garage door control. It's one thing to open or close a door with a remote control.

Anyone who forgets to close the garage door a few kilometres from home appreciates the benefits of smartphone control without turning back to check.
3. Video surveillance with powerful function and reasonable price
Once you get home, it's easier to make home automation a part of your daily life. When you're not at home, you don't have to think about what's going on. You can watch it directly through live or recorded videos.
In the past, advanced cameras were only available for companies that needed inventory protection, or for retailers who wanted to reduce shoplifting. But now, as a smart home security tool, video surveillance has become very cheap and easy to use for homeowners.
Installation of indoor or outdoor cameras does not require professionals, especially if they are part of a wireless home security system. It is usually a simple paste-on installation or a bracket with several screws.
4. Bring the lights on
Thieves tend to bypass lighted houses at night, because this usually means that there are people in the house.
It's unrealistic to turn on lights all day, but you can use your smartphone to control lighting from anywhere.
Of course, this is only one aspect of the combination of home safety and home automation. This is for safety and convenience. You can turn off the unnecessary lights at home, or you can quickly check them with your smartphone and turn them off.
5. Future voice control
Millions of people use "virtual assistants" for voice control. Apple first launched Siri in 2011, while Amazon's Alexa debuted in 2015, and Google officially launched Google Home in 2016.
Voice control devices can be as simple or complex as you want. Some use them to learn about the weather, play music or answer questions. Others use them to play games, listen to stories, follow daily schedules, and even find recipes to explore their functions.
Now that the boundaries between home automation and home security are blurred, every virtual assistant in voice control can help you stay safe. The best smart home security systems are usually compatible with voice control. _
Want to be very advanced? You can set commands such as "I'm going to sleep" that trigger a series of customized actions on multiple devices, such as door lock, lights out, camera boot, thermostat stabilization at the appropriate temperature.
