With an increase in online shopping, we are constantly giving our addresses to a great many businesses. In this scenario, it is not easy to keep your home secure. Many tech companies, such as Google-owned Nest, Ring, and Netgear, have been trying hard to make home security cameras more efficient.

There are many varieties of such security cameras available in the market. It is up to you to know your needs and buy the one which is the most suitable. Smart home security cameras are able to identify the visitors and send notifications to you. They are usually linked to an app from where you can control the settings.

Key features that set apart the best home security cameras include night vision, notification alerts, plenty of cloud storage for your recorded footage, and microphones to give out voice commands. Others will have audio capability, particularly useful for indoor security cameras listening in for unusual noise.

A complete home security system with over one camera and a router can set you back $500. There are inexpensive versions as well which can be purchased for less than $200. Arlo Pro is one of the most practical home security models in the market right now.

Smart Home Security 2018

Huge Growth For Smart Home Security In 2018

Security Sales & Integration partnered with Parks Associates in the event of the annual Residential Security Market Report. Residential security dealers have had an increase of 7.72% in their business. The study included 170 dealers and found out that dealers are facing margin challenges and new competition.

The average installations per month are about 8 for home security systems for small dealers. Most of these devices requested are either the standard models. Very few of these are professionally monitored as most of the homeowners don’t want to pay an extra monthly fee.

A great change seen in the last half-decade is the increase in interactivity for the security system. Alarm.com is the most popular interactivity vendor followed by Honeywell Total Connect. Though none of the smart security devices have crossed the 50% mark, they are likely to in the near future. The DIY market is getting better by the day too.

Among the approximately one-third of installing dealers that also sell DIY systems, half report selling more of those in 2017 than in 2016. It is certainly not all doom and gloom, however. The expansion of security to include increasingly sophisticated smart home options plays to installers’ strengths.

Smart Home Alexa App

Even More Control Of Your Smart Home With The Alexa App

Having multiple Amazon Echo devices in your house can make your house delightfully smart. You will be able to control all the features of your home from your Alexa app, no matter where in your house the devices are located. The difference between an Amazon Multi-Room Music Group and a Smart Home Group is that the latter allows multiple devices to be connected via Alexa.

The Alexa app lets you create a Smart Home Group for each room of your house. These can be named 'Kitchen', 'Lounge', 'Dining Room', 'Bedroom' etc. You can then assign devices located in each room to the Smart Home Group of the same name — for example, you can assign all smart lights in your bedroom to the group called Bedroom.

Amazon Multi-Room Music Group is a network of speakers. Once done, you can request Alexa to play any genre at any place in your house. You can control Alexa with your voice commands or with by using the app. Naming the devices in each room along with groups created should be clear, to both the user and the app.

Smart Home

Ready For The Smart Home Reality?

All kinds of futuristic devices that we saw only in cartoons have actually started becoming a reality now, thanks to smart home technology.

There are now smart locks on our front doors that we can control from anywhere. We can buy refrigerators that can order us more milk when we’re running low. And we have beds that adjust based on our sleeping patterns. At the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in January, we saw even more futuristic gadgets for the home, including a TV that rolls up like a poster, a mirror that talks to us, a laundry folding machine, and a queen-sized bed that rocks us to sleep.

We are looking at a future where these smart devices are quite affordable and commonplace. The smart home of the future might also include moving into a ready and perfect home. It is also likely that smart technology can be implemented into our existing devices. Everything that one can think of will have smart technology in the future, as far as we can deduce.

Best Smart Home Devices

CNET Staff Picks The Best Smart Home Devices

Smart home technology promises to make your living quarters more comfortable and secure. These are the top four smart devices on the market which are efficient and are sure to keep you comfortable. The Ecobee4 Smart Thermostat has a remote sensor and has many smart inclusions, such as a built-in Amazon Alexa speaker. It is one of the best smart thermostats in the market.

August Smart Lock is simple to understand and use. It works with Apple’s HomeKit software and on the Nest platform. Unfortunately, it is compatible with every lock.

Amazon Echo is a whole lot smarter and much more reasonably priced.

The Echo still doesn’t sound as good as premium, high-fidelity speakers. The volume ring of the original is gone, replaced with the cheaper volume buttons of the Echo Dot.

Amazon Cloud Cam is a great choice for indoor home security cameras. You will have 1080p HD live feed, motion notifications, and free clip storage of 24-hours. On the other side, only Amazon cloud subscribers can receive alerts and there is no facility for a local microSD card storage.

Samsung Smart Home

Samsung Is Here To Stay When It Comes To Smart Home Technology

From tech companies to start-ups, everyone has been focusing on Internet-connected home appliances for the past few years though not a lot of people have not taken this up. One cannot blame the consumers either. These smart gadgets are more expensive and though they are useful, many can get along just fine without them!

Samsung acknowledges that the revolution with this is taking more time than expected. It is planning to create one SmartThings app which will contain all the Internet of Things apps. According to Samsung’s innovations team located in the US, there are a few factors which have advanced in the past few years. They are artificial intelligence, processing technology, and the consumer’s understanding. He also talks about Samsung’s ideas for advancements for IoT in the near future.

“If you look at our Family Hub (Samsung’s smart refrigerator) in 2016, it was very minimal. We’re trying to do two things. One is making sure we add new relevant features and functions, and the second one is that the overall experience is a lot more pleasant. With those two strategies we’re hoping we can get to where we want to go.”

Google Home Max

Google Has Just Super-sized Your Smart Speaker With The Google Home Max

Google’s Home Max is a bigger version of its Home smart speaker. It was built to compete against Sonos and Apple’s HomePod. The Home Max has Google Assistant which looks a bit like the old Hi-Fi speaker by Apple. As far as specifications go, the Home Max has two 4.5-inch woofers with far-field microphones, supports Bluetooth, and Google Cast.

The Home Max has the ability to tune itself thanks to the Smart Sound feature, just like Apple’s HomePod. Smart Sound also helps to tune the device for any audio that you happen to be listening to including phone calls. It will also control the volume when needed, such as when other machines in the house are switched on, creating noise.

The company is also giving away 12 months of YouTube Music (ad-free) with every Home Max purchase. Google says the Home Max will retail for $399 and will be available in December for the new year.

Best Buy Home Automation

Best Buy To Provide Services For Home Automation Setup

Best Buy recently reported that they were expanding 700 of its stores to be able to showcase Amazon’s Echo and Google Home devices in a better manner. Smart home devices look to be a great growth area for Best Buy. Though everyone enjoys the comfort of automatic devices, there are many who are clueless on how to choose the most suitable one and operate them.

In order to be able to get all the benefits, the user should know how to link the device to home facilities such as lights, appliances, and security along with installation issues. The expansion of Best Buy helps in explaining the operations to the people who are then willing to buy them. Recently, Best Buy has come into a partnership with Vivint, a smart home solutions provider, to sell Vivint’s products in 400 of their stores.

North America is expected to be the largest market for smart home products, and given Best Buy’s solid market position in the region, it is well poised to capture this growth. Further, setting up a home automation system can be fairly complicated, and Best Buy has an opportunity to provide services for setup, generating additional revenues.

Googles Smart Displays

The Battle For Smart Home Supremacy Continue With Googles Smart Displays

Amazon made a fine debut in the home assistant market with its Echo devices. Google has been quick to rise to the challenge, offering a few of its own devices. In 2014, Google bought the smart thermostat company Nest which lost its spotlight when Echo, Amazon's virtual home assistant was released. With Google Home, Google claimed the top again.

With Amazon coming up with newer versions of Echo, Google is quick to respond every time. Recently, they announced that about 15 third-party electronics manufacturers will be releasing their devices with built-in Google Assistant. It has also gained momentum in the hardware market with its laptops, tablets, and smartphones along with wearables and home electronic appliances.

Google also has by far the biggest app store -- which is available on its new smart displays but not on Echo -- and the company has also opted for a more open platform. While Echo can be used to place orders on Amazon, Google Home can now make orders with dozens of different stores like Wal-Mart and Target.

The moves from Amazon, Apple, and Alphabet are an attempt to gain technology supremacy. They are all focusing on different consumer aspects.

Nest Smart Home Security

Nest Continues To Grow In Smart Home Security

Nest introduced their new devices, the Nest Cam IQ Outdoor security camera, the Nest Hello smart doorbell, and the Nest Secure alarm system, recently. The Linus Lock was also introduced again under the name Nest Yale Lock. In one move, Nest is now offering home security and automation system supported by Google.

Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is a video doorbell while Nest Secure is a security kit with alarm systems and sensors. Previously, Nest was offering different products to handle different aspects of your home. Now, they have made it convenient by bringing all of it under one umbrella. Any changes that need to be made can be made in the main settings. They still have their standalone products but they are now also offering to take care of your complete home security system.

While Nest is doing interesting things with home security (particularly by sticking facial recognition tech in outdoor cameras and doorbells), I'm not yet convinced Nest Secure adds much to what's already out there. DIY systems like Abode, Scout and Simplisafe have been around for awhile and offer a lot of the same features as Nest's Secure (and, in some cases, for less money).
