The security industry is continuously evolving. With positive results in controlling crime against people and property, as well as the increased accessibility of emergency response, some technological advancements in security have proven their importance and reliability.
Development in home security
The value of connectivity via the Internet is felt in different sectors and industries, including security. With the use of this type of connectivity, and with the development of certain software and hardware, almost any ordinary home can become a smart home.
The functionalities provided by a smart home setup are not limited to security. The homeowner can set timers for just about everything that can be connected to the home’s Internet of Things. The homeowner can also choose to control these devices remotely, using a mobile app. A homeowner commanding their garage to open with voice recognition is no longer a thing of the future but of the present.
With all the convenience a smart home setup provides, it would be rather pointless if safety were not part of it. Cameras, motion detectors, alarm systems, remote access via app, and automation all come together to make a smart home remarkably safer than its non-smart counterparts. Even the experts behind eFORCE Software agree.
Dispatching security and first-response personnel
While computer aided dispatch software is not exactly new technology, developments in smart home designs have added new functionality. A smart home experiencing a burglary or any kind of intrusion can automatically alert security or police. With the right kind of software, the alarm can send dispatch commands to the authorities on duty, so that delays in first-response can be avoided. CAD software also enables a dispatcher to do their job more quickly and reliably, even if they are swamped with alerts.
Security is advancing courtesy of the technological developments surrounding it. From smart homes to CAD software, its benefits play a huge role in the background for most people, and in the foreground for those who find themselves in immediate need of help.
