In a smart home for baby boomer, needs of security are the first aspects most easily met.
Local security companies are a great means of wireless security which can be viewed from your device. There prices are high, and they have a monthly fee. Additionally, on the plus side of a security company, they install the equipment, teach you how to use, and then if your alarms go off, they verify with you and then arrive at the scene.
If you don’t need anyone to arrive, there are wireless devices that you can put on top of your cabinet or shelves which will dial emergency numbers, record movement, and notify of the movement as it begins recording.
There are wireless, battery operated video cameras, window and door devices, loud alarms, and outdoor chimes, lighting and surveillance systems.
What you choose, depends on your environment. Many device combinations are available to feel safer, to have just a little more peace of mind, without committing for 3 years, and without committing to thousands of dollars worth of equipment.
