Your smart­phone can con­trol ev­ery­thing, even your home’s lock

Technowize Magazine - - Trend Spotting -

The best piece of tech­nol­ogy to make sure that your home is safe at all times is the smart lock. Such locks come with a num­ber of se­cu­rity ben­e­fits for your home. The big­gest ad­van­tage of this is that you no more need to worry about los­ing or mis­plac­ing the house keys. In case it gets stolen, we need to change the locks. All this can be avoided as our smart­phone is some­thing which is with us at all times. Also, there are times wherein you get stuck in traf­fic on a week­end and your friend is wait­ing at the doorstep for you. At such a time, you can give one-time ac­cess through your friend on the smart lock which will let him into the house. In case you are un­sure whether you locked the door prop­erly while leav­ing, you can lock it once again on a re­mote ba­sis as well. This makes it al­most im­pos­si­ble for the thieves to break into your house with the help of a magic key.

Spot the fire

Smoke de­tec­tors have been made manda­tory in a num­ber of coun­tries in not only com­mer­cial build­ings but also res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties. These tra­di­tional smoke de­tec­tors sense smoke and

im­me­di­ately dis­miss wa­ter to put out fire. The wa­ter would be all over the place and is at times not enough to put out a big fire. In such a si­t­u­a­tion, you need to start look­ing for the ori­gin of the fire drenched in wa­ter once the alarm goes off. There is a smart so­lu­tion to this as well. Smart smoke de­tec­tors are avail­able in the mar­ket which is con­nected to your smart­phone like other such de­vices. In case you aren’t at home and the alarm goes off, it will no­tify you on your phone so that you can call the fire brigade be­fore it’s too late. It will also pin­point the ex­act lo­ca­tion from where the smoke is orig­i­nat­ing. Due to the abun­dance of tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions tak­ing place on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, we are keen to try ev­ery new de­vice and make our lives eas­ier. In the case of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence de­vices, they are the most ap­peal­ing of them all. But it’s time we re­al­ize that this tech­nol­ogy can be used for a spe­cific pur­pose in­stead of just en­ter­tain­ment. Safety of our homes is a ma­jor con­cern and Ai-en­abled de­vices aim to curb the ten­sion about the same.
