Here are some of the best safety devices for your home and how you can utilize them in your home.
Door and Window Sensors
To enter a home, burglars must go through the doors or the windows. Surprisingly, studies have shown that an overwhelming majority of burglars simply open the door and walk in. If the door is locked and secured, they then look for a window that has been left open. Burglars try to avoid smashing and breaking their way into the home because of the noise it creates. Their goal is to be in and out as quickly as possible without drawing attention to the house. If breaking a window could draw attention to the house, they will avoid it unless they are desperate to get inside. The good news is that it’s fairly easy to prevent burglars from entering a home if you use door and window sensors.
A door sensor is a simple, smart device that can be placed on the frame of the door. It uses an electrical current to detect when the door is being opened. The moment the door opens more than 1 inch, an alarm is set off, and a smart notification is sent to your mobile device. In most cases, the alarm will scare off any intruders. However, you should always send the local authorities to the house to make sure that the property is safe for your family to return home.
Window sensors work similarly to door sensors. If the window is opened, an alarm is set off. However, there are a few different varieties of window sensors. In addition to the electrical current window sensor, there is also a window sensor that “listens” for the sound of glass breaking. When it hears the high pitched frequency of glass breaking, the alarm is set off. Another type of window sensor is placed on the glass of the window and feels vibrations from the glass. If the glass is hit forcibly or the glass is broken, an alarm will be set off, and your mobile device will be notified.
HD Security Cameras
One of the most important smart devices you can use in the home is the HD security camera. There are both indoor and outdoor options for a variety of house placements. The HD quality of the camera ensures that you will never miss a moment on camera. Best of all, the camera can store up to 7 days worth of storage (and even more if you insert an SD card). You can also watch the live camera footage from your phone. This means that you have access to the camera feed while you’re at work, school, or on a date. No matter what, you always have access to both the indoor and outdoor feed.
Here at Cove Home Security, our security cameras are wireless to ensure that they can be easily set up. The cameras also have night vision to protect you and your family both day and night. The cameras can be easily set up and placed around the home. Since they are triggered by motion detection, the cameras will never miss an opportunity to catch the bad guy.

Additionally, here at Cove Home Security, we make an effort to provide you with the best safety devices for home for the best price. That means that you will be getting top-notch security cameras for a fraction of the cost.
Motion sensors are one of the most common smart devices for the home. Motion sensors are triggered through PIR (passive infrared radiation), a harmless type of radiation that is emitted from every living thing. When the PIR sensor detects this radiation, it knows that there is a living thing nearby. If the motion sensor then detects that the radiation has moved, an electrical reaction sparks inside the motion detector, and the alarm is triggered. Motion sensors are highly effective ways to protect your home and can keep you safe both during the night and the day. Motion sensors can be placed both indoors and outdoors and are meant to catch movement. Since Cove’s motion detectors are smart, the triggered alarm will automatically contact your mobile device and send you a notification of the possible danger.
Smart Fire Alarm and Smart Carbon Monoxide Detector
Home safety is more than having cameras and motion sensors. Home invasion is not the only threat to your home and family. Having a smart fire alarm and smart carbon monoxide detector can protect your family from some of the most horrifying dangers. No matter where you live, fire can always be a threat. Whether you live in California where fires are constantly being fought or Florida where the main fires are caused by indoor gas leaks, fire is a threat to your home. The main benefit of having a smart fire alarm is that it notifies you of the danger remotely. Often, fire alarms are localized to the home. If the alarm goes off and you’re at work, there’s no way of knowing. However, with a smart fire alarm, the alarm will send you a notification, and you can call the fire department before there is any serious damage to the house. The smart fire alarm saves hundreds of thousands of homes every year. When it comes to fire, smart smoke alarms excel in ensuring your protection.
Another option for smart safety devices for your home is the carbon monoxide detector. The smart carbon monoxide detector is similar to the smart fire detector except that it detects carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is considered the “silent killer” because it is odorless yet poisonous. It’s impossible to tell that there is a leak in the home without a carbon monoxide detector. Having a smart detector allows you the same benefits as a smart smoke detector.
