Security in the Age of the Smart Home

Security has traditionally meant a good deadbolt and a loud burglar-alarm to deter criminals. With the advent of smart home technology, this is evolving. Now homeowners have more control — all made possible by connected devices, smartphones and the Internet.

Companies that have been mainstays of the security industry are adapting their services to better meet the needs of consumers.
