Home improvements are often seen as cosmetic upgrades while the core function of your house is often forgotten — security. Our homes protect us from the elements and potential intruders, but do we take an active role in preventing risks and break-ins? Burglars and criminals make a living by taking advantage of our homes’ weaknesses and are constantly looking for an edge.

The smart home is bringing a new level of security into our lives. Controlling your front door lock from 50 miles away or being able to see who is at your doorstep remotely was once just a dream, and now it’s a reality. While home automation and smart security systems are making our homes safer, there are structural and cosmetic home improvements every homeowner can take to protect themselves and their family.

Smart Phones Don’t Exist

It’s probably in your hand or sitting next to you right now. That thing you call a phone, it goes everywhere with you because it does anything you need it to. Ironically, you probably use it to talk less than all of the other activities you do on your “smartphone.” Think about it– these devices are used for everything but talking.
