Up until a few years ago, getting to live in a cool, tech-forward home with automated everything might have felt only possible in your imagination or as a dream. But it is no longer a pipe dream to have a smart home in Singapore. We are living in the golden age of technology and in just a couple of decades, we have gone from corded phones to tiny computers in our pockets that are capable of dozens of simultaneous communication functions.
In Singapore, it is gradually becoming a necessity to enhance one’s home security and improve energy efficiency. Hence, having a smart home and having digital locks is rising in popularity here. Despite the numerous benefits gleaned from having a smart home, one of the main concerns is whether it is safe and feasible for children.
This article will discuss some of the features of digital locks and accessories that are children-friendly whilst enjoying the advantages of a smart home.
So, what exactly does a smart home entail? Smart homes are currently a multi-billion dollar industry. Homes with smart features are getting increasingly popular among property seekers. With technology being able to monitor and manage almost every aspect of our lives, why not allow it to take care of your home too? With smart devices being integrated into your home, appliances and functions such as lighting, air-conditioning, refrigerators, coffee machines, alarm systems, and even locking your main door become a breeze to control. Furthermore, a smart home also benefits the environment by encouraging energy efficiency. Innovative technology helps to manage your expenses and therefore, improves your quality of life and enjoyment of your living space in Singapore.
The first step to a smart home in Singapore begins when you take your first step into your home - at your door. Although digital door locks have been around for quite some time, they have primarily been used in public spaces such as banks, schools, and offices. However, several companies began to develop digital door and gate locks for residences. Installing a digital door lock means not having to constantly look for your keys or remember to carry them around. No more having to worry about locking yourself out of your home.
And, they just happen to be both child-friendly and protect them from harm. You no longer need to be anxious about leaving your kids at home alone. If you pair a doorbell camera with a smart lock, it also gives you the ability to see who the visitors are and lock or unlock your home door accordingly. There is also the freedom for remote access, meaning you can always have peace of mind that the doors are locked even if your kids forget to do so.
A great option for digital locks with smart cards would be the Kaiser Lever Mini. Or if you would feel safer with a number pad or pin code, you could opt to go for the Solity Digital Lock. The Bosch Digital Lock also adds fingerprint access as an unlock method, making it all the more intelligent and safer.
A digital door peephole or digital door viewer could be the answer to your ultimate peace of mind. It is important to feel safe in one’s home and your family should feel safe too. While it may be completely safe for your children to answer the door when you are not around at home, there are still instances where those who are outside could pose a threat. Hence, as an extra step of caution and security at your home’s first point of entry, install a digital door peephole camera.
You are now able to view your visitors in real-time on an LCD screen as they get within range of your door. This is especially useful for children as they are often not tall enough to look through the peephole on the door. They can safely watch a visitor come and go without having to come into direct contact with them or exposing themselves to any possible danger.
Incorporating security features in your smart home network can help you and your family to feel safer. It even allows your kids greater autonomy over taking care of their homes in Singapore. You can keep them protected even if you are not around to keep an eye on them. Get Hoz’s digital locks for your home today and keep your children safe.
