Your home is your castle, and today instead of moats, homeowners turn to security systems for protection. While that used to be simply motion sensors or cameras, the growth in smart home technology has created a user-friendly security system that can be operated from just about anywhere, with more functions, ensuring a greater sense of security. Glenn Layton Homes is known for its smart home technology and they continue to incorporate some of the latest security trends into their Ponte Vedra homes and all of the homes they build.

Today’s security is increasingly incorporated into general smart home technology. It’s about much more than burglar alarms; it’s about your home systems being in sync to alert you and the proper authorities should a fire break out, down to your HVAC system shutting down to prevent the spread of dangerous gasses, and locks being disarmed so that your family can get out easily and firefighters can get in easily.

The current trends see the multiple home systems becoming more integrated, so that fewer mobile apps need to be used to control the various systems. More multipurpose apps will be available to streamline the process, while also working with multiple systems so you can more easily pick and choose the security system components that work for you.

Systems are also improving through learning patterns of the owners, eventually cutting down the number of steps an owner needs to go through, as the system’s AI learns through repeated use. You’ll be able to make changes, but it will recognize your most common patterns and preferences.

Of course, with all of that knowledge of your patterns and preferences, homeowners rightly worry about their privacy. This is a major factor being focused on in the latest versions of home security technology. Along with face recognition, so that not just anyone can access your security, the demand for stronger encryption to protect the privacy of homeowners is one of the leading issues and developments going into the latest versions. Since Glenn Layton Homes first built the HGTV Smart Home in 2013, smart home technology has grown by leaps and bounds, while becoming smaller and more easily integrated. All of their Ponte Vedra homes and any home they build now includes certain smart home features right from the start, with the option to add in more. As technology becomes more integrated and easy to use, more and more people want it to be a part of their home, for both security and convenience. No matter where you are, you can adjust the temperature of your home and see who is at the back door, all with a few simple taps and swipes on your phone.
