It’s very common these days to see new companies sprout up out of nowhere and revolutionize an industry. Since apple in the late 70’s the world has been made aware of the presence of these latent dangers. Disruptive technology as they call it can literally disrupt an entire industry. This means complete loss of assets for older companies that are too inflexible to compete with newer lighter companies. What gives these newer companies such an advantage though over larger companies? It is not something as clear cut as better hardware, management, or experience. Often times in fact there are lack thereof of any number of required pieces like investment that present these disruptive companies from taking of. IT is in the rare and fortunate circumstance though that the stars align and someone with a great idea can replace older ideas. The larger system try to quiet the news of the newer product or business and discredit the company. Often times they even try to lobby against them and establish legislature preventing their working based on a number of tricky and frightful techniques. It is in this disruptive mix that we now find the Home security system industry.
It is 2014 and we have been experiencing the revolution of mobile technology now for 7 years. Since the release of the iPhone the world has been revolutionized by smartphones, touch screens and mobile internet connectivity. The industry is so successful that it has spurred other industries that sell used cell phones to other countries for huge profits. This mobile platform was most revolutionary though not for the hardware or constant connectivity, but for the app store. The ability to easily distribute personal high power control. This changed everything.
Entering 2014 and the ubiquitous revolution has begun. Known as the internet of things, we are now making not only smartphones, but smart devices. These smart devices can be anything from a toaster, to a watch, to you home security system. These mobile sensors collect an overwhelming stream of information that never stops. With enough sensors and with enough variety of sensors you can literally sense and protect anything. Even your health. The most popular according to Home Security System Reviews is the SmartThings. These systems are mobile smartphone controlled that verge on home automation. They are robust and 24/7. In addition. They have no monthly fees. This is a fact that older companies like LifeShield and ADT are desperately trying to hide from you. You see, there business depends on you not knowing.
Traditional home security systems rely on 24/7 home monitoring services. While it is true there, yet, is not compensation for a human monitor. At the cost of an often 5-10 year $50/month contract, they are ridiculously expensive and non flexible. They also come with professional installment that often is very costly and not included in the original product or monthly cost. If you move, your system doesn’t come with you. Older systems that use these services often are also wired services.These are a burglars dream. After all, cutting the wires is an so common its movie cliche. These less secure, more costly, and out of date systems are robbing millions and seeing their market share shrink fast. The new technology of 2014 is not just a new model. They are they next generation of home security systems.
