In the future, the first layer of protection for your home may not be the front door. Instead, drones can survey your home from above. Drones have been used by the army for years. They are becoming more available and affordable for public use. It is thought they will be used to scan the premises of a property. In doing so, their sensors will pick up on motion, sound and vibration, giving you assurance that your home is secured or alerting you to potential concerns. Drones also have features such as warning sounds and flashing lights, which can help to scare off or deter unwelcome visitors.
Burglar alarms in the future could have a lot more features. By utilizing technology, burglar alarms could be inter-connected to criminal database systems and with facial recognition ability, could not only alert you, but also identify the intruder by name and immediately alert the authorities.
Neighborhood watch initiatives could undergo a transformation in the years to come. By utilizing new technologies, alarm systems in a neighborhood could become linked, allowing them to communicate and pass relevant information to each other. For example, if one alarm or security system picks up on an unwelcome visitor in the neighborhood, this alarm can alert other systems in the area. They can then collectively, pooling their various technologies, begin to gather important data.
These security measures may appear very futuristic. However, with rapid technological advancements, this future may not be so far off.
