No matter what neighborhood you live in, your family’s safety is a priority. With the current growth of smart home technology, why not apply it to keeping your home — and family — safe?

If you have a security system or know someone who does, then you must be all too familiar with the rush to disarm the system as soon as you get inside your home. This new smart home security system, FLARE, takes away that daily dramatic step, but gives peace of mind that your home is safe and sound.

A Smarter Security System

The FLARE smart security system by BuddyGuard is built with a 1080p HD camera and microphone, enabling it with face and voice recognition technology, which allows the system to immediately recognize the homeowners, as well as know when to react to intruders.

When an intruder is detected, FLARE responds with a siren and noises to sound as if someone is home. The system will alert the homeowners of any suspicious activity in the house, like if someone tampers with the device. If the owners don’t respond, an alert is sent to an emergency contact; if they don’t respond, then local authorities are notified. This three-phase alert system prevents any embarrassing false alarms with authorities, as well as ensures an alert to emergency contacts in the case of an intrusion.

The 4.3-inch, disk-shaped device is meant to be placed near the main entrance of the home. With its high-tech camera, it records and saves images of entrances on an online database.

Flare is currently available in Europe, but will be released worldwide in November. The security system is estimated to cost around $349.

If you’re looking for a way to make your home safer, FLARE is an easy investment to do just that.
