Many security systems come with sensors that you can attach to the windows and doors of your home to monitor burglary. One of the limitations of these devices is that they usually include only one monitoring function. In the long run, this is something that can cost you extra money if you move and end up with too many one sensor and not enough with another. Security camera maker Arlo may have an elegant solution to this problem.
At CES 2022, the company introduced a security system that includes an all-in-one multi-sensor with eight monitoring functions. It can detect movement (including door and window openings), water leaks, changes in light and temperature, as well as the sounds of T3 and T4 smoke alarms. Each sensor is about one inch wide and connects to a modular hub that includes a backlit keyboard and NFC connectivity so you can use your phone to activate and deactivate the system. The hub is also compatible with various Arlo security cameras and its Secure subscriber service.
The Arlo security system will go on sale sometime in the first half of 2022, according to a statement the company shared with The Verge. He promised to release more information, including pricing details, closer to publication. The company had nothing to say today about the integration of the smart home Security System, but announced that it would support the Matter standard in progress. Simply put, Matter’s promise is that you’ll be able to buy the device and use it with a voice assistant of your choice and easily connect it to your existing home network.
