Singapore has a low crime rate — 3 burglary cases per 100,000 population — but low crime doesn't mean no crime. Having some form of home security is often better than none. And while you likely won't need to use your camera for this purpose, a security camera is also useful to see what your kids are up to while you're at work, or whether your pets are behaving well. Of course, there's more to home security than just having cameras, perhaps a sensor to monitor air quality. Knowing that you're breathing in clean air will put you at ease, too. Here then are five gadgets to keep your home secure.
Arlo Pro 5S 2K
The Arlo Pro 5S 2K Spotlight Camera is one of the best home security cameras for consumers. It sports all the features you'd want in these devices, such as smart, motion- and audio-activated alerts, crisp 2K HDR video, and built-in spotlight and siren. And they all work great as usual. But the new model also improves the battery life, adds dual-band Wi-Fi support, and uses a revamped app.
Ecovacs Deebot T10+
If you're wondering how a robot vacuum cleaner can help keep your house secure, then wonder no longer. The Ecovacs Deebot T10+ packs a camera, and can patrol your home. You can also remotely control the vacuum to scout around the house. While these security features are handy, the T10+ really shines at keeping your house clean with its Auto Empty Station. It can even mop your floors.
TP-Link Tapo C225 Pan/Tilt AI Home Security Wi-Fi Camera
There's a lot to unpack with the TP-Link Tapo C225 Pan/Tilt AI Home Security Wi-Fi Camera. It's chock-full of features, including AI-powered ones that can distinguish between people, pets, and vehicles, as well as a tracking feature that follows a person within its field of view. And it's pretty affordable at S$95 for what it offers.
The Sensibo Elements is basically an air sensor, able to detect total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) in the air, PM2.5, CO2, ethanol, humidity, and temperature. It can work with other Sensibo products to turn on your AC or the Sensibo Pure air purifier. You'll feel better knowing the air you're breathing is free from toxic substances, yeah?
Arlo Essential Video Doorbell Wire-Free
Arlo's Essential Video Doorbell Wire-Free adds a rechargeable battery, making it more accessible for homeowners that lack the electrical hardwiring required for its previous doorbell. Like the older model, which is still being produced, the Essential doorbell's video camera offers a squarish 1:1 aspect ratio with more vertical field of view. This means users can easily view packages left on their doorstep. You'll need the Arlo app (for iOS and Android) to set up the doorbell. No hub is required, unlike some older Arlo cameras. Perfect for seeing who's at your door remotely.
