The “internet of things” is a concept that refers to any object or device with an internet connection. It can refer to everything from smart refrigerators and thermostats, to connected cameras in homes and cars.
Security companies are using the IoT by connecting sensors on doors and windows directly into their network so they know when someone opens a door or window at night without permission. This way, if anything does happen during the day while no one’s home, there will be evidence already waiting for them.
A big concern about adopting these new technologies is whether businesses have enough technical knowledge—or manpower—to keep up with the latest trends without incurring costs too high for them manage independently. But now, with the access to a team of experts that can advise on all things technical and provide ongoing support for these systems, it’s easy for small-business owners to make an investment in tech security without having to worry about whether they have the knowledge or manpower.
