(NC) Advancements of modern technology are making us safer. Not only can new forms of password protection help to safeguard our digital files and documents, advances in voice and facial recognition create a heightened degree of security for our devices and homes.
Here are some of the newest advancements keeping us protected at home and on the go:
Smart home systems are ever-evolving, providing heightened security and peace of mind. With smart locks, you no longer need to hand out keys to the dogwalker or after-school sitter; instead, you can unlock and lock the door for them while you’re out.
Advancements in security systems also give you the ability to monitor your home in real-time with live video feeds, smoke and CO detectors, control of home lighting and the option to speak with someone at your door through a doorbell, from anywhere in the world.
On your devices
Apps are available for just about everything these days, from banking and investments to security systems. But what happens if your device is lost or stolen? With savvy features such as fingerprint, facial and iris recognition software for phone and app access, you’re the only one who can open your accounts.
In your vehicle
Enhanced safety measures through driver assistance technologies are a driving force in the automobile industry. Many new cars are equipped with features such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, blind spot warning, rear traffic warning and even parking assistance.
However, much as these technologies can help, they can’t replace you as a driver and don’t always work as expected in bad weather. To get the most out of these tools, consult the owner’s manual, the manufacturer’s website or canada.ca/driverassistance
