Get Smart With Smart Lightbulbs
Smart lightbulbs allow you to control them, even when you’re not home. Technology nowadays is impressive, in that you can explore a European city and activate your lights at home to make it look like you’re in your kitchen. You can also program them to a set schedule, so they turn on at 8 PM every evening and off at 6 AM every morning, though this isn’t the best tactic. That way, it’s very easy to make your home look occupied. But leaving the lights on isn’t the only way to deter a criminal. If a criminal watch your house for a few days, they can predict when the smart lightbulbs will turn on. Using these lightbulbs in addition to many other tactics is the best way to deter crime. Most break-ins occur during the daytime, from 10 AM to 3 PM, because that’s when most people are at work. A lightbulb won’t help during the day. The key to a successful lightbulb deterrent is to make it look natural and not on a timer, which is why accessing lights through an app is the best way to deter a burglar (ADT).
