The latest cloud technologies have changed many areas of our lives. The way homeowners protect their properties is one of the main areas that has advanced greatly thanks to this relatively new technology. Below are some of the main ways the cloud has advanced home security.

Cloud Based Security Systems Are Always Available

The information and footage stored in the cloud is always available. Security video footage and other items can be viewed whenever you wish and you can easily access footage that has been captured in the past on a wide range of devices including smartphones.

This also means you can access your security systems, provided by companies like TBOTECH, from any location in the world. It’s the ideal solution for homeowners who are away from home a lot, when you’re at work or when you’re away on vacation.


In the past, many security systems were cumbersome, awkward to use and homeowners required certain pieces of equipment such as a video monitor and storage devices. However, this is no longer the case because everything you need is in the cloud. In most instances, the only equipment you need is the alarm or camera you use to capture footage or to detect unusual behavior in your home.

Your Security System is More Secure

Unlike other security systems, security systems stored in the cloud are more reliable and secure. The fact that there is little or no equipment required means security footage and other information cannot be lost, damaged or interfered with by other people, so long as you deal with a reputable company.

You Have More Storage

Cloud based systems, combined with other advanced video and IT technologies make it much easier to store huge amounts of data and footage that you can monitor and review whenever you wish. This is particularly useful if you need to monitor a number of different properties or there is nobody in your home for long periods of time.

Cloud Based Security Systems Are Regularly Updated

Owners of outdated security systems often had to replace their systems or upgrade them on a regular basis, which was costly and inconvenient. The remote nature of a cloud based system means you don’t have to worry about upgrading anything. This work is done for you by the support staff that work for the company that provides your security system.

Integration with Devices and Other Systems

As mentioned earlier, a wide range of devices can be used to access your security footage and data in the cloud. The cloud technologies used today can also be easily integrated with a wide range of IT systems, mobile technologies and devices so that you get instant notifications about issues that affect your property, as well as having more opportunities to monitor your home better.

Thanks to the latest cloud based security systems, it’s never been as easy to keep your home safe and secure. These systems are much more flexible and give you many more options than traditional security systems and still manage to be an effective way to protect your home.
