One additional way to integrate security into your life is by adding it to the device you use most: your phone. According to Pew Research,

“64% of American adults now own a smartphone of some kind, up from 35% in the spring of 2011. Smartphone ownership is especially high among younger Americans, as well as those with relatively high income and education levels”

You use it to check the weather. You use it to connect with your friends. Why not use to for your home?
