The market for modern Indian art has remained buoyant since the introduction of major auction sales twenty five years ago, and last year, an abstract landscape by one of India’s Progressive Artists’ Group sold at a New York auction for a record-breaking $4.5 million. Of course, any carefully chosen art collection, no matter what its monetary value, is precious to its owner. Even though you may not be in possession of a multi-million dollar classic piece, by installing or updating your smart home security, you will be reassured that your collection is safeguarded, not just from contamination within the home, but from damage or theft by house-breaking intruders.
Protection Against Breaches Of Security
Last year in Mumbai alone, over 2,000 cases of night break-ins were recorded, with cases of theft rising by almost 60% from the previous year. Fortunately, with the availability of increasingly sophisticated, affordable and easy to install smart home security systems, it has become easier to protect your home against break ins and theft. In a smart and connected home, each security component can be linked via an internet-connected hub or controlled by smartphone apps, so it is equally important to ensure the cyber security of your system. By creating a strong, unique password, and changing it regularly, you can considerably reduce the risk of hackers breaching your home’s smart systems.
Instantaneous Intruder Alerts
An increasingly popular element of home security is Alexa Guard, a feature in the Alexa app which can be programmed to alert you to the sound of breaking glass, the noise of a smoke alarm, or, if you have them installed, a wireless tag alarm connected to an individual piece of artwork. Having received an alert, you can then use the app to remotely check for suspicious activity. This feature and other house alarm systems can work alone quite effectively without associated hardware. However, they can also be easily integrated into full security systems, and connected to a number of other compatible smart home products.

Round The Clock Monitoring
Even the most basic smart security system offers motion detection, which will alert you to intruders, and door and window alarms that will deter them from entering further into your home. Depending on the system, other additional and more sophisticated features can be added as necessary. If you are away from home for long periods of time, flood and freeze alarms mean that you can arrange for your valuable belongings to be rescued at the earliest opportunity. For a monthly fee, some smart security systems can be professional monitored 24/7, giving you reassurance that your artwork is safe at all times.
Regardless of its market price, you will want to ensure the safety of your precious art collection. Up to date, smart security systems will not only alert you to any risk to your home, but also deter intruders from trespassing on your property in the first place. No matter where you are, you can be reassured that your artwork is protected at all times.
