New generation of home security systems in high demand

Austin, TX (KTNV) -- The latest generation of home security systems are in high demand.

They're called "Smart Homes" and they give homeowners a lot more peace of mind.

That's because cameras, lights and locks can all be controlled from your smartphone.

"You don't have to worry about leaving a key under the mat, you can now actually give them access from the push of a button on your smartphone," explained Nikko Nunez, Protect America.

You can even set your house alarm from miles away.

Experts said the home automation industry is exploding from $16.9 billion in 2011, to predictions of more than $35 billion by 2016.
