Okay everyone, we have definitely jumped deep into the future. I'm not entirely certain when it happened (maybe when we started using robots to fight our wars) but it's definitely in full swing now. We just received an announcement from the folks behind eSecure, a new iPhone app from the home security provider Protection One. This app allows your phone to sync up with your home security system and lets you control your domicile remotely.

Protection One says that users will be able to arm and disarm their security system, and receive text alerts and real-time updates if their house is broken into. That's pretty much what you'd expect from this sort of app. Here's where things get awesome; using eSecure, customers will also be able to register if a door is opened, detect carbon monoxide levels, and monitor the contents of their liquor or medicine cabinet, as well as any other 'sensitive' areas.

I'm sure my parents would've been much more inclined to leave me home alone if they could look after the liquor cabinets and medicine cabinets remotely. Being able to let in or refuse people from your home while lounging in the Bahamas also sounds pretty sweet. Worth the cost of an expensive home security system? That's up to you, but you can't deny the level of control we're able to exercise over our world these days is astonishing. This new app is currently available free to all customers of Protection One.
