LG has announced a new home automation hub that it thinks will do better than its rivals. It's called Smart Security.

The hub serves as both a hub for the smart home, with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave and Zigbee connectivity, and a security camera that is supported by security company ADT.

The camera is equipped to notify the user when it senses an unusual movement or change of temperature in the user's home, however, by subscribing to ADT's Canopy for $20 per month, users will also get all-day monitoring and a dedicated response team. Basically, if there's a break-in at your home, you'll be able to get help quickly. The video feed from the device will be streamable from the app, too.

The device is also able to detect temperature and humidity and can sense the user's preference for both. Users will get a notification if it falls outside of their preferred range.

LG hasn't really discussed details about the pricing or availability of the device, however, it has said that it should hit the U.S. sometime in early 2016. The company will also be releasing the SmartThinQ hub, which does less in the way of security and more in the way of home automation.
