Keep a check on everything at home. Install home entry products to secure your entry points like keyless door and smart doorbell cameras.
Make use of smart lights You can stay safe if you make your home look occupied.
Don’t forget to install modern security cameras in your garage, near your shed, lawn, swimming pool area, deck, driveway and backyard etc.

I agree on the security cameras. I didn't even think of it as turning my home "smart", it's more like prioritizing our home's safety. Ours is an arlo pro and has two way audio, with mobile app. I find it a bit expensive but I think security cameras usually have good deals during black friday, you can check that out if you want. What I don't like much about it though is the batteries. Now, we re-charge every month, which is way too soon compared to its 4months duration previously.

In my opinion, smart camera is one of the most important devices to secure outdoor areas. Besides, you may need different sensors that help you detect motion, vibration and sound. I suggest Xiaomi and Aqara (good quality at low price, that's why I chose). The brands have a whole home automation system. You don't have to use those inconvenient third part platforms to control.
