On a budget, one cannot expect impervious defenses from hackers or casual snoops. But you must spend some time thinking about security. Step one is to change any default device passwords. Step two is to limit access to your private files from people who don't need it (should as guests). Step three is to install and maintain antivirus software and firewalls on your server andor other devices in the network. Finally, private information should be securing by encrypting it so only the password holder can open it. Consider encrypting all the secure files on your server such as financial and personal information, digital document scans etc. On the flip side, your smart home can be a security asset, not just a risk. With your network ready, LAN or WIFI enabled cameras can be plugged in around your home and setup to stream video to the server. Finally, physically secure your server. It should be kept somewhere safe from damage and thievery.
Lighting and lighting controller systems are the most important parts of home automation. Basically a light controller system can detect a motion within a closed area and can turn on the lights automatically. You can think that when you enter a room the lighting control can turn on the lights as an example. This is a very sample and a basic task for a home automation application. It is also easy to find sensors that are capable of managing such functionality without any difficulty in the market.
A smart controller should be more intelligent and at least it should turn down the lights step by step. An other sample for a smart lighting control process is adjusting the power of the light adjusted to the time of the day. For example if you wake up midnight and go to kitchen the clever control should be able to turn on the lights with a weak lightening thinking that you may not want a high power of light. One of the most important tasks of a smart light automation is its ability to self-protect the house against burglars when you are not at the house. Yes, a smart light controlling system can be very helpful for improving your houses security. A smart home should be able to turn on and turn off the lights in the house randomly. This will make other people think that there are people in the house.
