Smart Home. Monday , September 03rd , 2018 - 09:52:58 AM
New technologies that allow users to control important home devices, such as appliances and security systems, from their phones also give creative hackers plenty of opportunity to hijack and glean information from these "smart" devices. It sounds like the plot of a science fiction movie (and in fact, it has been) but these devices have surprisingly few security features and can give over a shocking amount of information and control to those who might wish to do their users harm.
There's nothing wrong with using smart home technology to help users manage their homes and their lives more efficiently, but it is irresponsible of companies to leave such a gaping security flaw in their products, and their consumers deserve to be aware of the true hacking dangers of the products they're buying and bringing into their homes.
It's pretty easy to get started doing things like replacing electrical plugs, or changing the locks on a door. Some things can be more complicated such as creating a home network, or programming a network bridge to communicate with all your devices. If you're tech savvy it won't take long at all to pick up on the things that need to be done in order to get started, but if wireless networking and security don't come easily then be sure to look into how things are set up and how difficult they are to manage when choosing what systems might be right for your house. I'll try to provide as much info as possible on future blogs.
