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.
Good-guy hackers have proven again and again that they can hack into smart devices. Not only are they playfully scaring users by becoming digital poltergeists, but on a more serious note, they have found that they could orchestrate break-ins and harvest valuable personal data.
However, there is another, more present danger. Smart devices will help hackers become more successful at hacking other targets. A common tactic of hackers is to add malicious code to a website that will invite itself into your device and invisibly enslave it to work for a "botnet," which is a connected network of devices all working to hack something else. Internet of Things devices would be a perfect target, since they're seldom disconnected from the internet and their security is rarely considered.
