Daniella Mccray. Smart Home. September 01st , 2018.
What are your DIY strengths, plumbing, electrical, networking (internet, wireless, bluetooth) and what is your overall objective? Are you interested in a Smart Home with Smart Appliances and systems that give you updates, keep track of your utilities, food, turn on TVs and stereos at certain times, touch screens that allow you to program lighting or interactive features around the house. Remote access via an app or the internet, security monitoring with cameras or just occupancy sensors, or any alarm features that you might want for peace of mind. With all that in mind take a look around your house and start to put together an idea of what you want to accomplish in achieving your Smart Home ideas. Prioritize what you want to do first and whether or not you can do it yourself.
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.
Many of these vulnerabilities are impossible to fix because they were built right into the device when developers and engineers neglected to think about cybersecurity. That means that without altering the router they use to connect to the internet, they are completely unprotected from hackers.
