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.

Because you'll need it to keep you energized while you install and setup the rest of your smart home! If your server is already online, or you have a portable storage device like a phone, you will need some kind of music receiver. It could be short-range like Bluetooth, or have longer range like WIFI. But the most important aspect is convenience - with music you want instant playback or listening becomes more stress than enjoyment. Look for a music receiver with always-on connection like Bluetooth, WIFI, or simply a 3.5mm analogue input cable ready to plug into. If all your music is on your server, again convenience reins supreme - choose a music player with fast and easy navigation to find your favorite song or playlist. Then, just add speakers! For TV, video, movies and games you will need some kind of screen - be it a computer screen, TV, projector or portable device like an iPad. But not all screens are created equal - some are smart, some aren't. If your screen is just a display alone, you will need something with a processor to retrieve and control your content. New "Smart" TV's have the necessary processor and software to work with most servers - if you have an older TV or just a screen you can buy a "Smart TV box" or "Dongle" that can do the same. Unlike Music, for video content you do need a good processor to display your content reliably, so choose a newer "Smart" TV or media player. Normally speaking, the newer it is, the longer you will be able to use it.

Some will argue that smart device security is unnecessary, since smart homes are unlikely targets for hackers compared to large databases of personal information, but that doesn't mean hackers aren't going to try to succeed. As addressed above, they already have. The devices may not hold large stores of information like the more common targets of bank or hospital databases, but they are a prime target for hackers or stalkers who want to infiltrate the home and life of a particular person. Celebrities and public figures will be particularly vulnerable, and the danger will only increase further once smart home devices become more mainstream.

Lylah Atkinson Door Handles, 2018-10-01 15:14:15. Lever operated door handles are very popular in European homes, as they are easier to use. This makes them suitable for elderly people, as this design of these handles does not require a tight grip; unlike the door knob, which may slip from the user's hand. The door knob is more commonly used in the United States because of its practicality and dual functions: it functions as a door latching mechanism and a lock at the same time. However, U.S. commercial and business establishments have woken up to the practicality of using the lever style of door handles. Aside from easy operation, they are less likely to jam. Further, the lever operated handles are more robust, and can withstand constant use.

Check the interior sides of the handle to find the screws. If you do not find the screws, then the door handle head should be popped-off using a flathead screwdriver. The screwdriver head should be inserted into the side slot and turned slightly. The cover on the handle will come-off exposing the screw. The screw can be turned and removed. This should be done for both sides of the handle - inside as well as outside. Then the screws on the strike plate are removed from the side of the door and then the latch is removed. In case of screen doors and storm doors, you can skip this step. The next step in door handle replacement is to take a measurement of the distance between the side of the door and the holes. This distance is called 'back set' and it can help you to make sure that the new handles will work properly with the door.
