Today the customer has the luxury of controlling all the connected appliances from anywhere. In the IoT (Internet of Things) world, locks do not need keys, lights have become independent of installed switches, heating and cooling controls does not need your presence, home or business premises are always visible; no matter where you are. The remote scheduling and artificial intelligence is taking the usability of smart products to the next level. All this was possible through fast growing internet coverage, rampant use of smart phones, competitive pricing of smart products and increased customer base who wants smartness in every appliance they deal with.
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.
Internet of things is gaining ground at an explosive pace. Homes and businesses are joining the bandwagon. Tech companies are bringing new products to add convenience, comfort and savings to your dumb appliances. More and more people are realizing the benefits of smart products and the customer excitement is already rocketed.
