Smart home automation is a growing industry that is expected to become a £90billion business in the next five years.
More and more homeowners are joining the bandwagon due to the convenience that this technology brings. Unfortunately, several studies have shown that industry growth has been more important than maintaining adequate security measures.
In fact, a massive internet breach of Dyn, a cloud-based internet performance management company, has placed millions of homeowners at risk of hacking due to the use of manufacturer’s standard password.
Thus, experts always recommend to use a unique and complex password by combining letters and numbers. A strong password is your first line of defense against any cyber attack.
Also, when considering home automation, consider the features of each system and your long-term goals to eliminate the need to purchase too many devices that are unable to communicate with each other. If possible, go straight ahead and invest in a smart home automation hub to save time and make the whole process easier and convenient for you.
Furthermore, invest in cloud protection and secure your router to further ensure your safety. Choose companies that have unparalleled commitment to security and providing customers with adequate protection. These simple steps afford you the kind of security you need within the automated home you dream of.
