The idea of owning a digital home is no longer a distant dream. With technology rapidly advancing on that route, it is seemingly possible that you just might get to shift into your swanky digital abode pretty soon. However, while you are looking at incorporating the best devices and software from competent brands, what you mustn’t forget is the security ambiguity that surrounds digital homes.
Here are a few considerations for you to ponder over while you are designing your dream digital home…
Insecurities with your WI-FI Network
This is the first risk that can enter your digital home. Since everything will be enabled through the Internet and your WI-FI connection, a simple loophole in the network could give easy access to e-threats to manipulate and take control over your home. So, be it your neighbors, thieves, nosey relatives, or the nudging friend, you will have to secure your network and all devices in the network from everyone. And if at all one is able to enter into that secured zone, all your web-enabled smart devices will be at a risk of being controlled by someone else, till you are aware of it.
Hackers and intruders
As is the case with online security, there will be several individuals, companies and communities working on methods to crack into wireless networks even miles away from where they are operating from. And also, since digital information can be easily sourced and manipulated, your home will be at a constant risk of hackers invading your privacy. From the digital security camera to the installed thermostat and from the digital garage door to the electrical circuits – nothing will seem too far away from the prying eyes of intruders.
Misplacement of controlling devices
This is another threat that will loom over your smart home. Since you will be able to control all the installed devices at home through your mobile device, losing it or misplacing it could mean that you are effortlessly handing over the locker keys to whoever is waiting to grab it!
Yes, the situation is scary and does require you to meticulously plan the security aspect of your smart home. While there is still time before you totally converted your home into a smart home, it is nevertheless high time you started to think about the above points and accordingly devised ways to manage the same.
