Is It Safe To Be Smart? The Security In Home Automation – Huffington Post
We all like to think of our homes as a safe haven. The place where we go to after an exhausting day at work, where we lay our kids down to sleep at night knowing that they are going to be just there when we wake up. It is important that we keep our homes safe, and we do everything in our power to ensure the same. Automated lights that can be toggled with our iPhone, fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to warn us of incoming danger, cameras to keep a pair of eyes upon us as we sleep, there is so much that technology has to offer in terms of safeguarding our fortress. However, such efficient techniques of home automation also come with a certain amount of vulnerability. Luckily for us, such vulnerabilities can be plugged, leaving us free to enjoy the myriad advantages of home automation.
