How smart is your home? A large percentage of homes have some type of smart device in their homes already, since they have gotten a lot cheaper and easier to use. Having your whole home connected can bring many benefits. You can watch your home from your home through a surveillance system, you can control the temperature remotely, and you can turn on and off your lights whenever you want to, just using your voice. While all of these functions might sound tempting to you, it is important that having everything in your home connected could also pose a risk to your safety. If you were to purchase devices that don’t have the proper security, you could open up your network to hackers. They could get access to personal information, gain control over your devices, or cause harm in other ways. If you do choose to have a smart home, it is important that you are aware of these risks and what you need to do to protect yourself and your family.
