Will your smart home become hacked in Columbus? The simple response is ”not likely”. A smart home plan from a tech-savvy installer like Vivint uses high-level encryption and other techniques like IP address masking to keep your system safe. Only advanced cyber criminals with plenty of time, patience, and luck will have any chance at success. Hackers typically go after less secure networks and a home security system isn't typically on an experienced criminal’s attack plan.
The ways Vivint keeps you safe from smart home hackers in Columbus
Vivint makes installing your security and home automation components simple by using convenient wireless networks. Consequently, the absence of wires can lead to more concerns about your security from cyber criminals. Fortunately, Vivint systems offer effective safeguards that will block a hacker. The following are some examples of how Vivint deters criminal activity:
● High-level encryption standards: Theoretically, 1024-bit encryption can be hacked, but it would require a really long time to solve. The preponderance of hackers are not going to spend the time, energy, and money to get through this level of encryption.
● Disguise your IP address:It’s hard to hack devices you are unable to detect. Vivint takes pride in keeping your smart home hidden by shielding the IP to anyone outside of your network.
● Keeps your security updated: Your home security equipment needs to be one step ahead of the hackers by frequently releasing software and firmware updates.
