Will your smart home become hacked in Detroit? The quick answer is "rarely”. A smart home plan from a tech-savvy installer like Vivint incorporates high-level encryption and additional cybersecurity safeguards to keep your system safe. Only advanced cyber criminals with a lot of time and patience will have any chance at success. Hackers usually go after easier targets and a home security system isn't typically on an experienced criminal’s radar.
How Vivint protects you from smart home hackers in Detroit
Vivint makes the installation of home security and home automation systems effortless due to the benefits of wireless technology. However, the avoidance of wires could cause an increased anxiety about your security from cyber criminals. Luckily, Vivint systems have proven safety measures that will block a hacker. The following are just a few ways Vivint deters criminal activity:
● Advanced encryption: Technically, 1024-bit encryption might be cracked, but it would need a massive amount of effort and time to solve. Most hackers wouldn’t spend the needed resources to take on this level of encryption.
● Masked IP addressing:It’s hard to hack devices you aren’t able to locate. Vivint takes steps to keep your smart home hidden by disguising your IP address to the rest of the world.
● Frequent updates: Your home defense package should strive to be ready for the latest threats by sending out frequent software and firmware updates.
