Will your smart home get hacked in Tulsa? The simple response is ”almost never”. A smart home defense from a tech-savvy installer like Vivint uses advanced encryption and other techniques like IP address masking to deter criminal activity. Only a few advanced online offenders with a lot of time and patience will succeed. Hackers typically look for less secure networks and a home security system isn't typically on the smart hacker's radar.
The ways Vivint protects you from smart home hackers in Tulsa
Vivint makes installing your home security and home automation systems simple through the use of convenient wireless networks. With that in mind, the lack of wiring might equate to a bit more apprehension about your security from cyber criminals. Fortunately, Vivint components utilize proven safety measures designed to frustrate hackers. Here are just a few ways Vivint deters criminal activity:
● Advanced encryption: Supposedly, 1024-bit encryption can be hacked, but it would require a massive amount of effort and time to get through. Most thieves are unlikely to allocate the time, energy, and money to get through this level of encryption.
● Disguise your IP address:It’s certainly challenging to hack a system you aren’t able to locate. Vivint takes steps to keep your smart home hidden by masking your IP address to outsiders.
● Keeps your security updated: Your home security equipment needs to be ready for the latest threats by sending out frequent patches and updates to firmware and software.
