The Worst-Case Scenario 

Imagine someone talking to your children through your security cameras, baby monitor, or video doorbell, or having your surveillance footage accessed without your consent. Once hacked, footage and login credentials can be stolen and uploaded anywhere hackers want to send your data. Also, malware can corrupt the master boot records – the essential files on the internal hardware that run your devices – of your connected devices and security camera system, making them unusable by anyone but the perpetrators. 

For cameras with two-way microphone functionality, like a Ring or Nest camera, it’s possible for someone outside of your home to speak to your family. Lacking protections on your home network and security system, your home is penetrable to cyber criminals, and this is every homeowner’s worst nightmare. 

 

Protect Yourself 

Smart technologies often come with easily hackable default passwords, so it’s important to utilize more robust security measures when connecting devices to your home network. First, your network needs encryption, and a strong network administrator password should be used. Strong two-factor identification logins can lower the chance of potential cyberhacking by making it more difficult to login to your devices. 

Secondly, ensure your security software receives timely system updates. You can guarantee this happens regularly by utilizing one of our service plans to oversee your device connections remotely.
