Is Your Home Security System Really Secure?

Smart Technology Gives Us Advanced Security Features, But You Still Need to Practice Good Cybersecurity Habits

Is Your Home Security System Really Secure?

Not so many years ago, many home security systems were reasonably straightforward. You had an alarm system, some window and door sensors, and perhaps glass breakage and motion sensors in some areas. You also had a control panel for arming and disarming your system.

Fast forward to today, and there is a bevy of options for keeping homes secure. Video doorbells and smart cameras with two-way communication lead the way in enabling people to keep a constant eye on their homes. Add to that a broad array of sensors that can detect too much heat, water leaks, and other dangers and alert you the minute something is wrong.

Not only that, but smart locks enable easy remote and conditional access to the home. You can give someone temporary access by tapping a button on your smartphone and unlocking your front door. If you forget to close the garage door, another tap can close it – or open it for a delivery while you’re away.

But while all this technology gives us many options, the connectivity presents its own security challenges. Read on to learn more about protecting the home security system in your Bay Area home.
