Smart security: how to protect your smart home from external threats

With the advent of smart technologies, our homes have progressively transformed into increasingly "intelligent" spaces, meaning connected and automated. A smart home is a domestic environment where devices and systems communicate with the network to maximize efficiency and ensure greater comfort for the inhabitants.

In addition to increasing the comfort level and making many daily operations more efficient and accessible – controlling lights and thermostats, turning appliances on and off, opening and closing shutters and doors, and much more – the smart home also offers the undeniable advantage of contributing to the energy savings of the property. Intelligent energy management optimizes the use of numerous systems and devices.

In such an advanced scenario, which synergistically combines integration, modularity, convenience, customization, accessibility, and ease of use, what role does security play?

Smart home and security: a crucial combination

Ensuring the highest level of protection against external threats is essential in any domestic context, including the smart home.

In modern smart homes, the term "security" broadly refers to the set of measures and precautions adopted to protect the environment from potential threats, risks, or intrusions. This is a multidimensional concept that can be addressed from different perspectives: protecting privacy by ensuring that data collected by smart devices is managed securely; safeguarding against unauthorized access to smart systems; enhancing cybersecurity to protect smart devices from cyber attacks; and managing permissions for various smart home users – just to name a few!

Overall, security in smart homes aims to create a safer and more reliable environment, ensuring that adopting intelligent technologies does not pose additional risks to the residents' safety and privacy. Awareness of the chosen solutions' potential, implementing good practices, and using reliable devices are all crucial steps to create a secure and functional smart home.

For the home's residents, the primary concept of security remains the reduction of burglary and break-in risks. Thus, in addition to protecting smart systems from dangerous physical tampering (such as unauthorized deactivation), it's essential for smart home residents to know the correct strategies to deter intruders.
