5 Steps to Keep Your Smart Home Safe

Ensure that your smart home is safe from potential threats with these steps.

Create a Separate Network

Have a separate wifi network for your smart devices to run on, which can be done without having to purchase an additional router.

Review Privacy Settings

Do research to get a better sense of what the manufacturer or service provider has access to.

Change Default Passwords

When you get a new smart product, be sure to change the default password.

Install the Latest Updates

Software updates include improved security features, so set your smart products to automatically update.

Consider a VPN

When using public networks to control your smart products, use a VPN, virtual private network, to encrypt your connection.
