Could your smart home get hacked in Nashville? The short answer is "rarely”. A smart home plan from a tech-savvy installer like Vivint protects with high-level encryption and other techniques like IP address masking to deter criminal activity. Only an advanced hacker with plenty of time, patience, and luck will succeed. Hackers usually go after easier targets and a home security system isn't typically on the smart hacker's attack plan.
The ways Vivint keeps you safe from smart home hackers in Nashville
Vivint makes installing your security and home automation components simple due to the benefits of wireless components. Consequently, the lack of wires can lead to a bit more apprehension about your security from cyber criminals. Fortunately, Vivint home defense plans utilize powerful protections that help thwart a hacker. Here are samples of how Vivint deters criminal activity:
● Advanced encryption: Theoretically, 1024-bit encryption could be circumvented, but it would require a massive amount of effort and time to solve. The vast majority of cyber criminals are unlikely to devote the time, energy, and money to take on this layer of protection.
● Masked IP addressing:You can’t hack devices you aren’t able to locate. Vivint attempts to keep your smart home isolated by masking internet addresses to the rest of the world.
● Frequent updates: Your home defense package must remain one step ahead of the hackers by issuing consistent updates to the software and firmware.
