The ways Vivint safeguards you from smart home hackers in Columbus
Vivint makes the installation of security and home automation systems effortless through the use of wireless components. Consequently, the avoidance of wiring might equate to a bit more apprehension about cyber-security. Fortunately, Vivint components utilize proven safety measures designed to frustrate a hacker. Here are just a few ways Vivint keeps your devices safe:
● 1024-bit encryption: Theoretically, 1024-bit encryption could be circumvented, but it would require a massive amount of effort and time to solve. The preponderance of cyber criminals wouldn’t spend the resources necessary to get through this layer of protection.
● Hidden IP addresses:It’s certainly challenging to hack a system you are unable to detect. Vivint takes pride in keeping your smart home private by disguising the IP to outsiders.
● Frequent updates: Your home security equipment must remain ready for the latest threats by frequently releasing updates to the software and firmware.
