The ways Vivint keeps you safe from smart home hackers in Portland
Vivint makes installing your residential security and home automation devices effortless due to the benefits of convenient wireless networks. With that in mind, the avoidance of wiring could cause an increased anxiety about your home’s online security. Thankfully, Vivint home defense plans offer proven safety measures that will block hackers. The following are just a few ways Vivint protects you:
● Advanced encryption: Supposedly, 1024-bit encryption could be circumvented, but it would need an abundance of time and effort to bypass. The preponderance of hackers wouldn’t spend the time, energy, and money to take on this layer of protection.
● Hidden IP addresses:It’s hard to hack devices you can’t find. Vivint takes steps to keep your smart home hidden by disguising your IP address to outsiders.
● Keeps your security updated: Your security system should strive to be one step ahead of the hackers by sending out frequent updates to the software and firmware.
