Smart Home

IoT security is a crucial concern in the context of smart homes. With the increasing number of interconnected devices, such as smart thermostats, door locks, and security cameras, the vulnerability to cyber threats rises significantly.

Protecting the smart home ecosystem requires robust security measures, including strong authentication protocols, encryption, and regular software updates. By prioritizing IoT security, homeowners can enjoy the convenience and benefits of a smart home while ensuring the protection of their privacy and digital assets.

Connected to a smart home controller, all smart devices can be managed centrally. The most popular example is the smart speaker. As of today, approximately 131.4 million households worldwide are using a smart speaker. By 2027 it is estimated that that number will reach 335.3 million.

In general, anything having access to electricity in homes, office buildings and public buildings, can be part of smart home. Examples are: heating systems, light switches, kitchen, and household equipment (such as vacuum cleaning robots, fridges, dishwashers, washing machines, vacuum cleaners), electric shutters, garage, and front doors.

The central capability of smart homes is remote management and automation adjusted to the residents’ individual lifestyles or the usage patterns of employees and visitors. This provides maximum comfort as well as huge potential to improve sustainability. Furthermore, in terms of security, smart homes provide decisive advantages as long as their digital infrastructure is consistently secured and protected against unauthorized access, manipulation, or data theft.
