5 steps to create a secure smart home network
With the increasing popularity of smart home technology, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your smart home network is secure. A breach in your home network can result in unauthorised access to your personal information and data, as well as control over your connected devices.
Euroroute Network Solutions is the authorised distributor for premium smart home network devices from the renowned European manufacturer AVM Fritz!, offering customers a trusted source for top-quality smart home networking solutions.
1. Use a secure router:
Your router is the backbone of your home network, so it’s important to choose one that offers strong security features. The AVM FRITZ!Box range of routers include WPA3 encryption, which provides advanced security protection for your network.
2. Change the default login credentials:
Many routers come with easily guessable default login credentials, so it’s important to change them as soon as you set up your router. Choose a strong and unique username and password to prevent unauthorised access to your network.
3. Enable firewalls:
Firewalls help to protect your network from unauthorised access and cyber attacks. FRITZ!Box ensures secure browsing thanks to the built-in firewall that is Wi-Fi protected with an individual network key upon delivery. It also provides guest access that lets friends and family access the internet but not your home network.
4. Regularly update your firmware:
AVM Fritz frequently release firmware updates to improve security and fix vulnerabilities in their products. Euroroute NSL work with Cloud ACS provider AVsystem that allows mass scheduled firmware updates.
5. Use strong passwords for your connected devices:
Just like with your router, it’s important to use strong and unique passwords for all of your connected devices. This will prevent unauthorised access to those devices and the sensitive information they contain.
Data and network security
In addition to these 5 steps, it’s also important to be vigilant when it comes to smart home security. Keep an eye out for any suspicious activity on your network and consider using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to encrypt your internet traffic when using public Wi-Fi.
Smart home technology has the potential to make our lives easier and more convenient, but it’s important to make sure that our networks are secure. By following these 5 recommended steps from Euroroute, you can ensure that your smart home network is protected and that your personal information and data are secure.
