How to Keep Your Internet-Connected Home Safe and Secure

“From smart thermostats like the Nest to always-on security cameras, every year we add more appliances and gadgets to our homes that connect to the internet. Some offer great features like remote monitoring, others use data to help you optimize your home and save money. Even so, anything connected to the internet is at risk of being hacked. Here’s how to keep all of that new gear safe.

You may not think about it, but constantly-connected devices like thermostats, NAS devices, TVs, kitchen appliances, and home automation systems pass data to and from the internet all the time. We call all of these gadgets the “internet of things,” but like other internet-connected devices, they’re vulnerable to the rest of the world. That means you need to take a few precautions before you set them up.” – Lifehacker
