Internet-connected 'smart' devices are dunces about security

Internet-connected ‘smart’ devices are dunces about security

These days, it’s possible to use your phone — and sometimes just your voice — to control everything from your TV to your lights, your thermostat and shades, even your car or medical device. (At least, once you have gadgets that can listen.)

Miami commissioners vote to keep Ultra Music Festival

It is a great idea to do business with a security company that has 24-hour monitoring. If something happens in the middle of the night, you want to be able to get in touch with someone rather quickly. Waiting around for a response will only give robbers the chance to harm you.

Hearing set in photographer's lawsuit accusing Justin Bieber security of assault

Make sure your security company explains how to properly alarm your system, and use this feature.

Lock up your home, even if you are around. Many people think that their neighborhood is the safest out there. They’ll leave their doors unlocked all day (and night long) without a second thought! This is inviting trouble. Make it a habit to lock those doors (and windows) even if you’re home. It’s probably the most important basic thing you can do for your family’s overall safety.
