Smart security systems, thermostats, lights, and appliances that talk to one another and controlled by smartphone apps make homes more efficient and the lives of homeowners more convenient. As the smart home automation industry continuously grows, so is the demand for the highest level of security. Homeowners want to ensure that by using smart home devices, they are not opening their house and themselves to unauthorised access.
It is important that the market is able to address the security concerns of users. Otherwise, consumer confidence in their smart home can cause them to switch between device carriers or abandon their system together.
The good thing is that the market is responding to provide consumers the cyber protection they require. One of the companies that have been in this business for quite some time is Z-Wave. It has invested the most focus on cyber protection and recently introduced the new security framework, Z-Wave Security 2 (S2). Z-Wave has always used AES-128 levels of encryption. The system prevents hackers from making an unauthorised access by eliminating application layers and replacing them with an entire protocol. This gives consumers peace of mind.
