1. Have secured passwords for devices used to log into your security system. Change any default passwords and use combinations of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and special symbols. Avoid anything that can be easily guessed.
2. Secure your router with a strong password if you use a Wi-Fi network for home devices and/or your security system. Use the same guidelines from above.
3. Install antivirus software on computers that access your security system.
4. Limit devices that are used to access your security system. Use only at home devices such as computers and personally owned smart phones.
5. When arming your system never do so on public Wi-Fi. Using public Wi-Fi can increase your risk of hacking. Hackers use public networks to access personal information such as email addresses and passwords.
