And once I finally had the quote, he explained the purpose behind each device I was receiving and what the installation might entail. He took extra time to help me weigh whether I needed home automation or not — and I’m almost positive it wasn’t scripted. ”Abode provides one of the most robust displays of third party integrations in this lineup. The company offers a decent amount of its own proprietary devices, but you’re certainly not limited to Abode specific products alone. An Abode system can communicate with a slew of Z Wave and Zigbee compatible smart lights and locks, light switches and dimmers, Nest products, IFTTT commands, and, of course, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Put simply: If you want the freedom to lock/unlock your door or turn on/off the lights all in one place from the Abode app, this system is definitely worth a look. Installing the Ring Alarm took less than twenty minutes and was a complete breeze. We didn’t encounter any issues with device connectivity or placement, because, frankly, Ring tells you exactly where to install everything and how to do it on the app. You’ll start by connecting your WiFi to the base station via the Ring app — from there, Ring instructs you to pull the plastic tabs off the backs of the contact sensors and motion detectors, which automatically activates the products for use. You can customize your settings for each device within the app, including how sensitive you want your motion detector to be and how often you want to receive alerts for every time someone opens or closes the door.

If we need to access the home page of our blogs, we certainly need a password in order to do so. In so many cases, we often find ourselves having difficulty creating and storing passwords and this is exactly what hackers and identity thieves are depending on; our inability to keep safe and secure our passwords. You see, the creation and storing of passwords are becoming more and more of a primary concern to us and a primary target for hackers and identity thieves. There are really two parts to password security; the creation of a password that cannot be easily hacked, and the storing of the password itself. With the need to create and store multiple passwords these days, we need to find ways to become more creative when creating passwords as well as storing them in safe spots; where only you and you alone will know where to find them. I'd like to give you a few healthy tips when it comes to password security. Do not use the same password for all your needs. Do not use birth dates and names of family members or pets. Use passwords that are a combination of numbers and letters. Store passwords in places that can easily be remembered. Have backup copies of files that contain your passwords.
