Know More About Smart Home System and Smart Guard AKITA!

Hello Tech Lovers,
Looking to make your home just a little smarter? While still in its infancy, the number of smart home products—devices that let you control your lighting, thermostat, or even your crock pot from your smartphone—is rapidly growing. From GE to Belkin to Home Depot, tons of products and whole ecosystems want to help you control your home via a single iOS or Android app. 

Trends in consumer tech point increasingly towards a future where our homes are inhabited by an ecosystem of interconnected 'internet of things' devices, ostensibly controlled via a smart assistant which we can address via voice—Google Assistant, Alexa, Bixby, etc. 


There are many reasons you might want a smart home system. Aside from the sheer joy of feeling like a futuristic wizard controlling appliances with the sound of your voice, they can do wonders when it comes to saving time and energy in your day to day life. The AI-enabled smart assistants can be fantastically effective at responding to your needs, but in order to do that, they have to get to know you. Intimately. And, well, all that personal information has to go somewhere. 

AI companies are investigating privacy issues as well as other ethical concerns, but in the meantime continue to push out products. All the while the general public still needs to learn a lot about artificial intelligence. The potential for corporations to gather data on us through smart home tech still puts off those of us who don't feel there are adequate protection. Sure, you can secure your home against hackers, but the manufacturer is a different story. 


Anyone concerned about the privacy and security of their smart home system may be interested in a new piece of hardware called AKITA which has been specifically designed to help protect your smart home set up from the Internet of Things hacks and unwanted snooping. AKITA acts as a watchdog to your smart home providing alerts when anything untoward is detected.

What does the Akita do? Simply plug this little device into a LAN port on your router and the Akita will scan your network for any unusual activity and immediately shut things down if it notices any hackers or malicious programs running on your network. It will then notify you that an attempt was made. You wouldn't want hackers to access any of the sensitive information stored on your connected devices, so Akita does all the policing for you passively. You won't know it's there until it springs into action and prevents a hacking attempt.
