Connect everything to Alexa?

Unread post by Ron » Tue Jun 05, 2018 8:36 am

Alexa can listen to your voice order, turn on/off the light, air conditioner, contact friends etc. It is so easy.
But the news about Alexa Listening To Conversations and shared it decreased many people's enthusiasm of smart home.
The more kits you connect to the hub, the more privicy may be exposed. It is still not time to connect everything to Alexa.
For all internet of things, there are 4 aspects needs security increase.
1. Increase the device reliability, for example, improving the accuracy of biometrics module.
2. Increase network security. Enable data encryption.
3. Increase system security and database security.
4. Increase application, management operation system security.
The standard of IOT security is needed.

We have to watch on our wallet carefully. We need to scan virus on PC and mobile everyday. Not just lock the door well everyday. We have too many things to do now to ensure our security. Otherwise, virus may have in your mobile and can listen in your conversation, peep your privacy.

The Electric mortise lock circuit has switch signal output. It can be wired to alarm system and when the door is open, it triggers alarm.
Access control or intercom has relay contact output as well. So, access control system, door lock system can connect with alarm system.

Can I install combustible gas detector by myself

Can I install combustible gas detector by myself?
You can install the combustible gas detector by yourself at correct location. (According to detected gas type and instruction manual).
But if the gas detector is with solenoid valve or manipulator to control gas source, then it needs to be installed by gas source company. The gas pipeline is not allowed changing by yourself. Check instruction for gas detector installation.
