Keeping Your Guardian Security System Safe from Hackers

When installing your Guardian Alarm System, be sure to follow the best practices below to ensure that your home network is protected properly.

Research the Device

If you are planning to add 3rd party smart home devices to your Guardian Protection Services Security System, it is important to follow recommended guidelines to minimize the chances of being hacked. First, it is best to purchase equipment from reputable smart device manufacturers. They are more likely to incorporate encrypted signals and require password protection, one or two-step authentication and offer frequent over the air firmware and security updates.

Register the Equipment

It’s important to register each device. This will accomplish a couple of things:
1. Activate the warranty and
2. qualify you for receiving any firmware updates.

Pay Attention to Passwords

- Make sure that you change the default passwords. Try to use different combinations of letters, cases, numbers, and symbols.
In addition, it is best to set up unique passwords for each smart device. This prevents a hacker from gaining access to all your sensitive accounts if the password for one is discovered.

Make Sure Your Wi-Fi Network is Secure

To keep your Guardian security system safe, you need to secure the entire home network. Changing the name of the network and the default password is a good place to start. Use a network name that doesn’t include your address or any personal details.

Consider Professional Installation

While the basics of the DIY system install are pretty straight forward, you might want to get professional help to enhance your network security.

An expert technician can help if you have questions with the Guardian Security App or setting up storage parameters for a Guardian Security Camera.

Reset to Factory Default Settings

Before you dispose of, sell or give away any of your smart devices, or other equipment from Guardian protection Services, make sure to remove all of your data.
