Consumers May be Overestimating the Security of Home Security

Consumers may be overestimating the security of home security. While 64% of American broadband households worry about security and privacy when they use their connected devices, 63% think the signals from their monitored homes are encrypted – though they usually are not, according to a whitepaper from Parks Associates.

The whitepaper, “Residential Security and Encryption: Setting the Standard, Protecting Consumers,” points out that encrypting signals is not a standard security industry practice. The white paper was sponsored by security system manufacturer Qolsys.

From the article "Consumers May be Overestimating the Security of Home Security" by Carl Weinschenk.
