Home invasions are scary and intrusive, and across the world, more homes are being transformed by high-tech security devices such as lights, locks, alarms, and camera gadgets to protect them from burglary. While it might be an easy and convenient way to control your home, not many people are aware that the same devices that keep them safe can be used against them by hackers to spy and break into their homes.

We  want to share some of the possible hackable devices that are used in homes so that you can identify them and prevent any potential invasions from taking place.

1. Missing data flow

Installing a security camera in your home can be very effective but when there’s missing data flow in the surveillance footage, it’s likely that the system has been tampered with. Checking for any invalid logins and network interuptions can prevent any unusual disruptions.

2. Randomly blinking LED lights

When checking the webcam security footage, be keen on observing the red LED lights and if you notice they’re randomly blinking, it can indicate that the camera system has a hacking problem worth informing the police about.

3. Strange noises coming from the camera

One of the easiest ways to discover an intrusion is by strange noises coming from your camera. For instance, if a strange voice is coming from the camera, it’s a sure indication of trouble.

4. Getting locked out of the Internet via baby monitor

Many types of baby monitors have evolved over the past years from radio transmissions to those that are connected to the internet. Unfortunately, these are prone to hackers and one can even get locked out of the system. Carefully observe such changes and secure your network.

5. An unlocked smart door

The keyless smart locks have become quite popular since they make it easy to enter homes and apartment complexes with just the tap of a finger on a phone. However, they can also be abused by Bluetooth manipulation or can be opened using a thin pick that can unlock the doors manually.

 

6. An unstable alarm system

If you’ve ever set up an alarm system in your home, then you likely have observed the regular beeps and siren-like sounds it creates indicating that it’s operating efficiently. But if the device keeps going off more than usual, it’s a cause for alarm. Also, if the device has been installed outside, one can physically tamper with it more easily.

7. Signalling a motion detector

Motion detectors normally have dual tech sensors like a microwave sensor and a PIR sensor unit that work together. However, if an intruder is able to tamper with either of them, the sensor will not be detected. Being keen on checking if your detector has been switched off without relaying transmissions would be a good thing to do if you have a home security system.

8. Controlled WiFi-enabled bulbs

Bulbs have also evolved from arc lamps to florescent lighting — and now there are WiFi-enabled bulbs that are even better and smarter. But they also can be controlled by an outside party. A hacker can easily manipulate the lights by turning them on and off or just by changing the colors.
