Due to the growing data breaches, hacking of devices and data, ransomware, botnet attacks, and identity theft, consumers have become increasingly concerned about the security of their data as well as home security.

However, users might not be aware that one of the biggest reasons for increasing security breaches is due to several connected devices on one network.

In the U.S., there are around 10.4 devices connect to single household broadband, be it for smart home, smart speaker, or health devices. Thus, on hacking a single network, anyone could get access to several devices.

Enterprise security applications are working to improve home security by integrating advanced and robust technologies like Artificial Intelligence. However, enterprise-grade security solutions are extremely expensive for the consumer market.

Companies like Dojo and Cujo AI, on the other hand, have expanded their consumer offerings by delivering cloud-supported security solutions that include a virtual software agent designed specifically to monitor network security for consumers.

This emerging solution is being developed for home security using robust technologies such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence to monitor and detect incoming threats, to identify devices on the home network and unreliable phishing websites.

Let’s take a look at how AI is revolutionizing home security. 


1. Seamless Wi-Fi Connectivity

Modern security systems now let you connect your security camera with your wi-fi connections. You can not only connect all your devices with your home’s Wi-Fi but can also install and download a smartphone app to view the security footage of your house virtually from anywhere.

The best part is your Wi-Fi will detect the movements, and will notify you, at the same time you can view the live feeds as well. This is how you can take quick and informed action before any mishappening.


2. Quick Device Identification

Device identification is an amazing way for digital parenting and to secure your home. You can get varied solutions on the basis of identification capabilities be it for Mac addresses to detailed device types, brand, and model.

You can make use of cloud intelligence to tap on every endpoint connection and to see every single detail.

Big companies like Asus and Cujo AI, optimization of router hardware and firmware is done to deliver maximum security, high-alertness, throughput, and latency. With today’s technology, the more data you get the more advanced and smarter the technology becomes.


3. Facial Recognition

Facial recognition is another big improvement in the technology used frequently for home security. It combines with Artificial Intelligence to minimize the number of false alarms you experience. With the ability to detect faces you can recognize or you’ve invited to your home on a regular basis.

It only alarms your or notifies you in case it detects a new face.


4. Endpoint and Network Security

Unreliable device behavior can easily be identified using Artificial Intelligence without the need of decrypting or examining the data packets. IoT device behavioral analysis is capable of identifying deviation and alerts the user and quarantines the infected devices immediately.

There are certain devices, for instance, networked cameras, which have a unique attack profile that can easily be attacked with the remote access of the camera. However, thanks to AI capabilities of learning the unique attacks profiles due to which it can instantly detect them in real-time.

How? By observing their destination URLs and protocols employed.

It also blocks strategies like remote access protection as soon as the unique attack profile is identified.


5. Parental Controls

Parental control is another feature of AI-driven home security that enables parents to set schedules, limit screen time, limit access to popular services, and block inappropriate content. AI also enables web content filtering which can analyze text to detect threats from sexual predators and cyberbullies.

When it comes to network security, consumers are more interested in buying robust and advanced solutions that can not only protect the home network but can also secure your IoT devices as well.


How To Build AI-driven Software Applications for Home Security

AI is altogether giving a new value to the consumer market and is enabling more brands to be more competitive.

Now that you know how important AI has become for home security and how keen consumers are to purchase such software applications and devices, it’s time to build reliable yet smart applications. All you can do is find experts who have commendable knowledge of the latest technologies and get started!
