Imagine, your cousin arrives at your home couple of hours early, but you’re stuck at work with prospect of getting home for hours. Your neighbor has a spare key but they aren’t at home either. It’s snowing outside, and your cousin’s taxi is long gone. Lately, there was very little that could be done to help in such situation. But thanks to a iBeacon-powered home automation solution, potentially controlled by you from your smartphone, your cousin can gain entry while keeping your home safe and secure.
How Do Smart Locks And Bluetooth enabled Beacons Keep Your Home Safe?
Smart locks with iBeacon solutions keep your home safe in numerous ways, and Bluetooth technology has a major role to play in all of these variations. First, Bluetooth is in use in so many different products, as compared to competing technologies. Almost every smartphone comes equipped with iBeacon, and the same can be said for the vast majority of smart devices on the market. With so many smart devices being capable of using and communicating with beacon, it makes it much easier for homeowners to integrate their smart locks with other smart devices. This casts a much wider safety net, which will help keep homeowners safe.
Also, in comparison to smart locks and smart devices that run solely on Wi-Fi connectivity or other similar protocols, Bluetooth devices are much safer, especially with the advent of the low energy feature of iBeacon. Smart locks and smart devices with these capabilities do not have to be constantly connected to the Internet, which drastically reduces the chances of someone hacking into your home. In addition to this, they operate with the minimal use of power, which in turn makes them long lasting and efficient. These two features go hand in hand to make it nearly impossible for someone to infiltrate your network. Bluetooth enabled iBeacon transmissions are also done through adaptive frequency hopping. This doubly ensures that the proper transmissions are being sent from one point to another without any external interference.
The main flaw of iBeacon transmission over ad hoc networks is the lack of network access control, however, this issue is nullified by authentication methods that make sure that only
The main flaw of Bluetooth enabled iBeacon transmissions over ad hoc networks is the lack of network access control, however, this issue is nullified by authentication methods that make sure that only authorized ‘nodes’ can inject traffic into a network. In this case, your smartphone would be the authorized node attempting to communicate with your smart lock.
