Most people who have even a minor amount of computer knowledge are aware of how critical “Encryption” is. We make online purchases, pay bills and do banking online. The need for powerful encryption, strong passwords and secure authentication is absolute. In the world of IT networks and Data security there can be no room for a casual approach. All of the same encryption and strong authentication safeguards need to be incorporated into your wireless security system. In the day of inexpensive, software defined radios all wireless communication products have become vulnerable to attack. The WiFi network, the baby monitor, the video doorbell, the cell phone and the wireless alarm system. What once required many thousands of dollars of professional level receivers, transceivers, modulators/demodulators, amplifier, filters, detectors and NSA level knowledge can now be had for a few dollars on ebay and the technique can be found on youtube.
In an article in Forbes Magazine published February 17, 2016 Dr. Andrew Zonenberg, Senior security consultant at IOActive demonstrated that many of the most popular wireless alarm products available today, both DIY markets and Professionally installed products, are entirely vulnerable to SDR attacks allowing the alarm to be disarmed without a code or using the keypad. The reality is that a $6 pre-pay cell phone has more encryption than many wireless alarm systems.
Dragonfly Wireless Alarms use AES Algorithm to Mitigate Risk
Dragonfly uses Miltary developed Advanced Encryption Standard and a hidden code that operates equivalent of a single use identifier given to all data on the network. All data devices receiving data know which device was the source of data and will only read the command from known network components. Commands from outside sources such as an SDR will be ignored and data received by an SDR will look like data garbage.
Wireless Dragonfly Alarms go Beyond only Encryption
Professional wireless Video Viewers sold direct to consumers through the website getadragonfly.com go a step further to protect the critical data that makes a wireless alarm useful. Interference can occur if a nearby overpowering signal burdens the communication frequency. This can block a channel or degrade transmission. Dragonfly professional wireless alarms use a technique know as Bidirectional 25 Channel Spread Spectrum transmission. Like a multi lane highway data traffic is free to move from channel to channel, hopping from frequency to frequency avoiding jamming attempts.
SimpliSafe does NOT encrypt its wireless data signals
A simplisafe user attempted to inquire if the simplisafe product was encrypted as discussed in this article and the response from simplisafe was to use good locks, Good Lights and a good relation with the neighbors.
Using BOTH AES Encryption and Spread Spectrum provides the most secure radio signal possible and brings wireless security back to NSA Knowledge levels. Wireless alarm data from Dragonfly is Durable, Robust and Secure. Why would you settle for anything less than a professional grade wireless alarm system when the costs are so similar.
