Protecting Your Ring Camera From Hackers Briant Communications

Amazons Ring Smart Doorbells and access control have been under scrutiny over the past couple of months because of lapses in security. Most customers have nothing to worry about thanks to several factors, including the scarcity of people with the expertise to be able to bypass the security settings which are in place if customers follow the installation instructions carefully. However, if you buy a Ring doorbell and dont update and personalise the security features its not very difficult for anyone with a mobile phone to be able to breech your home security systems.

As Smart devices, including home security and monitoring become ever more popular its natural that the number of devices which are installed poorly or not personalised at all is going to increase. Such an increase makes it possible for the wannabee hacker to travel around looking for systems worth infiltrating and exploiting.Controlling Who Can Go WhereYou can give access to your Ring account to a number of different people who will them be able to talk to visitors, let people in, and watch in real time as people move about from their phones or tablets.

It makes more sense to add users from an admin than give log in details to others, so for example if you have friends or family come to stay, or you want to give people staying at your house via AirBnB access, you can add them or remove them without having to pass on any log-in details.This is true for any phones or computers which get lost or stolen. As soon as you know a device is missing you can immediately disable its Ring access from your admin account meaning that it can no longer be used to gain access to your property.

Sharing ViolationsBecause data is money these days Ring made it possible to send your data to third parties in order them to direct targeted advertising at you via social media. However, a lot of people had a lot of quite reasonable concerns when it came to sharing information about your home security along with your location to companies who you had no connection with. That data sharing process is currently on hold until Ring are able to find a way for users to disable sharing via an on-device interface.

(Of course its quite reasonable to expect that nobody would willingly share this kind of data just to receive advertising messages, and if theyre confident people would want to then it should be an opt in, rather than an opt out.)Requiring Two Factor Authentication for any changesWe recently covered the story of a young girl who was harassed in her own bedroom by a hacker. Her mother recognised that she hadnt set up the security as per the instructions, but was naturally still upset that someone had invaded the familys privacy in order to play some kind of prank on the child.

Ring now requires two factor authentication, meaning that it is absolutely necessary to prove your authenticity before being able to access your account. No longer will people be able to slip past any authentication process by simply using the factory settings the device shipped with.Password Protection & SecurityWe always point out that any duplicated password is going to be far weaker than a unique, complex password.

If you use the same password for your pizza delivery account as you do for your home security youve no way of knowing what security measures the pizza delivery firm has in place, who your kids are allowing to know the password when theyre having a party and want to order in, and you probably dont care if its written down somewhere, either on a piece of paper or a note on your desktop. Problem is, if youre unfortunate enough to have your data breached it is passwords that youre known to use which are going to be tried first.The best thing to do to create and manage long, impossible to guess passwords is to use a password manager.

These themselves require a user name and password which you will have to remember, but they require two stage authentication and are thoroughly encrypted.Controlling Your Alerts Via Home Security DevicesWhen you install your Ring access control devices youll probably find it necessary to manage what sets the cameras rolling. For example, if your camera is positioned so that it takes in part of the street, a tree, or neighbours property you will no doubt want to ignore and certainly wont want to record.

Setting these privacy zones means that you wont get an alert for every passer-by, traffic, or wind moving the leaves, but you will be able to see these areas when the cameras motion detection is triggered by someone moving from a privacy zone into an active zone.People who want Ring Smart home security and access control but are unsure what installation entails should call Briant Communications. Were specialist Smart Home Solution installers, and, as such we can offer help and advice regarding your needs and the best product ranges to suit them.

Sextortion Against Ring and Nest Home Security Camera Owners Increases
Sextortion Against Ring and Nest Home Security Camera Owners Increases
A report published by cybersecurity firm Mimecast details a new sextortion campaign against users of some Internet of Things (IoT) devices, specifically the Google Nest and Ring home security systems. The report indicates that nearly 2,000 fraud attempts have already been detected in the US during the first days of January 2020.Kiri Addison, the firms director of data science, mentions that while this appears to be an ordinary extortion campaign, it has some distinctive features, such as the use of obfuscation methods to hide the origin of emails which complicates the identification of attempted extortion even for users familiar with cybersecurity issues. Like other sextortion campaigns, attackers send emails to victims claiming they have compromising footage that will be revealed unless a payment is made. The first message the victim receives only mentions the threat from hackers and does not contain details of any Bitcoin online wallet or other cryptocurrency to send the payment.Instead of receiving the information to make the payment, victims receive the login credentials to access the external email account where the alleged compromising footage is located, which is legitimate content directly downloaded from the Nest website. Hackers make victims believe that the videos found in this email account were extracted from their devices, says the cybersecurity expert.The attack does not end there; after that, the victim also receives the access keys to a third email account, where the hackers place the threat, claiming that the compromising video will be posted the following week unless a payment of 500 is made in Bitcoin or through gift cards for stores like Amazon or iTunes.Specialists from the International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS) claim that this group of attackers takes advantage of the growing number of hacking reports against such devices, as most users of IoT devices currently know the security risks when using these devices. On the other hand, Addison agrees with such a statement: With so many recently reported security incidents, its really easy to convince a user that their security cameras were hacked, the specialist concludes.Originally published at on January 14, 2020
Common Faults and Solutions When the Control Machine of Parking Lot Management System Spits Cards_ T
Common Faults and Solutions When the Control Machine of Parking Lot Management System Spits Cards_ T
In the past two years, although the card free parking lot system has been widely used in our life, due to the impact of some on-site environment, at present, the parking lot management system through card collection and swiping in and out of the parking lot is still widely used in some communities and other places. Of course, although each set of equipment has undergone a lot of tests when it comes out, but, In the subsequent use process, some problems will inevitably occur, and the card swiping parking lot system is no exception. For all parking lot management systems, we may encounter a common problem, that is, the gate does not lift or does not fall after lifting. Of course, in this case, we can manually remotely control the rise and fall of the gate rod, which will not affect the normal operation of the parking lot for the time being; But if there is a problem with the control machine of the parking lot management system, how can we solve it? The controller of the parking lot management system cannot normally exit the card, which may be caused by the following reasons: 1. At the entrance of the parking lot, the ground sensor cannot sense the vehicle, resulting in the controller unable to eject the card; 2. The inserted card is deformed or the surface is damaged, resulting in blocking at the card outlet when the card is out; 3. When the card in the recycle bin is full, the ground pressure will no longer spit out the card. If the above situations occur, the solutions are as follows: we should ensure that the cards put into the card reader are intact, and regularly check whether the ground feeling at the entrance card reader is normal, whether the cards in the recycling bin are full, etc. There is another situation that we often encounter. At the entrance of the parking lot, the card machine swallows the card, and costs are incurred. The reasons for this situation may be: 1. The card is invalid and the card is recycled; 2. When the card dispenser spits the card to the exit, the ground feeling is released before the card is picked up, resulting in the card being recycled, or the ground feeling is not released, but after the card picking time, the card is automatically recycled, etc. When such a situation occurs, we should regularly check the cards in the recycling warehouse and deal with them in time to prevent relevant expenses. When there are too many cards in the recycling warehouse, they should be handled by the person in charge. All kinds of problems will inevitably occur in the use of any kind of equipment, and so will the parking lot management system. Therefore, we should think of solutions to these problems before they occur, and we can deal with them freely at that time.

Development and Application of Face Recognition Payment Technology_ Taigewang Technology
Face recognition payment system is a payment platform based on face recognition system. It was first launched by the Finnish startup uniqul in July 2013. The system does not need a wallet, credit card or mobile phone. When paying, it only needs to face the camera on the POS screen. The system will automatically associate the consumer's facial information with the personal account. The whole transaction process is very convenient. In the same year, the intelligent multimedia technology research center of Chongqing Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences launched the research on this payment method. Zhou Xi, director of the center, introduced that as of August 2014, the center had completed the research on Key Technologies of face recognition payment system. The center's first face data acquisition array in the world can synchronously collect faces from 91 angles, and can achieve the best recognition effect for the most influential states such as changeable illumination, multi angle and occlusion. The face recognition system of intelligent multimedia technology research center has been applied to automatic customs clearance system of border inspection station, dynamic face recognition attendance machine, multi-attribute dynamic face recognition system, etc. On this basis, the center has developed a face recognition mobile payment system, which can pay only by swiping a face card. Face recognition is a biometric technology for identity authentication based on people's facial feature information. The biggest feature of the technology is that it can avoid personal information leakage and recognize in a non-contact way. Face recognition, fingerprint recognition, palmprint recognition, retinal recognition, bone recognition and heartbeat recognition all belong to human biometric recognition technology. They all came into being with the rapid development of photoelectric technology, microcomputer technology, image processing technology and pattern recognition. Identification can be carried out quickly, accurately and healthily; It is non reproducible. Even after cosmetic surgery, the technology can find the original you from hundreds of facial features. Face recognition system has been widely used in the world. In China, it has been widely used in many important industries and fields such as public security, security, customs, finance, military, airports, border ports and security, as well as civil markets such as intelligent access control, door locks, attendance, mobile phones, digital cameras and intelligent toys.

License Plate Recognition System Has Obvious Advantages in Parking Lot_ Taigewang Technology
Now many parking lots have successively adopted the license plate recognition system, abandoning the traditional single card swiping mode, and the users who apply the license plate recognition system respond well. Market demand is driving people's parking mode towards a new era. This new management mode has been adopted in many fields such as business center, residential area, government organs and public transportation. With the breakthrough of parking lot management system technology, license plate recognition system will gradually go deep into people's life. Compared with the traditional parking lot system, the license plate recognition system has many advantages: firstly, the license plate recognition system can allow vehicles to pass quickly and automatically without parking and swiping cards. When the traffic flow is large and the vehicles are frequent and dense, all vehicles can enter the site quickly to avoid the phenomenon of vehicle queuing, and all vehicles can enter the site without stopping. Secondly, there are diversified charging modes. According to the management of the park, not only can the central fees, the discount of magnetic cards, the payment of the users of the storage be paid, and so on, but also the mobile phone end payment can be used, such as the popular WeChat payment and Alipay payment. License plate recognition system has many functions, such as license plate recognition, information release, voice broadcast, mobile payment, traffic flow statistics, vehicle capture, vehicle type recognition, advertising and so on. When the vehicle enters the site, the license plate recognition system automatically captures the vehicle photos, identifies its license plate number, records the date and time of vehicle entry, vehicle number plate and vehicle photos, and then makes judgment and analysis according to these information, prompts the owner's parking space and the use of the current parking space, and lifts the pole for release. When leaving the site, take another picture of the vehicle, identify its license plate number, automatically find the entry record, vehicle type and access comparison of the vehicle, and then judge whether it is a resident or temporary parking customer of the parking lot according to the data. If so, it is released according to the setting requirements of the property management personnel, otherwise it is released according to the vehicle type (taxi, delivery vehicle, official vehicle, etc.) Determine the receivable temporary parking fee and then release it. It greatly improves the work efficiency of property management personnel and effectively solves the safety problem of parking lot.
Discussion on Hospital Vehicle Management_ Taigewang Technology
Discussion on Hospital Vehicle Management_ Taigewang Technology
For hospitals, managing vehicles is a headache. Because the personnel entering and leaving the hospital are relatively complex, including hospital staff, patients, visiting personnel, sales personnel, etc., while general hospitals are set up in busy sections, and personnel such as hotels, restaurants and shopping malls around often park their vehicles in the hospital, occupying the hospital's parking space, resulting in tight parking space. At the same time, the disorderly parking of vehicles is easy to cause Lane congestion, bring confusion to management, and may also cause ambulance Lane congestion and interfere with the normal work of the hospital. Generally speaking, there are the following problems in the management of hospital parking lot: 1. Unauthorized vehicles enter the parking lot without authorization, occupy the patient parking space, and affect the doctor-patient relationship; 2. Unable to track sudden cases in the parking lot (such as vehicle theft); 3. Unable to effectively manage parking spaces; 4.

The Problem of Arbitrary Parking and Charging Is Serious, and the Charging System of Intelligent Par
The Problem of Arbitrary Parking and Charging Is Serious, and the Charging System of Intelligent Par
Recently, many citizens reported that vehicles in many sections were parked on the roadside, and some blocked the entrance and exit of the subway, which brought a lot of inconvenience to citizens. In view of this situation, the reporter conducted an investigation and found that an open space at the exit A1 of a subway was full of cars, but this was not a special parking lot, There is a clearly marked parking lot at exit A3, but there are only 20 parking spaces, which is obviously not enough, and this parking lot is free, so it is crowded with vehicles every day. Then, the reporter went to another subway exit and found that there was a p R parking lot not far away. There were many parking spaces, but only a few cars were parked in it, which seemed very cold. According to the administrator of P R parking lot, there was no charge in the parking lot here before, and many vehicles were parked every day. Now the parking charge regulations have been formulated, There is no charge for the car within an hour. From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the car will be parked for 2 hours at 3 yuan per car, more than 2 yuan per hour. For the rest of the time, it will be parked for 1 yuan per hour for a continuous day, with a maximum charge of 12 yuan. Many car owners have expressed their opposition, so few vehicles stop here. The charging standard of P R parking lot should be the same as that of public welfare parking lots such as public institutions and libraries. Therefore, in view of this situation, the city will rectify the random parking on the roadside, cancel some areas that are not parking spaces, and implement some preferential policies for P R parking lot, such as using subway tickets to offset parking fees, so as to encourage citizens to use p R parking lot as much as possible, so as to solve the problem of replacing irrelevant vehicles with parking lots for a long time, It can also solve the burden of changing to citizens, and make full use of the parking space of P R parking lot. Finally, the P R parking lot will be reconstructed, and the intelligent parking lot charging system will be used for charging. The system can automatically implement the parking consumption discount function. For some fixed vehicles, the license plate recognition system will be used, which can save the time for car owners to enter and leave the parking lot. In order to enable car owners to easily find the specific location of spare parking spaces, The installation of parking space guidance in the parking lot will be very important, because sometimes when we enter the parking lot, we will find that we can't find the parking space until we turn around in the parking lot, and sometimes we can't even find it. Therefore, the parking space guidance parking lot system will help us find the parking space as soon as possible.
