Showbiz Cheat Sheet: Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande recently requested a restraining order because fans kept trying to visit them at home. What advice would you give them for additional ways so they can keep their home safe?
Elena Mauer: In the situation of Billie and Ariana,
intruders come to their property repeatedly. Outdoor camera with movement
detection can help you keep tabs on your property and can remind you at any time
there is movement. Some security cameras even have intelligent detection that can distinguish
the difference between a person, a car and an animal and sending you custom alerts
based on what they detect.
I also recommend having professional monitoring at home
security system. That way, a team of trained professionals is ready to call
authorities if needed.
CS: What can ordinary people learn from celebrities and their safety accidents?
EM: Remember a few years ago, when Kim
Kardashian Has a large amount of jewelry been stolen in Paris? Thieves see
photos of jewelry on social media and know exactly where Kim lives
because of paparazzi photos. They also know when he is out and about, and
that’s when they stole goods. After that, Kim became more careful

we can learn from robbery Kim. Never make it clear that you are not at home.

Smart plugs, so you can control your lights remotely from your phone.
CS: What are the signs of a good home security system?
EM: One of the important choices that people need to make when choosing a home security system is having a wired system vs. a wireless system. Both have pros and cons. Wireless security systems are easy to install DIY and are usually more affordable than wired systems, but they pose more risk of hacking. But there are steps you can take to prevent hacking.
Signs of a good home security system are good reviews, high-quality customer service, the option to have professional monitoring, and the ability to set additional security measures, such as two-factor authentication and multiple user accounts.
CS: How do people ensure their digital security
(computer, telephone, etc.)?
EM: Digital security is important for safety. If you
do not secure your device and computer, the more you leave yourself
vulnerable to hackers. Hackers can use the information they find to deactivate
security system or to view security camera footage, or just to steal
password to try to use it to access your other account. You can make something
more difficult for hackers and keep your information safe in several ways:
- Change all the default passwords on your device,
including security systems, cameras and wireless routers, since default
passwords may be easy to guess. If you can, use a password that is at least 8
up to 10 characters with symbols and punctuation. It should not be clear
things like your birthday or address. Change passwords as often as possible, and don’t
share with anyone.
- To ensure your home router is secured,
uses WPA2 security, which requires each new device to send a password
Connect. You might need to enable this option in your router settings.
- Don’t access important accounts or your home
security system when using public Wifi networks.
- Keep updating device firmware and applications, so everything
security update made.
- Security cameras and applications or websites with
Personal information (such as your bank account) must have two factors
authentication. That way, when you log in, it sends you an email or text with
passcode to enter. If you buy a security camera, look for one that offers
