Technology without Security is dangerous!
Technology is a big part of our lives now within business but also with residential aspects. Gone are the days where you could un-box your new home router and plug it in and everything will work (except for making a few changes like PASSWORDS).The days of hacking are here and its actually not hard to do, GOOGLE will show you the way and the tools, so follow a few simple steps to avoid your personal information being given away to prying eyes.STEP 1 Change your default ADMIN password on your router to a strong password comprised of 12 characters, CAPS and lowercase and numbers and symbols.Test it here and do not use a password on this list.STEP 2 Change your WIFI password too in the same way as outlined above Test it here and do not use the same password as ADMIN password above in STEP 1STEP 3 Change your WIFI encryption type to WPA2. See how to here. It is much harder to break with technology but easy if you use your Partner/Children’s names of dates of birth.STEP 4 Add a MAC ADDRESS exception list and manually add in all your home computers, smart phones, laptop and tablets. See how to here. It will add an extra level of protection from within the network.STEP 5 Turn off uPNP. See here for how and why. Its bad and its vulnerable in may ways and its just not needed.STEP 6 Check your port security on your firewall in both directions, only do port forwarding if needed and avoid DMZ pin holes.Its basic stuff in Technology but if you don’t have it in place you may have all your personal documents, pictures and information spread over the web potentially causing all manner of other issues.The easiest solution is to replace your router with a Sophos UTM but then I´m biased as I used to work there and still love using their products.

How I control my world @home!
Controlling your own world@home...
I fell in love with Home Automation many years ago when I used to install high end systems into celebrities houses in the most expensive parts of London.Technology and prices have really changed since then but ease of use still remains the key factor to a successful install.In my case its VOICE control, yes you read it correctly, VOICE CONTROL!She is called CELIA and I tell what to do and she makes it happen.Traditionally home automation is controlled with a bunch of remotes, or a single remote or a smart phone or tablet acting as a home remote control. push the buttons and get the function.Well I have this on my smart phone and on my tablet but it doesn’t help when the battery dies, that where voice control rules and its so easy to use my daughters who are both under 6 years of age use it too.From closing and opening the curtains, to turning on/off the lights, dimming lighting, changing colour of lighting, controlling TV channels and volume, playing media (music and video), locking the door or telling CELIA I need the bathroom it all just works and its expandable to practically anything.Currently I tell CELIA i want to watch a movie and she will, close the curtains, turn off living room lights, turn and dim to 50% the dining room lights, turn on accent LED lighting and change to Blue colour, turn on TV and switch to MEDIA (HDMI) input and then ask me if I want popcorn. If i answer yes then she will turn on popcorn maker.There is very little CELIA cant do, the only obstacle is my programming imagination.CELIA voice control will be released as an Estrato10 product named VOICE! in the near future but for now she is all mine.

Loving the HEAT! factor
Never realised how cold it can be in Colombia...
As you may or may not know I am a British national who migrated to Colombia after falling in love with Colombia after many years of vacations and a successful World Cup 2014.I always thought it was a warm country and the heating systems and cold weather I grew accustomed to the the UK were redundant here.Well in the morning or in the evening it can be very cold here, touch the wall its freezing cold! walk on the floor barefoot its really cold! its all down to the construction and the fact that heating systems are rare in Colombia.Understanding the cold and heating systems is something I have decades of experience in and that’s why we have established Estrato10 HEAT! product as the leading and safest and most energy efficient way of establishing heating within new or old construction.Touch the button on the wall and 15-20 minutes later the floor is warm, wait an hour and its really hot, not a component in sight except for touchscreen wall controller and no pipes, water, pumps or boilers are needed.Also, I never realised that earthquake tremors are quite common here and that can lead to damage to water heating systems but our HEAT! product is 100% electric and flexible so I guess you could say its “Earthquake resistant”, I don’t think anybody else to make that same claim for their products.Try Estrato10 HEAT! and you will love it.

Biometrics in Technology!
Biometrics in Home Automation!
Biometrics in Technology and Security, is it cool? Absolutely yes it is, yet is it secure enough to protect your home or business?....short answer not yet.Biometrics have always been driven by the idea that each person is unique in a Biological way (fingerprint, retina, face etc) and this uniqueness replaces your password which can be copied fairly easily.Technology in Biometrics is forever pushing forward and growing as it adapts to main stream but Security is always the test of a Biometric systems ability to be used in main stream. In simple terms, in recent years we lock our smartphones with a 4 digit PIN or pass-code but its not hard to copy it so now we use fingerprint sensors to authenticate login and even financial transactions for the same smartphone.Is it more secure? - YES, has it been hacked? - YES (no I can’t tell you how but its not hard to do), can you change it if there is a problem? - NOT REALLY because its based on your biological uniqueness.If you forget your PIN or pass-code or lose your house key there is a way that it can be changed or reset relativity easily, if your fingerprint is cloned and your Biometric lock is compromised can you change the Biometric ID? NOT REALLYSo would you entrust your home or business security access to just a single lock that operates on Biometric ID alone? Its not a good idea because it can be compromised fairly easily.The secret is authentication, Two factor authentication (2FA) is now mainstream and is basically two forms of authenticating a user (fingerprint and 4 digit password or RF key and fingerprint or any combination of two unique factors).Two factor authentication is slower and less liked in usability factors but it increases security. Can you secure your home or business with a 2FA Biometric Door lock? YES you can at a premium price but it is more effective than having two door locks operated by two different keys - NO (its the same thing)I love technology and the many way it can be adapted to be used in Home Automation but in Door Access Security you need to tread carefully.An expensive 2FA Biometric door lock (HIGH TECH) is on the same security level as Two different manual key locks (LOW TECH) but what is the point investing so much in door security when someone can get in via the Window you overlooked (CRIMINAL TECH).

Security in Home Automation!
Securing the Internet of Things!
Home Automation and working with equipment within “Internet of Things” is what we do here at Estrato10. Technology is changing on a daily basis to allow simple devices such as Fridges and Toasters and Water Kettles to be connected to the Network and be managed by home automation systems.Security seems to be an overlooked topic but the problem is that anyone can access information on how to hack the device and compromise security, check out this article by our security specialists SOPHOS who have created a simple check-list to hack your Internet Connected Kettle and gain access to your home or work network for further attacks.https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2015/10/20/internet-of-things-do-you-really-need-a-kettle-that-can-boil-your-security-dry/Why try to hack the lock when you can hack the kettle and you gain internal network access, scary thought!At Estrato10 we ensure Security guidelines are met for all installations.You may want the newest gadget integrated into your home and Estrato10 will assist you but only in a secure manner that will not compromise your security or safety from external malicious attack.
Welcome to the ESTRATO10 products and services gallery where you can see the majority of our product offerings and the various stages of installation to help better understand and visualise our services.Obviously due to security reasons we are unable to show all aspects and installation examples of every product offering,
At Estrato10 we offer many different types of products and services but rather than reading more about them why not just watch the following videos to see the end result of our combined service offerings.Please click on the following videos to view our end results in our services offered.
VOICE! by Estrato10
