Cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important concern for businesses and individuals around the world, but in some ways the threat from hackers remains a mystery.
It’s a topic that’s often overlooked in the digital world, where the vast majority of the public remains ignorant of its vulnerabilities and how to protect themselves.
But one company is taking a different approach.
Costco security has developed a new, smart home security app called Zoom Security, which offers consumers a way to securely monitor their home’s security and manage their own security remotely.
The app’s goal is to improve security in the home, but its biggest feature is that it makes it possible to monitor your home’s home security systems.
“It’s very useful for anyone who wants to monitor their homes security, especially for people who have never used an app before,” said Andrew Hahn, vice president of product management at Costco.
Zoom Security’s user interface uses an intuitive design, which makes it easy to understand.
It shows the most recent security threats to your home, along with your home network, and then lets you turn off these threats remotely.
“For some people, that’s a great feature, for others it’s a little bit more of a challenge.
But if you’re doing your own home security, then that’s great,” Hahn said.
Costcos app has already been downloaded more than 10 million times, and it’s available for both Android and iOS.
Zooplum, a cloud-based service that connects home and office security monitors, also has a similar feature, but for a fraction of the price.
Hahn said the app is especially useful for companies that monitor their network and have a lot of network access, like companies with large data centers.
“We really like to have a cloud solution that’s easy to integrate, and that’s one of the key things that Zoom offers is that we can monitor and control our own network remotely,” he said.
The security features in Zoom are just a fraction from what is already offered by the companies mentioned above, but Hahn noted that there’s a lot more to come.
“There’s more to it, we’re not done yet,” he added.
“One of the things that really stood out to us is the fact that Zooplamp can be used for both home and workplace security monitoring, so you can do home monitoring as well as work monitoring,” Hahne added.
Zoo also has an additional feature called Home Security, a feature that can monitor a range of different home security devices, including smart thermostats, smart lighting, and smoke alarms.
Zooming in on the app’s security features, Hahn explained that Zooming in shows a number of settings and options, like whether Zoom can monitor remote monitoring or not, which can be very useful if you want to monitor from anywhere in the world.
“A lot of people use Zoom to do home security monitoring,” he noted.
“If you want a little more privacy, you can have Zooploamp on a home network so that it’s not a big distraction for you and you can just do your own remote monitoring.”
Costco has already signed up thousands of customers for ZoopLamp, and plans to release Zoopsecurity and ZoopSecurity Plus later this year.
