I just purchased my Homey, but I’m considering sending it back due to the lack of security focus.
You basically connect all your home devices to one system and then expose that for remote access. It seems like you don’t have 2FA and the only reading about security is that you mostly use https (which is hygiene and not really a feature): https://support.athom.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015685913-Is-Homey-secure-
I love the product and I really hope to get some input from you how I can get my setup to a more secure state. Currently I’m hesitant to add more apps and I’m baffled about those who add locks, alarm systems etc.
Could you please:
- Update on the progress of implementing 2FA (maybe use Google?)
- Elaborate on how you work with improving the security and what is on the roadmap
- Give me some tips on how I can improve the security of my Homey setup (e.g. set up a VPN tunnel)
