Iris Smart Hub Set Up Instructions

August 14, 2012 in Security tips

Find Iris products at www.Lowes.com This is the Iris hub, which is the heart of the system and will need to be set up first before you install any other devices. To do this visit Lowes.com/Iris for step by step instructions. Once on the site, you can begin to set up your account with the 6 digit number on the back of your hub. Like any other devices, place the hub in a central location so that it has good reach with all products. To install, first plug the provided Ethernet cable into the WiFi router, followed by the power cord. It is important to do this in this order. Next you can begin to pair any device that is compatible with Iris. The three blinking lights on the hub all have different functions. The red signals that there is an error, an unregistered signal or that the internet is disconnected. Yellow means that the Iris hub is working, but needs attention. Finally the green flashing light means that the device is in pairing mode, while a solid green light means that the device is in perfect working condition.

10 Tips for Wireless Home Network Security

August 14, 2012 in Security tips

1. Change Default Administrator Passwords (and Usernames) At the core of most Wi-Fi home networks is an access point or router. 2. Turn on (Compatible) WPA / WEP Encryption All Wi-Fi equipment supports some form of encryption. 3. Change the Default SSID Access points and routers all use a network name called the SSID. 4. Enable MAC Address Filtering Each piece of Wi-Fi gear possesses a unique identifier called the physical address or MAC address. 5. Disable SSID Broadcast In Wi-Fi networking, the wireless access point or router typically broadcasts the network name (SSID) over the air at regular intervals. 6. Do Not Auto-Connect to Open Wi-Fi Networks Connecting to an open Wi-Fi network such as a free wireless hotspot or your neighbor’s router exposes your computer to security risks. 7. Assign Static IP Addresses to Devices Most home networkers gravitate toward using dynamic IP addresses. DHCP technology is indeed easy to set up. 8. Enable Firewalls On Each Computer and the Router Modern network routers contain built-in firewall capability, but the option also exists to disable them. 9. Position the Router or Access Point Safely Wi-Fi signals normally reach to the exterior of a home. A small amount of signal leakage outdoors is not a problem, but the further this signal reaches, the easier it is for others to detect and exploit. 10. Turn Off the Network During Extended Periods of Non-Use The ultimate in wireless security measures, shutting down your network will most

How A Musician Built CD Baby Into A $22 Million Dollar Business From His Home. –The Derek Sivers Interview

August 14, 2012 in Security tips

blog.mixergy.com Derek Sivers created CD Baby because he needed a way to sell his music online. Soon other musicians asked him to help them sell their music. A few years later, he found himself helping over 100000 artists sell their music. He recently sold his company for million. He’s now running a new company, but he’s always willing to help startups. So I called him up and asked him to teach us. Here’s some of what I learned. (Download the interview to learn more.) He wasn’t afraid to start crappy Derek laughs when wannabe entrepreneurs tell him about all the features they plan to include when they launch their companies. When he launched CD Baby the site’s design was pretty dorky. And instead of building a fully automated site, he did much of the order processing by hand. Quit aiming for perfection, just launch. (Guy Kawasaki told me the same thing in this interview.) He knew what feedback to accept Start crappy and build the business by listening and integrating user feedback. But be careful not to let user feedback take you too far off course. Derek says people kept telling him that he should launch a radio station. But he kept refusing because he didn’t think it was a good fit for his business. He was patient 9 months after launching, his site was only bringing in a week. Others might have have assumed that the site was a failure, but Derek was patient. He gave it room to grow. He knew how to get financial security I asked Derek if earning that first
