Smart Home Privacy and Security: Safeguarding Your Data in the Connected World

Smart Home Privacy and Smart Home Security – In an increasingly interconnected world, the smart home ecosystem has become an integral part of our daily lives. From smart door locks to motorised curtains, smart home devices provide convenience, efficiency, and enhanced security. However, with this technological advancement comes the critical need for robust privacy and security measures. At Koble, we prioritise the protection of your data, ensuring that our smart home system is not only innovative but also secure and compliant with international standards.

Powered by Industry Leaders: Tuya and AWS

Koble’s smart home system is powered by Tuya, a US-listed company renowned for its advanced IoT solutions. Our data centre leverages the robust infrastructure of Amazon Web Services (AWS), ensuring high reliability and security. This collaboration with industry leaders enables us to offer a secure and efficient smart home experience to our customers.

KOBLE is proud to be part of the secure ecosystem that uses AWS for our smart home system. Even Singapore’s very own Singpass, the trusted authentication system for government e-services, utilises AWS for its cloud infrastructure. This showcases the level of trust and reliability that AWS offers. For a deeper dive into why we chose AWS and the benefits it brings to our smart home security, check out our article on why Koble uses an encrypted cloud server over a local database.
