Smart Home Security

Hi guys,

Im currently running what i would say is a "normal home set up". I have a router as my main incoming wifi as well as a extender which is a netgear night hawk.

I run all PC traffic though a paid for VPN.

I also have a smart home, thermostat, alexa, wireless sockets etc. I have been told that the smart home is easy to "hack" AKA some sitting outside gaining entry via the smart home device.

Ive been told i need something like this; Ubiquiti UniFi Security Gateway to secure my home.

Any suggestions.

Please bear in mind my technical knowledge is limited!

I use a RatTrap to secure my smart home network. They're easy to setup. As an added bonus you can use them to block ads.
