Hopefully this question won't come across too closely to a which product is best as that is not my intention.
I am moving into a larger property and I would like to setup some home security now i'm not 100% sure on I should be aware of and how to possibly mitigate being broken into. I also do not know the area much at all, it appears to be a quiet English town.
My main concerns are physical security and security of my home network.
Thoughts on physical was to either just get an alarm or some kind of IP camera setup covering the front and rear of the property but after hearing some rather alarming news Nest camera hacks I do however have a few raspberry pi's that could be setup as PI ip camera. But I'm not sure if that would make it more or less secure. One consideration is the property has a shed which will probably contain some bikes and tools which I would like to secure which makes me lead toward camera's is having a set of camera's considered more secure? and if so, to what extent against what threat.
For home network security, I'm far more concerned the area generally has fairly tech savvy people due to lots of technical companies in the area. I've not moved in yet but I will probably just use whatever is supplied by the CSP with the nicest looking package. I'll then change the SSID and any passwords that came by default.
While I'm fairly technical I do not know that much about security and what I do know I can't seem to apply to this, as in how do I take what I think might be an issue and break it up into threats and actions so on. threat analysis I guess it would be called?
So after all that,
- What threats should I be wary of concerning physical security of a home?
- What threats are there to my home network?
- What actions can I take to mitigate some of the threats
