What measures do you take to keep DynaMax secure?

DynaMax adopts security measures that include certificate pinning, encryption, two-factor authentication for all system administrators, and regular security audits. We also encourage our customers to secure their wireless networks and adopt strong passwords.
How secure are the products in the DynaMax ecosystem?
DynaMax is constantly working with the top security researchers around the world and our partners to improve the security of our devices and the devices we connect with. Making our products more secure is not a one-time event. It’s a process that we are committed to continually improving.

DynaMax is constantly testing and auditing the security of our platform. We make frequent updates to the app and the hub to ensure you have the latest security. We’ll alert you in the app when an update is needed. For critical updates, we may push the update automatically so you don’t have to worry about it.
How can I help protect my home network?
DynaMax works to make security a priority, but there are also things you can do at home to help secure your home network and smart products.
Always update your smart products when new software and firmware are available.
It is important to always keep the software on your connected products up to date. These updates not only give you new features, but help keep your products secure.
Use strong passwords for your connected products.
Make sure the password for your Wi-Fi network and your DynaMax account are at least 16 characters and contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. This suggestion applies to any passwords you create for other accounts.
Use unique passwords for each account.
Passwords should not be reused for multiple accounts (DynaMax, Facebook, etc.). This ensures that the impact of one account getting compromised will not affect the others.
Utilize the “guest network” feature on your wireless router.
If friends or family request access to your wireless network while they visit, use your router’s guest network feature instead of giving them access to the network that connects all of your smart products. While access to that network will not grant them access to your connected home, it keeps your network more protected.
Make sure your wireless network is secured with a modern security encryption like WPA2-PSK.
WPA2-PSK is the modern standard for network security and replaces the depreciated, and proven insecure, WEP encryption. Unfortunately, some routers are still installed with WEP as the default security scheme. WEP networks can often be identified by the network password; if your password is exactly 10 or 26 characters long and only contains hexadecimal characters (0-9 and a-f) it is likely your network is configured with WEP security. For security purposes, a, you should convert your network security to WPA2-PSK. Refer to your router’s instruction manual for details on how to do this.
