Home Automation Security - Bill James, APCUG
Are you worried about home automation devices listening in on your conversations? Wonder if your devices can be hacked and don't know how to keep them from being hacked? Many smart home devices are designed to be easy to use but don't come with a ton of security features - what should you do? Bill will answer these questions and more in this presentation, maybe making it a little bit easier to take the first step to automate your home and get a better price for it when you sell.

Membership Info

Fun Stuff

A typical Q&A meeting chaired by some of our favorite PCS members. It's known as a "Stump The Geeks" session which is always enjoyed by all those who attend.

We often hold Question and Answer sessions at General meetings where our members attempt to "Stump The Geeks" with their questions about computer and smartphone problems and other related issues.

Do the geeks ever get stumped? Of course, once in a while they do but we all appreciate the very interesting and informative discussions that are held. I guess you'll just have to come to a meeting to see for yourself.

Due to the Coronavirus all Prescott Computer Society meetings will be held online.
