How to Beat the Flu Season with Technology

Using Technology to Beat Flu Season? It's Downright Possible These Days

I’ve nursed a cough for nearly a month when the year has started. I had worst days, but coughing and sneezing are affecting my productivity. It’s also kind of embarrassing when you can’t stop coughing when you’re in public.

So, for you guys to dodge the flu, you can get help from technology. We use technology mostly for entertainment and work. We better use it for our health watch too. Here are ways on how to do that.

Do preventive precautions

As they old healthy saying goes, “Prevention is always better than cure.” For us to avoid flu and stay healthy, we should always be hydrated, get the right amount of sleep and if needed, check on our vital signs. There are gadgets that can help track these like Thermos smart water bottles, Sense sleep monitor, and Withings blood pressure monitor.

Alleviate body pains

Sometimes, body pains come with the flu. Or sometimes, people tend to overlook the chronic pain that they’re feeling because it’s always there and they’ve learned to deal with it. The Quell Pain Relief is a wearable that serves as a revolutionary solution for this. Quell comes with a companion app that lets users set the pressure so pain on certain parts of your body can be minimized.

Monitor body temperature closely

If flu has finally kicked in, what you can do aside from going to the doctor and take the recommended medications, is to monitor your temperature closely. If you have smart thermometers from Kinsa or Withings, you can track your temperature simpler and keep graphs of your readings so you will know if you are getting better or not.

That’s how technology can help us live better. Keeping these smart health products in your home lets you kick flu and sickness in the butt. If you want to take a closer look at these products, you can read our guide on beating the flu season with smart gadgets.

How to Avoid Getting Your Smart Locks Hacked

How to Avoid Getting Your Smart Locks Hacked

You would be surprised at how countless people have shared their horrible smart lock experiences. Smart locks, apparently, can be a little dumb when it comes to security.

Take for example the case of a 31-year-old smart enthusiast living in Missouri. He went all in on the smart home and was dumbfounded when his neighbor walked up casually to his front door and yelled, “Hey Siri, unlock the front door.” Siri complied.

His mistake was to place his iPad in the living room for his convenience. Sadly, his iPad didn’t have passcode authentication, making toying around his smart lock ridiculously easy. His smart lock story went viral online and got a spotlight in Forbes.

This is not meant to discourage you from going for a smart home. This is just to remind that you of the precautions that you need to take so your smart lock will not get hacked.

Password authentication

I know, it’s basic, but passwords are like the pawns of your kingdom. You have this extra layer of security of defense that drives off people who are just playing around like the neighbor in the story. Enable passwords in your devices and your Wi-Fi network.

Make your own network

Smart home devices need to have a network so they can understand each other. Usually, you’d just connect it to the Internet, the holy place where everyone can have access to everything. If you want your smart home to be safe, you’d want to create your own, separate network.

This has a downside, however. First, it takes time to setup. Second, some features of your devices (ie, Amazon’s Alexa search feature which needs the internet) wouldn’t work. This setup is recommended if you control your home devices via automation and physical smart switches, like sensors that’ll trigger your lights.

Invest in smart locks from reputable companies

If the second suggestion doesn’t appeal to you because of the limitations, the best that you can do is to invest in smart locks from reputable companies like August, Kevo, and Schlage. These companies protect their businesses and their clients by continuously reinforcing their security. They usually release security updates regularly.

There you go. If you do these things, you can protect your smart locks from getting hacked.
