SECURITY. LAW. DATA PROTECTION.
Using a box to secure the house is absolutely not a trivial subject.
The Zipabox is a beautiful and affordable solution. However, the box requires a setting in the cloud and employees zipato potentially have the ability to know everything about setting our house (vacancy, installed modules, cameras, ...).
I am not saying that we should not trust the Zipato team. However, all the data of all homes equipped with are centralized on servers under Zipato's control. Our accounts are protected by a password but we don't have guarantees that passwords are encrypted or that the developers can't see decrypted.
- The French (or other) law does not protect us abroad managed data.
- The French government is not committed Zipato that is certified as a trusted company.
Of course a burglary is mainly a problem of insurance and not a "who is your security company?" question but I prefer not to take any risks.
From my point of view. A real security system must be really private in terms of configuration. So a Cloud based system can't be a strong secure system because someone else can access to our data and we can't be perfectly ensure that is not the case.
So, In my case, I see Zipabox 'secutity' as a good option to manage alarms in case of fire, flood, forgotten open door , etc. BUT NOT for intrusion which must have its own autonomous system.
