Smart Home Environments Can Be Harsh and Require Protection

Connected home products enable many functions, and as such, face exposure to a variety of harsh environments.

Outdoor elements that can jeopardize devices such as a video doorbell or security camera include:

  • Pollution
  • Humidity
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Salt fog
  • High temperatures that could cause other protection methods to fail.

Indoors, smart speakers used in kitchens or other portable devices may face splashes or even full submersion, as well as contact with cleaning products. Meanwhile, appliances such as smart washing machines require powerful waterproofing protection.
