Protect your own four walls and keep them safe - this premise also applies to the networked home. Anyone who wants a smart home system that meets all security requirements is making the right choice with Deutsche Telekom. This is confirmed by the security check carried out by the independent IT experts from AV-TEST. After extensive testing, the MagentaZuhause app and the Magenta SmartHome smart home solution received the "Tested Smart Home Product" certificate. 

Security on the test bench

The test examined how securely the networked home can be used. The comprehensive test examines how secure communication is in the smart home with the apps and the connected devices. The results show that Magenta SmartHome and the MagentaZuhause app are well protected against potential hacker attacks. Manipulation by external parties is prevented. In addition, the products guarantee all-around secure communication. This means that third parties can neither read nor intercept the data during transmission. 

The tested devices and apps thus continue to meet all the requirements for certification by AV-TEST in 2022. Magenta SmartHome has received the certificate for the eighth time in a row. For the MagentaZuhause app, it was the first security test of this kind.
