Security and Oomi.

Your home needs security.
And so does your home control system.

Security and privacy are a part of the home not often overlooked. We lock our doors and windows and we secure our homes with elaborate security systems. And as home automation systems gradually become more popular, we’ll need to put even more effort into securing them as we do our homes.

Oomi has been designed and engineered to be secure. It’s also been designed to closely guard your privacy.

security end-to end

Encryption from end to end.

Oomi is secured in your home and it’s secured in the cloud too. We know how important security is to Oomi and to you. So we’ve built hardened security into it wherever possible, especially the cloud.

When you access Oomi through the cloud, you’ll do so through a secured connection. From end-to-end, before you even log in, all your communication with Oomi will be encrypted through various layers of SSL, banking-grade, AES-128 bit encryption, and private keys.

security point to point

Encryption from point to point.

Home automation systems need to be secured in the cloud. They also need to be secured in the home. Oomi is.

Whenever Oomi communicates between its various accessories within your home, it does so securely. We’ve built Oomi’s wireless communication upon the same banking grade AES-128 bit encryption that we’ve used to secure Oomi’s external communications. With this level of encryption, Oomi’s security is hardened inside of your and outside of it too.

independent user accounts

Independent user accounts.

Each user of your Oomi can have their own account. And each account can be given different levels of access to Oomi’s features, accessories and settings.

home automation without cloud

Perfect, without the chance of clouds.

There are untold advantages to using the cloud to backup and process your Oomi’s data. But cloud hosting of a home automation system isn’t for everyone.

Oomi’s cloud is completely optional. We know that the data that Oomi processes is completely yours: you own it. And because of that, and the privacy concerns that some people have, your Oomi can run both in the cloud and without it.

secure connected home

Hard security.
Hard light.

See that blue LED? That’s how you know that someone is using your Oomi Oomi’s camera. It’s a hardwired light that can’t be disabled; when the camera is on, the light is on. So you’ll always know when Hub’s camera is being used.

disable oomi camera

Now it sees you.
Now it wont.

Just because you’ll sometimes look out of Oomi Cubes’s camera, it doesn’t mean that you’ll always want it looking back at you. For those time, Oomi Cube comes with Hub Cap. Cap is a clever, magnetic cover that attaches neatly to the front of Hub and turns off the power provided to Hub’s camera. Magnetically attach it whenever you want to cover Hub’s camera, and then remove it all the other times.

now it sees you

See no.
Hear no.

See no evil anything. Hear none either.

If Hub Cap doesn’t satisfy your privacy concerns, Oomi Cube has another solution: two tiny switches on the underside of Hub that allow you to disable the operation of its camera and microphone. Flick them into the off position, and power won’t be provided to the camera or microphone. Hub won’t see a thing, and it won’t hear a thing either. And because they’re physical cut-off switches, the privacy settings you select with them can’t be changed without physical access to your Oomi Cube. That makes them hack proof.
