Home Automation

Guys I just need some advice before it jump in too far in my planning. With HA system needing to be on a network, What are some of the best security practices being used at this time that are not as obvious as securing you network. I thought I had read somewhere that the a gentleman built one that was offline but still able to automate. Im not looking for software as much as I am looking into methods that are in use or have been used and that work.

First, not all HA systems have to be on a network, and the certainly don't have to be on an Internet-connected network. It really depends on what HA system you're thinking about using. For instance, you could do a lot with an Elk-based system without any IP-based network at all. Or you could do a really complex IP-based network, but put it on an isolated network without Internet access. Or a separate network with a locked-down firewall between the HA network and your home network.

with all the hack going on in cyber , I want to have protection but a the same time have remote access in to my home. I also want to do a lot of this myself in order to cut cost down a bit
