(PRESS RELEASE) BONN, 17-May-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Deutsche Telekom (ETR: DTE), one of the world’s leading integrated telecommunications companies and the largest telecommunications provider in Europe by revenue, announces that its ongoing commitment to network security and privacy has been recognized by AV-TEST, a leading IT security institute.

The comprehensive security check conducted by AV-TEST examines the app’s ability to establish secure communication channels with connected devices.

Moreover, the app‘s robust security measures prevent third-party manipulation of data and devices, offering protection for networked door locks, security cameras, and alarm detectors, thereby minimizing vulnerabilities to intrusions.

About the MagentaZuhause app

Telekom’s smart home offering enhances the quality of living and life in living spaces and houses. It increases security and helps save energy. The MagentaZuhause app can be used, for example, to control room temperature, lighting or garden watering. Cameras and sensors warn of uninvited guests on request. Whether at the touch of a finger or fully automated, the MagentaZuhause app helps control the smart home. So residents know at all times that everything is fine at home. Even when they’re on the road.

With the MagentaZuhause app, residents control the devices in the home together. Simply invite household members to the app and they can all use the app’s functions. So everyone is connected and can even be automatically notified when a household member comes home.

The MagentaZuhause app networks smart WLAN devices without a separate control center. Only when smart devices with wireless standards such as DECT, Homematic IP or ZigBee are integrated does a control center (Home Base or Speedport Smart) come into play. This makes it particularly easy to get started with SmartHome.

The MagentaZuhause app helps keep an eye on the router’s functions. It displays information about the Internet connection and the signal strength of connected devices. Another advantage is that the app can be used to create a guest WLAN that automatically switches off after 24 hours. The password for this is simply shared with guests via QR code using the app or MagentaTV.
