The next generation of BMW’s voice assistant will be based on Amazon Alexa technology.

The next generation of BMW’s voice assistant will be based on BMW’s Alexa technology. This was announced today by Stephan Durach, Senior Vice President, Connected Enterprise and Development Technical Operations, BMW Group, and Dave Limp, Senior Vice President, Amazon Devices and Services, at the Amazon Devices and Services launch event.

Alexa technology will enable an even more natural dialog between driver and vehicle, so drivers can stay focused on the road ahead. This will take the digital experience to a whole new level, said Stephan Durach.

Amazon’s Dave Limp added:This cooperation with BMW is a great example of what Alexa Custom Assistant was designed for, making it faster and easier for companies to build custom smart assistants on virtually any device, without the cost and complexity.” to build from scratch.

Since the introduction of BMW’s first voice assistant (BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant) in 2018, voice interaction has become an increasingly important part of BMW iDrive. BMW’s new voice assistant will work in cooperation with Alexa, providing customers with the benefits of an intelligent assistant that is the expert in vehicles and services, while Alexa provides the familiar experience that many customers are already using today, such as the ability to control music, remotely manage your smart home, add items to a shopping list or check the time of day.

Customers can continue to choose. Customers can still choose to use the BMW voice assistant and Alexa individually, or have both assistants work together. The first vehicles with the new generation of BMW’s voice assistant will be launched in the next two years.

Data protection is an absolute priority for the BMW Group.

 

The BMW Group ensures that customer data is protected and processed in accordance with data privacy requirements through established processes in all markets in which the company operates. The BMW Group and Amazon share a strong commitment to maintaining customer trust and protecting their privacy, including giving them control over their data.

BMW Group

SPF: security for your email

To protect your email from cyber attacks, you must be able to identify the sender. This is where a security feature known as SPF comes into play.

In this article we will explain what it is and why you should care about it. Let us begin:

What is SPF?

The Sender Policy Framework is an email security protocol that allows the identity of senders to be verified.

This is divided into two parts:

A  DNS TXT/SPF record : which indicates which servers are authorized to send emails from a given domain.

The  ​SPF check ​: is the verification that is done on receiving a message and that checks if the server that has sent the message is indeed the one that the DNS record marks as authorized.

Therefore, the configuration of the DNS TXT/SPF record allows  sending mail  to be correctly signed , while the  SPF check consists of discriminating  received mail . 

How does SPF work ?

The SPF check checks that the sending server is authorized to send mail on behalf of the domain.

It works at various levels, based on the DNS TXT/SPF record:

1.- Verify that the sender IP is authorized to send emails with said domain.
2.- Verify the  email enveloper sender field  matches the expected value.
3.- Verify by means of the helo/ehlo command the valid response from the server that sends the mail.

If the set of checks does not match, the email is blocked. All received emails have a header added with the result of the SPF analysis.

Now, how do we find out the IP addresses of the sender’s email server? We do this by checking the SPF record of the sender’s domain name.

SPF record

In  cdmon  this default log looks like this:

v=spf1 include:_spf.srv.cat ~all

At first glance, this does not seem to include any IP addresses, but if we analyze it with a specialized tool, it indicates the IPs from which a  cdmon user  can send messages:

This means that if a  cdmon user  works with the default SPF record, they will be able to send messages from any of these IPs:

46.16.56.0/21
134.0.8.0/21
185.22.200.0/22
​​185.34.192.0/22
​​185.42.104.0/22
​​185.66.40.0/22

In case of working with more than one mail service (such as a mailing service such as Acumba or Mailchimp), it will be necessary to add their servers as authorized hosts for sending.

Remember that you can only have a single SPF record, so if you have to make this change, we recommend that you follow the steps indicated in our guide to  configure it for mail in the static DNS  or follow the instructions in the following video:

But why do we need email security?

Email is convenient and easy to use, but it’s also open to cyberattacks and other threats. Email security is the way to protect your account and prevent spam emails from others.

This can prevent scams and phishing attacks that can steal your information. Also, knowing the identity of the sender can protect you from spoofed emails and people pretending to be someone else.

With SPF, you can feel more confident that your email account is protected.

How to choose your video surveillance system?

How to choose your video surveillance system?

Define the level of home security
To know what video surveillance system you need, it is important to ask yourself how protected your home is currently and in which areas you should reinforce your security.

 

There are many types of video surveillance systems, which means that each one will have different characteristics and peculiarities.

Not all of them could be adjusted to the needs of your home.

Therefore, when choosing a camera system for the home, it is essential to take into consideration:

The design of your house.
The number of entrances to your home.
The size of your house.
The value of your assets
Your budget available.
Using this information, you will be able to determine how your video surveillance system should be for your home.

Types of security cameras for homes
Home security cameras are the ‘mother’ element of any video surveillance system.

They come in different sizes and obviously for different purposes.

Once you have defined what your home security needs are, you should consider the different types of home security cameras and choose the one that is right for you.

The types of cameras are:

BOX cameras
They are security cameras for houses with multifocal and interchangeable lenses.

Bullet cameras
These security cameras are smaller in size; they go unnoticed and can be placed indoors or outdoors.

Dome Cameras
These are placed on the ceiling or walls and offer an anti-vandalism casing.

PTZ cameras
It is a type of security camera camera capable of rotating in a vertical plane and in a horizontal plane and that, in addition, can be zoomed in or out manually or automatically.

How can I improve the video surveillance system?
After selecting the type of camera, one should also emphasize the additional features that video surveillance equipment can offer.

When choosing security cameras there are other variables to consider as well.

From cameras for day or night, waterproof, types of technology available. Pay attention to this list that can also help you improve the functionality of your video surveillance system and increase security:

Adjustable cameras: They are the mobile cameras that can be tilted or zoomed for multiple points of view.
Day / night cameras. Night cameras use infrared LEDs to generate clearer images.
Cameras with high resolution: Cameras with higher resolution offer better image quality.
IP cameras vs wired cameras: IP cameras are those that do not need cables for their operation.
Waterproof cameras: They are the ideal cameras for outdoor places, since they do not ruin when in contact with water.
Cameras with remote access: Synchronizing your video surveillance system with home security applications will allow you to control the cameras and see in real time through your mobile device.

LEVEL TOUCH – SMART LOCK

It does all the things you expect from a smart lock — except look like one. Level’s new Touch lock hides all the necessary technology inside a traditional lock footprint, letting it blend seamlessly into any decor. As the name suggests, it can open with just a touch, as well as with a key card, traditional physical key, or via an app. HomeKit integration allows for remote operation and control, and simple installation instructions mean it can be set up using nothing more than a simple screwdriver.

Smart lock company Level, which made its name with the Level Bolt that fits most doors and doesn’t look like a smart lock, has added a new device to its lineup that takes the existing benefits of the Bolt and adds a key new one: capacitive touch. Despite that addition, the Level Touch still doesn’t resemble a smart lock. There’s no obvious place you need to touch, nor is there a keypad or other tell-tale sign this is no ordinary lock — once set up, users just touch a fingertip to the edge of the lock to unlock or lock it. The lock uses low energy Bluetooth to confirm that the person touching it also has an authenticated smartphone on their person.

The Level Touch also supports all of the other access methods you’d expect from a smart lock, including hotel-style programmable access cards, a smartphone app (Android or iOS), geo-fencing, and the ability to share timed access with people remotely. It’s that deep feature set, along with the understated design that offers no clues to the smartness contained within to the casual observer that goes some way to justifying the hefty price tag of $329.

That might be hard to stomach if you live alone in an apartment block, but could seem like decent value if you’ve got a big family, frequent visitors, or want to use the Level Touch for an Airbnb property.

SECRETLY SMART — Fingerprint support at this sort of price point is increasingly common in smart locks, but Level’s job of hiding its smartness is its unique selling point. Having a smart lock that makes it clear to anyone who cares to look that it’s a smart lock makes it more likely someone will try to meddle with it. By looking like a regular lock, the Level Touch is almost certainly more secure. To help it match your existing fixtures the smart lock is available in chrome, brass, nickel, or black.

Power comes from a CR2 battery that lives in the deadbolt, and that Level reckons ought to last a year between changes. You’ll be warned well in advance of the battery dying, and if it does, there’s always the option to go old school and, you know, use a physical key in the lock. Installation shouldn’t take more than a few minutes, and though you’ll likely be able to do it yourself, Level had partnered with a company called HelloTech that’ll assist for a fee if necessary.

In addition to geofencing that’ll trigger the lock when you or family members are a certain distance away, there’s also the option to set an auto-lock function after a pre-determined delay. The only problem with that is there’s no way of telling if the door’s accidentally been left ajar. Depending on your abode and housemates / family, that may not be a problem. Despite having no visible spring or other mechanism to thank / blame, for instance, my apartment’s door closes by itself if left to its own devices. I suspect it’s hung ever so slightly skew and gravity is to thank.

AT LEAST SOMEONE LOVES SIRI Our other concern with Level’s Touch (and the Bolt that preceded it, for that matter) is that though it offers support for voice commands and scheduled actions, these features are only supported for Apple’s HomeKit smart home platform, not for Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. Most functionality is available via the Android app, but with the smart home platform market having settled on the three aforementioned purveyors, it’s frustrating that only Apple’s is supported.
