Have you ever stopped to think about how many things in our houses are connected to Wi-Fi and could potentially be hacked? Take a second and think of all of the appliances, phones, computers, laptops, tablets, and smart home tech you have in the house….pretty crazy right! When I slowed down and thought about all of the tech in our house I started to think about how easy it would be for some of it to be potentially hacked. Then, of course, my brain went from calm to nuclear hacking in about 2.2 seconds. Because of course, I think of the worst case scenarios first. Anyone else go to the deep end of worry instantly? Please tell me I am not the only one.
John just shakes his head as I start wondering if someone could hack into our stove and turn it on without us knowing it, or could they get into security cameras and see in the house..or…or…or….
You get the idea! Enter in CUJO Smart Internet Firewall from Best Buy! I am going to admit I didn’t realize how much I needed CUJO in my life until I went off the deep end of worry. Once I started worrying then I NEEDED a solution and I needed one fast! CUJO is a smart firewall for the connected home, designed to bring business-level security to the home network. Yes please! Plus can I just say it is pretty darn cute. Which really isn’t a requirement when protecting my house from hackers but is a total bonus.
What can I say I am a sucker for anything that looks cute and keeps my house safe.

I grew up in the age where my parent’s control was literally unplugging the home phone from the wall and telling me to think about why I couldn’t be on it for 2 hours with my friends. These days it is not that easy to control everything your kids are connected to. Thankfully CUJO is set up to help make your life a little easier and safer. One small addition to your house can mean a huge relief of stress!
Now I know what you are thinking because I thought the same thing…that is great it does so much but I don’t have time to deal with one more thing on my to-do list. I can honestly say that setting up CUJO took a few moments of my life and I was done. I downloaded the CUJO App while watching tv, I set it up while cleaning off my office desk and I thought I was done.
Then about 20 minutes after I thought I had it set up I got a random phone call that I am so glad I answered. It was CUJO customer service wanting to let me know that my CUJO had been offline for a bit and they were checking to make sure everything was ok. They walked me through the final steps of getting it set up that I had missed while trying to do 200 other things at the same time. The CUJO rep I talked to on the phone was super friendly and helpful and I am still in awe that they called to make sure everything was fully set up.
They walked me through how to monitor devices on the CUJO app and what to expect from CUJO. This is the first time I have ever had a company call me to make sure I had their device set up correctly. I am so impressed with the service I received and so happy I set CUJO up in the house.
Head over to your local Best Buy or visit BestBuy.com to check out CUJO! Trust me you will be happy to have this set up in your house and know that you a have business level firewall all wrapped up in a super cute package.
FYI, CUJO lets you know how it is feeling with it’s eyes. These are unhappy eyes telling you that something is not working or needs to be updated. CUJO also blinks and lets you know it is working.
