One of the main areas that has been explored for smart homes is that related to improving health. Several IoT smart home products have been developed that aim to monitor the status of the environment in the house. This includes, for example, monitoring the condition of the air across a number of categories - humidity, temperature, dust, CO2 etc. This information is then transmitted to a control interface where the user (the home owner or house occupier) can examine it and take appropriate action. Alternatively, this can be linked into other systems whereby automatic action can be taken to bring conditions back to the desired level, such as automatically turning air cooling or filtering systems on. Other appliance-based solutions that are on the market include fridges that can monitor the status of food, checking for spoilage or similar, while automated cleaning can help reduce dust and dirt in the house.
Smart home systems tend to be the various types of systems that would be used within a smart home such as an alarm system, a security system, a lighting control system, an audio system, a technology system and perhaps even a complete smart phone system. In addition that will need to be a smart home management system both to coordinate all these activities, and to be able to manage them in the event of any one of them not working.
The threats of security breach include but not limited to insecure devices, insecure mobile apps and Wi-Fi network vulnerabilities. The smart home developer is always up and doing to secure their devices and apps through pre-engineered software and regular updates through FOTA (Firmware on the Air), once the device has been sold and being used by the Consumers. So, as an end-user, your primary concern is the network in which your device is connected.
