Hackers can already breach camera systems, smart TVs and baby monitors. It may not seem like much of a threat, but it has led to nude images of innocent people being leaked online. Smart meters in Spain have fallen victim to electricity blackouts and billing fraud. One woman found that she had the ability to control all the utilities in the houses of eight strangers, opening them up to poltergeist-like activity and break-ins. Luckily, she decided to alert the company and the device owners to the security problems instead.
At the moment it is anticipated that the systems are will be controlled through an app or apps through someone's smart phone, but I could well change in the future. The push by the big tech companies to move to voice recognition technology seems to imply that this is their preferred mode of coordinating the mechanics of a smart home. What is perhaps being overlooked are the cyber security implications and risks inherent within any such system.
An ordinary smoke detector that gets activated can cause confusion, especially if you have several units at home. If it isn't monitored, there's no way you'll get alerted about a possible fire - unless you have some friendly neighbors looking after your home. For your safety and security, it's best if you can upgrade your smoke detector to something smarter. Most smart smoke detectors today are industrial grade and can last a long time. Some of them even come with dedicated apps to help make monitoring a lot easier. Apart from battery life, they can also tell you exactly which area of the house is showing increased temperature. They can even connect you to your local police and firemen for a quick resolution. These extra features can mean a higher price tag. However, considering that they can augment your home security and initiate a faster response, they can be considered as valuable investments. If you are on a tight budget and investing in new devices doesn't seem feasible at the moment, your next best option is to invest in a device that can turn ordinary devices into smart ones.
