One security company investigated smart home thermostats and found that they were, in fact, hackable. The hackers found that they could peek into users' web history, the times when they were and were not home, and other crucial information that you wouldn't want a hacker to know. A thermostat-based security breach is unlikely since the hacker would have to have to physically enter the building and hook up to the thermostat with a USB cable-unless you bought it secondhand.
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.
In addition, as they arrive home, their smart car will connect with their home, their lights will automatically come on within the home, their heating will come on and so will their appropriate kitchen devices, such as their oven waiting to pre-cook their dinner. A further scenario includes their groceries being delivered at the exact moment they arrive home. This has happened because that smart refrigerator has realised that they are running low on certain items, has automatically contacted their local grocery store who have assembled the items and delivered them automatically to their home. The grocery store new when to deliver them by accessing the drivers on-line calendar and working out the exact point when they would be home.
