Smart Home. Tuesday , July 31st , 2018 - 04:26:44 AM
The best part of this new market is that if you are moderately handy or capable of doing some handy work around the house you can set it up and monitor it yourself without too much effort. In order to truly realize the capabilities and energy efficiencies of a smart home there are certain things you should consider before getting started. Where you live, dry climate, humid, temperate etc. What your budget is, not only what you can afford to spend on changes, but also what your highest utility costs are and where you might want to save some money.
However, there is another, more present danger. Smart devices will help hackers become more successful at hacking other targets. A common tactic of hackers is to add malicious code to a website that will invite itself into your device and invisibly enslave it to work for a "botnet," which is a connected network of devices all working to hack something else. Internet of Things devices would be a perfect target, since they're seldom disconnected from the internet and their security is rarely considered.
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.
