Re: The concern with security
@afwriter:

There is a constant debate going on whether what we do using our smart devices or leading towards making our homes smarter is secure enough besides getting to be smart enough. Even here in our Telco forums there has been so much discussion going on from time to time.

But this i ntiative from Verizon appears to be very interesting and promising. The key fact that drew my attention is their talk about their security credentialing covreing all irrespective of what network. We just need to wait and see how this all comes along.

Re: The concern with security
It's interesting, isn't it, seeing as how physically picking a lock is (depending on your choice of scenario) the same as logically hacking/cracking it.  I do agree, though, that these devices do expand the degrees to which we expose ourselves, in that instead of having to physically be at your front door to pentest the lock an intruder can be anywhere with internet access.  While I take precautions and accept the relative risks (I'm a boring person), it doesn't negate the fact that "pretty-normal" kids these days are learning to pwn these devices!

The concern with security
I am a huge proponent of IoT and am currently outfitting my house with a number of devices.  While I try to tell myself that IoT devices are often safer than their traditional counterparts (locks and smoke alarms for example) the idea that some one could "hack" my lock instead of pick it, or tap into my drop cam is always looming somewhere in the back of my mind.
