Its not all rainbows and butterflies.
Iot with its imperial advancement and clouding the home automation sector, has seen quiet fall back from various issues. Security, privacy or maybe something else. House owners fell that they are been watched or their devices are not as safe as it seems.
Here are the top five issues in IoT for Home Owners :
- Data leaks or hacking :
Keeping a password as “admin” or “myhome” is really easy for anyone to crack. A study by Forbes proves that, 8/10 home automation devices with password, have such simple keywords. It becomes easy for them to access it and hack into the system.
- Privacy Loss :
Big data has made life simple and profitable for many business, but created concerns among many users. When giants like Google or Apple collect your daily data and know each and every move you make. Do you think your private life is as private ?
- Products are complicated :
“ Its simple and easy to install” and then they forget to mention “if you are a engineer or a tech geek”. Smart home devices are advertised as products of convenience—but in actuality, they often serve to frustrate and confuse homeowners. Creating a lighting “theme” is a lot more complex than just switching on a few lights, and requires insight into a user’s habits and routines that many homeowners just don’t have.
- Legal Rights :
There are no concrete laws present which encompasses the various layers of IoT across the world. The gamut of devices connected to each other raises many security issues and no existing legal laws address such exposures.
- Low-Power, Short-Range IoT Networks :
Now imagine you sitting in your car and pressing the garage door button but nothing happens. Reason ? You are not in range. Damn that is irritating. IoT devices are taking into serious consideration to improvise the signal range and make it user friendly. Just take into example HomyHub, open the door anytime and from any where .
