Smart Homes Present Surprising Safety, Security Risks

Smart home devices have brought a new level of convenience to our lives, giving us control of everything from security to temperature at the push of a button. But can this technology be used against us?

In this video, SmarterEveryDay is sharing with us the testing they’ve done to determine if smart homes can be exploited using lasers — and the results are terrifying.

Luckily, there are a few precautions that we can take to keep our homes secure should we choose to use these devices such as keeping them hidden from view outside the home.

Technology is advancing at break-neck speed, and the responsibility to defend our homes from bad guys looking to exploit new loopholes falls on our shoulders.
