Everyone who said Microsoft would become Skynet in the 90's are dead wrong. Looks like Google has replaced them, and unlike the 90's nobody is concerned about fail play and their possible monopolistic position. biggrin.gif

He can turn appliances on and off, lights on and off, doors locked and unlocked, adjust temperatures, change lighting color, turn sprinklers on and off. It doesn't stop there either! Adjust pool temps, retract pool cover....I think the dude spent more on home automation and network control than most people spend on building a house!

I used to set up home automation, the company I worked for sold to ADT and got molded into the atrocity they call Pulse. We could do anything you could imagine, but the problem is if you can build it you can hack it. I can go in and unlock any home that we have ever worked on if I so chose. Good thing I'm an upstanding member of my community!

Haha, my roommate wrote a paper on something similar to this for his info sec 400 level course. Basically to the effect that we will have to start putting encryption on these devices and others. They have already shown that you can hijack a Ford with Sync and disable critical systems like the brakes. House is cake walk. Think if you amped up a dishwasher at night and it overheats and catches fire. How do you think you would even be able to tell since the fire will wipe out the evidence?
