    This article, plus Charlotte’s on smart home hacks, remains the principal reason why I have yet to ‘upgrade’ our humble abode with smart ware. Given the relative paucity of standards regulation for such devices, and the variability in native security protocols per device, we’re likely going to have to rely, for the foreseeable future, on a truly hardened and adaptable firewall from a major tech company behind which all of these devices can be secured.

    It’s not clear to me that HomeKit or any other product is there yet.
