QUOTE: After installing a smart home kit, you can control and monitor your house in many ways. Turn the air conditioner on before you get home, make sure doors and windows are closed, switch lights on and off; these are just a few of the possibilities. However, researchers at AV-Test found some smart house kits to be extremely lax in their security. A back door in the software might literally let a crook remotely open your back door!
