Research from Parks Associates shows that while familiarity with smart home products is still low, there is more and more interest from consumers to integrate connected products in the home.
The challenge for developers will be in building complex security structures that don't hamper device usability.
A massive internet breach last October of the cloud-based internet performance management company Dyn left millions of homeowners open to hackers simply because their smart home devices were still using a standardized manufacturer's password.
The challenge is the individual things that are connected are targets for hackers, whackers and cyberthieves. Nothing worse than your thing(s) filled with malware or being held for ransom until you cough up a few hundred Bitcoins and hope there is such a thing as honor among thieves.

So we have projects being carried out in every technology area without a long-term plan as to what the silicon corridors are going to look like in 50 years (2068) or even 2042.
UL is working with manufacturers to overcome challenges of interoperability, usability and cybersecurity.
High-performance cable for today's networks runs laps around cheap imitations. Make sure you know what you're installing, and you can avoid performance and reliability problems down the line.
You see, each smart device has to work and it has to work with all the other devices in the home … all the time.
