Bruce Brown for DigitalTrends:  Zmodo has added more devices and tighter integration and control to its smart home monitoring product lineup. Called Total Smart Home Vision, the company stresses the priority of bank-level security while adding more devices and making it easier for customers to design and control their own smart home configurations.

This Small Device Detects Cyber Threats In Your Smart Home Devices

Jennifer Hicks for Forbes:  By 2025, IDC says that 80 billion devices will be connected to the internet. In the near future, Gartner predicts that by 2020 there will be approximately 25 billion IoT-enabled devices. If you need more proof of rapid consumer adoption in practical terms, Amazon Echo has sold 5.1 million smart speakers in just the first two years of being on the market. 

Now, let's look at the data from all this connectivity. Planet Technology gathered some Internet of Things (IoT) statistics and came up with an infographic that puts the upsurge in connectivity and the data it generates into perspective. If a byte of data was a gallon of water, today in 2016, it would only take 10 seconds to fill the average house with data. By 2020, it will only take two seconds. That's a lot of data being collected by your smart home devices from your intelligent fridge to your connected washing machine, baby monitor and thermostat.  Cont'd...

Comcast wants in on your smart home. Here's how it'll get there

Roger Cheng & David Priest for CNet:  When Fraser Stirling was 16, his father asked him what he wanted to study in school. His answer: industrial design.

His father, who's been an assistant principal and a soccer coach, wasn't pleased. "[He] said that was not a proper job for a man in his house," Stirling recalled in a thick Scottish accent. "He wanted me to get a job where I could actually make some money."

Twenty years later, Stirling is in charge of designing products for the unlikeliest of companies: Comcast.

Yes, the nation's largest cable company, known for delivering "The Walking Dead" to your TV and making you wait hours for a repair technician, is (kinda) entering the hardware business. Comcast has unveiled its first family of products specifically designed by the company to serve its Xfinity Home business.  Cont'd...
