NTT DATA study finds a carrier-consumer perception gap; Market unknowns and pricing barriers may stand in the way of Smart Home adoption
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 Z-Wave Alliance, an open consortium of leading global companies deploying the Z-Wave smart home standard, as of today will require strict and uniform adoption of a new security protocol for all Z-Wave devices receiving certification. The Alliance Board of Directors voted unanimously in November 2016 to require mandatory implementation of the new Security 2 (S2) framework, the most advanced security for smart home devices and controllers, gateways and hubs in the market today.
All too often, companies building connected devices either ignore security completely, try to bolt it on late in the development cycle, or treat it as a "nice to have" feature.
All of the great "toys" are simply logical extensions of technology you're begging to use yourself and will help your kids be light years ahead of you when they're your age!
The Tabs hub provides Wi-Fi coverage over an entire residence and Tabs sensor coverage over entire neighborhoods with significant benefits not only to consumers but also to operators and service providers deploying Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). For operators and service providers, the Tabs hub installed within customers' homes accelerates and scales LPWAN deployments much faster than a solely tower-based approach, easily provides deep indoor coverage and significantly reduces the network deployment capital and operation expense. Each Tabs solution starts with a wireless hub, which provides the Tabs sensor coverage over an entire neighborhood or high-rise development, delivering immediate benefit to the consumer. Each solution further includes a Tabs extender, which is a Tabs sensor hub but not a full Wi-Fi router, to ensure coverage over the locations most frequented by families such as school, day-care, or a friend's house. As more users install Tabs hubs and extenders, they collaborate to build or improve network coverage over an entire city or region, giving the users additional benefit for locating children, pets, elderly or things.
