Researchers took a good look at the security features of the various platforms, asking the question, "In what ways are emerging, programmable, smart homes vulnerable to attacks, and what do these attacks entail?"
To answer the question, the researchers decided to focus on one particular smart home system. They mention the system is one of the more mature ones on the market, with over 500 applications, and support for over 130 IoT smart home devices.
In addition, the smart home controller has a number of conceptual similarities to other, newer systems that make their findings relevant.
