Hassle for renters right now

IoT seems like the next big thing to have if you own your own home. If you rent, or plan to sell your home, de-installing or releasing all the appliances you can't take with you seems like a big pain. Across-the-internet owner validation is a whole new security challenge. But once IoT is essentially commoditized, it will be everywhere.

@Bob: How about a high tech doorbell...

One that screen the people on your doorstep and filters out the "undesirables" (sad to relate, this would include all of my friends as far as my wife is concerened :-)

I agree Max. That's why you and I need to form a company to make the next big widget. How about a high tech doorbell or an electronic welcome mat. That should be worth a couple billion, don't you think?

IoT already hacked

FYI:  Business Insider reports: "In this case, hackers broke into more than 100,000 everyday consumer gadgets, such as home-networking routers, connected multi-media centers, televisions, and at least one refrigerator, Proofpoint says. They then used those objects to send more than 750,000 malicious emails to enterprises and individuals worldwide."

Didn't take long for that to raise its ugly head.  Imagine what they could do to your electric/gas bill.

@DrFPGA, that's a good one! What I have been told is that Google will know A LOT MORE about what you are doing at home.

Realistically this is exactly what will happen...they will read your temperature and the targetted add for a Canadian parka will appear on your screen while you will be doing your work


Today when you search for ceratin terms too often the targetted ads already appear...if you are not paranoid this is just a value added services that Google provides to you at no charge!

once they know my thermostat settings can the adverts for warm sweatshirts be far behind? Or ice tea mix during the summer?

over-paying

Over-paying for something is just a sign of how much you value it. Google clearly sees Nest Labs as an opportunity to enter a completely new space. They want to open it up forceably and create an enduring legacy for themselves. This is an area that has gone fairly untouched to this point. I don't think that over-paying in this case is unreasonable--unless you by definition say that over-paying is paying an unreasonable amount.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
