    The best video doorbell

    Published on Mar 21, 2016

    This is the video doorbell that earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because of its easy installation and superior video quality. Unlike other models that must be hardwired into an existing doorbell system, The Best model attaches to a door with the included hardware and connects to a home’s wireless network. When the doorbell is pressed, its motion-sensing camera captures video in 180 degree and sends an alert to a smartphone app that displays a delivery arrival or visitor using a live high definition video feed. Providing the option to voice chat or not, The Best model enables answering the door from anywhere in one’s home—or the world—combining convenience with security.

    Watch engineers hack a door lock

    Published on May 2, 2016

    Cybersecurity researchers at the University of Michigan were able to hack into the leading “smart home” automation system and essentially get the PIN code to a home’s front door. Their “lock-pick malware app” was one of four attacks that the cybersecurity researchers leveled at an experimental set-up of Samsung’s SmartThings, a top-selling Internet of Things platform for consumers. The work is believed to be the first platform-wide study of a real-world connected home system. The researchers didn’t like what they saw. Regardless of how safe individual devices are or claim to be, new vulnerabilities form when hardware like electronic locks, thermostats, ovens, sprinklers, lights and motion sensors are networked and set up to be controlled remotely. The researchers told SmartThings about these issues in December 2015 and the company is working on fixes. The researchers rechecked a few weeks ago if a lock's PIN code could still be snooped and reprogrammed by a potential hacker, and it still could.
