Total Stranger Hacks a Smart House and Takes Control of All Devices In The House
see what happens when you have all of your tech connected

It turns out smart houses aren’t that smart after all. Bryan Hatley, a tech enthusiast, has managed to “hack” into a smart house in Oregon, and take full control of very sensitive devices inside and around the house.

Taking control of the sensitive devices means he could turn on and off the lights in any room, as well as TV, heating system, open and close garage doors, and control many other parts of the house that could have had potentially dangerous consequences. However, Hatley’s intention luckily wasn’t that. What he did is call the owner of the smart house and warn him over the potential security issues he can have with the system. He didn’t want to do anything illegal accidentally, and get in trouble because of it (although he could).

Like what?

I mean, maybe you could turn things on and off, but beyond that, what could you do?

not much you can do other than use as little connected tech as possible, no smart TVs, smart kitchen appliances, smartphones, cars made after 2000 (just a guess)

Steal your info from the phone, but they could do that anyways.

Open the garage door and steal everything.

Turn up the water heater, turn on the stove eyes on high.

Turn off the fridge.

Set the heat to 99.

Who knows. But its coming to a house near you.
