Zigbee is a low-power low-data network protocol that's ideal for applications like home automation, where devices communicate infrequently and at short range.
Google joins Amazon, Apple, Zigbee Alliance and others to help develop a smart home connectivity standard. We breakdown how this will change the game plan and help with the technological developments to make a more robust, secure Home Area Network.
A brief overview of the leading smart home network protocols, including Zigbee, Z-wave and newcomer DotDot.
Big changes are afoot in the insurance and financial services industries, driven by data access and advanced analytics, creating fresh competitive energy.
Today's home IoT devices are a security nightmare. Here are three simple ways that home users should protect themselves and the other devices connected to their home networks.
The pathetic security of many IoT devices has been well known for years, but in 2020, governmental actions like SB-327 are finally coming into place. But are they too little, too late?
Many governing bodies within cities are effectively implementing smart tech. Smart city solutions help to improve our human environment needs, making life more comfortable for all.
With the IoT global explosion already well underway, and the equally powerful increase in damaging hacks set to follow, the question is a serious one: Is it time for the federal government to get involved in forcing device manufacturers to up their security game? As expected, there are arguments on both sides of the issue.
There’s perhaps no domain in which robust cybersecurity is more important than in connected defense products. Military contractors working on IoT products need to adhere to an iron-clad framework: correctly categorize the system, adjust security controls to requirements, convert security controls into national/international standards, then verify and test rigorously.
Not everyone is sold on the idea that regulations dictating security standards for IoT devices will actually improve security. A multi-pronged approach would be more effective, including manufacturer-initiated best practices and consumer education.
