Skynet is real, and it’s happening now. Where is Sarah Connor to.protect us? lol
UK passports come with a chip, in the chip is the original passport. Now although it can be “hacked” you can’t change the info on it. You can read it, but apparently it can’t be changed.
With most of the chips in home automation the range is so small, that only someone who is.outside.your home on.your WiFi, can change it.
The biggest weakness being the homebase which is the controller. Not having anything that can be controlled, it can’t be overtaken!
Oh, I have 1 Alexa speaker (until it’s time to send back) but no other things, so I know I’m safe.
Most homebase products are pure on/off products…
Alexa turn on…
Alexa turn off…
Alexa tell everyone to come for dinner!
Chips are just switched, and other than maybe make someone extremly paranoid (who.keeos turning on the cooker?) I’m not sure what would be the gain to control someone’s home gadgets.
Yes, I’m warning all the time on FB that companies are not the genuine ones, they have no “tick” , people still think that a company really has 100 partly new old models to give away, or a thousand iPhones without wrapper… Or … Or …
Greed. It’s all about how much I can get free or how much money can I grab! How many times have we heard… Old Mr j.doe, had his life savings stolen … After he went to claim 100k from a badly worded email… Greed.
Contestants losing all their jackpot, by going next question… Greed.
Greed will kill so many people, not technology.
