@afwriter:

The three things listed in your post are absolutely good features as part of ability to monitor the activity while you are away from home. My only discomfort would be to start controling like opening / closing doors, garages etc.

Re: Partnerships
For a second there, I thought we were joining far off neighborhood watch crew for Ariella's neighborhood...

Scheduled actions inside the house (thanks to IoT) could help deter would-be intruders. Not all bad guys actually case a house before going in, however.

Re: Partnerships
Ariella you may be better off just stopping your mail. If someone is targeting your home, they may see your neighbor picking up your mail and performing other tasks and know you are not home. Security, surveillance and not advertising that you are going away are the best options.

Re: Partnerships
Depending on the size of your home and who/what is in it having something like cameras can even help you when you are in the home. I love knowing who is at the front door, what the kids are doing in the yard, and where the dog is while I am working in my home office.

Re: Partnerships
@faryl True, obvilously your neighbors have their own lives to lead and may have to be out of the neighborhood just when an intruder does decide to try your house. But unless you have a mail slot in your door, you may still need to ask a neighbor to carry away your mail. Otherwise, the overstuffed box can be a dead giveaway tht the occupant is away.

Re: Partnerships
Security concerns aside, I do like the idea of being able to be aware of what's happening at my home even if I'm not there. WAY better than asking a neighbor to keep an eye on it.

Finding a Balance
I think customers will primarily fall into one of three.mindsets - indifferent; hesitant, either because they are savvy enough to be concerned about security risks and recognize the lack of control currently available to properly secure everything or because they just don't trust technology; or really excited about the potential functionalities without recognizing or having the skills to mitigate security issues. My hope is that manufacturers focus on winning the trust of that second group, rather than try to turn the first (indifferent) into the third (ready to jump in blindly).

Re: Yikes.......
I don't feel confident that the manufacturers entering the market have the security backgrounds to sufficiently mitigate what information can be accessed from where/by whom. We've seen that with devices such as security cameras that have default passwords, but don't provide the average person with the means to change them (or even make them aware one exists to be changed). (My personal concern is how the data is collected & stored and - in the US - how the 4th Amendment is applied.)

Re: Yikes.......
@Jeremy Even if you do keep the sensors out of your home itself, wouldn't you still be conveying a lot of information about yourself and your habits just from your phone? I'd think it would be impossible to disconnect from the digital trail unless you give up smartphones as well as all the newer connected devices.
