The hype is real! Consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices are gaining significant traction and people are increasingly interested in the concept of a smart home.

Determined to find out more about the impact of increased connectivity throughout users' homes, we investigated the overall consumer sentiment towards smart homes and the potential of smart home vulnerabilities.
