Home appliances follow you

"Smart" homes are becoming a widespread phenomenon with full control over all home appliances directly from the smartphone. Many of them also have security cameras installed to keep them safe and to document every occurrence 24/7.

It is estimated that there are more than 20 billion connected devices around the world today, and within three years this number is expected to raise to 50 billion. In Israel, many homes are connecting at least some of their electrical appliances to a smartphone. They call it the "Internet of things" - a nickname for electrical appliances connected to the Internet, which is one of the hottest trends of the year.

It turns out that, the technology that is supposed to make life easier and create a sense of security does exactly the opposite. There are many who can break into any smart home, take control of home appliances, and even penetrate smartphones and private accounts of tenants - and all that in a parked car on the street.
