The Connected Home  – Getting Connected Securely

In an effort to save money this summer, I tried painting the exterior of our home by myself. How hard can it be? Well, when I stood back and surveyed my work, it was completely uneven and mismatched. Some jobs, I learned, require a professional.

The same lesson applies for trying to connect my home to the Internet. As I explained last week, the result was mostly a disaster. And based on readers’ responses, I know I’m not alone. One reader told me a story about a “smart thermostat” that turned the heat on during the summer and killed the pet goldfish.
