Smart homes and the Internet of Things are the wave of the future. But what you may not know is that many smart homes are vulnerable to hackers and that some of those hackers may work for the Federal government.

Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors.

A smart home is supposed to be more convenient, energy efficient and secure. You may have already made your home a little smarter with a few of these internet-enabled devices and there are plenty of them. Among the vast array of smart devices are thermostats, smoke alarms, cameras, sprinkler systems, ceiling fans and even light bulbs that hook up to the internet and are controllable by apps on your phone or computer.

But one thing many people may not realize is that a lot of these devices have little or no encryption. And that's what you need to keep the hackers away from your network. So, if you have these smart devices in your home, you may be leaving your home network vulnerable to uninvited guests, including the Federal government.

Think I’m just being paranoid? Listen to this:

Just last month, National Intelligence Director, James Clapper testified that Uncle Sam will be using smart home devices to spy on Americans. He was giving Senators an annual assessment of threats against the U.S. and said, "In the future, intelligence services might use the Internet of Things for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking and targeting for recruitment, or to gain access to networks or user credentials."

That's a mouthful, but it's basically saying that future national security and law enforcement tactics will include the hacking of vulnerable smart home networks. The words of George Orwell in his novel 1984 may be coming true - that Big Brother is watching you...
