Breaking into a smart home with a laser

 

Definitely worth a watch, particularly if you are using 'smart' locks.

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

Re: Breaking into a smart home with a laser

Well that's nearly 20 minutes of my life I'll never get back. I'll make sure to keep my eyes peeled for anyone doing a drive-by with a device that looks like a bazooka on a tripod in case they want to change the temperature in my house.Shirty

I think the point is... you could scope out a building, find out what smart tech they have. Go home, program a laser pointer and get free entry.

Or put a lens from those shades they were wearing over the microphone aperture on any device that must/has to sit facing an external window....
I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe.
