Alexa can listen to your voice order, turn on/off the light, air conditioner, contact friends etc. It is so easy.
But the news about Alexa Listening To Conversations and shared it decreased many people's enthusiasm of smart home.
The more kits you connect to the hub, the more privicy may be exposed. It is still not time to connect everything to Alexa.
For all internet of things, there are 4 aspects needs security increase.
1. Increase the device reliability, for example, improving the accuracy of biometrics module.
2. Increase network security. Enable data encryption.
3. Increase system security and database security.
4. Increase application, management operation system security.
The standard of IOT security is needed.
