According to survey results released by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), 62 percent of online consumers interested in learning more about home automation said that they they primarily look at safety and security such technology can provide.
So, people are only concerned about these "automation" systems providing additional security and convenience? Personally, I'd be more concerned with the security risk they pose.... Consider this.... Your "home automation system" is connected to your home security system. Someone sitting outside uses their Android smartphone to "hack" your home network and gain access to your "home automation system" and consequently, your home security system. Now, where is the increased security?
As long as a network is involved....security is nothing but an illusion...
after watching documentaries on how researchers are breaking in to everything, from peacemakers to cars to do anything they want, it leaves me wondering, is the alarm hardware system encrypted? how much is enough, and like sikozis said:

especially wireless. I was just watching a commercial bout a vivdit or something like that offering home automation system, and was just wondering about the actual system security.
