Whose 'Nest'? Not Yours!!


Just as Ticker predicted, the "Nest" home surveillance/controls systems are problems.

A Milwaukee couple said their smart home was hacked. Their camera began talking to them, and their thermostat reached upwards of 90 degrees.

The Westmoreland family installed a Nest camera, doorbell, and thermostat in their home in 2018. They had no problems until they heard a voice talking through a camera in their kitchen....
Seems that if someone hacks into your WiFi, the Nest system is easy-peasy.

Those doorbell cameras--if hacked--are also roadmaps for burglars interested in the home across the street from yours.  I'm sure your neighbors will be very grateful to you for installing this system!!
