Common misconceptions about smart homes and biometrics

  • Smart home integration is gaining popularity – especially in modern times with more people confined to their homes by Covid-19.
  • The most common misconception is the immunity of biometrics to potential attack. It is critical to disengage the connection between data breach stories and biometrics, by focusing on the fact that the real cause of most attacks is not biometrics itself, but the storage of biometrics data in a centralised database.
