Smart Appliances May Become In-Home Spies for Government (Video)

Smart technology is taking over our smarts and doing everything that we should continue to do for ourselves.  We have refrigerators making grocery lists, and vacuum cleaners that scoot around preventing us from getting the exercise we know we need.  The list goes on and on in the gadgetry world, but soon we’ll find that those same appliances will be spying on us for the government.

According to the Mobiledia, CIA Director David Petraeus agrees that appliances, as they grow in their popularity and placement in our homes, we will soon see them make use of the technology to keeps suspicious characters under control and in some cases apprehended:

“Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing,” Petraeus said, according to Wired.”

The report suggests that the more connected you are, especially by smart phones that control your home and other devices in your home, are more likely to have the potential of being monitored.  Read more here before you cut the lights off in your home with your phone.
