RSA conference is really going downhill fast
I'm pretty sure I would not travel to San Fran, Pay out the nose for hotels and food, be trapped by a couple hundred vendors scanning your badge, and gee I get to see a poorly developed home control system compromised in a simple and non-unique way.

 

Save your money for real training!

Concerned
This is something I'm a bit worried about with the continuing trend to connect everything together. As cars and homes become smarter, it looks like it will become easier for nefarious individuals to control them remotely. Systems that allow it need to be very localised, otherwise we could have tricksters messing with our heating controls! 

Pranks of the future may be a little different than the toiler papering people got up to in yesteryear.
