Rob Graham 🦃 on Twitter: “1/x: So I bought a surveillance camera https://t.co/HbmPzrZgFK”

Conclusions:

  1. Always put your IoT devices behind a firewall
  2. Isolate each IoT device into it’s own “world” that can communicate as little with the rest of your networks as possible
  3. Preferably isolate each set of IoT devices that do need to communicate in their LoT (Lan of Things)
  4. Use Ad-Blockers
