We evaluate functional features of each smart-home device, including deployment configurations, pairing, service configuration, and more. The functional evaluation provides a quick overview of good practices and weak practices that can impact the operation or the security of the device.
Our security evaluation considers all components of smart-home device including mobile application, cloud services, the device itself, and their communications. We evaluate over 25 security properites to identify weaknesses and vulnerable deployments.
Scoring and Analysis
Our scoring incorporates all components of a smart-home device. We consider all interactive componenets such as mobile application, cloud services, smart-home device, and their network communications. Additionally, for each device we reassess each component over time to identify improvments in the functional and security properites.
