I learn by just throwing things out into the ether, so here it goes here. Security of the home automation and security network has always been a concern but it is growing as the market expands.
I have heard issues of a hub (z-wave) being forced into secondary mode. The reason given is that the communication on the z-wave is so active that it will force the hub into secondary controller mode. I have only heard one manufacturers hub doing this so I believe it is something in the “backend” of the manufacturers software and they are attempting to push blame onto the z-wave spec/system itself.
My concern is if this is true, this being a z-wave issue then ALL systems using z-wave might be open to attact.
