I’ve no background in home automation (I’m cheap and hesitant to add “smart” crap to my personal network). But, I’m also advising a nascent cyber security program at a local university. I was thinking that it might be fun for students to practice hacking on a “secure” home automation lab.
The goal is that they can see the results of their hacking (lights on / off, music changes, etc) while they practice. Since I really know nothing about home automation, I’m wondering what people here would recommend as standard fare that could be configured to be hackable. (Thermostats, lights, music, speakers, doorbells, baby monitors, refrigerators, and smart tvs)
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.
