Your lights are off and your doors are locked, but if you've got a "smart home" system, you may be offering cops a window into your house.
Smart home technology is the latest craze among big tech and telecom companies, which are rolling out products that allow people to remotely control things like lights and locks and view footage from security cameras via mobile devices. Apple (AAPL, Tech30) became the latest company to get in on the act earlier this month, unveiling a new software platform called HomeKit that will allow people to manage their connected devices with their iPads or iPhones.

No surprises there. If you put it on the Internet, someone can see it.

And this is only the the purely legal means they are using.. we haven't even talked about the illegal ones where the NSA is also scraping all of this data as well, etc, etc, etc.

I expected this to be the case. I think that most people do.

It doesn't matter if it's not surprising, it's still creepy.
