Abstract

Home automation is not a new concept and has been around since the 1970s. Home automation systems (HAS) adoption is increasing since the users want to benefit from such features that allow them to control their home appliances from a single place in their daily lives. However, with the HAS adaptation increase, security issues are also becoming a concern. In today’s world, hackers do not need to travel to target homes and can easily target homes through virtual attacks. Security is a significant factor that users consider when adopting a smart home. This chapter reviews the literature on HAS security issues, solutions, and future challenges.
