The Iota Hub from abode is an all-in-one device. It connects to sensors and cameras, it can control Zigbee and Z-Wave home automation devices, and the hub itself contains a motion sensor and a 1080p security camera.
All those capabilities give the Iota Hub deep access to your home, which could turn into a liability if the device itself isn’t secure and private. Fortunately, the Iota Hub uses end-to-end encryption, keeping all communications private. The built-in camera also features a physical privacy shutter, which you can close when you don’t want the device monitoring your home.
