Myfox, the European smart home security expert, today announced that it will unveil its new Myfox Security System at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES®) in Las Vegas. CES 2015 marks both the company’s US launch and the launch of a new standard in home security. The new Myfox Security System along with other new Myfox products will be introduced at CES. Unveiled on January 4 and showcased throughout the duration of CES 2015 at Sands Booth 71429.
Here’s a scary headline: “BlackEnergy crimeware coursing through US control systems.” That’s from a report on a security vulnerability discovered in the Internet-connected pieces of industrial infrastructure that control things like electricity generation and water systems. A Seattle startup says its technology, first developed to help secure robotic tooling on Boeing’s 777 assembly lines, can help.
“We initially were a residential security provider,” said Todd Pedersen, Vivint CEO. “Now we are evolving rapidly. We are now working in connected homes, smart homes, Internet of things.”
Pedersen, who kicked off the meeting, spoke about the potential Vivint has with their Innovation Center. The smart home industry is projected to be an $800 million industry by 2018 and Internet of Things is supposed to be a multi-trillion dollar industry by 2020, he said.
