Researcher criticises 'weak' crypto in Internet of Things alarm system

WTF?

oops. have just bought this very hardware for an alarm upgrade, to allow remote access etc for alarm checking / reset. I'm struggling to understand why anyone with a clue would link an alarm system over the internet without using a vpn though. As for traffic not being encrypted on the LAN, surely if someone has access to your Lan it's mostly game over anyway...

Telecom have an opportunity here to pull their finger out and probably steal a lead on the competition - some of the systems available are truly appalling (wireless systems with one way transmission)
