@Astara - All those devices already meet certain design and safety standards: toilets prevent the output contaminating the fresh water supply; toasters meet fire and electrical safety regulations; fridges don't leak dangerous refrigerant. The problem is, we don't have IoT security standards that manufacturers have to follow.
