There’s a pretty good chance you already have one smart appliance in your home.

In a recent survey we found that 23 percent of consumers have bought a Smart TV in the last year. That’s just about the same percentage who bought a desktop PC.

And homes will likely become smarter faster given how women — who tend to make most of their family’s purchasing decisions — and Millennials in general are taking to the Internet of Things.

A new Better Homes and Gardens survey shows Millennials find that smart technology is “customizable to their needs (74 percent), makes their homes more energy efficient (70 percent), and saves them time (67 percent).”

All of these “wins” for smart home technology do come with some risks, as our Mikko Hypponen explains below and goes into more detail in this interview.

Give it a try.
