Cybersecurity for iot
The responsibility for the security of the smart device should be on the vendor side, same as energy consumption. There are already some startup companies that suggesting to solve this problem at scale such as https://www.cybeats.com

Breach
Of course, in the "smart home" example, it could well be a breach of contract and/or a breach of the warranty of habitability (depending upon the situation) to not turn over the "smart keys."

But, of course, much better to have an easy technical solution at the ready than get the lawyers involved.

What happens when the vendor of an IoT device goes belly-up? (And how would anyone know, aren't most of these going to be made overseas?)

What happens if the vendor of an IoT device refuses to patch or upgrade a device? (or decides to charge an outrageous amount for something like Martin Shkreli)

What happens if an IoT device deliberately lies, cheats, or steals? (e.g. Volkswagon) Is this the beginning of the 'Internet of Cheating Things' - as per a New York Time editorial by Zeynep Tufekci 9/23/15

Lastly, it's not new, but bears reconsidering, will we continue to tolerate EULAs that are wholly one-sided and prohibit customers and third parties from inspecting the software/ firmware supplied with a device.
