IoT devices can pick up your voice, interests, habits, TV preferences, meals and all sorts of other sensitive data.
But life inside the home, too, is increasingly transparent to watchful outsiders, the result of mushrooming internet-connected devices that consumers are setting up in their dens and bedrooms.
What's happening: Internet-connected devices can pick up your voice, interests, habits, TV preferences, meals, times home and away, and all sorts of other sensitive data.
The sizable picture: Constant surveillance at home is not yet a reality but it's the direction we're moving in, says Jay Stanley, senior policy counsel at the ACLU.
The massive spread of these devices introduce "enormous potential for abuse, for discrimination, and for shifts in power away from the individual and toward companies and agencies," says Stanley.
