Actually I meant IP in general. Most home automation stuff should be on a dedicated backbone, like Zigbee (or in the case of some of the higher end stuff like Lutron, they are on proprietary wired or wireless protocols.) These are purely local systems that cannot be attacked by every scumbag on the network.

Some stuff needs higher bandwidth than that, and they are OK using TCP/IP if well done and most of the pro level stuff is. A lot of consumer stuff very much isn't. For instance cameras generally need to be on the local network for video streaming purposes, but they are horrible security-wise in general. There's been so many security issues reported with them. And all these small companies doing little IoTs doodads probably don't remotely deal with security in any comprehensive way. They are probably struggling to get the product done before they run out of money.

You really need to cordon off that stuff on a separate LAN to be safe, but then of course they can still be used in DOS attacks unless you prevent them from making outgoing connections. And your average user isn't competent to do either of those things.
