Wyze Robot Vacuum
LIDAR! Everyone needs a vacuum with LIDAR! LIDAR is basically a spinning laser on top of your vacuum that spins around 6 times a second mapping out your home to 2,016 points in your room. Cool This is the same technology used in some driverless cars and you can have it in your vacuum! The Wyze App allows users to set virtual boundaries to keep the vacuum away from off limits areas. Want to vacuum while you are away from home? Use the app to track your vacuum in real time as it cruises around your house. And yes, we checked, those lasers spinning on the top of the vacuum aren't likely to blind you.
O que pode acontecer se algo der errado?
This robot vacuum from Wyze doesn’t have a built-in camera. Instead it has room mapping sensors and LIDAR lasers. These are generally a safer bet than cameras in your home. However, researchers found that LIDAR robot vacuums can be hacked to and used to spy on voice conversations, even without a microphone.
One concern we did find with Wyze is in December 2019, they suffered a huge data leak that exposed the personal information of 2.4 million security camera users when they left a database unprotected for 22 days. That is not good, not good at all. Fortunately, Wyze jumped on fixing their epic goof, which is what you want to see when something like this happens. Hopefully, Wyze won’t have any more data leaks, especially ones involving any data this robot vacuum collects about your home.
What’s the worst that could happen? It would be pretty terrible to have your cool LIDAR robot vacuum hacked, the LIDAR used to “listen” into top secret conversations about your banking account numbers and travel plans, and then bad guys use those hacked conversations to rob you blind. That is very unlikely to happen. Still, it seems it’s not impossible.
