Here’s this week’s IoT news:Get this overview in your inbox every Friday our newsletter.

Have an Eufy security camera? your video is not safe. Given what’s happening on Twitter, there’s no need to headline another tech company. But there’s one courtesy of his Anker, the company behind his Eufy brand of connected devices. Eufy claims that the video from his smart home camera is encrypted. That’s good — if it’s true. Unfortunately, it’s not really that secure. A hacker has revealed that Eufy cameras can view his streams using the VLC Media Player app and the unique address of his Eufy cloud server. Anker denies this possibility of his hacking into The Verge. However, a writer there tested the hack and was able to see live footage from his Eufy camera. , I personally shut down these cameras.The Barge)

Learn how to build an event-driven IoT architecture. It might sound like homework, but this tutorial from Amazon is worth reading. rest assured. This is a level that is understandable enough. At the same time, it provides enough detail to clarify how various Amazon Web Services (AWS) tools process sensor data. More importantly, you can get insights from that data as quickly as possible. I also like the best practices for building event-driven solutions from IoT data. They are applicable both inside and outside the AWS world. (AWS Architecture Blog)

AWS IoT improves device messaging. It’s the big AWS re:Invent show this week, so we’re doubling down on Amazon news. AWS IoT now supports his MQTT5 message broker. MQTT is a commonly used IoT data standard, with version 5 approved in 2019. Fortunately, you don’t have to use MQTT5 on every device. Amazon says the new he MQTT5 protocol can be used in combination with the older version 3. The updated standard provides faster message processing, load balancing of message reception, and device acknowledgment. (Amazon)

The Ecobee app may not be recognized. OK, with the Ecobee mobile app installed, it’s pretty clear what it is. But did you know there is a major user interface change currently rolling out in the app? In early 2023, Ecobee will push the same interface to its older thermostats. I’ve been using this new interface since I reviewed the latest Ecobee Smart Thermostat Premium and I love it. Changing settings and viewing temperature data just got a whole lot easier. Expect to see it in your Ecobee app soon. Next year, the new interface will be pushed to the voice-controlled Ecobee Smart Thermostat, Ecobee 4, Ecobee 3, and Ecobee 3 lite models. (Ecobee)

Drought Countermeasures with Smart Agriculture: I had no idea that 70% of all reported freshwater use is used to grow crops. But I learned a lot more than that from his recent Inverse article. By simply monitoring soil conditions, farmers can use the data to intelligently water their agriculture. This allows him to reduce water demand by 20% to 72%. It’s a wide range, but saving water is a good thing. I also didn’t know that placing sensor antennas underground can have a significant impact on data transmission. This post is worth reading for these tips and more about agriculture IoT solutions. (reverse)

New York City buses are AI certified. New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is upgrading its buses with artificial intelligence. These buses are not self-driving. Instead, we use AI to predict when the bus will fail before it actually fails. The MTA began testing the AI ​​system on 326 buses in 2019, but when did the number of broken down buses actually start to decline? The bus that should have been there was repaired before it broke down. (Gothamist)

Need a reference guide to global IoT cybersecurity regulations? While this is aimed at device makers, it is also very attractive as a consumer of IoT devices. We have a public GitHub repository listing all IoT cybersecurity regulations around the world by country. At the moment we only have a list of 16 countries, but hopefully it will grow over time.It’s interesting to read how different countries approach the same problem. These details are available via links in the repository. These links point to regulatory information that is publicly available but often difficult to find. (Github)

Create a weather station for Home Assistant. i also know more homework. However, many readers use Home Assistant to power their smart homes, so I would like to introduce you to this DIY project. You can also get real-time weather data using ESP32 modules, atmospheric pressure sensors, 3D printed anemometers, and basic rain gauges. You have to build the project yourself, but all the code to make it work is provided in this tutorial. And your data will look great in the Home Assistant dashboard! (hackaday)
