Which luxury home office? Luxury master bathroom

Luxury home offices and apartments have come under scrutiny over security issues after a security expert said the devices used in many of the homes are not secure.

The Expert Panel, an industry association, said in a report released Monday that the devices can be easily hacked and could be used to steal sensitive data.

The devices in the homes, some of which were sold to buyers, can contain the PIN code that allows access to the home’s wireless network, the panel said.

The devices also can be used as an access point to a hidden camera, which could allow someone to remotely activate a security camera, the expert said.
