Now that's the interesting point about IoT.
China doing some tests to break the Internet? LOL
We also need to start disconnecting systems. If we cannot secure complex systems to the level required by their real-world capabilities, then we must not build a world where everything is computerized and interconnected.
A for and against essay about the internet | …
Here's the thing: Governments will get involved, regardless. The risks are too great, and the stakes are too high. Government already regulates dangerous physical systems like cars and medical devices. And nothing motivates the U.S. government like fear. Remember 2001? A nominally small-government Republican president created the Office of Homeland Security 11 days after the terrorist attacks: a rushed and ill-thought-out decision that we've been trying to fix for over a decade. A fatal disaster will similarly spur our government into action, and it's unlikely to be well-considered and thoughtful action. Our choice isn't between government involvement and no government involvement. Our choice is between smarter government involvement and stupider government involvement. We have to start thinking about this now. Regulations are necessary, important, and complex; and they're coming. We can't afford to ignore these issues until it's too late.
John Locke (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
#1. Computers are already everywhere and in everything.
#2. They have microphones, video cameras, GPS, and other sensors.
#3. They are already connected to the Internet.
#4. Government has neither the strength nor the desire to overcome the lust of all the peeping toms that want to violate the privacy of our homes, vehicles, businesses, public spaces, and even remote mountains, hills, forests, and nature preserves.
#5. All regulators want is to a back door in everything, as if there aren't already 1001 back doors in every device on the market. And they are already slobbering at the prospect of all homes to be fully IoT-connected with on the Internet.

Your approach is like a Band-Aid on a mortal gangrenous wound. Particularly as regards the irreversible trend to connect everything to the internet. The internet is no longer ours. It will require total war in meatspace to find, defend, and maintain a place to live and work with even the merest shred of decency or modicum of privacy from the cyber war zone and human-trafficking red-light district which the internet has become.
