Smart home devices are fantastic inventions. They allow us to remotely control our lights, doors, home appliances, and more. It can also be automated, which can also potentially save energy. The problem with smart home devices, however, is that they are also prone to hacking due to their internet connection.

Unfortunately for Amazon, it looks like the company is facing a lawsuit over which, according to John Orange, an Alabama resident, ring cameras appear to be vulnerable to hacking and Amazon's failure to ensure that theirs Devices are safe has led to the lawsuit.

He claims that his ring outdoor camera has been hacked where a stranger could access the camera's speakers and talk to his children about it. Ring had previously responded to Orange's complaints, saying there was no evidence that the infrastructure had been compromised.

They also suggested that some users reuse logins that may have been injured in the past. Orange felt was unacceptable because it essentially blamed customers. The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, breach of privacy, negligence, unjust enrichment and violation of California's unfair competition law. The company declined to comment on the lawsuit.
