Abstract: Advancement in communication and information technologies and their seamless integration has led to the emergence of the concept of Internet of Things. A variety of electronic devices, including sensors, actuators, displays, computational elements come together to form a network things those interact and exchange information is termed as Internet of Things (IoT). The devices in IoT communicate with each other and provide the users with automated and customized services. The IoT based electronic environment creates an automatic Smart Physical World termed as “Smart Home Environment”. The concept of Smart Home is there for some time now. It is designed to make life of human beings, particularly the people of old age and women, better and secure through personalized smart services through information processing and automation. These Smart Homes facilitate the devices and systems to communicate with each other and are controlled automatically in order to interact with the household members and improve the quality of their life. The SHEs are heavily dependent on Internet based services and therefore they are always required to be connected to the outside world thereby creating concerns for security. This paper discusses different security threats, issues and measures regarding SHE's.
