Why would anyone need to control home temperature "from anywhere in the world"? Technologically it is simple to do, but is it practical? Unlike the wired systems, you pay for the connection. Moreover, IoT devices have poor, in many cases non-existent security. Just look at all too common security breaches and hacks at already protected banks, governments, automobiles and so forth. Unfortunately, there are too many malicious people in the world just looking for ways to hurt someone. IoT vendors blinded by technological gimmicks are only beginning to wake up to security issues.
