smartA company, named SAM Seamless Network, said smart devices are more vulnerable to attacks by hackers at midnight. This company is based in Israel and monitors IoT products. It also helps to prevent attacks on devices in USA, Germany, Israel and the United Kingdom.

The results showed that security cameras are the most attacking devices. The 47% of the cameras examined were infringed. The next most vulnerable devices are smart hubs, including Google Home and Amazon Echo devices.
