Re: So, Secure

They have absolutely nothing informative on their website. It is entirely marketing and a tiny bit of help. Their crowdfunding page was a little more helpful.

_What does Oomi think about Privacy?

We know that privacy must be taken incredibly seriously when it concerns your home. We will always be transparent about how your data is used to help you. Our policy is that your data belongs to you and should be used to make your life better.
If you have any concerns about your privacy please reach out to us and we will answer all of your questions as clearly as we can.

Does my data leave my home?

Oomi processes your data anonymously in the cloud. This allows you to control and monitor your home from anywhere in the world. It also allows your home to use our advanced intelligence algorithms to start automating your devices.

Do I need to have my data processed in the cloud?

No. We do everything to secure the privacy of your data. Still, we know that some people would prefer to avoid it all together. You are free to opt out of anonymous cloud processing at any time. Features that require cloud processing will no longer work. You may opt back in later if you choose.

Is my data secure?

To create a secure system we use 128-bit AES encryption for every communication, both the communications between devices inside of your home as well as those between your home and the cloud. We also have six additional unique security measures put in place to make sure that your system is safe. You can learn more here._


Honestly i see no reason for cloud processing in about anything, and the “new” thing seems to be “wow i want your data but i don’t want to pay for all the cloud time anymore so here get this hip new edge computing device” when we don’t need cloud or edge stuff anywhere. (Also, specific to the home control thing: light bulbs. There is only one reason you sell a “smart” bulb and not just a fooken socket adapter. Thanks for making more money on nothing and generating more toxic waste. Good job.)
