    Smart meters are a real boon for burglars.

    If the usage information can be retrieved from the smart meter or the utility company’s web site by cracking into the customer’s web account, it is very easy to see a pattern when there is minimal power consumption and therefore the time period when the property is most likely vacant.

    And if the burglar alarm is internet connected as well, well it might be possible to crack that because of careless password protection.

      Not just for burglars, but any hacker looking to have some fun.

      So I guess in the very near future, hacking a smart meter, like hacking drones, will be for fun and profit.
