"I would think motion detection (comparing two frames from a camera and looking for a change) would be useful. Or just watch them directly in your house."

Larry, thanks for this. I think the best way is IP based remote web monitoring using IoT based sensors or CC Tvs.

"If there is a bad actor in the chain of trust, the chain itself may remove the link and repair damage caused by it."

Larry, that's interesting. But how? Unless and until someone has to register a compliant for that; am I right.

There are ways to correct it.

If there is a bad actor in the chain of trust, the chain itself may remove the link and repair damage caused by it.

"They have ecosystem partners in their program like Sears and others. So they have developed their own chain of trust."

Larry, ok that's fine. Its matter of trust and obliviously someone may be there to spoil it

Re: risky
"Well, someone with overwhelming force can bypass physical security. With the camera, you at least get some idea of who did it and can use that to chase the perps down."

Larry, that's right. but thieves or hackers are much intelligent either to bypass cameras or fake them with different masks.

"Right, you can let "trusted" service providers in when you are not at home with this."

Larry, who is trusted? If the service providers are new to the market or customer; then how can be categorize them as trusted OR Not.
