Resideo: Not Hacking, Environmental Issue Caused Mass Outage

By John Honovich, Published Mar 14, 2022, 08:08pm EDT (Info+)

A mass outage of Resideo / Honeywell Home's Alarment service has caused major problems and conspiracy theories touted by Ken Kirschenbaum and Peter Goldring of a ransomware attack.

Resideo has strongly denied these claims in a phone call with IPVM, admitting that it was an "embarrassingly simple" issue with their environmental system that caused the outage.
