“The EC speaks zigbee and zwave so it can already talk to just about any smart object out there. This vastly increases the number of supported objects in the wild from day one.”

Ok I get that but what I don’t get is how can the firmware of these devices be upgraded to be more secure? Seems like you are building a device (Ethereum computer) that checks the blockchain and validates someone’s identity and if the conditions of a contract were met then it sends authorization to the zigbee controlled device. But I can send my own authorization and bypass the Ethereum computer altogether. Your security is only as strong as your weakest link.
