A Milwaukee couple was totally creeped out after a hacker took control of their smart-home system.

The hacker turned up the thermostat to 90 degrees and then spoke to the couple through a kitchen camera and played vulgar music through the system.

Samantha Westmoreland and her husband believed someone hacked into their Wi-Fi and then their Nest system.


Google, which owns Nest, says the system was not breached and the couple's password was most likely compromised.
