The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most extensive technological evolution of the computing network. This technology can transform the physical world into a virtual world for testing and emulation to evaluate the key issues present in the physical devices. This work aims to explore the security in IoT devices and demonstrates the security gaps in the behavior of the smart door lock. In this paper, we conducted two surveys to gather consumers' requirements about the IoT devices as to whether they do understand the security risks involves with these devices. Further, we carried out a denial of service attack on a smart lock device to demonstrate that such devices are not secure. This work also highlights the security weakness and suggest guidelines to improve the overall system using cloud and edge computing and authentication and access control-based solutions.
