The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming visible at home, in the city, within enterprises. Everything is connected and with all this connectivity, comes great responsibility. In this talk, we raise awareness on Privacy, Safety and Convenience threats IoT is currently facing. We argue that the wireless network can play an active role in minimising these threats, in particular with the advent of small cells.
