Homes with integrated state of the art technology are considered Smart Homes. A smart home has special systems which enable remote control via remote computer or smart phones. Inside a Smart home, a legacy metering system called Smart Meters are installed offering new functionalities such as remote readings of power consumption, and different time usage of tariffs. Preliminary research has already indicated vulnerability attacks on smart meters which affect the privacy in smart meters. Privacy issues includes information leakage in real-time consumption data that is recorded by the smart meters.
