Thats because of a new law in Pennsylvania, which will soon require companies that offer “smart home” services to register with the state.
Under the new law, home broadband providers like Google, Microsoft, Apple, and others will have to provide a “network monitoring report” to the state, and if they fail to do so, they could be fined up to $1,000 a day for failing to do their part.
The Pennsylvania State House passed the bill last week, and it was just passed by the state Senate.
The bill, which was approved by the full Pennsylvania House, will take effect July 1, according to The New York Times.
Under the new legislation, companies like Google or Apple that offer smart home services will have their services “licensed” under a state law that requires companies to provide their “home internet services” to customers.
Under this licensing, they can collect certain “consumer data” that includes IP addresses, web addresses, and web pages.
If a home service provider doesn’t provide these information to customers, the law requires them to provide it.
The new law also requires companies that provide “smart homes” services, like Google and Apple, to provide the report to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).
If a smart home service doesn’t comply with the licensing requirements, the service provider could be subject to fines of up to 100 percent of its annual operating revenue, the Times reports.
The legislation also includes an exemption that would allow smart home providers to provide services to customers without a license.
The exemption allows companies that do not require customers to register as a service provider to provide them with services that they are “licensed to provide” under the law.
Under that exception, companies that don’t have a smart-home license can offer smart-enabled products and services to anyone without registering as a smart service provider, including customers that don�t require a smart device.
Under this provision, smart home products and service providers can also offer services that do qualify as smart home devices.
If companies that sell smart home goods and services are licensed to sell them, they must provide smart home functionality to customers that qualify for the exemption.
But the law does not apply to home security services.
These services are not “licensed as a wireless telecommunications service” under Pennsylvania law, according the Times.
Instead, the state requires that smart home companies provide their services as “connected home services” under an exemption for “smart” home products that are not connected to the internet.
This means that companies that supply connected home services to consumers will have an exemption to comply with Pennsylvania�s license requirement.
As it stands, the bill is still in its final form, and the state will have until September 30 to pass the bill.
This is a major victory for consumers who have been fighting for this legislation for years, and for tech companies that are increasingly becoming more and more involved in the home internet market.
