Modern buildings are often equipped with universal bus systems. The purpose of
these bus systems is to control the functions of houses such as lighting, climate
control and heating.
In this talk we present a case study that shows how privacy issues evolve out of
an untypical utilization of those control systems.
As a controversial example, we show that we are able to tell, who does not
perform proper hand washing by sampling data from the control network and
applying an old-fashioned Monte-Carlo simulation to the problem.
