Two-Factor Authentication?

Any info on the roadmap to offer Two-Factor authentication? Perhaps with something like duo?

I'd even like to see Touch ID offered as a starting point.

I think that this subject is getting lost amongst the other priorities.

Exactly, how would you consider the implementation of two factor authentication?

So, we know that the HomeSeer license key is already a factor in this architecture design. But, we do not know the exact details of how the license key is used.

To add, I see it concerning that there is not a challenge/response authentication mechanism between my HomeSeer system and the MyHS "Cloud" technology. I just changed my password and the MyHS cloud technology did not require me to re-authenticate my HS system with the new password. It seems like that the security of the MyHS cloud technology to my HS system is not as strong as it maybe should be considering that there could be a negative impact to my Home if the MyHS cloud technology is compromised.

What are your thoughts?
