I don't think most of these IoT devices have any significant processing power to take advantage of.

More dangerous than a DDoS would be if someone was to hack into IoT stuff like internet connected switches (you can get them pretty cheap) and turn them all on/off at once. If a bunch of people have installed internet connected heaters, kettles, etc. You could cause a massive power spike which could cause significant damage to infrastructure.
