The Internet of things is great until it blows up your house


Re: Deeper thought

Well, can't speak for the rest of the world but assume it would be similar to UK, but, for example, all central heating boilers/furnaces have to have a whole range of electrical and (I think) thermo-mechanical interlocks. So the external input to the boiler (from the controller) is just a "heat demanded" signal. And, sure, I leave my central heating on when I'm on holiday without worrying about the boiler exploding. (with thermostat turned down obviously - I'm not a CO2 monster!)
