knocks my "Idiots or Twonks" into a cocked hat.

Seriously, this should be essential reading (and comprehension) for anyone thinking of buying this sort of crap.

I know that soon everything is supposed to be 'connected' but why?

I'd expect the Home and Contents insurers to start loading premiums for people who secure their homes with this stuff.

Then there are the Adverts for Alexa that tell it to use Hive to do something.

How secure will that be if all it takes is for someone to shout throught the letterbox, "Alexa open the front door for me please"

Madness (welcome to the house of fun) and it won't end well.

At least my home won't have any of this crap for the forseeable future.
