Re: this is just the start of a very ugly battle for your home
Hooray! I was beginning to wonder if I was the only person left who was avoiding the "smart home" hoopla. Ours is a small flat and when I want to to turn anything on or off I have a portable digital control centre right in the palm of my hands. Actually, it IS the palm of my hands, and it does a splendid job of controlling my digits as I tackle such ferociously complex tasks as turning lights on, putting the kettle on, adjusting the thermostat on the AC. THey can force an IoT hub into my cold, dead hands.
