7/11 was a part time job
There was a short story written by Ray Bradbury in the 1950s that was about a house with AI that kept cleaning and making meals and going about the daily routine despite the fact that a nuclear war happened and all the people living in the house had been killed. That story always reminds me of smart houses.

I could see that “following robot” technology being used to help with medical equipment. An IV pole or oxygen tank that you don’t have to drag around but instead just follows you? Awesome! Or for medical equipment (that creepy chair idea was on to something) For example there are many people who can walk for a few minutes but quickly become too tired and need a wheelchair again. If the chair could just follow the person then they could walk as long as possible but always have the chair within reach

This reminds me of that Tesla that caught fire the other day, and the driver got trapped in their car because the doors automatically locked when the power failed. I feel like a lot of smart devices really aren’t designed to properly account for emergency situations, aka when a smart device should be most useful. Like, it’s all fun and games owning a smart fridge until there’s a power outage and suddenly you’ve lost all access to your food in a crisis.

as someone with anxiety that can absolutely verge into the realm of paranoia, living in a smart house is my idea of hell. this shit is only able to respond to you because it's got cameras and microphones wired up constantly, and internet of things stuff has a habit of having the worst cyber-security on planet bloody earth. so not only is the house definitely spying on you 24/7 in hopes of selling you a new brand of peanut butter, but basically anyone else could be too! wonderful, excellent, exactly what anyone would want.

Yep and a lot of this stuff isn't even accessible to disabled people who would actually need it because a) it's all so expensive and just marketed at rich people and b) it would need updates/replacements which would also be costly and c) an inconvenience disguised as a "breakthrough in technology." There's so much potential for these things to be genuinely beneficial to society and yet corporations just choose profit and people buy it up regardless of the fact that you basically forfeit your privacy with these things. I'm already bombarded with enough ads I don't need my fridge to tell me what kind of socks are in season this year.

That isn't paranoia, that's just how it works. They're not exactly secretive about how they put cameras, microphones, in everything, and outright tell you "if you want this _inset minor convenience_ then you need to send all your information us". That is why I I don't use any tech made after 2010, and keep a shotgun to shoot anything that tries to connect to the internet without my say so. Another thing I don't like is the insistence to put tech in everything to the point of detriment. So that these companies can just brick all your devices if they want, except your devices also include your oven, fridge, door lock, cupboards, etc. Imagine coming home to all your food spoiled, or not even being able to open your fridge door, because the company went bust. Or even worse imagine not even being able to open your front door because the company discontinued your model of lock. There was a man in a tesla who nearly died not long ago because the door lock is fully automatic, there was a fire and power went out - meaning it was impossible to unlock to door and he was stuck inside - he only survived because someone noticed and kicked the window in.

What went wrong with smart technology is that it could have been so useful for disabled folk, but instead they make the tech super expensive, impractical to use, and they market it towards rich people who don't know what to do with their money. Overall just inaccessible.

If smart tech was used for disabled people, like people with angelman's syndrome, or something like that, or someone that is physically impaired, it wouldn't be tacky. As someone who is a relative of someone that is physically impaired, if we had some of these things, life would be a lot easier for them.

@skeletonwitch I was specific because I know a lot of people with Angelmans, and my relative, has stage three autism. If someone that had Angelmans had some sort of machine that allowed them to use something like a text to speech, without worrying about the price from all the rich people buying it up for the cool of it, that'd be awesome to see.

@Hollsy Exactly. If the rich people buy it all out, then the people that ACTUALLY need the tech won't have it. I remember seeing someone that bought a life support machine, and got popular for it, when that machine could be used to keep someone alive long enough for their family to say the last goodbyes, or keep them alive long enough for a treatment plan.

Too bad most "smart" tech doesn't actually solve problems disabled people have, our struggles are not seen as profitable enough. Just look at how difficult it is to get mobility assistance if you live in a home with stairs. Qualifying for a wheelchair can take years but since nondisabled people also use smart lights, those are now more affordable.

@Mel There exists a subscription for earphones today. You pay $5 monthly for use of your earphones, and if you stop paying they will brick them remotely. (And may sue you for not returning them, since you never owned them in the first place technically). Drew Gooden talked about it in one of his videos about buying stuff from Instagram ads. There also exists a subscription bike lock, which will not unlock at all unless you pay your subscription. I guarantee there will be subscription everything in the future, it's already happening. Owning things is becoming increasingly obsolete. You can't own photoshop anymore, it's subscription. When you buy games on steam you never technically own them - you just pay for the privilege of getting access to them; which means they can revoke access to all your games for any or no reason at all. This is the same for pretty much all other digital purchases. It is only recently that it has started to happen for physical objects too, but it is starting to happen.
Christian Faux

Some of these exist and aren't problems. Like a house lock, my folks house has an electronic keypad, battery powered. But when the battery dies the physical key works just fine. The passcode is just more convenient than fishing out a key every time you go in or out and easier on trusted guests. Plus it locks behind you, which is also convenient. The trouble is when you have something like a smart thermostat where the power company can shut off your heater if it needs to parcel out energy in a storm. And even that makes sense to a point. Point is this technology isn't inherently bad or useless, but it runs away with itself into pointlessness sometimes.

@• No and yes. I'm talking about indoor security cameras that work with either Bluetooth or WiFi. I'm not sure about ring cameras. But awhile back people had access to random peoples security cameras in houses. It has been proven that Bluetooth and wifi devices are vulnerable. A password might not help much. Idk why u think having a password on something makes it invincible when people get hacked daily and apps/soft/websites get breaches so much. Cybersecurity isn't just passwords.

Yup we're going back full circle now back to exploring analog solutions which means doesnt use chips or semi conductors because the prices have got so high due to shortages and the shortages happen because companies keep putting screens and processors in everything to put the "smart" label.

Slowly turned our house into a 'smart' house because my parents are getting old and it'll be easier for them to be able to operate things in the house by just speaking to Alexa or using their phone. Yeah, it's crazy because when something malfunctions, it takes a while to fix, especially when our internet connection is acting up, there are some devices that you need to reset/re-calibrate.

Tech house stuff I have - ring doorbell: pretty neat, I can see who’s at the door and talk with them, but I could live without it. People can text when they arrive and I can track packages on my phone. Although the security features are nice. - wine opener: mid, needs to be charged, I can just uncork wine manually, I didn’t buy it, my mom did - nest thermostat: actually really really nice, change temp from phone, control the temperature when on vacation, it tracks your phone and makes sure the house is the right temperature, reliable - Alexa: she’s a bitch, trying to get me to buy stuff, doesn’t listen to me, mishears me, probably spying but whatever because the government and corporations already know everything about you because of the internet Summary: when I own my own house, most stuff is gonna be manual, although I might get those cool clap lights, can’t fuck an epileptic person tho, cause clapping cheeks will definitely fuck with the lights

14:44 Yeah, welcome to most of East Asia where apartments end up so economically tiny that you don't have in-unit washers or dryers. Heck, sometimes you end up with a place with no windows, no fire escape, an ice box for a fridge, a queen size bed that takes up 40% of the room (but sometimes springs upward for extra storage, etc. That's not counting HK either, where some people pay the equivalent of 300 USD per month for one bunk of a bunk bed in a shared home of like 8 if I'm remembering it right. This is more so a problem within the big cities and metropolitan parts of places like Taiwan, South Korea, China, etc and you can get more "western style" (bigger homes in general) for cheaper prices in smaller towns and rural areas. Problem is, it's in a small town/countryside.
First Name Last Name
The problem with smart houses for me is that they become dated very quickly, okay now it’s modern, but in the future? I have a real world example, my grandma’s house has phones built into the house so you can call from downstairs upstairs. I’m not talking about a push intercoms, it was an earpiece that you’d take off and put to your ear and you’d speak into a microphone. I remember as a kid it didn’t work, the wires are basically coming apart. But to this day they are still there because they are attached to the electrics and the wall. I’ve checked the model seems to be from around the 1910-1920s which means it was installed with the house. Imagine in a hundred years the tech advancement and what your smart house is going to look like to everyone else
TooManyInterests Vor 27 Tage
I've got an electrical book from 1915 and it describes a telephone intercom system like this as an alternative to a servants' bell system, recommending it as it means "The servant does not require to make a journey to the upper rooms all the way from the service rooms to get an order for some trifling affair; the order is received with the signal for attention, and only one journey is required." So it might have originally been used as a servants' call system. It doesn't use speakers because those hadn't been invented yet! With how reliant a lot of this smart stuff is on external services like apps, I wonder how much will still be functional in even a few decades. At least with the older intercoms as long as it hasn't physically failed it will continue to work, but with all this connected stuff what happens when the company running the service decides it's no longer making a profit on it?

Honestly I was impressed they talked about the accessibility a smart house could do ...until they just went along to talk about something else almost immediately. They would've did better if they had someone disabled show how accessible having a smart house would be. It would be life-changing and very useful. Smart cities were supposed to do the same thing, but as you can see, we just gave people even more reasons to be paranoid about the government watching them...because of course we did. Tech is just marketed towards those with hardcore cash to spend, with no initiative for making lives better, just actually dumber.

Yeah, I'm in my mid-20s and I feel there's a bunch of unnecessary stuff already... I think smart homes have great potential, especially for disabled people but as was already said somewhere in the comments... compatibility, lifetime and price... and companies are self-sabotaging themselves by not (properly) addressing those problems first... Maybe I have a boomer attitude when comes to those things but I don't need nor want smart stuff in my future house... even things like a time switch for lights in the room would be a pain for me cause even though it's nice on paper, you don't need light at those specific times every single day... sometimes you may need light sooner, sometimes you're just chilling on the couch and don't need light at all... Also, Alexa and similar systems are cool but if you're not an English speaker or just don't speak English on regular basis, the system is quite impractical and for me it's easier to just stretch my arm or make a few steps and do the thing by myself...

Jonks Vor Monat
@amentrison You're right, it's not an easy thing to avoid. My suggestion for you is to look up your products on Google for vulnerabilities and exploits - check if anyone has reported a security problem with that particular brand of camera. In this case, research will be your best protection. If you need to use IP-based cameras, putting them on a different network/subnet can at least protect your other devices. This is also just a good practice if you have a lot of internet devices (in my household, all gaming consoles are on their own network, and some of our computers are fully isolated on their own networks). And as always, keeping all your software & firmware up to date will help minimize risk.

Not sure what we're supposed to do about it. My grandma has dementia and has a caretaker come into our home almost everyday, so we need cameras around the house, in front of the door, and in her room. As much as I wish there weren't cameras everywhere, we kind of need them.

living in the 80s didn't really suck, it was actually pretty awesome. Personally, I think they were pretty spot on with the TV they just didn't know we would be using soundbars instead of speakers on the side, TVs at one point did get as thin as they thought but they didn't realize they would get thinner, and I gotta say that they even nailed the swivel thing holding up the TV! If only they knew we'd be using our phones to operate all the different devices.

in my opinion, these systems are a net positive. think about it: by making use of technology most people already have in their pockets, it eliminates the need for the infrastructure required to produce and reload fare cards and/or sell tickets. this reduces overhead of public transit networks by cutting the costs involved in repairing and maintaining card kiosks and/or labor for ticket clerks, as well as the cost of actual fare cards and tickets themselves, which could mean lower fares and more money to spend on improvements to the transit system itself. in addition, it makes introducing new public transit systems easier by reducing the cost of implementation for cities. it also reduces waste from tickets and fare cards, which is always a plus! sure, it does suck when your phone's dead and you need a bus ride, but lots of transit networks still let passengers pay with cash or card if necessary. i think the pros outweigh the cons overall

so my house came with one of those video camera doorbells and in 2 years it's broken 3 times, I've never once used the fancy video camera thing and I was so sick of calling someone out to fix the thing that I just bought a $9 doorbell from the hardware store and glued it over the fancy doorbell. It works great and the sound agitates my dog waaay less.

I mean if I try to think of purposes for a "smart" fridge, I would probably pick some way of scanning every item I put in my fridge (like facial recognition but for milk) and then it'll read the little expiry date or use by date and warn me if the milk has gone bad or if my salad is wilting, etc. "Hey your eggs are becoming science experiments you wanna throw these out or what?" But am I going to scan every item or remove it from the fridge when I can't even clear my voicemail box? Probably not.

@BustBoy333 I exclusively use the sink. It's not nasty. The city goes through a lot of trouble making that water potable. What do you only drink bottled? The people who take it from droughted cali and sell it in rainy washington? or do you waste money on purifiers when the city has already purified it? There's no reason not to drink water from the kitchen faucet unless there's something wrong with your pipes.

Man a smart mirror just sounds so tedious. Imagine, instead of just looking at all of your clothes at once in a closet, you now have to individually upload pics of each article of clothing you buy to a mirror, slowly swipe through the options and hope that none of them are actually dirty, and then just....wait for the clothes to appear or something after you select your outfit of the day? Yeah that's much better than a stinky old closet. I mean maybe if your washer and dryer were connected, and the dryer actually folded the clothes afterwards and sent them to the closet, but still, a touch screen mirror to select one of the 3 shirts I ever wear is a bit much.

Turns out all the Samsung smart fridges have an issue with the ice maker. Every month or so the Samsung people have to come in and repair the entire fridge. Repairs are free but still a hassle. We were told to contact samsung and get a refund because no amount of repairs will actually fix the fridge. You guys aren't missing out on anything.

Tbh all these comments about touching a manual soap dispenser with your dirty hands is confusing me... you can just press the pump down with your wrist. Or your forearm. If I have something like paint on my hands or I've touched raw meat I NEVER touch the pump with my hands, I'll just use whatever arm part isn't dirty. And with raw meat, don't you clean up your work stations after cooking it regardless? Wiping down a soap pump doesn't seem too difficult. Automatic isn't worth the extra hassle of potential packaging/battery waste and inconvenience when the electricity goes out imo.

@Rafael Santos so do you touch shit with your bare hands then because you can just wash it off? You can't be sure you got rid of all germs. Plus what about when you need soap to wash one small area of your hands, or when you need to clean them of something like grease or paint that's messy but not unsanitary? Or you just need to top up on soap to finish the job? Too bad, now you've touched the dispenser so you need to repeat a full thorough washing just because of the dispenser germs.

I'm a disabled person that uses smart tech and mostly I'm just frustrated that companies can't just stick to one long term ecosystem so all of my things can communicate without me having to buy a new hub every year. Smart homes have great potential to make my life easier but I feel like all the time saved gets spent figuring out compatibility issues and troubleshooting - and then there is the eternal dread that the manufacturer can just brick your device because they went out of business or they just want you to upgrade. My bet is that we'll never get a true smart home because capitalism will always ruin it.

Something that's bothered me for a while now -- visions of the future almost always focus on a domestic setting. This technology never leaves the house, or your own body. There's never a vision of what the technology could do on a public, civic scale -- improving the lives of an entire community rather than just a single family household.

That's not really true. If you look for example at care homes, many automation technologies are already being employed. You've got fall detection, automatically alerting someone if an elderly person falls. Bracelets wirh chips for people with dementia, and doors open for them depending on which places they are allowed to enter and time of day. Then there are screens that can show familiar scenery and pictures depending on who passes them, to help them be at peace. Those are pretty useful.

Tbf most of the major problems of a city have been solved in the modern era. Such as heat, sewage, and plumbing. The Reality is we got running water, we don’t have to worry about our waste, and our houses are heated. The three largest problems solved. Anything else is mostly solving inconveniences. Which personally I don’t think tax payer money should be wasted on it if it’s not necessary to life. If you want a cool trinket like a smart city pay for it yourself. It’s a waste of money just for something that translates to constantly being watched by police.

Smart houses could be useful for disabled people, if most smart products weren't crazy expensive and difficult to set up, and there are definitely products that are useful (like doorbell cameras).

@Captain Sarcasm Well, I guess it's more of a setup for a dystopia than a dystopia. The dystopia is distinguished by suffering and injustice in the society, not by over surveillance itself (although that's a common theme since dystopias are often totalitarian). I suppose you could argue that our overreliance on technology has already been a detriment to our society from a lack of privacy, the potential use of personal information for discrimination/profiling, the creation of epistemic bubbles, etc. Buuut, I doubt the households themselves are suffering great injustice from having customized ads shoved down their gullets.
