I read couple of these recent articles in Gizmodo on the challenges and issues being faced with a couple of smart home IOT devices/solution. I have earlier written about the launch and feature of these devices in CES 2015 launches.
The Smart Homes solution is dumb:
In this case, the reviewer has installed $1200 smart home solution comprising of a bunch of components from bulbs, hub and shades of Wink standard from various vendors. The excitement of smart home turns into a nightmare as the devices aren’t working out of box as advertised, setup is complex and the solution turns out to not worth the cost. It takes lot of efforts to get all of them working as an integrated solution.
