    so what mod cons you have, are they worth it?


    seems pretty cool turning your lights on from your phone, but what are the hidden costs?

    Turn your lights on from your phone <laugh>

    My lights are voice activated, this ain't the 00's ffs!!

    I don't use Alexa though, all my lights, heating etc. runs through Google Home.

    I have them around the house, great for music as they all link up. Also great for phoning people, don't need your phone at all.

    Couldn’t think of anything more boring than spending a day looking for a piece of kit that turns lights on and off.

    They record every word said in the house. Google / Amazon have access to all of it.

    No.

    I bought my mum an Alexa for Christmas, it basically spends it's time saying 'Sorry, I don't know the answer to that one'.

    Other than that my daughter just tells it to play the Peppa Pig theme tune.

    Overall opinion = it's ****.

    I asked Siri who was going to win the Derby, and she gave me the odds, which was pretty cool

    Yep indeed. What's wrong with flicking the light switch? Lazy bastards.

    Reminds me of when they brought out powdered tea, for ****s who were too lazy to use a tea bag. Didn’t take off, surprisingly, because it was ****ing rank.

    You don't have to look for it or spend a day, just get them delivered and plug them in FFS.

    I can see why that might be a problem for you.

    It's not really but the thought of having my every word recorded and logged is not for me at all.

    Not hearing all that "if you've nothing to hide" ****e neither. Everyone has something to hide.

    But really it's the idea of being recorded and logged in my own gaff.
    Nah, I'm good turning off my own lights ta<laugh>

    The light app saves you money, plus it has some great ways to stop you getting burgled. Its not laziness as I still use the light switch. The voice stuff is a gimmick tbh, but surround lighting is cool when watching a film.

    It's one of those things that people seem to hate if they haven't got it or tried it.

    I personally think the benefits of having a Google Home far outweigh the negatives.

    In this world if they want to record you they will find a way.
