Part of me knows that my kids have no idea of how good they’ve got it. Plenty of things they have today would seem like space-age technology when I was their age in the ’80s. The shows you want to watch, whenever and wherever you want to watch them. Literally the entire collected knowledge of humanity available in your pocket. Or how about the ability to summon just about any song ever released just by shouting at a tiny little robot?
Smart home tech has truly made a world that gives my family more convenience than we know what to do with it all.
But all that convenience doesn’t come without a cost.
When we think of smart home tech, the obvious concerns come up—privacy concerns with hackers always around causing trouble. Or concern over what your kids will discover by accident without the proper parental controls in place. But the one thing we never think about is the safety you need with smart tech, with so many of us consumers woefully underqualified to know what we need to do to get it right.
