Smart home

T3 - - Hot 100 -

The nov­elty value of the smart home still ex­ists, even though there’s nary a home elec­tron­ics de­vice that you can’t hook up to your Wi- Fi and get speak­ing to the other gad­gets in your pad. But we’re past the de­vel­op­men­tal, “work, god­dam you!” phase, and Google, Ama­zon, Ap­ple and Sam­sung want to be the sole con­duit be­tween you and your things. Their weapons are ‘hub’ apps de­signed to sim­plify the in­ter­face be­tween you and the IoT, plus in­creas­ingly in­no­va­tive tech to tempt you from each other’s charms.
