I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

@jpmens Totally agree with you. I have the same setup.

And I always have to explain myself to non-IT-people why I have such a setup 😢

@_xhr_ @jpmens Same here. I'm still struggling to counter the "I have nothing to hide" attitude.

@dirkolmes @jpmens I usually go with an analogy here:

"Would you allow me to install a webcam above your bed?"

"Hell, no! Are you crazy?"

"No. You started the silly discussion and you actually have something to hide"

Works most of the time 😆

@_xhr_ @dirkolmes @jpmens My offer is "I can clone your entire phone and put it on the internet for free. Since you have nothing to hide..."
