Simplisafe keeps advertising in podcasts and every time they mention their "video verification technology" I want to yell "JUST SAY THAT THEY CAN TAP INTO YOUR INTERIOR CAMERAS REMOTELY DON'T GIVE IT A STUPID MARKETING NAME."
V excited to look forward to the same news podcasts doing stories on the inevitable hack/misuse, complete with shocked "I didn't know they could do this" customers.
@sungo Back in the day, my parents invited me along when they had an alarm salesman visit. Dude did not appreciate me going "So... if you cut the phone lines before you break in, the only thing that protects the place is an internal buzzer?"
(My parents bought the alarm system anyway. I probably should have patented the deadman-switch concept I and my Hayes-compatible invented...)
@sungo Yeah, parents' one was long before the days of cellular. I assume that's what Simplisafe does, and generally it gets good reviews but... the weird hammering on "video verification" has finally gotten to me.
