Hacking Smart-Homes

Neulich ging ein Posting durchs Web über gehackte Autos inklusive Brems-Manipulationen und sowas. Hat mich nur so halb angemacht, ich habe kein Auto und die Dinger interessieren mich bis auf wenige Ausnahmen so rein gar nicht. Aber ich besitze (teilweise) ein Haus und interessiere mich allgemein für DIY und… Home Improvement. Und Poltergeist ist einer meiner absoluten Lieblingsfilme:

“I can see all of the devices in your home and I think I can control them,” I said to Thomas Hatley, a complete stranger in Oregon who I had rudely awoken with an early phone call on a Thursday morning.

He and his wife were still in bed. Expressing surprise, he asked me to try to turn the master bedroom lights on and off. Sitting in my living room in San Francisco, I flipped the light switch with a click, and resisted the Poltergeist-like temptation to turn the television on as well.

“They just came on and now they’re off,” he said. “I’ll be darned.”
