We live in an advanced world and many people say that the future is already here. This is the actual truth because we have gadgets that we never even thought about a decade ago. We can connect almost everything in our household to the Internet and make it work like a giant machine based on our needs and preferences. We are sure that this is helpful but it could also be a burden when something goes wrong. The list below gives plenty of examples related to this and it is worth sharing!
1. The faucet
It sounds like Alexa would be of great assistance even when it comes to pouring a cup of water but we guess that this can become a problem. Trying to overcome the problem this person described sounds simple – disconnecting the device.
2. The bed
Well, this is something new to us and we guess that not many other people have this kind of ordeals as well, It appears that this is a nice feature to have as long as it is working as it should. We had no such issues ten or twenty years ago.
3. The remote
Here is how new technology can become a huge problem once it gets into the hands of the new generation. Toddlers can always prove to be way ahead of their parents when it comes to operating different gadgets and devices.
4. The route
Wow, this is something we never actually thought about before. It seems that as helpful as technology is, it can also put people in danger. In this case, one person who worked out by running had their details exposed to a complete stranger.
5. The data
Well, trying to provide the ultimate control can be hard for some devices but this company has it all covered including a miniature drone camera flying around your home. We guess that privacy would be out of the question in this case.
6. The money
It seems that this is one rather funny situation and this is why the person who commented on the original post decided to put such a caption on it. There is no need for a gadget to tell you if you are angry or not because you know it when it happens.
7. The Roomba
Well, this is one of the scenarios that can affect almost every one of us because most of us have one of those robot vacuums at home. When they lose their connection, they become unpredictable and hard to control.
8. The iPads
Now, this is one image that we wish we never saw. These iPads are meant to be used for a virtual doctor’s visit and that visit is also the last one in some cases, too. This is quite unfortunate and sad to see.
9. The coffee
We never thought that the day will come for us to have coffee mugs that were actually connected to the Internet. In this case, they can control the temperature of the coffee inside but only when they are working.
10. The advice
Here is yet another example of how people are sometimes willing to compromise their own security for the sake of better connectivity. Allowing such devices to have access to your home is not a good idea.
11. The front door
Smart homes have many advantages and we understand that but there are also several concerns that people should consider when going digital all the way. Trying to make your life easier can be the kind of thing that can backfire.
12. The firmware
We understand that many household appliances and devices are greatly enhanced when they are connected to the Internet but we will never understand why would someone need to have a digitalized Christmas tree.
13. The room
Here is yet another example of how technology could actually get in your way. Instead of bringing you comfort and ease your life, a smart home can also make you regret you ever opted for such extras in the first place.
14. The performance
The examples of how connecting your home to the Internet is sometimes not a good idea are too many to list but we guess that most of them are related to lighting and people’s inability to switch on or off the lights at their homes.
15. The note
Trying to take advantage of new technology is sometimes hard when the gadgets you thought would help you actually stand in the way of your everyday activities. We are sure that this person probably installed a conventional buzzer after this day.
16. The brush
Wow, times really have changed and we guess that those who were lucky enough to follow all the new things that become “the new normal” are not as lucky as they thought they would be, especially in cases like this one.
17. The credentials
Ten years ago, nobody would actually believe that they would have to log in with a password in order for their vacuum cleaner to do its job. It is true that people sometimes try to have the newest and most amazing things only because they feel good when they brag about them but it would be nice if they could also use the features they paid for. This person probably enjoyed their vacuum until the moment they forgot the password.
18. The doorbell
Here is yet another hilarious example of how technology is not actually the best solution to some fairly simply everyday activities. Having a doorbell and making it easy for people to ring it has never been harder than it is today because these high-tech systems are not as helpful as they are sometimes. In this case, one person was baffled to make this discovery and we understand his confusion.
