yea. the good the bad and the ugly.... for me the good was the locks...definitely good to see new and improved locks becoming available...the bad was the baby cradle jumpie thang...we don't want babies to be neglected now and be depressed adult... .the ugly was the devices in the shower...from personal experience I was fixing a light bulb and got electircuted but just a tiny bit cause I felt the electricity run through me and was wowed! by it. But I didn't get burned.... I just would rather not see a scene from alfred hitchock end up in bathtub or shower. So NO electrical devices in my shower is one of my ten comandements.

5:35 you know what they could have used that technology for Amazon packages? 🤔I thought I think that would have been a better idea or use it for both for your pet and for the Amazon guy you get a notification when he comes to your door and if you don't want your package to be stolen open the door let him throw it on the box and to your house close the door if you're at work it's a great idea right.

Your Video ist great! *kudos*. The CES Products on the other hand are mostly BS with features nearly nobody needs. Instead of solving real problems of SmartHome. Like interoperability and smooth UX over the product range. SmartHome is still no good UX, even it is around for decades now. You need several systems to accomplish all tasks and the companies make artificial hurdles to unifying systems just out of power plays and greed, screwing customer experience. If these problems will not be solved -not tried or seemingly solved, but really solved- SmartHome will continue to be a niche for people with a lot of time and nerves at their hand. So sad ... fu their greed.

MicroLED is the future of Television. And 8K remains a SCAM. It is straight science. You cannot see 8K unless you have a TV that is a minimum of 150". In a theater with a giant screen 8K would be great, but at home - you can't get the benefit. The bigger the "K" number, the bigger the screen needs to be for you to see it. 4K is the zenith for home viewing.

The water powered speaker will have 1 drawback, loss of water pressure. The turbine will need to steal power from the water pressure.

If the new Benjilocks have the same bad design, don't use them. Most smartlocks can be easily defeated by a strong magnet. Just place the magnet at the same height as the knob, and move it away from the lock. That movement will 'draw' the deadbolt with it and therefor open the door.. All the smartlocks that I have checked out, only have one actuator which allows for the magnet trick. A 2 actuator design where one actuator crosslinks the other actuator would make it very difficult to use the magnet trick. 99% of the smartlocks have nothing to do with security..

I recently started to think about getting into automating basic things around my apartment on a budget, and I found your channel and absolutely love the content. Though sadly, almost all of the recommended sensors and items (such as Wyze) aren't available in the Netherlands without paying a huge premium, and no idea what else to look for :(

I think the biggest move in smart home tech needs to be getting all the control inside the home - move away from cloud, external servers etc completely, there is way too much dependence on external servers. One big advance would be to put some effort into things like a stable ZigBee network so devices remain connected better, and suffer less from WiFi interference. I like the Twinkly LED's though and the TV's look good.
