Ditto. But I do want a smart home and I've had one for years. We still 
use the older X10/Insteon protocol, which I suspect is more convenient 
than a smartphone because I don't have to speak commands or find my 
phone to launch an app. Sensors and timers manage everything, there's no 
network connection at all, and I hardly ever need to flip a light switch.

Not to mention, I don't want my refrigerator to know what I'm eating and 
I have zero interest in turning on my crockpot remotely. They're 
*supposed* to cook all day.
