What can we say, it can't always be good news around here. Perhaps it's just the leeriness of those artic 40-degree days Seth has been battling in Florida. Or maybe it's the chest cold I've been battling. One way or another, this did not appear to be a very bright week in the smart home.
Topics discussed include a smart thermostat that leaves you out in the cold, a call to pull a popular smart home product from the shelves, a trough of disillusionment following CES, and a pretty glaring flaw in one particular wireless security system.
Sounds fun right? You may want to pour a drink for this one...
Talk to you next week, likely with some better news. Thanks for listening!
