  1. The system was designed to make passing any law, difficult. What was not planned for was, political parties... where running our government became a team sport with We The People are relegated to spectators who foot the bills for the games they play. In George Washington's Farewell Address he warned his fellow Americans about the dangers of political parties. He said, "The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frigh
  2. I highly recommend. Currently, $125 on Amazon SMART HOME INTEGRATION. The Wi-Fi Smart Color is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana, and more, and apps like IFTT Must have 5-wire (C Wire) system configuration.
  3. I agree...they can be quite annoying.. I like the automated stuff much more!
  4. Oh yeah...I forgot our Roomba (Dusty)!! That is the ONE piece of technology that my wife absolutely LOVES!! Now, a "Poopba" for the back yard would be a lifesaver!! With 2 large dogs, it would have to be the size of a Volkswagen Beetle!
  5. I guess that everything that is operated remotely can be considered "smart" but things that work by voice command or automated routine as what I like. Damn...as a society...we are lazy....at least, I guess that I am! Even the Nest doorbell....I have it to see if I need to get off my butt and answer the door!
  6. I just like the convenience... "Hey Google....Good Night": Den TV turn off, thermostat goes down, & accent lighting comes on. "Hey Google....I'm up"...Thermostat changes...Time, date, forecasted weather, commute to work time, & calendar events are read while I'm shaving. Leave the house and the thermostat changes the temp. Come home and the thermostat changes the temp....If it's dark, entry lights come on. ...stuff like that.
  7. Definitely "smart" devices but I utilize my "smart" devices for convenience...I'm lazy
  8. My wife commented that our dogs would be the first thing that anyone would take but yeah...I don't really use the "smart" concept for security. Maybe I should.
  9. Yeah...I understand. I'll probably be the guy who gets them AFTER a break-in. Right now, my dogs are my security.
  10. Other than the Nest Max in the Kitchen, the one thing I haven't incorporated is, indoor cameras. It's just something that I don't think that I need. I guess that I don't "need" any of it....but I like it! The best addition (IMO) was the thermostat.
  11. I tried to do a search but couldn't find this topic.....I could be wrong. It has happened before. Personally, I use Google Home and have included quite a bit. Google Nest Max in kitchen Google Nest in Den Chromecast for Den TV Paired speakers in the Den. Hue lighting outside and in Living Room, Den, Kitchen, & Dining Room Nest doorbell Honeywell thermostat Hubs in all bedrooms and bathrooms How do you like it and have you run into any problems? Do you use all of the features available to you?
  12. That nasty ol' President Trump is at it again!! How can you trust a guy like this?
