I would like to ask the alphas here about specific examples of too much versus not enough. When does automation become an inconvenience?
I will start the discussion here with an example:
The example is that of a door. This door is locked. I have 2 ways to unlock the door.
• I can choose to physically use my door key
• I can allow the door to unlock itself using authentication tied to a smart-device.
This scenario does not actually exist for me, but I am using it to steer the conversation. I type that part because I want to avoid folks chiming in just to tell me locking my doors with electronics isn’t very safe. My REAL doors are manual… so your argument is invalid.
I’m simply putting together a list of things that would be better if automated, and those that are deemed very inconvenient when controlled via smart-device. Returning to our first example: I will have doors on my domain. Doors of which YOU the visitor CAN open and unlock. Would YOU prefer to have that door UNLOCK itself, or would you rather use a virtually-physical representation of a door key (card / other)
