Anyway, setup was a breeze apart from a slight issue with the firewall... yet again! Also, this thing is rather loud, and that's just the spoken stuff, not even the actual alarm!
Time will tell if this is going to work out for us, but if there is even the slightest whiff of misbehaving then I'm ready to take it down.

"It’s fine when your app crashes; at worst, you reboot and move on. But when you spend $250 on a connected door lock that your husband was a bit dubious about in the first place, and he comes home with his arms full of groceries and gets stuck on the doorstep because the lock didn’t open, you can’t tell him to reboot. That lock is going to get returned."

For instance, there's about a century of development, debugging, and user testing behind truly simple home technology like a cheap old light switch. So when you come home in the dark and turn those lights on, they turn on. It's an old-fashioned solution! But it's also affordable and dependable."

"...But when someone does care enough (about you, about the opportunity, about the work or the tool), the ball is in your court.."
