This week Kevin and I discuss Amazon’s big security install reveal and how it made us feel. Plus, a smart home executive leaves Amazon and Facebook’s rumored smart speaker makes another appearance. China is taking surveillance even further and Kevin and I share our thoughts on the state of the smart home, and failed projects. We also answer a reader question about a connected door lock camera. This week’s guest Chris Harrison, an assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon University, shares his creation of a smarter wall, one that responds to touch and also recognizes electronic activity in the room. It’s a fun episode.
