mjg59 | Privacy expectations and the connected home

We have social norms against bugging our houseguests, but we have no social norms that require us to explain to them that there'll be a record of every light that they turn on or off. This feels like it's going to end badly.
I've mentioned before that I would like a warning when I enter a house that uses devices like these, but I know that would be unpopular with people who bought the devices. Especially with those people who don't really understand how the devices work and who exactly they are trusting. I guess at this point I should just assume I am always under surveillance outside my own home? I'm not super excited about this version of techno-utopia...
