Re: Open mesh Wifi
I'm not sure I really want major systems in my home to be connected to the internet... Though I just added a wifi-enabled garage door opener to tell me when my door is open or closed...

Re: Open mesh Wifi
I've seen some movement towards making smart devices smarter and cross platform-- with 3rd party apps like IFTTT. If a device supports both IFTTT and Alexa and Google and Apple... then I guess there's some cross platform compatibility.

Re: Open mesh Wifi
@mhhf1ve I think it due to the Amazon and Google war about smart devices... as Amazon Alexa now have less and less support for using Nest thermostat - what I see on my end - when wife try to use Alexa on her Amazone fire to control heating in the house...

Open mesh Wifi
Back on topic.. I wish more WiFi enabled smart devices adopted open standards so they were interoperable. Some of my Amazon devices can't talk to my smart plugs -- and it doesn't seem like it should be so hard to do.

Re: Speakers + cameras
I still have cassette tapes .. and no equipment to listen to them. :( I suppose someday I'll try to transfer some of them to a digital format because cassette players will be harder and harder to find.
