I don’t trust smart technology

And now, I am convinced that the air temperature control unit is trying to control our life as much as our central Heating and Air Conditioning system.

Periodically I really worry that society is going to be overtaken by robots! We have become so obsessed with artificial intelligence and making high-quality technological advances in our lives that it seems like we’re simply asking for trouble; then I always do my best to keep things rather simple around our lake house because I am not a big fan of these intelligent gadgets. I would much rather have stupid appliances that weren’t trying to murder me and control my life. This is why I was actually reluctant when our kids bought myself and others a smart thermostat a few years ago. I really did not want the intelligent air quality control unit installed in our lake house because I did not understand how it was possibly going to help myself and others control our central heating, cooling, and air quality control component any better than I could. I don’t need help turning our thermostat up or down. I am fine with managing our energy expenditure and daily energy costs on our own. I’m just not sure why I need a special smart thermostat to keep our air quality and air temperature control devices in order; however, I finally broke down and installed the smart thermostat last month. And now, I am convinced that the air temperature control unit is trying to control our life as much as our central Heating and Air Conditioning system. The thing has decided that our air temperature should drop at 7 p.m. no matter what I tried to tell it. I feel like the central thermostat it’s trying to put myself and others to bed earlier every night. Why? Maybe so it can attempt to convene with our other appliances?
