I understand that the CNet Smart home is all about connectivity, new, fun, useful devices and possible applications out there to help make one’s home smarter.

Considering that, I was wondering if the Cnet team would look into electrical privacy glass type products. I know that most manufacturers, for such products, haven’t necessarily connected their products via smart home hub yet. But there are some manufacturers that seem to be using smart phone to help manage, control and make such products smarter.

Any chance of the CNet team looking into electrical privacy glass or films?

Wait, you sometimes have to get up and change the battery? I´m toooo lazy for that…

Kenny Crayton says:

If you’re gonna demonstrate how noisy or not noisy a product is how about getting rid of the horrible background music.

john M says:

I’ll stick with manual.

Kevin Gates says:
