Vlog #53: Help! The Internet killed my toaster!
A major outage at Amazon Web Services this morning left millions of people with broken home automation devices: door locks, heating, lights, ovens, even doorbells.
Don’t let your home automation system be dependent on external services!
I always keep two principles (or rules) in mind when building my own systems.
Rule #1: No external dependencies.
Rule #2: Mechanical overrides.
