In this episode I’m looking at smart home technology. From remote controls to the Clapper, we’ll find out where it began and where it’s headed. I’m also joined by none other than Bill Gates about how climate change and optimizing energy usage play a part in revolutionizing our homes.

The segway at the very end from the current video to the wearable tech video, just by gesture, suggestive language strategically followed by the LTlost pop up by Marques, is the well thought out content execution I'm here for 🙌🏾. Enjoying your content from South Africa 🇿🇦.

but for that to happen price also need to come down... at least in one of the things as most of population is middle class or below that economical line. There should be price comedown in real estate or the energy producing tools. even electric vehicles also very pricey at least in my country. but we are in transition period.

I feel like it has taken super computer level computing power and hyper complex programming iterated over decades that we just now are getting some useful smart home applications. The ideas were made much earlier but the convenient solutions were so hard to build.

Historically I'm not a fan of anything LTlost Red touches. I was hoping this would be an exception, but it's not. Felt disjointed, surface-level and overproduced.

I live in Toronto and the f**king automated door system on my building is absolute garbage LOL the f**kers just never seem to work and have extreme lag times when they just so happen to somewhat work I miss the good old days when I could push a door open in a quarter of a second no problem instead of waiting 10 seconds for a Computer to acknowledge my presence. Just saying but some of this automation is not for the best.

Hey, your harsh I've been paralyzed since 1986 & those technologies bundled in the butler in a box, worked better than Alexa in some few cases, but when you can't move your arms let alone hands those devices are life changers, Combine them and you get butler in a box, which allowed me to turn on TV, light, and more with just your voice was awesome. It evolved slowly and now is obsolete. Same with Voice Recognition, Dragon Dictate was a separate unit and now is called Dragon naturally speaking and Voice recognition for Google, Apple, Microsoft still can't touch it for accuracy, and learns by it's mistakes and cloud does not. Ps.. Need to get Dragon again installed, "This was brought to you one click at a time plus word prediction. Hope it's readable. I wrote this before I saw the end please don't rip in to me :-)

Late comment. But you need a Retro Tech on shoes. From L.A. Gear to Nike self lacing shoes. It’ll be your most watched retro tech.

Smart homes are the diet soda of helping the environment. Oh wow your house has better insulation so you don't have to run the AC . How about YOU DON't run the AC . Here in so cal we lived in a home with no AC for the better part of 15 years and go through the summer just fine by going to the local pool etc. Give things up instead of finding out how to extract more out of the same resources.

The moment they say 1995 and I think that was a good year! I was a jr. in High School life was good then Marques says... "Yeah, I was two. I don't remember that year, AT ALL." and all of a sudden I felt like Carl Fredrickson. lol

Compared to taking out your phone, unlocking it, opening the app, and finding the light options, that clapper is still superior tech, so long as you only need 1 or two lights.

the solution to losing a remote is now an iphone or android device that you might also lose versus losing a remote to locate a remote.

my 20 year old remote is way smaller than the one in the video. I still use it with my home theatre. I watched the 1999 movie The Matrix on that home theatre with surround sound (Dolby Digital). you may have heard of it. He's in the John Wick movies and still awesome as ever, also there's another Matrix coming out.
