Once upon a time, I had a remote for my fence that failed to work. I thought: in this time of the Internet Of Things, shouldn’t it be possible to control it with my smartphone? Then it got a little out of hand. But it became more and more interesting. Today I can chat with my house. All the lights, music and gates are integrated into one system. I can even log if the mailman really rang the doorbell before putting a note in the mailbox.
