Zombies. The walking dead returned from the grave to feast on soft buttery brains. Smart homes, a technology that allows for the automation of certain tasks such as turning on lights or changing the temperature.
What do zombies and smart homes have in common? Very little. However, when the zombie apocalypse comes and zombies eat your neighbors (sorry George!), your neighborhood’s smart home technology may not be entirely useless.
Just like in AMC’s The Walking Dead and numerous other zombie movies, should the shambling hordes come, you’ll want to do what you can to survive. According to the Zombie Research Society, May is “Zombie Awareness Month,” so SiliconAngle’s staff has worked out ways you can make smart homes work for you should the dead come knocking.
