Over the years, smart home technology has developed a lot and has become commonplace in many homes. From smart security cameras to smart locks, from smart speakers to smart displays, and even smart coffee machines-there is no shortage of smart home devices available. But not everyone is so impressed by a smarter lifestyle. Some people prefer to do old-fashioned things, while others may feel that their smartphone is enough to keep them in touch.
We want to learn from our readers their position on smart home gadgets. Do they have? Do they have a lot? Here is how they voted in our most recent poll.

What you have to say
Luc Lafanier: 12 Google speakers, 30 smart switches/dimmers, 10 smart plugs, 2 smart TVs, 1 smart fireplace, 2 smart garage door openers, 1 Nest Yale lock, hot tub Remote thermometer, 1 Rachio smart watering system, 2 Nest cameras, 1 Hello doorbell, 1 thermostat, 6 LED light bars for the deck, Bond devices for controlling our four wireless ceiling fans, some Chromecasts . I think that’s it. Yes, I have a problem.
Damian: I have nearly a hundred devices. Maybe we should establish an anonymous group for smart homes. Hi, my name is Damien and I am a smart device addict.
Craig Hewitt III: I have 6 in a relatively small house. Once you start, you can’t look back! Each room has one, and the living room has 2. 20 devices.
Dan Drake: I have a fairly extensive system, almost all of which are connected to and controlled by the Smartthings hub. Dozens of internal and external smart switches and plugs. Doors, windows, and even dog door sensors. Schlage door locks, tracking who comes and goes. Two Harmony Hubs control two TVs, garage door openers, and three Nest cameras outside. Nest thermostat. Nest Protect smoke alarm. Ring the doorbell (yes, I know it should be Nest, but I just used it for that long). The ring camera that has perched on the edge of my house for years is powered by an attached solar panel. Rachio sprinkler system. My latest acquisition, a high-end ceiling fan.
Digital Benny: Me, “Hey Google, turn off everything.” Google, “Well, turn off 107 things.”
Stanley Kubrick: not any. No need for them. Not long ago, we did not have 24/7 internet communication. Makes you wonder how we survived without phone calls, maps and text messages.
Sidney: Countless Home/Nest mini houses, two rooms with smart light bulbs, each room with a TV is also equipped with Chromecast, one TV with a Google TV, I am looking for that new doorbell.
Jon Boy: 10 smart bulbs, Eufy robo-vac, August smart lock, Google Home Mini, Google Home Max and Nest Hub Max. Oh, this all happened in the smallest apartment I have ever owned!
Bigly McLoser pants: I have two Amazon Echo Dots, but they are not that smart. I have to keep resetting them because they are not working properly. I have a few smart lights, but again, they often need to be reset. I have a robot vacuum cleaner, but it is stupid and I have to stay in the room while it is running to prevent it from getting stuck somewhere. The only thing that can continue to work is the non-Amazon (Aqara) curtain motor connected via the Aqara M2 hub.
