    What next, 'smart' light switches created by an electricity company that turn your lights on all day?

    Meanwhile in South Africa, I'm sitting here thinking: Hmm, it's colder than usual today. (It's currently 31 grades Celcius)

    A bug caused it?
    Sure someone at the firm wasn't thinking "we need a quick boost for this months profits, RELEASE THE UPDATES!"

    I can just imagine the timers working to switch all your lights adn heating on while you are out and switching off for enough cool down for when you arrive home.

    My home Linux server would show that on its temperature graphs (even the hard drive temperature sensor would be sensitive enough).

    Re: Hive 'smart' thermostat has a dumb moment, sets homes to 32C

    Ah, probably explains why mine suddenly jumped to 32C when I was trying to make it boost for 1 hour on my iPad.

    Fortunately, I have a fully working brain and was able to turn the temperature down without panicking, making a drama out of it, tweeting daft comments or demanding compensation.
