Smart appliances may not be worth money in long run, warns Which?
If software is not kept up-to-date, items can lose functionality and become a security risk

The consumer group said that smart fridges, dishwashers and tumble dryers cost hundreds of pounds more than their conventional counterparts, but in some cases could be rendered obsolete after as little as two years.

Without regular updates, smart items could lose functionality and security could be compromised, leaving the owner’s network open to hackers. Many of the products will still work without their smart features, but not all.

its quite sad to read that! it is a very uncertain time regarding holidays, most people like ourselves go out every evening for a meal and drink, plus we spend in the shops and bars through the day, the 14 day quarantine when arriving home does not bother us, but the thought of seven days on arrival is probably not acceptable to us, it would spoil the holiday, it only needs a few new cases of the bug on the islands and i feel they could not cope with it, i would hate to see that happen, so its fingers crossed for September, but i have my doubts as to whether we would chance it flying, it was bad enough before with all the ignorant plane sneezers who never cover up!
