Вот бывает же, оказывается это уже подмечено много лет, прямо относится к умным домам и даже имеет абревиатуру:
I started in home automation back in 1992 when we were building a home in Atlanta. The system that I use, HomeSeer, has a software module that allows me to hook up the phones so that I can pick up any phone, hit "pound" and it will get on the line and say "Yes, sire." And then I can say something like "Turn on the master bedroom lights." ...
My wife, she's always had sort of a tentative take on the home automation. In Atlanta, things never quite worked right or I was always experimenting. But now she's grown to depend upon it. In the home automation community, which is mostly males, there's a coined acronym: W.A.F., the Wife Acceptance Factor. People are always trying to find automation routines that have a high W.A.F.
