When I arrived to work today, they talked about password protected vacuum cleaners.
Why would a vacuum cleaner require a password? I didn't dare to ask them, I would probably have found a way to offend their stupidity over buying into crap they don't need. :D
@urusan I don't know. Why would a robot vacuum cleaner need a password? To protect guests from making the owners home cleaned?
A second one is so that a child couldn't operate it and get harmed by having their hair tangled in the machine or something.
I don't have experience with those, so I'm just guessing.
@hund if we’re talking about a robot vacuum cleaner: to prevent unauthorized access to your apartment’s map, to prevent messing with settings such as schedule or forbidden areas, to prevent running it at night, etc. 🤷🏻♂️
A robot vacuum cleaner is a nice tool 😊
