For AutoOhms that end up getting extended past 15 minutes my smart devices have turned back on after 15 minutes anyway and the AutoOhm doesn't end up counting. I think there might be a bug here.
It made me more than a little frustrated to have my computer shut off without warning, when up to now the rules of the game were that I'd get a notice the day before and then minutes before. This feature rollout is taking too many liberties with my devices: a single email and a single text message that doesn't give a time, is not enough of a notice to start exerting new control over my home. Less than one day's notice and manual "opt-out", is nowhere near appropriate for a company that has been given such an intimate connection to our homes. I haven't had time to investigate how opting out will impact my account, but I will be opting out of AutoOhms, I hope I don't have to also opt out of OhmConnect.
We've been doing OhmConnect for almost two years now and we love it, but I have to question the idea of sending ohm hours when we Californians are supposed to be staying home and not gathering in public. We generally use ohm hours to get out, run errands, visit the mall, whatever, just family time outside instead of being on our devices and regular home things. Now that restaurants and malls are closed, parks in our community are closed, basically everything is closed, just seems an odd time to be setting up times for people to shut the power off. Maybe it's just me, but doesn't seem like a time that our streaks should be at risk. I'm immunocompromised and not heading out during this mess.
