One of Nest Hello‘s best features is it’s ability to recognize strangers and lock the door, supplying its customers with a sense of safety and security. Though, this aspect recently started awry when a Nest apparently misstep a t-shirt for an intruder.
While wearing a Batman shirt, B.J. May claims he was locked out of his house by his Nest when the device picked up Batman’s face instead of his own.
May shared a screenshot from his nest app on Twitter on Monday. “My @nest bell automatically locks the front doorway when it recognizes a face it doesn’t distinguish. Today it didn’t recognise me, so I went into the app to analyse and…”
May explained in several other tweets that he was easily able to unlock the door with a pin code, and could have opened it with his telephone as well, so it was no big deal.
He likewise explained that while he appreciates that regular keys wouldn’t have locked him out of his home, he likes having the ability to remotely permit his children in and out of the house.
We’re happy May didn’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars to a locksmith to get back into his house, we’re simply troubled that Nest has no knowledge of Gotham’s greatest vigilante.
