    The network operated slow-cooker is no problem.
    .
    The same kind of controller you use to turn lights on an off for security is embedded into the crock pot. It then only needs to have an Ethernet or wireless connection and be able to process four commands:Off, High, Medium, and Low.
    .
    The crock pot’s Ethernet connection receives an order by SNMP from the house’s server as it gets messages from your smartphone apps.

    Then Bob’s your uncle.

    Anyone see the ad where the Dad closes up the house after the irresponsible kids? I can understand being able to turn the electronics off but how does it cut the water off?

    At least I’m no the only one that questioned that. Also what person old enough to drive to the vacation home on their own but is not smart enough to shut that all off beforehand?

    Actually, with the proper auto-draining system and remote controlled solenoid valves for the supply and drains I picture it would be possible.
    But it would be a lot of work and beyond many tradespeoples’ scope to design.

    If I were to design something like that myself, it would be easier to just go do it manually :P

    Turn on the crock pot..remotely? The work is getting the stuff in the pot. Since it is made to cook for 8, 10 or even 12 hours, when is she planning on serving dinner? Maybe she is cooking breakfast.

    You don’t need an Internet connection for a slow cooker. Either turn it on before you go, or if you don’t want it on that long, use an appliance timer to make it start at the right time. Now, using this to pre-heat the oven when you’re on the way home makes much more sense, but this is Alex we’re talking about.

    The problems crop up when someone hacks your pot roast.
