Dishing on Teched-Out Houses

"My friend Eric Cotsen has a man-cave in Malibu, Calif., with so many gadgets that you couldn’t list—much less explain—them all in 18 pages. A lot of good they’ve done me. Once, I couldn’t lock the front door on my way out of the house. The touch-screen system, which commands the house (including door locks) like a high-tech martinet, was ‘‘down.’’ So I sat around for three hours until a technician arrived and rebooted the system. —Fred Bernstein [The Moment]
