what the inside of a consumer’s home looks like, the size of their home, and potentially a
               consumer’s income level.

               D. SOLUTIONS?

               When a consumer registers their device with iRobot or even downloads the app, they or forced
               to accept the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy, otherwise they aren’t able to download it to their
               device. It appears that consumers are forced into giving up this data. Incorrect.

               iRobot provides users with the option of “opting-out” of the data sharing feature within the iRobot

               Home app by disconnecting their WiFi or turning off Bluetooth functionality.

               Ironically, the truth is that we create our own pile of dirt. By purchasing these smart devices,
               albeit Roomba, Amazon Echo, Google Home, or other products, we implicitly allow these
               devices to monitor, track, and learn about us. Consumers are all about hands-free

               communication, especially when its efficient. Consumers expect their respective devices to live
               up to their marketing reputations and as such, don’t question how it’s able to do that. Society is
               buying into privacy intrusions. The question is how much privacy do we expect to give up? Are
               consumers waiving their constitutional right to certain protections within the home?

               Smart’s smart for a reason. Convenience. It trumps privacy.
