Living with the ghost of a smart home’s past

It was hard moving out. There was obviously all the logistics and packing and the team of security movers who came in to unplug the sensors, wipe the feeds and clear the database. That took a while. But no it was the emotional toil of leaving that we found difficult. This house has been out first home. It was the place we brought Alex back to. Every wall bore the record of our baby growing. Marks of childhood. The story of our family. Soon a new family would move in.. They would cover up those marks with their own data.
