A smart home is supposed to make your life easier. Doors open when you’re near, lights turn on when you walk by, TVs rise up on command and everything can be powered by a phone. This goofy ad by Dutch insurance company Central Beheer pokes fun of the convenience of smart homes by showing how it makes things stupid easy for robbers too.

Obviously it’s never that easy but smart homes might be a little too welcoming.
