People who know me would have a good laugh at that. At work, they do their best to keep me (and my ASD/Aspergers level of social skills) away from customers !

I can see that this will be an area needing some work before the system goes out for "mass market". "glitches", hardware replacement or additions, etc could all mean some (re)pairing in the field.

For techies like us, some arcane command line tool is OK - for the average person who still advertises to everyone within WiFi range what ISP's router they use might struggle with anything more than "press button on A, press button on B, etc ..."
