Smart Home Killer (2023) Movie Script

- Morning, honey.
You gonna be on time for school?
- I don't know. Probably not.
- Your lunch is there.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- I love you, Mom.
- Mwah! I love you, too, honey.
Have a good day.
- I will.
I'm gonna hang out
with Meesh after school.
- Okay, sounds good. Have fun!
- Thanks.
- Harper?
Did you forget something?
Oh, my God.
Who are you? What do you want?
What do you want? Oh, my God.
Please let me go.
You can take whatever you want.
what is your emergency?
911, what is your emergency?
I'd like to report
a home invasion.
Yes, I am loving
this new home.
Overall, it's been
a smooth transition.
But I am sorry
the place is still such a mess.
We're still unpacking.
- I understand.
Moving can be stressful.
The last time I was here,
the house was empty.
You have really
good style and taste.
- Thank you, Mr. Karloe.
- Please, Devan.
Look, I just wanted
to personally welcome you
to your new smart home.
You are now part of the Karloe
Smart Home Solutions family.
Have you had time to use
any of the devices?
- I really love
the coffee maker command.
Can I get you something
to drink?
- No, thank you.
I can't stay long.
I have a meeting
with the mayor to discuss
upgrading her security options.
She's using an older system.
It's-it's good but, it is
nowhere near Soteria's level.
Soteria can perform much more
than just making coffee.
She's my life's work.
And you are performing
a great service
by being part of the beta test.
Before now,
myself and my assistant
were the only people
in the world
who had the privilege
of accessing her systems.
And now you do, too.
- It's an honor.
And the extra security
was really important to me.
- Mm-hmm. I can imagine.
Soteria's mainframe monitors
you 24-7 with cameras
and the latest
infrared technology.
The house and grounds also
have detection sensors.
- I feel better already.
- Soteria, run a security check.
security check.
All doors and windows secured.
Alarm currently disarmed.
- She could answer
most anything.
She's connected to the internet.
And I have set up
the entire network
to use verbal commands.
And for added security...
... shatterproof glass
throughout the entire house.
It's even in the steam room.
And, almost forgot,
titanium locks controlled
by voice command,
so you can relax knowing
that you're in charge.
- Speaking of relaxing,
I'm quite excited
to try out the steam room.
I bet you are. Then you will
be happy to know that
you could access it remotely
so it heats up while
you swim in the pool.
And then when you get out,
it's ready to go.
Amazing. Amazing.
Devan Karloe,
you have a meeting with
Mayor Fields in 30 minutes.
- Thank you, Soteria.
She watches me as well.
I apologize, Leah,
I have to run.
But my assistant, Wesley,
is on his way
and he will continue
with the demonstration.
- I can't thank you enough.
- Of course.
Thank you.
Your comfort and safety
are my number one priority.
Stay safe.
Hey, glad you called.
How's the move going?
- Meesh, I don't know.
I kinda hate my new school,
I've only made one friend
so far, her name's Nikko.
- Aw.
- She lives nearby.
She's actually really nice.
- That's good.
Tell me about the house.
- The house is fine.
My mom is all excited
because it's a smart home
and there are these stupid
hubs everywhere.
- What?
- And they glow,
and they make noise,
and they listen in on you.
Actually really creepy.
- I'm not gonna have
that in my room.
Visitor detected,
front door.
- I'm just gonna
call you back, okay?
- 'K, bye!
- Bye.
- Soteria,
unlock the front door.
- Ms. Tomkins?
- Hello.
- Hi, Wesley Mora,
Karloe Smart Home Solutions.
- Hi, Wesley. Please come in.
- Hi. Thanks.
Uh, did Mr. Karloe
get a chance to show you
any of the smart devices yet?
- A few.
As I said to him, we've just
been so busy unpacking.
I know we just we moved in,
but I've got a housewarming
party coming up this weekend.
What was I thinking, right?
Please, after you.
- Great, thanks.
So, I read over yor
answers to our questionnaire,
and I see your number one
priority is security?
- Yes, that is correct.
- Yeah. Well, if you want
security in this town,
Mr. Karloe's the go-to guy.
- Harper, would you come
downstairs, please?
- There's no need to yell, Mom.
- Uh, Harper,
I'd like you to meet--
- I know. I heard
on the speakers upstairs.
- Is it Harper?
Right, hi.
How are you enjoying
the devices?
- Um... not really my thing.
- No? Not a fan?
- No, I feel like
all of this tech
kinda makes people
a little lazy.
I can uh, turn on the lights
myself, thank you.
Ah, well, you just gotta
get to know your house,
that's all.
- Why, because Soteria's named
after the Greek goddess
of safety and protection?
What, doing my job for me?
That's exactly right. Yeah,
Mr. Karloe loves the details.
Soteria offers convenience
with security
in a unique blend
of functionality
for today's busy lifestyle.
She also controls your home
entertainment system.
After a while,
she'll get to know your likes,
your dislikes, and even
be able to anticipate
your mood based
on your behavior.
- I love it.
It's amazing, right, Harper?
Oh, great.
I see you got Charlie working.
Oh, actually,
here's another great function.
So, as you know, every time
you enter or exit the house,
Soteria locks the doors, yeah?
- Yes.
- Right. Uh, can I see
your cell for a second?
- Uh, Harper, would you mind?
- Not at all.
- Thank you.
So, to unlock the doors,
you can ask Soteria
or as long as your cell's
within five feet,
sensors unlock the door
for keyless entry or exit.
- Amazing. I love that.
- Oh, nice.
- No filter.
- Oh, I like it. The real deal.
- No, I... meant you.
- Wow. Oh, all right.
- Uh, Wesley,
if we could continue
the demonstration,
that'd be great.
- Right. Yeah, of course.
Uh, so as you know,
all the appliances
can be set on a timer
or activated from your cell.
Stove, coffee maker.
- Yes.
- Toaster, blender.
Fridge even tracks
your inventory and purchase
habits and, get this,
knows when your food items
will run out
and the AI reorders
for delivery.
- Hmm. Wow.
- Wow.
When it can do our laundry,
I think I'm gonna be
impressed then.
So, any questions or... ?
- I think that's it. Thank you
so much for stopping by, Wesley.
- Oh, it's my pleasure. Yeah.
Well, if you do have
any questions, concerns,
anything, just feel
free to contact me.
- Great, thank you.
- I guess I'll be going now.
- Um, I'll walk you out.
- Okay, great. Thanks.
Lemme see your phone.
All right, keep your back
to the door and don't say a word
until I tell ya.
Let's see. Hold on one sec.
Okay, great. We're good.
- Um, what did you do?
- It was just a quick
little hack.
I'm sure she's listening
and watching,
so put the front cameras
on a loop,
paused the DVR from recording.
Looks like we're just
standing here
and now we can do anything.
- So, come on, how can you not
love this house?
Spent a lot of time
in there setting up
the network with Devan.
- This place is just
really creepy.
Always watching
and listening to us.
- No, you uh, you don't
like to be watched?
That's very funny.
- Why don't you give me
a call sometime?
I put my number in there.
Maybe we can go out
or something?
- Uh, yeah, sure.
We would just have to keep it
on the down low.
If my mom ever found out,
she would totally freak.
- Oh, gotcha.
Well, we can do that.
All right, well, give me a call.
- Okay.
- I'll turn off the loop now,
you're good.
- What did you
and Wesley talk about?
- Uh, nothing.
- Harper, you know he's
at least in his mid-20s.
- Okay.
- And you're 17.
- I'm 18 in four months.
- Honey, please don't
make me worry
any more than I already do.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- Okay.
And let Troy know we need
touches on these photos
for the Langsbard account.
We launch the web campaign
on Wednesday. Thanks.
Great, thank you.
These look great, thank you.
- Uh, hi.
- Oscar.
- Are you busy? I can come back.
- No, come here!
- You sure?
- It's so good to see you.
- Oh, you too.
- How long has it been since
we saw each other in person?
- I don't know. A few years
at least, maybe more.
- I think so.
- Yeah.
- You look great.
- So do you.
- Thank you for helping me
get this job.
- Hey, all I did was ask Amy
to look at your resume
and take a meeting.
You did the rest.
Yeah, it's a great agency.
I've been a client here
for about five years now
and they've always done great
work for my company. Yeah.
- It feels good.
- Yeah.
I brought you some of our latest
supplements for you to try.
- Thank you.
Harper's gonna be so excited.
She's obsessed
with your green juice.
It might be the reason
I chose to reach out to you
when I was looking to relocate.
- Was that the only
reason or... ?
- I love what the graphics
department has done
with the logo.
Gave my company
a fresh, new look.
- And wait 'til you see
what Raj from social media
has planned for relaunching
your web channel.
You're gonna love it.
- You know what?
I knew you'd like working here.
- You know me,
I love a challenge.
- Well, speaking of which,
do you still golf?
- Whenever I have time.
Which is never.
- Oh. Well, there's a few
good golf courses in the area.
We should go sometime.
- That could be fun.
- I'm sorry, let's...
I just can't get
this image out of my head.
Your break-in
at your old house.
I'm so sorry you had
to go through that.
- Thank you.
I'm okay. They caught the guy.
- Okay.
- But I can't help feeling like
it could happen again anytime.
It was broad daylight.
- It must have been awful.
But I hear this new
security system you installed
in your new house
should keep you pretty safe.
- It's helping a lot. Thanks.
- Listen, if you have the time,
maybe we can grab a coffee.
Catch up.
- I'd like that.
- Okay, let's make it happen.
- Okay.
- Okay.
I'm gonna see Raj.
- Great, I'll be here.
- Okay.
It's good to see you.
- You too.
- All right.
- Thanks. So, when are you
two getting together?
- We've just been texting.
- I'm thinking of asking him
to hang out, though.
- Do it.
- Should I?
- Yeah, call him.
I wanna see what he says.
- Should I do it right now?
- Yeah.
- Okay.
Right now.
- Hey. Wondered when
you'd call. What's up?
Um, hey. I...
Um, I was gonna leave
school early
and I was wondering
if you would wanna come over
and swim in our pool?
- Where's your mom?
- Um, she's at work.
So, you would have to show me
how to loop the cameras
like you did the other day.
- All right.
I'll come pick you up.
- Okay, great.
Um, it's gonna be me and
my friend Nikko, is that cool?
- No, no, no, no.
- Hey, the more the merrier.
Be there in 10.
- Great. See you then.
- You asked me to call him.
- Yeah, but don't invite me too.
- But it's gonna be fun.
And we're gonna go swimming.
- Yeah, third wheeling
is so fun.
- Would you rather be here?
- Okay, you're right.
- Yeah, I know.
- This place sucks.
- It does.
- I hate this.
- Okay, okay,
hold on one second,
we're just beyond the edge
of your detection zone.
Can I see your phone?
I've gotta disable the sensors
in the cameras. Thanks.
- It's this uh,
cool little hack where you can
set the cameras in a loop
and then,
the whole place
is gonna look empty.
- Okay. Pretty sick.
- Magic, right?
- That's it?
- We're good.
- Thanks.
- It's like we're not even here.
- Hey,
you were right.
I really love this copyright
for the website.
It clearly showcases
my company's mission statement.
- Just give me a second.
- Sure.
- Hey, what are you doing?
I got two more
appointments today.
- Well then, you have time
to come and join us.
- I'm thinkin' about it.
I'm thinkin' about it.
- Come on.
- Just let me send
this email quick.
Go get a pool noodle.
Hey, it's Harper,
you know what to do.
- Harper, I just got
a text from your school
saying you're missing
your afternoon classes.
Where are you? Call me.
- Everything okay?
- Yeah, should be fine.
- I'll let you get back to work.
- Okay.
- I'll see ya.
- It's a beautiful day.
Come on, let's go, party people.
Let's go.
It's dance party time.
Ooh. Yeah!
- First we kick, then we swim.
- Go, hacker.
- First we dance, then swim.
Come on. Get the blood flowing.
Yeah, yeah!
- Woo!
- Come on, everybody out.
Let's go.
- What the hell
are you doing here?
- Oh! Heh.
- You're back! Hey!
- I was just... I was...
I asked him to come over
and show me how
the pool system works.
- Right.
- Soteria, stop the music.
If I ever see you here again
or you contact Harper,
I am calling the police.
- Oh, wow, no.
- Mom.
- No, no, no, I'm just here
to help. That's it.
- Really, how would your boss
feel about your help?
- No. I'm sorry.
You don't need to call anybody.
I should've, uh...
- Go. Use the side gate. Go!
I don't even know what
to say to you right now.
I had to leave work early
to come home and deal with this.
I was worried something
happened to you.
Did Wesley mess
with the camera settings?
- No. I did.
- Really?
- Yeah.
- Funny how you weren't
interested in learning about
the network and all of a sudden,
you know how to alter
the cameras.
- By the way,
this is my friend, Nikko.
- Hello, Nikko.
- Hi.
- Do your parents know
you're skipping your classes?
- I guess they'll
find out soon enough.
- You've reached Devan Karloe,
please leave a message.
- Hi, this is Leah Tomkins.
I'd like to speak to you
about your assistant, Wesley.
- I said I was sorry
about ditching school.
You don't know
what it's like, Mom.
There's this group of girls
who really hate me.
- Well, do you want me
to speak with your principal?
- No, I'm gonna deal with it.
- Well, from now on,
I want you sharing your location
with me on your cell.
- Are you serious?
- Yes.
- I don't get any privacy.
This house already
knows everything that I do, Mom.
It's not fair.
- It's not about being fair.
It's about you doing your best
so that you can finish out
your senior year on top.
- I never wanted to move here
in the first place, Mom.
My whole life is back
in Parkview
and you couldn't even let me
graduate with my friends.
- Harper...
this move was the best
thing for us.
- Was it? Or was it
the best thing for you?
- Now that's not fair.
- Well,
it's not about being fair.
Alert, alert.
Smoke detected.
Alert, alert. Smoke detected.
- Harper?!
Soteria, stop the alarm.
- What happened? Did you
forget to turn off the stove?
- I don't know,
it might have been
another malfunction
with the network.
Are you okay?
- Yeah, I'm fine.
- Come on, let's get you
some fresh air.
- Soteria, unlock the back door.
- Not so in control now,
are you Ms. Tomkins?
So, it sounds like
the creative review
is on target?
Excuse me.
Hello, Devan.
- Leah,
I received your message
and I wanted to
profoundly apologize
for Wesley's abhorrent behavio.
- My daughter is 17, okay?
I don't want Wesley to go
anywhere near her, ever again.
- I understand.
And we'll discipline him
- Thank you.
- I would like to apologize
in person and check Soteria
to see what happened
with your stove.
- That would be great.
- Great. I have some time
this afternoon.
Would that work for you?
- Um...
you know what?
Yes, I can work from home
this afternoon. How about
I meet you there in an hour?
- Perfect. I'll see ya then.
Stay safe.
- Thank you.
Wesley, you can come in now.
Mrs. Tomkins called
and told me about
your horrible lack of judgment.
- Yeah.
- I also know about the cameras
and the stove and what you did
at her house.
Did you forget that I track
everything on my network?
Once I was notified,
I reset the cameras
to my original settings.
- Devan I... it was just--
- I should fire you.
- Fire me?
Don't forget that I know
everything about your network.
You really want me
to go somewhere else?
- You're on probation
for one week without pay.
- But Devan, come on,
I'm sorry, okay?
I made a mistake.
- You don't play with my network
like it's a toy. Ever.
- "Lee-ah"?
- "Lay-a".
- Right. Patrick Rollans,
accounts manager.
We didn't get a chance
to meet so I thought I'd stop by
and introduce myself.
- Sorry I didn't come to you,
I've just been so swamped
since I started.
But it's so nice
to finally meet you.
I didn't get a chance
to talk to everyone
at the staff meeting.
- Yeah, I noticed.
So, how are you settling in?
- Good. Um, yeah,
everyone has been
extremely welcoming, so...
- Good. Glad to hear it.
- I'm just gonna be working
from home this afternoon,
but if there's anything you need
from me before I go?
- Working from home
is quite the move.
- Oh? How so?
- Well, I mean, you're new here
and you're not taking
the opportunity
to meet everyone, and you're
leaving the corner office
with the best view empty.
You aren't concerned that
might come across as ungrateful?
- I have something I need
to attend to at home, so...
How's the work been?
- Busy. Just trying to catch up
with all the departments
and making sure we're on point
with our clients, which wasn't
being done before, so...
- You know, I was basically
doing this job
before you got here.
I've worked at this company
for over 10 years.
I lobbied hard
for this position.
But I guess they wanted to hire
someone from the outside.
Check all the boxes.
- Well, I should let
you get back to it.
- It was nice to meet you.
Visitor detected,
front door.
- Soteria, unlock
the front door.
Devan, hi. Please, come in.
- Thank you.
- Just a little
housewarming gift.
I didn't have time to wrap it.
Well, I-I just knew
from your questionnaire
that you enjoy cooking
as much as I do,
and this is the best pan
you'll ever use.
As a matter of fact,
I need a new pan, so thank you.
- You're most welcome, Leah.
I also wanted to apologize again
for Wesley's actions
with your daughter.
- Thank you,
I appreciate your concern.
This past year, and the move,
have been quite unsettling.
- I can imagine.
Now, if you don't mind,
I would like to check
your smart hub
to see what happened
with the stove.
- Whatever you need.
- Hi, just these, please.
- Wait.
- What's up?
- Just can't find my sunglasses.
Do you feel safer here
than you did at your last home?
- Yeah, much safer, yes.
That's one of the main reasons
why we moved.
That and my new job.
But your system
does give me a feeling of um,
peace of mind and uh,
the feeling that
I'm a lot more in control.
- Oh, great. Good.
Soteria will always
be here to protect you.
Now, I hope you don't mind,
but I reset
the front sprinklers.
I noticed your lawn wasn't
being sufficiently watered.
- Oh. Thank you for that.
- You're welcome.
I also discovered a glitch
in the network
which may have caused things
like the stove to turn on.
Soteria is a complex system,
but I updated the software,
just in case.
- Okay, good. Thank you.
- Hmm. Is that your daughter?
- Yeah, Harper.
- Wow.
Family is so important.
And protecting those we cherish.
- I couldn't agree more.
Do you have family?
- I... was married, yes. Um...
She died years ago
during a home invasion.
But now I put all my focus
into creating a system
to make sure that that never
ever happens again.
- I'm so sorry
that happened to you.
Thank you.
Devan Karloe,
you have an appointment
with Mr. Weintraub
in 30 minutes.
- Excuse me, I gotta go,
but Leah,
please rest assured
that I have served Wesley
a suitable punishment
for his mistakes.
- Good. Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- Sorry, work.
- Oh no, I understand.
You're busy, I'm busy.
Until we speak again. Stay safe.
- Thank you, Devan.
- Okay...
Principal Adams, hi.
Is everything okay?
Usually the school
just texts me.
Oh, well, what happened?
Yes, yes,
I'll be there right away.
- I told you, Mom,
that girl Dylan
stole my sunglasses.
That group of girls hate me.
What do you want me to do?
- You heard the principal,
a fight warrants an automatic
probation period.
This goes on
your permanent record.
- Okay.
- Do you realize
this could affect
your college admissions?
Hey, no, no, no,
you are coming home with me.
We are going to finish
discussing this properly.
- Please let's talk
about this later,
because if you take
me home right now,
it's only gonna
make things worse.
And obviously,
you have work to do.
- Look, Harper,
I am struggling
to keep everything
together here.
Okay? I need your help.
- This isn't easy
for me either, Mom.
- Hmm. Hi, this is Leah.
Yes, all of the notes
from Tuesday's meeting
are on my desk.
I'll be there as soon as I can.
- I'm gonna be fine. Trust me.
- Keep icing it.
- Okay.
- I'll continue talking
about this at home.
- Okay.
- See you soon.
- Okay, bye.
- That was close.
- Yeah.
You know, your mom's causing me
all kinds of trouble.
- Well, you're an adult,
you can deal with it.
- You all right?
- Mm-hmm, I'm fine.
- Yeah?
- Yep.
When are we gonna go out?
- Well, you're gonna have
to find a new way
to fool my mother, because she
is tracking my cell, so...
- That's easy, just leave
your phone at your friend's.
- What if she calls?
- Then your friend will call
my cell and just
put us on her speaker.
- It's pretty smart.
- Mm-hmm.
- For an old guy.
- Hmm, yeah, thank you.
I like to think so.
- 'K, well, see you later.
- All right.
- Hey Leah, do you
have a moment?
- Sure, come in.
- I need you to look
at this proof,
I just need
your opinion on something.
- Ah, this is from
your new swimsuit line.
- That is correct,
and I don't like it at all.
It just seems so--
- Boring. Like every other
swimsuit design layout
I've seen.
I think you need a more
unique concept,
more diverse models.
I could speak with
the creative team
and come up with some ideas.
I see why they hired ya.
Thank you.
- Of course.
- Actually, speaking of which,
have you had a chance
to swim in your own pool?
- No, not yet.
But I remember you love to swim,
so you are more than welcome
to come over and use it anytime.
- Thank you.
- By the way,
I'm having a little
housewarming on Saturday.
I'd love it
if you could make it.
- I'm there.
- Great.
- We never did go
for that coffee, though.
- We did not.
- Yeah. So, okay, all right,
let's not wait
'til the end of the week.
Let's say we do dinner tomorrow,
say 7:00.
- Okay, yeah, that could work.
- My best friend
is the head chef at Mortelli's.
- I'm in.
- Let's make it happen.
- Morning.
- Morning.
- Can I make you some breakfast?
- No thanks.
- How'd you sleep last night?
- Fine.
- My room was
so cold last night.
Might be another issue
with the network.
No, mine was fine.
Green juice depleted
from refrigerator. Reordering.
- Look at that.
Soteria taking care of us.
- Wow. I could've just
told you that.
- Right.
Um, how's the history
assignment coming along?
- It's good.
I was actually gonna ask you
if I could go over to Nikko's
tonight to work on it?
- Sure. Yeah,
I'm just really glad
you're taking it seriously.
Hi, Devan.
- Oh, hi, Leah. I uh,
just wanted to see
how you're doing. How's...
how's everything at the house?
- Uh, actually I think
there might be
something wrong with
the air conditioning app
in my bedroom.
It kept dropping down
to the coldest setting
last night.
- I'm sorry to hear that.
Let me check the network.
See what I could find out.
- Great, thanks.
Oh, by the way,
I'm having a housewarming party
this Saturday.
I'd love it if
you could make it.
- Oh. Yeah, sure. How nice.
Uh, I'm looking forward to it.
Oh, by the way,
I spoke to Principal Adams
from Harper's school
and she deleted that blemish
from Harper's permanent record.
- Oh. Um...
how did you know about that?
- Well, the principal and I
were talking
and I mentioned
that you were a new client.
I installed the network
at the school
so she owed me a favor.
- Well, thank you.
- You're most welcome.
I'll see you Saturday.
Stay safe.
- Bye.
Yeah, let's go with this one
for the website.
Make sure Raj from social
has this latest draft.
Thank you.
Hey, Stella, thanks so much.
Shane, you know that we launch
at midnight Eastern, right?
We're gonna be here late tonight
so if you could rush
this over to Leslie.
Let me know if she has
any changes. Great.
- I was just thinking about you.
- Yeah, well you're
gonna hate me.
- Never.
- I have to cancel
our dinner plans tonight.
We're behind on a deadline
and I'm not gonna be able
to get away.
- Hey, don't stress.
It's all good. We can always
do it another time.
- Yes, of course.
And I'll see you at my
housewarming on Saturday.
- If not sooner. Take care.
- Okay, you too. Thanks.
- So, I already told my mom
that we're gonna be working
on our assignments.
And if she calls,
you're gonna use your cell
to phone Wesley
and then put us on speaker.
- Why not?
Got nothing better to do.
- Okay, harsh.
I'll pick my phone up later
if you just put it
in your mailbox.
- Yeah, no problem.
- Great.
- You sure this is a good idea,
You don't really know him
and you won't have your phone
on you if you need something.
- Nikko, Wesley's harmless.
And he's also hot. Here you go.
I love you so much.
- Love you.
- Hey.
- How's it goin'?
- Good, how are you?
- Hope I'm not interrupting.
- Not at all.
- Chef's special?
- You didn't.
- Did you eat?
- No, and I'm starving.
- Well, shall we?
- Yeah.
This is amazing!
I am so glad I didn't eat
anything in the break room.
- Oh well, I wanted
to surprise you.
- Surprised.
- And I know you've been busy
with work and getting
settled in, so...
- I have been a little
overwhelmed lately.
- I know what you mean.
I've been working this
52-hour work week
with this new campaign.
And I'm not sure if I told you
but um...
my brother and I took over
the family business
when my father died.
- I'm sure he'd be very proud.
- Thanks.
Yeah, I miss him a lot.
Now more than ever.
How have you been doing
since your divorce?
- Better. It's been a long road,
but I'm finding my way.
- After the attack, I just felt
so unsafe and unsettled.
- Hmm, yeah.
- But it made me realize
just how fragile life really is.
So, when this job offer
came along,
it just felt like the right
time for a fresh start.
- Well, sure does sound like it.
- How's Harper?
- I know she resents me
for making her move
in her senior year.
- Hey, you're a great mom, Leah.
'Cause I know you'll always
do the best you can,
so don't be so hard on yourself.
It's always gonna work out.
- Thank you.
That means a lot.
Speaking of which,
excuse me for a moment.
Just gonna check on her.
- Sure.
- Okay, good,
she's with her friend,
like she said she would be.
- It's funny.
This reminds me when
we used to cram for finals
and eat takeout in my dorm room.
Remember that?
- The food was never this good.
- Oh, it beats PB and J,
hands down.
For sure.
How about um,
after this, we go back
to my place
for coffee and dessert?
I made some really decadent
brownies this morning.
- I'd like that.
- Yeah?
- Excuse me while I get
the coffee brewing.
- From your phone?
- Oh yeah.
It's happening.
Oh, wow.
- Pretty great, right?
- Oh, yeah.
I have got to see this system.
- Well, you'll see.
- Well, mangia!
- Mangia, mangia.
- Mangia, mangia, mangia.
Be honest, which store
did you get them from?
- No, I baked those!
- Are you sure?
- Yes!
- 'Cause they are amazing.
And I'm amazing.
- You know, I am excited that
you got the house you wanted.
- Oh, I'm so relieved.
There's been a few issues
with the smart network,
but overall, it's been great.
- That's good.
You know, we're actually
working on smart fitness devices
that could interface with homes.
- Do you think maybe you could
talk to Devan for me
or maybe we can meet up or...
I know that you're look.
You're not... no.
- I mean...
- You're not listening to me.
- Are we gonna talk about
work all night or...?
- Or we can talk about
other things, if you want.
- We don't have to...
talk about anything,
if you don't want to.
- No, I... I can easily shut up.
- Mm-hmm.
Stop talking.
- I'll just shut up.
- Anytime.
- Uh, Mom?
- Sorry. Harper!
Uh, you're back
earlier than I expected.
- We finished early.
- Yeah. Um, Harper,
this is my old friend, Oscar.
Um, Oscar gifted
you the supplements.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome, Harper.
- I'm sorry.
- Busted like teenagers.
I know.
- Look, I should be
going anyway.
I have a meeting
in the morning.
- Do you?
- I do but I-I don't wanna go.
- Okay.
- Yeah.
Well, thanks for the dessert.
It was amazing.
- This was amazing. Thank you.
- Yeah.
- I'll see you tomorrow
at the housewarming.
- Yes, please.
- Okay.
I'll let you...
- Yeah.
- Yeah. I'll let myself out.
- Okay, thank you.
- All right.
- See you tomorrow.
- I'll see you tomorrow.
- Good night.
- Good night.
- Soteria, stop the music.
- Hmm, I think it's kinda funny
how you can tell me
who I can date
but I don't know
who that guy is.
- Oscar's an old friend
from college.
He's also the creator
of your favorite green juice
and supplements.
I thought that you'd be
happy for me.
- Just because I like
his products,
doesn't mean I wanna see him
kissing my mom.
- I'm gonna go hang out
with Nikko tomorrow.
- Uh, don't forget about
the housewarming tomorrow.
- I know.
- Good night.
I love you.
Soteria, set the alarm.
Alarm set.
Home secure.
- Good night, Charlie.
- Hey, sorry to keep
you waiting.
- It's okay,
I know you're busy.
Um, what was it you needed
to show me in person?
- I am incensed
by Wesley's continued
disregard for my rules.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- How's it goin'?
- Good.
- What do you wanna eat?
- Hmm, could get sushi.
- How did you get this?
- I...
installed the security
at the school, remember?
I knew she was
lying to me.
And strange things have been
happening with the devices
at home and somehow,
I think Wesley's responsible.
- Rest assured,
you will never see him again.
Focus on your housewarming.
Don't worry about this.
Consider Wesley gone.
- Thank you. I appreciate it.
Hey, Devan,
you caught me driving home.
- I told you to stop
seeing Harper.
- Um, I haven't seen her. What?
- Stop embarrassing yourself.
You don't think I know
everything that goes
on in my world?
- Okay, Devan, I--
- You know what?
- But--
- I don't even care about her.
I checked the administrative
code logs.
You have been a busy boy
playing games with Soteria.
Okay, Devan.
- I warned you, Wesley.
- Just relax, okay?
I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
- You are gravely mistaken
if you think you could
take me for granted.
I treated you like a son.
I shared my knowledge with you
and this is how you repay me?
- Devan, Devan,
okay, the music's so loud,
I can't hear you. Devan.
The brakes aren't working.
Devan, Devan, please! Please!
Help me! Devan,
I can't stop the car.
I can't stop the car!
Devan, please! Help! Help!
- Wesley has not been returning
any of my texts or calls.
- Maybe it's a good thing.
He's kinda sketchy,
if you ask me.
- I didn't ask. Just worried
something bad happened.
- Well, well, well.
Raj invited me.
I hope you don't mind.
- Did he? Welcome.
- This is a nice place.
- Thank you.
- Much uh, bigger
than my...
...little condo.
- Well, um, help yourself
to some food
and maybe skip the bar.
- Oh. You know, yes,
I could use another drink.
Thank you.
- Please don't.
You made it.
Thanks for coming.
- From my private collection.
- Oh, wow.
- Maybe we can open it later
and toast to my girls.
You, Harper, and Soteria.
- Uh, thank you. Um...
I'm going to put it on ice.
Excuse me.
This is actually--
- The concept actually
came to me in a dream.
Full functionality and security
in a home network that
anticipates your every need.
I consider Soteria to be
my greatest creation.
- Oh yeah.
I mean, she is a beaut. Mmm!
Excuse me, ma'am,
may I have this dance?
My bad. My bad.
Hey, uh, Sot-Soteria, Soteria?
Can uh, can you change up
the music? Boop!
She recognizes only my voice
and those of the homeowners.
Play new music, your choice.
Playing music.
My choice.
She favors opera, as do I.
- Wow.
This guy's some kinda wizard.
- Should we go?
- Mm-hmm.
- Yeah.
- Hi.
- Hey.
- You made it!
- Yeah. You look great.
- Thank you. So do you.
- Thank you.
- Oh, what's this?
- A little something.
- Oh. Um, do you mind?
- Oh, sure. Wow.
- I know, right? Meet Soteria.
- Yeah, it's a part of our
smart fitness line.
Now that watch can track
all of your stats
and the data gets sent
to your cell or desktop.
- Oh wow.
I guess that means I have
to work out again. No pressure.
Not from me.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Wow, this system has everything.
- It does.
Lovely party, Leah.
- Thank you. Um, Devan uh,
this is my old friend, Oscar.
- Good evening, Oscar.
- Devan.
- You come bearing gifts?
- Yeah.
- Yes, this is his company's
new smart fitness watch.
- Yeah, we plan to make it
available for shared
connectivity. Cell phones,
bikes, treadmills, who knows...
even smart homes.
Devan, you've built
an impressive network here.
I would really like to learn
more about it.
Maybe we can meet over lunch,
say next week?
- I don't share my work
with anyone.
And only I can authorize
connectivity to my network.
- Okay. It's uh,
it's good to know.
- Um, why don't we get
you a drink, Oscar?
- Sure.
- Excuse us.
- Devan.
- Oscar.
- Can you hold this for me?
Yeah, just gonna give
Oscar a tour.
- Thank you.
- Ladies, are we having fun yet?
- Fun. Are we having fun, Nikko?
- A big fun.
- Why don't you get something
to eat, mingle.
- Okay. I'll mingle.
Let's go mingle.
- Okay, great.
- Mingling.
- Thank you. Mingling.
- Oh, so that's the steam room?
- Yes.
- Well, how do you like it?
- I haven't even had
a chance to try it yet.
Well, maybe you and I
can both break it in
later, together?
- Maybe.
Why not?
- Um...
I'm really sorry about Devan.
He's become more obsessive
about the house
than when we first moved in.
- I didn't wanna push back
on him too hard
because it was your party.
- Thank you.
And he's done some things lately
that have made me uncomfortable.
And don't even get me
started on his assistant.
- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
- So, what do you plan to do?
- I think it's time
for some distance.
- I'm here for you.
- Appreciate that.
- Always.
- Thank you. Cheers.
Thank you for coming.
- I'll cheers to that.
- Yeah. Enjoy yourselves.
- Leah.
- Patrick.
- Uh, yeah, I just want
to apologize
for my behavior earlier.
I was outta line.
- I appreciate that.
Thank you for staying.
- No problem.
- Thank you for a lovely
evening, Leah.
We never opened that champagne.
- Did you say something
to Patrick?
- We had a brief exchange.
- I simply reminded him
of the need to respect
both you and Soteria.
- You didn't need to do that.
- You're welcome.
Just put it over there.
Yeah, just put it there,
please. Thanks.
Call me curious.
Did you allow Oscar
access to my smart app?
- No. Why would I do that?
- Well, if he ever
takes a closer look,
I would appreciate a call.
- Good night, Devan.
- Good night. Stay safe.
- Hey, you okay?
- Uh, I don't know.
At first I thought Devan
meant well but after tonight,
I'm convinced something else
is going on.
- I have a bad feeling
about him.
He needs some boundaries.
I know.
- Anyway, let me help finish u.
- Thank you.
- Cleaning.
It was a great party.
- A lot of messy people.
Great, thank you.
- Hey.
- Hi.
Oh, I didn't know
you were here.
- I came to check on some
final changes with Raj.
- Right. I'm sorry, I...
I've been so scattered
with everything going on lately.
I even forgot my handwritten
notes at home.
- Oh, well, if you're going
back to get them,
I have some downtime,
if you want some company.
- Sure.
- I can even make us lunch.
- How are you this good to me?
Yes, please.
- Hey, did you hear about that
big accident on Saturday?
- No, what happened?
- Well, it made the local news.
Yeah, apparently it
was one of Devan's employees.
His car just went
into oncoming traffic.
It was horrible.
- What was the employee's name?
- Oh, I don't know.
I think it was Watson or...
- Was it Wesley?
- Yeah, that's it.
- Oh, is he okay?
- Well, no, he-he
didn't make it.
Are you all right?
Leah, what's the matter?
- Um...
I-I'm just gonna finish up
and we'll head out.
- Okay, I'll just circle back.
- Okay.
That was delicious.
- Thank you.
I've gotten better since uh,
our college days.
- Yeah, you still make
a mean grilled cheese.
- So, I guess you want
lemon in your water?
Yes, please.
Visitor detected,
front door.
- Hey, you want lemon or lime?
- Lemon, please!
- You got it.
- Soteria, unlock
the front door.
Good afternoon, Leah.
- How did you know I'd be home?
- I was in the neighborhood.
Do you need something?
- Yes, at your party,
I noticed your download speed
was a bit off.
- I'm not aware of any problems.
- And nor would you,
but even a slight decrease
might affect the security
network's notifications.
- Yeah, I-I'm in the middle
of something, so...
- Yeah, all I need
is five minutes with my uh,
smart hub, and then
I'll be on my way.
But next time, I'd appreciate
you calling ahead of time.
And about Wesley,
have the police found out
any more about how it happened?
- Distracted driving.
He was driving my company car,
too, it's like pfft.
- Well, I might not
have liked him,
but he didn't deserve to die
in such a horrible way.
- What do you think
happened to him?
- I think he had an accident.
- Yeah, correct.
- Excuse me,
I need to go upstairs.
Go ahead and fix the issue.
- Hey, who was it?
What are you doing here?
- I need to update my network.
- So, update your network.
- So, did you take care
of the problem?
- Sure did.
- Can't all these changes
be fixed remotely?
- No, they need to be accessed
in person.
Do you know if Oscar
tried to link any of his
smart devices to my network.
- Honestly, if I'd have known
that the system
was gonna be this much trouble,
I would have never
had it installed.
- Why are you acting like this?
My only concern
is for you safety.
- You know what? Part of me
just wants to shut
this whole thing down
and be done with it.
- No, no.
You don't threaten
to shut Soteria down.
She's a complex system that
requires my constant attention.
You knew there might be issues
when you agreed
to the beta test.
- Devan, I appreciate
everything you've done
for me so far.
Really. But I cannot have
this constant
stress in my life, okay?
It's... it's too much.
I don't want you
to come here anymore.
- Oscar told you say that,
didn't he?
So he has been
looking into my network.
- Hey, I want you to leave
here now, okay?
Soteria, unlock the front door.
- I trusted you.
But I cannot accept
your reckless
and disrespectful behavior.
- If you don't leave now,
I'm calling the police.
Oh, you mean
my good friend, Chief Galeria?
Hey, I know, you could call
Mayor Fields,
but she might not answer.
You lied to me.
This is connected
to my network, isn't it?
- You let go.
- Isn't it?!
- Let go of me right now.
Soteria, call 911.
- Soteria cancel the call.
Call cancelled.
- Get out of my house.
Get out of my house!
- Leah!
- Go.
- Is everything okay?
- I was just leaving.
Stay safe.
- What happened? You all right?
- No.
I just told him to leave. He...
He grabbed my wrist
and tried to take my watch.
He's convinced you're trying
to steal designs
from his network.
- What?
Leah, you may consider
filing a restraining order.
Our company lawyer can help.
He knows people down
at the court
who can push it through.
- I'm scared, Oscar.
He had such a rage in his eyes,
I thought he was gonna
break my wrist.
And I think he had something
to do with Wesley's accident.
- Trust me. Devan is finished.
- He is well connected
with the police chief
and the mayor.
- That doesn't matter.
You can press charges
for assault, attempted robbery.
I'll have my lawyer contact you
and we'll file a restraining
order in the morning. Okay?
- Do you think he's watching us?
- I'm not sure,
but he always seems to know
when you're home.
Maybe there's hidden
cameras somewhere?
I don't know maybe...
maybe he's tracking your cell?
- I'm changing all my passwords.
- That's a good idea.
- Soteria, text Leah from Raj.
"We need you
in the office immediately."
Texting Leah
from Raj's number.
I'm sorry, I have
to get back to the office.
- Yeah, sure.
- I'm probably gonna
be there late.
- Yeah, I understand.
- Do you think...
maybe you could stay,
use the pool, go for a swim?
- Sounds like a good idea.
- Yeah?
- In the meantime, I can go get
this watch looked at.
Maybe I can go get us
some groceries
and have dinner ready for you
by the time you get home?
- Oh. I'd like that.
Thank you.
- Always.
- Okay.
I'll see you tonight!
- Can't wait.
Hey, sweetie.
- Hey. What are you doing home?
- I had to grab some important
papers for work.
And Oscar's here.
- Okay.
- Harper, I...
I need to tell you something.
- What did I do now?
- It's... it's about Wesley.
- I haven't seen him, Mom.
- He was in a car accident.
- Well, is he okay?
- He um...
He was killed in the crash.
- He's dead?
- I'm so sorry, honey.
I know how much you liked him.
I don't understand.
- I'm so sorry, honey.
- I love you.
- I love you, too.
- Okay.
- You're missing it!
It's a pool party!
- Oh, wow.
- Ah, you caught me.
- Uh, isn't that the point?
I'm-I'm sorry.
I'm still at the office
and Raj didn't even have
anything that urgent.
But I got swamped anyway.
- Ah, it's okay.
I'll go for another swim
and have dinner ready
in an hour? Sound good?
- Sounds perfect.
- All right, I'll see you soon.
- Looking forward to it!
- Me too.
- Woo!
Bypass safety measures
in steam room.
Lights on.
Play music. Your choice.
- All right.
Let's hit the steam room.
- Okay.
- Hey.
- Hi, sweetie.
I should be heading home
in a few minutes.
- Okay. I'll come home, too.
- Okay.
I hope you're hungry.
Oscar made us dinner.
- Okay.
- I can ask him to give us
some space, if you'd like.
- No, I'll be fine.
- Did hanging out
with Nikko help?
- Not really.
Maybe a little bit.
- Well, if you want,
after dinner
and Oscar's gone,
why don't you and I have
a little mother-daughter time?
- I'd like that.
- Great.
I'll see you soon. Bye!
Okay, bye.
- Hey, you've reached Oscar.
Please leave a message. Thanks.
- Hey, Oscar,
I'm finally leaving
the office now. Harper should
be there any minute.
I'll see you soon! Bye!
- Soteria, turn down the heat.
Soteria, turn off the heat.
Soteria, unlock the door.
Soteria, unlock the door, now!
Unlock the door, Soteria! Ahh!
Leah! Leah, help me, please!
Safety protocols
Carbon monoxide
levels rising.
Soteria, set the alarm.
Alarm set.
Home secure.
- Oscar?
Yep, coming.
- Hey.
Uh, where's Oscar?
- I don't know.
- That's strange.
I saw him swimming
on the camera,
his car's parked out front.
Unless he went to get more
groceries and went for a walk?
But why wouldn't he drive?
- Maybe he's in the steam room?
- That's probably it.
Soteria, turn on
the back yard lights.
Soteria, call Oscar's cell.
- Calling Oscar's cell.
- Hey, you've reached Oscar.
Please leave a message. Thanks.
- Soteria, end the call.
- Mom?
- Uh his... his cell
phone's outside.
- Oscar.
- Leah, help me, please!
Leah! Leah!
Leah, help me, please!
- Oscar?
- Soteria, unlock the back door.
Soteria, unlock
the back door now.
Why won't it open?
- I'm gonna call 911.
There's no service, Mom.
- Open the door!
Oscar! Oscar?
- Leah!
- Why won't it open?
Open! Please, please.
- Mom?
- Oscar?
- The video's not live.
- What?
- It's edited, it's not live.
- He needs to get out!
- It's not live, Mom.
He's gone.
I'm sorry, it's not live.
- What?
- He's dead, Mom.
- But he was...
- I know, I'm sorry.
- I just saw him!
- I know.
- He was right there!
- I know. It's okay, Mom.
- He's watching us.
- Who?
- Can you disable
the living room camera?
- I can't control anything.
- Wait here. Okay?
- Mom?
Where are you going?
- Wah!
of cameras is not permitted.
- Mom?
- If you don't let us out
of here, I'm gonna hurt Soteria.
Let us out!
All of the glass
is shatterproof
so we can't break our way out,
but maybe if I can reset
the system,
I can unlock the door.
Harper, go hide your phone.
- Why?
- He's probably tracking us
with them. Go!
- Okay.
Unlock the front door.
- Okay, I hid it.
- Devan has total control
of the house.
- What are we gonna do?
- I don't know,
but we're gonna
figure something out.
Okay, we're gonna find a way
out of here, I promise.
- Okay.
- Okay? Are you okay?
- Yeah, I'm just,
I'm feeling really dizzy.
- We're gonna be fine, okay?
- Okay. It's really
hard to breathe.
- Okay, we can do this,
all right?
- Okay.
- Alarm deactivated.
Back door unlocked.
Welcome, Devan Karloe.
Soteria, lock the back door.
- Back door locked. Home secur.
- Soteria,
locate homeowners'
cell phones.
- Owner's cell phones located.
One is in the kitchen.
One is in the second
upstairs bedroom.
- Come on. Here.
- Soteria, play music.
Your choice.
- Playing music. My choice.
- What did she do to you?
I warned her, stay away.
Who do you love?
- I love Devan Karloe.
- Come on. Come on.
- Okay. Okay.
- Why is he doing
this to us, Mom?
- I don't know.
I think he wants to control us.
- Hey, hey, hey.
- I don't feel so good.
- Okay.
- My head is spinning.
- Okay.
Lay down.
Listen to me. Listen to me.
I'm gonna get us
out of here, okay?
- How? It's locked.
We're locked in, Mom.
- Maybe I can signal
the neighbors.
I'm gonna get
a flashlight, okay?
- Okay, okay.
You should now both be feeling
the deadly effects of carbon
monoxide poisoning.
As you share your final
moments together...
...consider your fates
might have been different.
But you chose your fate.
- What do we do?
- I offered you protection
from your darkest fears.
But you betrayed me.
You betrayed Soteria!
- Listen, you can just
fight it, okay?
- Okay.
- Try to fight it.
We can do this, okay?
- Devan's tablet
is the master key.
If we can get that,
we can get out. Stay with me.
Stay with me. Okay? Okay?
- I'm going to get
the flashlight. Okay?
- Okay. Ugh!
- When you let Oscar
poison your minds,
it put Soteria at risk.
You're not gonna get away with
harming my greatest creation.
Mom. The vent.
- Harper? No.
- Mom, Mom.
- Honey?
Come on,
let's get outta here.
Come on.
So... Soteria.
Unlock the front door. Let's go.
Okay, this way. Come on.
Almost there.
I got you. I got you.
I got you.
Deep breath.
It's okay. It's okay.
Hey, it's over now. Okay?
- Okay.
- Okay. Okay.
what's your emergency?
- I'd like to...
I'd like to report
a home invasion.
We're okay. We're okay.
Harper, you are the most
important person in my life.
I did what I thought
was best for us at the time.
But parents don't always
get it right.
I'm so sorry.
- No, Mom, I'm sorry.
I didn't understand
what you were going through
after Dad left
and after the break-in.
- I'm supposed to be
the adult here.
Thanks, honey,
it means a lot. I love you.
- I love you, too.
- Oh, excuse me,
hold on a second.
What if we just kept Charlie?
- Seriously?
- Yeah, why not?
- No, Mom.
I don't trust that thing.
Definitely not. No.
- Okay, sorry, go ahead.
Bye, Charlie.
- Bye, Charlie.
- You're right, we can turn
on the lights ourselves.
We don't need any of it.
What if we got a dog?
- Who's gonna look after it
when you go off to college?
- Why do you always
have to be the adult?
We'll take turns.
