Besides the aforementioned toothbrushes, what else in homes is internet enabled/compatible?
Refrigerators
Toilets (yes, some of those hi-tech Japanese ones)
Stoves
Toys
Of course, lights and cameras.
Alexa, Echo, et al.
What are some others?
Exercise equipment
Doorbells
Washers/dryers
Coffee makers
TVs
Radios
Thermostats
Door locks
Dishwashers
Garage doors

Modern equivalent of coming home from work and being locked out of the garage and house because Alexa is tired of your shit.

My oven is. I often turn  it on before I get home to pre-heat it.
Also:
Robotic vacuums
Ceiling fans
TV
Computers
EV Charging Station
Microwave

Practically everything can be. But none of it has to be.

You can make any outlet enabled with an inline device. Most climate control systems have an adapter.

Didn't the Final Destination movies involve "fate" devising clever but random ways of killing victims through mundane circumstances? 

If someone hasn't done so already, they should make a movie about AI using web-enabled household devices to kill people in inventive ways.

Things like having a Roomba lurking nearby and a murderous AI killing the lights just as a housewife is approaching the top of basement stairs with a laden laundry basket. Preferably with a web-enabled bandsaw on a workbench at the bottom of those stairs. 

Towards the end of the movie, law enforcement would get wise that something deadly is happening at 223 Springfield Street, and send in an entire team of heavily armed SWAT officers, who are nevertheless systematically killed off in increasingly clever ways.

It could be entitled "The Internet of [Needful] Things". Or "Smart Home, Deadly Home".   :eek1:
A post-apocalyptic tale of love, loss and redemption. And zombies!

I don't remember the specifics, but there was an X-files episode where Mulder and Scully eat dinner at an automated restaurant, and then are pursued by a number of different technological items which are being controlled by the restaurant's AI (because they had failed to tip).  It was season 11, episode 7 "Rm9sbG93ZXJz" (not a typo).  :D

Some of the lessor known predecessors of the 20th century include:

Electric House (1922)

Demon Seed (1977)

Electric Dreams (1984)

Chopping Mall (1986)

Pulse (1988) (The shower scene where the sentient electricity somehow traps her in the shower stall and keeps the water from turning off is wild)

Dream House (1998) (UPN TV movie, not the Daniel Craig movie of the same name)

Smart House (1999)

I've seen "Chopping Mall".

Killer security robots vs. 80's teens (who all are actually in their 20s or 30s).

The premise is goofy as hell, but the exploding head scene is what most people remember from that movie.

So....  EMP warheads become defensive weapons against the Internet of AI Enabled Killing Appliances?  :eek1:

I feel like this AI has passed the Turing Test just by being obnoxiously and stubbornly wrong.  It's like arguing with a real live idiot.

So the AI is "errogant" - which is when you're completely wrong, but totally certain about it.

Sean Carroll's Mindscape podcast:
Episode 46: Kate Darling on Our Connections with Robots
May 13, 2019

a blurb:
"Most of us have no trouble telling the difference between a robot and a living, feeling organism. Nevertheless, our brains often treat robots as if they were alive. We give them names, imagine that they have emotions and inner mental states, get mad at them when they do the wrong thing or feel bad for them when they seem to be in distress. Kate Darling is a researcher at the MIT Media Lab who specializes in social robotics, the interactions between humans and machines.

We talk about why we cannot help but anthropomorphize even very non-human-appearing robots, and what that means for legal and social issues now and in the future, including robot companions and helpers in various forms"
