I recently began a two-part review of the Vivint home automation/security solutions. Read the review here before you move on to part 2. The system has definitely become an important part of our home. Part 2 will cover the Playback DVR, door locks, thermostat, smoke detector and other detectors installed.
If you’re shopping for a home security camera, there’s plenty of options that you can consider, but none quite like the SmartCam A1. Imagine having a home camera that you can control and rotate for a fully immersive view of the surroundings that you place them in. The company sent over a unit for us to test out, so let’s…
Nature has a funny way of sneaking up on people. A flower that seemed it wouldn’t flourish for weeks suddenly blooms in all its glory only a couple of days later. Nature enthusiasts know this phenomenon well, and many of them wish it were possible to record plant and flower growth as it happens, thereby never missing out on natural…
If Frodo were equipped with the Peak Design Everyday Backpack, the journey to Mordor would have been much easier. Maybe the backpack wouldn’t have done anything to guard against Orcs, however, the endlessly configurable bag would have done wonders to carry the weight of Frodo’s responsibility. Starting at $259.95, the Everyday Backpack is worthy of all of life’s adventures.
Virtual reality is quickly gaining steam as a mature, mainstream technology. It’s gone from concept to a geeky project to something the everyday person can not only understand, but also utilize and enjoy. Lenovo wants to really bring that to the next level with their Mirage Solo and Mirage Camera, and by including Google Daydream and a whole lot more!
Netgear is the worldwide leader in home networking and smart home security products, so it’s no surprise they brought the heat at CES 2018 by announcing multiple products at the biggest stage in Vegas.
As a father of two young children, I know all too well the fear that all new parents have: “Is my baby breathing?” Cocoon Cam looks to ease all parents’ minds with their new innovative baby monitor, the Cocoon Cam Clarity. The Clarity will be available for pre-order in Spring 2018 and will officially launch soon thereafter.
What goes on in your home when you’re gone? Hopefully nothing unexpected. Chances are, nothing will happen, but if someone were to be in your home without your permission, wouldn’t you want to know? With the Guardzilla 360 Live Video Security Camera, you can.
Did your 16-year-old just get their first car? Are you nervously biting your fingers every time they leave home? Raven gives you a way to know exactly what’s going on in your teen’s car — how they are driving, where they are driving, and who’s in the car with them — while disguising itself as a slick heads-up display.
When we replaced our front door over a year ago, I purchased a Ring Doorbell; I love it. I love knowing who is there, being able to “answer” the door while away from the house, and the extra sense of security it gives me. When Ring offered a Ring Floodlight Cam for review I was, and continue to be, thrilled.
If 2018 is the year you have determined will be the time when you get yourself back in shape, two items that you should put on your wish list are the Nokia Steel Activity and Sleep Watch and the Nokia Body Cardio Scale.
If you’re looking for a powerful security camera that is relatively inexpensive, simple to set up and easy to use, the Honeywell Lyric C2 Wi-Fi Security Camera is for you. I reviewed the Lyric thermostat and still use it. (Review) I also reviewed the Lyric C1 Security Camera. (Review) The Lyric C2 is a fantastic addition to our ever-smarter home.
Since the name Guardzilla seems like such an obvious riff on Godzilla, it only stands to reason that this life-size product would watch whatever you’ve aimed it at and incapacitate intruders and interlopers with a flamethrower blast when notified to do so. What? It’s “only” a compact 360º motion detection home security camera? Well, I guess that’s okay, too.
I had a DSLR. It was great, but I sold it. I had a small, mirrorless camera. It was awesome, but I sold it. Honestly, as a blogger and casual photographer, the iPhone’s camera is more than enough for my needs. To get the most out of iPhone-ography, however, you need to carry some accessories. Enter the Waterfield Camera Bag.
Your home is supposed to be your little sliver of privacy and comfort in an increasingly hostile world. It’s a place where you have the luxury of retreating and relaxing. Unfortunately, criminals don’t always respect this privacy and encroach on safety for their own personal benefit. How you defend your home will determine the safety and security of your property.
The path that Motorola has taken with the Android lineup over the past couple of years has been a bit hit or miss. They have produced some great phones like the Google branded Nexus 6 while others like the Moto E lineup have been lackluster at best.
Since renovating our home last year, we have maintained the temperature in the house using the smart Lyric Thermostat from Honeywell. It is a great way to remotely cool or heat our home. Now Honeywell has released the Lyric C1 Wi-Fi Security Camera, and I’m please to say we have one in use in our home. It’s great!
Earlier this week Logitech unveiled a product that I’ve personally had my eye on for a while, and honestly cannot wait to get my hands on — the Circle 2, Logitech’s indoor/outdoor home security camera.
My son dug an old camera out of one of our drawers, and he’s been snapping non-stop photos since then. Most are blurry, but a few are decent, and one or two are surprisingly good!
We recently reviewed a new lens system from Olloclip. That was not the only new product Olloclip rolled out. In this review we will take a look at two more of them — the Olloclip Active Lens Set for iPhone 7 and 7 PLUS and Olloclip Pivot. Both take iPhone-ography to a new level of awesome.
Moshi’s Arcus backpack is perfect for all of your gadgets and gear, and if you’re a photographer, this may be the camera bag you need to start 2017 with.
