Feel secure knowing you can control your garage door from anywhere in the world via WI-FI and your smartphone. This is super easy to install and a great security measure for your connected home. You control it with your phone and it alerts you when your garage opens or closes. It is very reliable but on the off chance it does break then you can just get a garage door opener service to repair it for you. We love this for when we travel because there have been times when the garage was left open which really made us feel vulnerable.
Give the gift of safety and security to your loved ones this Valentine’s Day. The Ring Video Doorbell can help secure your home and even prevent burglaries. The device calls a user’s smartphone when pushed, enabling homeowners to see and speak with visitors from wherever they are. Even if no one dings the bell, Ring’s built-in motion sensors detect movement as someone approaches the door, triggering instant mobile alerts and initiating HD video recording. Users can then view and share the video recordings with law enforcement officials. Or, simply use the Ring Video Doorbell to dismiss pesky salespeople during dinner.
Your devices should work for you whenever you want them to, right? D-Link agrees – and that’s why they made the Smart Plug (DSP-W215). You can set device schedules so that you walk into a brightly-lit home every day after work with your favorite song playing and the AC exactly where you want it. It is super easy to set up too, simple connect to your Wi-Fi network with the push of a button. We had ours set up in less than 5 minutes! You can also turn things on and off from your smartphone or tablet using the mobile app. The app is easy to use and it will even send you customized notifications! With the app, you can keep an eye on your energy use – know what each device’s power consumption is, monitor air conditioning usage in the summer, or heat usage in the winter! That means no surprises at the end of the month! This is the perfect gift for any Geek who wants a fully connected home! A built-in thermal sensor will even automatically turn off overheating appliances.My husband was so excited when ours came in the mail and we just love it!
The latest camera in the Samsung SmartCam product line. Additionally, the Samsung SmartCam HD Plus touts advanced features, such as 130 degree ultra-wide angle lens, 1080p HD streaming, night vision capabilities up to 32 feet and up to 128 GB of video storage for an comprehensive view of any vicinity. Advanced Motion Detection – This model distinguishes between small repetitive movements (ex: falling leaves and changes in light) and true motion. If a user’s pet enters an “off-limits” room or if a window is shattered, the individual will immediately be notified. Motion Zone Select – This feature allows consumers to monitor specific areas within the property and receive notifications about any activity in that locale. For example, if a user would like to track anyone that approaches their doorway or window, he or she could simply draw a box around those regions and the camera would share alerts of any movement in the area. Enhanced Night Vision – Even in complete darkness, the device’s advanced IR Cut Filter for night vision delivers crisp video footage up to 32 feet, enabling users to securely monitor their homes and businesses around the clock.
