I've reviewed a LOT of wireless cameras, IP cameras, home security cameras, whatever you want to call them and have a specific set of features and criteria that I use to judge these types of cameras. #1 is image quality, #2 is viewing angle, #3 mobile viewing application usage and features, and #4 camera needs [...]

As soon as it gets even close to nice weather here in Southern Indiana, the gnats, mosquitoes,  and other annoying bugs are out in full force. It's bad enough dealing with them when you are outdoors, but no one wants bugs indoors too. How do you get rid of them without bug sprays? One solution may [...]

If you take more than one pill per day, whether they are vitamins or drugs for a medical condition, organizing them so you won't miss a daily dose can be a chore. We've all seen the cheap rectangular pill boxes that are separated into seven sections, one for each day of the week and have [...]

In the last couple years, I've been switching my home's standard and CFL light bulbs to LED bulbs to save energy and money. But as I've been doing that, I've seen lots of LED bulbs come on the market that can be controlled anywhere with a mobile app. I wish all my bulbs or even [...]

Cloud based cameras are a very easy way to add a level of security to your home. While they won't prevent bad things from happening, they can alert you as soon as bad things start happening so you can do something about it as quickly as possible. I've been using a mixture of various brands [...]

The box is titled “START HERE ROMANTIC LIFE”. Romance in a box? It it really that simple? Inside the box is a nifty little Bluetooth speaker with a very nice dimmable, changeable, LED light.   The Amazon item title is more specific and quite a bit longer; “Nightlights for Kids, Dimmable Table Lamps, Touch Control LED [...]

TheDuke - 8

Standing desks have been around for years, but they are making a comeback, due to some recent studies. The studies revolved around the dangers of sitting for prolonged periods. I've recently seen news reports of schools that are replacing traditional desks with standing desks, and the energizing effect they've had on students. So, with my [...]

Writing relevant posts for The Gadgeteer could be a full time (and overtime) endeavor. Since this isn't realistic for me, I focus on writing about things that can make a difference in people's lives. I stumbled on this item during a recent lunchtime excursion into the internet, and although it’s not new, I don’t think it’s well-known [...]

I'm not sure about where you live, but here in Southern Indiana, it's that time of year when gnats, flies and mosquitoes start making a nuisance of their pesky selves. If you're not a fan of bug spray and fly strips, the ZappLight might be an alternative worth checking out. It's a 9W 920 lumen bulb that [...]

Schlage Sense_6

Is it possible to get any lazier? I found a way.  And it's good. With the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt I no longer have to find my house key and wiggle it into the lock when my hands are full or I leave the car running.  I don’t even have to remember a combination code. Now [...]

Single-serve coffee systems such as Keurig and Nespresso have become so popular nowadays that it was perhaps only a matter of time until a similar pod-based concept was applied to other foods. Flatev brings that same one-touch convenience to making tortillas. Simply place a pod containing the dough of your choice into the drawer and [...]

We live pretty far off the beaten path and get our water from a well. For some of you this may seem perfectly normal but in the greater Seattle area it's definitely not the standard. Our water is pretty hard and even with a home treatment system, we drink bottled water that we refill as needed. Our [...]

For many, myself included, our phone has become our de facto memo pad to keep reminders, to do lists, and other hastily scribbled notes. One issue is that these become hidden behind a series of swipes and taps, and so, counter-intuitively, you now have to remember to check your reminders. I have long sought for [...]
