BACtrack C8 Police-Grade Breathalyzer :: Posted On July 13, 2018
BACtrack C8 Police-Grade Breathalyzer
A few weeks back we were at a press event and saw the BACtrack display for their new C8 police-grade breathalyzer device that features something they call ZeroLine. BACtrack is the #1 seller of breathalyzers in North America and was founded in 2001. Their new C8 builds on their past expertise by adding ZeroLine, which gives you an estimate of when you'll be sober. Turns out it might be longer than you think.
ZOOZ Z-Wave Plus Indoor Siren ZSE01 :: Posted On June 14, 2018
ZOOZ Z-Wave Plus Indoor Siren ZSE01
The ZOOZ Z-Wave Plus Indoor Siren ZSE01 is a great choice for those looking to add a siren to the their smart home ecosystem. It is fairly easy to connect, has a variety of mounting options, and functions just as you would expect. The handful of things that really drew me to it are the fact that it is AC powered with battery backup, features the benefits of Z-Wave Plus, and when plugged in to AC power it will function as a Z-Wave repeater.
BlackVue DR900S-2CH Dashcam :: Posted On June 08, 2018
BlackVue DR900S-2CH Dashcam
A while back we were introduced to Pittasoft when we reviewed the BlackVue DR650S-2CH dashcam. Overall we were quite happy with the performance, but there were a few improvements we would have liked to see. When I recently heard the DR900S-2CH was coming out, I jumped on the chance to look at the new and improved device. The biggest improvement on paper is now the primary camera is capable of 4K resolution and the rear is 1080P.
Batteroo Boost Battery Life Extender :: Posted On May 23, 2018
Batteroo Boost Battery Life Extender
Last year I went to a trade show and spoke with the inventor of Batteroo. The presentation almost sounded too good to be true, citing a recent study that showed most discarded batteries had up to 80% of the original energy still stored inside. Of course their device can solve this problem by maximizing all of your alkaline batteries. Currently the product is for sale through Indiegogo and directly from their website, where a 4-pack of AA Batteroos is $10 plus shipping.
ecobee Switch+ Smart Switch with Amazon Alexa :: Posted On April 27, 2018
ecobee Switch+ Smart Switch with Amazon Alexa
The ecobee Switch+ packs quite a bit inside. There is built-in Alexa with microphone and speaker, a motion sensor, light sensor, temperature sensor, night light, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n @ 2.4GHz, and it is designed to be controlled through the ecobee app. In addition it can be integrated with HomeKit, Alexa, SmartThings, IFTTT, and Google assistant. And since this is obviously designed to replace a standard wall switch (SPST), you can toggle your light locally.
August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge :: Posted On April 15, 2018
August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge
In October of 2017 we reviewed the August Smart Lock with HomeKit. Overall we thought it was a pretty solid smart lock offering. but were left hoping for a little more. One area lacking was its ability to deal with multiple users smoothly, and for remote access. At the time we thought the August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge might be the perfect solution to these issues. We have one on hand now, so let's see how it actually works.

From Around The Web
CORSAIR HS70 Wireless Gaming Headset
Featuring a 2.4GHz wireless connection, up to 16 hours of battery life and everything you liked about the award winning HS60 the brand new HS70 Wireless Gaming Headset With 7.1 Surround Sound by CORSAIR could be the cable-free solution you've all been looking for.
ASRock AB350M Pro4 Motherboard
Do you need the latest and greatest X470 motherboard to seize the performance potential of the newly refreshed AMD Ryzen processor line? ASRock doesn't think so and is out to prove it with this exceptionally inexpensive B350 Micro ATX board.
MSI Vigor GK80 Gaming Keyboard
A few months ago, our own David Bremer wrote a review of the MSI Vigor GK70 Gaming Keyboard, a tenkeyless keyboard that he called a compact but powerful "gaming monster." The MSI Vigor GK80 is the GK70's bigger more fully-featured brother, with a full 104-key standard layout.
HP Portable SSD P800
USB-powered external hard drives remain the mechanism of choice for most laptop users who need to back up their systems or transfer large files. While their price is low, so is their performance, and the increasing availability of Thunderbolt 3 ports on newer laptops presents an opportunity for vendors to target high-end users who are willing to pay for the best possible data transfer rates. The Hewlett-Packard Portable SSD P800 leverages its Thunderbolt interface to provide performance that's exceptional for any storage device, not just an external one, and today Benchmark Reviews will put this high-end new drive through its paces.
Team Group Delta RGB SSD 250GB
Team Group's Delta RGB SSD is a unique solid-state drive, due to its amazing RGB support. It connects to your motherboard's RGB header, which then gives you full control over the LEDs, for mixed colors, patterns and custom lighting effects. Performance is good too, so is pricing, with just $80 for the 250 GB version.
HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset
Choosing the right headsets is a decision that you can get very wrong, very easily. Some headsets perform amazingly but are marred by excessive weight or uncomfortable ear cushions that don't become apparent until you've used the headset for an extended span of time. What feels good for a few minutes can literally give you a pounding headache.
D-Link DCS-8010LH Wi-Fi Surveillance Camera
The D-Link DCS-8010LH comes in a pretty colorful box with a bright blue and white color scheme. As you can see in the photo above, the wireless camera sits as the main subject on the front panel with a red outlined house underneath to show its purpose. A company logo can be found in white on the top left corner while a description of "HD Wi-Fi Camera" can be found on the right side. Underneath, there are labels to show this unit is compatible with other smart assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
CORSAIR STRAFE RGB MK.2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
In order to try out the STRAFE RGB MK.2, we did first write a full article and besides the good responsiveness of the keys we did also enjoy the silence. To be frank with you, our daily keyboard for work is the K70 LUX RGB that does feature the same type of switches so moving on to the new STRAFE version was pretty straight-forward. Afterwards, we did run some Quake Champions matches, but also AION that does require lots of key combinations: thanks to the powerful iCUE configuration options, it was a breeze to access the spells, while the Volume wheel is quite handy when you do not have an easy to reach Volume modifier on your headset or speakers.
Azio Armato CE Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
If you like typewriter inspired keycaps but you'd want them paired with a more gaming oriented mechanical keyboard and you don't care much about RGB lighting then the Armato CE by Azio is just what you need.
Synology DS718+ 2-Bay NAS Server
The Synology DS718+ is a high-end 2-bay NAS with good performance, silent operation, and low power consumption. Its strong advantage is that its storage capacity can easily be expanded with five additional drives (seven in total) since it is compatible with the optional DX513 expansion unit.
