Xiaomi Aqara Smart Water Sensor
The Xiaomi Aqara smart water sensor is a compact puck-like device that operates on a single button cell battery (CR2032) which uses Zigbee to communicate with SmartThings and other compatible home automation systems. With a price tag that can possibly be much lower than the other two water sensors we have checked out, we'll see exactly what you can expect with Xiaomi's take on this technology.

Dojo by Bullguard Internet Security Device
Some people figure they aren't at risk since they don't care if someone gains access to their smart fridge or other IoT devices. But often these hackers look for the weak links in your network to leverage them against other more vital network devices. The truth is we all need to take network security seriously; the problem is most people have no idea what they can or should do. This is where devices like the Dojo come in.

Sengled Element Classic LED A19 2700K 9W Smart Bulb
In this review we're going to check out an A-19 style LED light bulb that has a Zigbee radio inside, so that it can be controlled by popular home automation controllers. Typical LED bulbs have gotten very inexpensive lately, with high quality bulbs costing just a couple bucks. That the manufacturer, Sengled, can offer what looks like a decent quality LED bulb with a Zigbee radio inside for $9 with Amazon Prime free shipping, does seem rather impressive.

This 2-bay unit features a 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, and dual Gigabit network connections to power your networked storage.
August Smart Lock with HomeKit :: Posted On October 09, 2017
August Smart Lock with HomeKit
August Home is a company that currently specializes in automating doors. They make deadbolt locks, keypads, doorbell cameras, and a hub for remote access. When my parents recently mentioned they wanted to automate their lock I knew I wanted to keep it simple so I immediately thought of August. What I like about their deadbolt design is it doesn't require you to replace your keyed locks, just the part inside the house.

The Viper 4 Series DDR4 32GB 3000MHz kit from Patriot Memory is not as flashy as other RGB offerings we have tested from other manufacturers, but comes with a good quality aluminum heat spreader for fast heat dissipation, while using the airflow inside the computer case. 32GB of RAM should be enough for most todays' games and productivity applications, while most systems should be able to run this kit at the stock speeds without issues, thanks to the pre-programmed XMP 2.0 profile. madshrimps.be
