Aeotec DSA03202-V1 Z-Wave Minimote
The Aeotec DSA03202-V1 Z-Wave Minimote is definitely a budget friendly choice in the Z-Wave remote controller market, but it is still quite a capable little device. While I am now using each of my two in vehicles to control lighting and garage doors as I approach the house, Inside the house, maybe have one in your bedroom, living room, kitchen, etcetera to provide you with convenient, low cost access to a number of your smart home's features.
Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 :: Posted On July 20, 2017
Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0
Given the extremely small size and the ability to connect via USB 3.0 and microUSB, the Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 is definitely a handy little flash drive to carry around. If your mobile device supports USB OTG (On-The-Go) you will be able to sync or backup your files with ease, and perhaps you could use it to free up some valuable storage space on your phone or tablet.
Fibaro KeyFob Z-Wave Scene Controller :: Posted On June 13, 2017
Fibaro KeyFob Z-Wave Scene Controller
The Fibaro KeyFob has been in use for a few weeks now, and I am very pleased with it. The setup was very easy, and it has become one of my more common means of interacting with portions of my smart home. It works very well for toggling outdoor lights and opening/closing my garage doors, even when just pulling up to the house. The device reconnects to my Z-Wave network quickly, and from a distance that is quite impressive.
NodOn Z-Wave Soft Remote CRC-3US-6 :: Posted On May 26, 2017
NodOn Z-Wave Soft Remote CRC-3US-6
The NodOn Z-Wave Soft Remote can be used as a standalone controller, meaning you don't necessarily have to buy a controller like the Smartthings hub or Wink hub to get up and running to control up to 16 Z-wave devices. If you already have a hub, or if you eventually grow with the Soft Remote to the point that you need a hub, no problem, it can also be connected as a device on your hub while still giving you the ability to control up to 16 devices through scenes/routines.
Synology RT1900ac AC1900 Wireless Gigabit Router :: Posted On May 23, 2017
Synology RT1900ac AC1900 Wireless Gigabit Router
The Synology RT1900ac AC1900 wireless Gigabit router is a great all in one networking device. The standard wireless router features are all there as you would expect, but the addition of the Synology SRM software is what make this an above average wireless router. I have enjoyed using Synology's embedded OS (DSM) on their NAS products for a few years now, and the SRM (Synology Router Manager) is fantastic as well.
leakSMART Complete Home Water Protection Shut-off System :: Posted On May 08, 2017
leakSMART Complete Home Water Protection Shut-off System
The main leakSMART system components are the shut-off valve, remote sensors, and hub. They all use the ZigBee protocol, which uses a mesh network for communication, but does require a hub for control. This review will be handled a little different than our typical reviews. First we will go over the components of the leakSMART system, and then we will go over system performance with their proprietary hub, Iris by Lowes hub, the Wink hub, and then the SmartThings hub.

Functional Prints: Solar Light Peg
In the past year I have been having a blast with 3d printing in my free time. This past week I ran into a situation that printing helped me out and I thought I would take a few minutes to tell everyone about it. I was outside installing a new flag mount to our porch and moving our flag and when I went to move the cheap solar light that keeps the flag lit up at night I had trouble reinstalling it into the ground. The peg started making cracking noises and then broke. I didn't want to have to buy a new light and If I didn't keep our flag lit at night (I'm far too lazy to bring it in each day) it would be against the US flag code. So I brought a small piece of the broken peg inside to look at my options. lanoc.org

Windows 10 Will Cut Off Devices With Older CPUs
No Windows 10 Creators Update for you, Microsoft says—at least, not if you happen to be the unlucky owner of certain older Atom-based Windows devices, and other aging models in the future. After stories arose of failed attempts to upgrade such hardware to the Creators Update, Microsoft confirmed late Wednesday that any hardware device that falls out of the manufacturer's support cycle may be ineligible for future Windows 10 updates. pcworld.com

GSKill Trident Z 4133Mhz RGB CL19 DDR4 Dual Channel Memory
The GSKill Trident Z 4133Mhz memory kit is a little unique in that the module speed is well beyond the norm but, still efficient enough to run the RGB LEDs using the same voltage set aside to power the RAM module. hardwareasylum.com
