Now...to today's post!
When we bought our new house, we soon discovered it needed a new doorbell. The one we had was all:
Okay, maybe not quite that old. But if we were going to buy a new doorbell, why not go for the latest technology? I write about the Internet of Things for some of my clients. I know smartphone-accessible appliances are the future.
We invested in a smart doorbell. When someone presses it, it rings your phone. You can then pull up the video and speak with them (they can hear but can't see you).
It's motion activated, so any time someone is on your front porch, video is captured of that person. Most of my videos are of these guys:
The next logical step is to buy something else that's Internet connected. Perhaps one of these?
You can also buy smart plugs for your home...they let you plug in anything and control it from your smartphone.
