Smart home technologies

Post by Clint » Sat Jul 22, 2017 3:56 am

Does anyone here use Smart Home technologies? I'm looking right now at the Amazon echo, and found that there are lots of different things available to monitor / administer your home even when away with an app. (You don't need an Amazon echo for this, there are systems available).

For example, cameras which are activated by motion sensors, heatings which are optimised by sensors etc.
Google also apparently offers a similar product called google home.

I'm not a technical expert - does anyone here use such things?

We have Echo Dots in three rooms of our home. They are not connected to smart devices as of yet. I really enjoy being able to ask about news, weather, add to my shopping list and to do list. play games (Jeopardy), ask math questions like "Alexa, what is 6.02 times 10 to the power of 23", and such. She can also play music and read Audible books, all with voice command.

I admit it. I'm a nerd.

Several years ago I started using iCam. It worked for me because I refurbished computers and had access to several Macbooks, which could be connected with iCam software. It worked well.

More recently I've tried Titathink TT522PW-Pro, which has very good visuals and audio. EZVIZ products are also good.

If you are looking for a web cam I've used the LogiTech C920 for camming. And my fiance just set up cirrus cameras.

Being a nerd is not a bad thing ;)

I'm looking right now at the Amazon Echo and I'll probably get one this week to check it out. How good is the voice control, by the way?

Do you use the Titathink camera outdoor or indoor?
