WION – Home Control at Your Fingertips

I am going to be honest with you.  I have had this system for a couple of weeks and was dreading setting it up.  I am not too much of a technology geek and really didn’t feel like spending a couple of hours setting it up and learning all about it. However since we wanted to show you this system, I had to take the dive and try it out.  All I can say is it’s one of those items you look at and giggle to yourself and wonder what the big deal was.  From the time I opened...

Black & Decker Smart Stand XL – Making Christmas Easier

Let me paint you a picture.  We all know that Christmas is a wonderful and joyful time of year.  I am lucky because I have the best wife in the world.  She pretty much does everything.  She shops for all the presents, decorates the house, the tree, bakes and even goes out and buys the tree.  My only responsibility is to cut the bottom of the tree and put it in the stand.  Simple enough, right?  Well as simple as it sounds, for some reason it turns into a pain.  I cut the tree and bring it into the...

Ring Doorbell Review

I live in a small town of about 10,000 people.  The houses are close together which makes it perfect for any solicitor to hit house after house.  No joke, I probably get 3 people a week trying to sell me stuff.  The easy answer would be to never answer the door.  However I also get packages delivered and the occasional friend or my mother will stop by unexpectedly and I don’t want to miss those people, so I have to answer the door.  I also live close to a busy street, so I don’t want my packages to stay...
