Home security cameras uk

Hi everyone ​ I am a huge noob with all this stuff, but my sister just got a ring doorbell and it has made me curious as to how to make my house more secure. I use a wheelchair, so any ability to see outside via my pc or phone would make life easier (and me feel safer). I live in a bungalow so it is not the biggest set up required. I think what is likely needed is two cameras, one for the front of the house, and one for my garden (possibly one inside in the hall of my house?). Ideally I would be able to live view these on my computer and be able to record video/audio …

Hendrick’s (yes, the gin company) launches wacky smart speaker

I bet your smart speaker doesn’t have a martini glass holder.  Hendrick’s, a company known primarily for producing gin, is seeking to remedy that with Horatio — a smart, voice-activated speaker with a design like no other speaker on the market. Horatio is made out of brass, copper, and leather, and looks like something out of a steampunk novel. Each one is unique (created by two American artists, Hendrick’s says). It’s utterly weird and quite cool, though it certainly isn’t for everyone. I’m never buying a smart speaker without a cocktail glass holder again. Image: Hendrick’s The company didn’t really share many details about the speaker’s technical side, except for the fact that it responds in a “delightful British accent.” …

Someone should make a game about: Stanley Kubrick’s archives

Hello, and welcome to our new series which picks out interesting things that we’d love someone to make a game about. This isn’t a chance for us to pretend we’re game designers, more an opportunity to celebrate the range of subjects games can tackle and the sorts of things that seem filled with glorious gamey promise. Boris is a chess computer from the late 1970s. God, it’s a weird thing: this tidy wooden box with chess pieces and a fold-out board and a lump of computer, basically, a brown shiny brick of computer with keys and a little display. That display! Boris wouldn’t just make moves. Boris would be a jerk about it too, typing out burn messages when you …

Sony PS4 Remote Play now open to all Android devices

Sony has finally added support for all Android devices running Android 5.0 and above for its PS4 Remote Play app. The functionality was this far exclusive to Xperia devices before being expanded to support iOS back in March.

This iPad mini keyboard makes for a surprisingly great tiny laptop

Although I’m a connoisseur of iPad keyboards and a fan of the new iPad mini 5, I never really felt much desire for the two to cross over. What I like most about the iPad mini is that its size encourages you to use it in an unambitious way, without aspirations to replace your laptop. Zagg’s new $99.99 Folio keyboard case has changed my mind a little. It’s not the greatest keyboard in the world, which won’t come as a surprise. But if you ever find yourself in situations where you are using an iPad mini as your only computer, it’s actually pretty good. Keyboard cases for other iPad models all have the same obvious problem: the tablet has to …

This Lightning Detector Is Remarkably Sensitive

Lightning strikes are quite high energy events, and release plenty of radio frequency energy when they go off in the atmosphere. This makes them easy to detect, and the magnitude of the energy release means it can be done at impressive range. [Jay] decided to build a device of his very own, and was impressed at its detection performance. The device is a simple but effective design. An antenna is used to capture RF signals, and these are then amplified through a single transistor stage. This is connected to a basic transistor flasher circuit, which is biased to only flash when tipped over the edge by an incoming signal. After building the circuit, [Jay] noticed that the device wasn’t just picking …

Oppo A11 to arrive in China with 48 MP camera

The Oppo A5 (2020) arrived on in India back in September and now a similar device is launching in China, although with a different name. The Oppo A11 appeared in China Telecom listings with a price tag and key specs, and the main differences compared to the A5 are the main camera and the selfie shooter – the body remains the same. Oppo A11 The images reveal a device with a 6.5″ screen and a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera, which has a 16 MP sensor.

You don’t need Dyson’s $649 Pure Cryptomic air purifier to get formaldehyde out of your house

Dyson’s latest air purifier, the Pure Cryptomic, can eliminate formaldehyde that’s floating around in your home. It’s the main selling point that distinguishes this model from the presently-available Pure Cool and Pure Hot + Cool, which can only capture formaldehyde, not destroy it. But before you drop $649 on a formaldehyde-fighting device there are a few things that you should know. First, it is almost guaranteed that there is formaldehyde in your home. Formaldehyde is just about everywhere. It’s a chemical that’s found in your body, in the environment, and in furniture and wood products. People tend to hear about it in conjunction with health problems, and it’s true — when there’s enough of it in the air, formaldehyde can …

There’s A Haunting Memorial In Turkey To Commemorate 440 Women Killed By Their Own Husbands Last Year

There is a certain beauty and strength in weakness as some may say. But sometimes inequity between people brings only sorrow. Such is the case of domestic violence, an acute yet so often unspoken problem all over the world. One artist in Turkey found it so heartbreaking and important, he managed to find a way to bring it to the awareness of his fellow countrymen that just couldn’t be ignored and also beautifully commemorate those who fell victim for this terrible violence so at least the memory of those wasted lives remains.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 pushes all-screen phones to their inevitable limits

The wait is over. Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 is official and, no, it doesn’t have a headphone jack. But before I get to why Samsung killed the classic audio port on the Note 10, I’d like to clarify that the new phone isn’t a single device, but two: a 6.3-inch Note 10 and 6.8-inch Note 10+. Samsung’s always billed the Galaxy Note as its biggest and most cutting edge smartphone — a device for power users built with productivity in mind — and the two Note 10s are no different. The new Android phones don’t break new ground with anything like a foldable display or camera embedded underneath the screen, but when it comes to tried-and-true innovation upgrades, there’s really …

Arduino and industrial distance sensor communicate via RS-485

After obtaining an industrial distance sensor, TUENHIDIY decided to use it as the basis for an interesting visual indicator. The device communicates with an Arduino Uno via an RS-485 module, and outputs distance values in the form of a 9 x 14 pixel display made out of discrete LEDs soldered onto an LoL Shield. As shown in the video be low, it does a good job of sensing how far an object is from it on a table, and the 126 LEDs provide a nice brilliant display.  Code for the build can be found on GitHub if you’d like to make something similar. Seeing as though the sensor used here will set you back close to $1,000, you may want …
