Nest And Alexa Team Up to Make Your Home Comfortable

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Nest Thermostat-Amazon Alexa

The Nest Learning Thermostat makes conserving energy easy and keeps costs low. This thermostat has the capability to learn what temperature you prefer and can also shut off when you are away. In independent studies, Nest saved an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. That means it can pay for itself in under two years. The device is easy to use, it has Wi-Fi, so you can adjust the temperature to your liking by simply using your smartphone, tablet, or your Mac.

Now, adjusting the temperature in your home is easier by using your own voice, thanks to Nest and Amazon Alexa. Alexa is a cloud-based service that you can speak to through your Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, or Fire TV.  You can change the temperature on your Nest by stating a voice command such as “Alexa, set my living room thermostat to 68 degrees.” With this voice command feature, you can adjust the room temperature without having to lay a finger on your thermostat.

Apple iPhone SE: Big Announcement, Small Phone

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Apple pulled the wraps off the long-rumored “smaller iPhone” today, with the unveiling of the new iPhone SE. After two generations of slowly-growing iPhones, Apple returned to the form (figuratively and literally) that they hand originally held onto when many other smartphone manufacturers first began to move towards large-screened phones and phablets. The new iPhone SE combines the best of both the iPhone 6/6S and the iPhone 5S, putting powerful guts inside the iconic 4-inch screened iPhone that many have come to love. The premium small-screen smartphone segment is all but dead these days, and the iPhone SE looks to capitalize on a user base that wants a cutting-edge device without hauling around something the size of a diner menu.

How to Set Up Circle With Disney Internet Monitoring

Friday, March 4th, 2016

These days, the average family might have a dozen or more devices connected to the internet, from smartphones to smart TVs. And now more than ever, it’s important for parents to be aware of what their kids are doing online. While many solutions exist for monitoring and limiting access to the web, most are implemented on the device level, meaning you’d need to have an app on every phone, tablet or computer that goes online. A new solution to this problem comes from Circle With Disney, a simple gadget that lets you manage internet content and time limits across all devices on your home network.
