If you are still using an sprinkler controller that is not internet enabled, it may be a great time to upgrade it to the latest Orbit B-Hyve WiFi-enabled sprinkler controller. Over the weekend, I upgraded my mom’s sprinkler controller to the Orbit B-Hyve and now her sprinklers can be controlled from anywhere in the world there is internet. Setup took me about 20 minutes, it was really easy as you simply mount the control unit on the wall and re-connect all the wires from your sprinkler.
Looking for the BEST wireless security cameras of 2018? Well, check out my new Reolink cameras that do 5Ghz along with 1440P resolution, also price is much cheaper than name brand ones from companies like Nest. Also, setup is really easy, no need to mess with your router, just use the ReoLink app and sets everything up for you so you can monitor your home in the highest resolution possible from anywhere around the world. Forget 720P of 1080P, if you want to actually CATCH burglars, you need the highest resolution possible, these cameras all do higher resolution than any other name-brand wireless security cameras on the market today. I upgrade my security cameras every 6 months so this is the best I could get at the moment. As soon as 4K cameras are out I will be upgrading to that also.
In this video, I review the Chamberlain Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener, which I replaced my 50-year old dying garage door opener and also made my garage “smart”.

Here’s a really cool app called AirDroid that lets you connect your Android via WiFi to your computer instantly. What I like the most is the ease of use on this app, simply run it and it connects your phone to your computer instantly. You can easily copy files to your phone wirelessly without messing with any IP addresses and whatnot. Besides that, there’s some other neat features like being able to send SMS messages on your computer.
