The following products are 2 of the best and unique security gadgets you can purchase for your home security that protects against and defies the old traditions, and brings security into today’s unique fight against break-ins.

 

 

1. The Lock Locker Security Latch


First, is a product that is surprisingly simple, low-tech, but effective: The Lock Locker Security Latch. This product has three steps that protects against lockpicks and even those thieves who have a key. Here is how it works.

 

Let’s say that you are home with the door locked. You’re asleep at night or simply trying to keep up with the kids. The Lock Locker is placed over your deadbolt and door knob from up top, and can detect lock picking and bumping of the door in the event of an attempted break-in. In fact, the Lock Locker makes it impossible to unlock the door from the outside completely, even with a key or a lock pick. The material is made of a strong polycarbonate that is used in the making of bulletproof glass.

 

The adjustable inserts feature 21 locking positions for most deadbolt systems.
You can use this at home or when you travel, so that you feel safe no matter where you are. This is perfect for stay at home moms, those who are first living on their own, those living in apartment buildings or bad neighborhoods, or anyone who wants that extra sense of security when they are home.

 

The Lock Locker is a great security hack that is both affordable and low tech, which makes for the perfect home security gadget for your home. It has received excellent reviews and is affordable, at around $25.00 per Lock Locker. Use them on all of your doors; they are easy to install and makes it simple to defy the traditional and most common methods of breaking into homes.

 

2. Ring, the Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbellring-wi-fi-enabled-video-doorbell-features-1024x502

One of the most popular gadgets that has made its way onto the home security scene is a more high tech, but still affordable, wi-fi enabled video doorbell called Ring.

 

This incredible doorbell comes in four different sophisticated designs and allows you to see and speak with those who ring your doorbell or come within the set parameters of the motion sensor, day or night. You can see and speak with these individuals when you are at home or anywhere else. This is because it is wi-fi enabled and you can use your wireless device to sync to it.

 

Ring alerts and begins live video when triggered by its motion detection or when the doorbell is rung. Both the camera and doorbell are included on the Ring device. Ring looks just like a rectangular doorbell casing, except the discrete camera and motion detector is located above the doorbell, letting visitors, unwelcome and welcome alike, know that they are being watched.

 

The setup is easy — you simply mount the doorbell on the wall of your choosing on your porch area, and you sync it to your personal Wi-Fi network. Ring is powered by using a built-in rechargeable battery, which lasts up to 6 months, or you can hook it up to your existing doorbell wiring.

 

 

 

Worried about it being stolen? Don’t be. Ring has a lifetime purchase protection warranty. They will replace your doorbell if it (very unlikely) gets stolen.

 

The Wi-Fi Requirements need a 802.11 b/g/n 2.4 GHz network. The encryption of the video is bank grade, so you need not worry about anyone hacking into your video feed. The audio is two-way and features noise cancellation. The video itself is excellent. With Full 720p HD video at 30 frames per second, you can see any visitor with 180 degrees field of view. The sensor is also 1280 x 720 CMOS, and has perfect night vision.

 

This popular security device is available for $199.99 online and has received rave reviews.

 

 

 

 

 

Apps That Will Make Your Life Easier

November 6, 2016 Paul 0

We are going to talk about two of the most popular note taking apps that you can find on your smartphone, sure to increase your productivity level up a few notches. Be it Android, iPhone, iPad or Windows 7, Evernote is available on almost all of the OS. It comes with the advantage of allowing users capture virtually whatever they want. To create notes has been oversimplified by Evernote – plus the note will support different types of media. This integrates into a part of a notepad.

 

 

What’s so new about the Evernote?main

 

You never would be tired of searching because searching on Evernote is really easy and convenient. Be it a hand written text inside an image, you can find it using Evernote. You will find variable options for entering text, photos, attachments; you can tell Evernote where you are currently located and you can enter calendar links, email and tags too.

 

 

Now what are tags? They are actually keywords which can be associated with the user created notes to be a connecting link to similar and related subjects. Thus comes in place the powerful search database which is always a single click away and this is made possible only with the ability of adding, removing tags whenever a note is created. Medical professions love this app for making work convenient and quicker.

 

 

What surprises the user is that Evernote has integral cloud sync, and the ability to access notes from anywhere. There are many applications for healthcare professionals, and it can successfully be used to store patient data. The sheer genius of Evernote is that all data we feed to it is properly organised, totally effective and highly productive, and that’s what makes it adaptable to the needs of almost any person’s individual requirements. Thus Evernote can prove to be useful for medical professionals by creating a searchable, organised place to put all our notes and thoughts.

 

 

What’s different with Skitch?skitch-evernote-logo-e1439811160198

 

Skitch, another great app comes into effect when used in conjunction with Evernote. In simple terms, it is a photo annotation tool. This is another product that had been launched by the makers of Evernote. Available on Mac, iPhone and Windows, it’s easy to start off. Your start can be a bare beginning like taking a photo, choosing one from the already uploaded files.

 

 

You can also start things off with a map or a web search. To give the teaching a jump start, you can add texts and highlights to the same. The menu is also very easy to go through and things are made even simpler with the navigable controls. It is too obvious to state that it is a very user friendly app.

 

 

You can create a highly efficient interface using a simple image along with the tags you added. It lets you open up an iOS map of the locality that makes it easy to locate hospitals in the locality. There is an auto save feature which directly transfers all the image annotations to the Evernote library.

 

 

Skitch is at best very simple and useful and it facilitates users to clip from maps from within the app. This along with Evernote can become a time saver for all medical professionals. Simplicity sometimes is the way to go about when it comes to apps helpful for medical professionals – skitch is an example.
