re: DIRECTV Now during the NC game - LSU Jonno
Just curious where you are located. Pretty much every Bama and Auburn games I've streamed this year have been crap on both PSVUE and Direct TV now. I live in huntsville so I assume the network traffic for those games are terrible. LSU games worked just fine. Last night the NC game was blur...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - LSU Jonno
Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the "hub-life" of IoT. I've had a few wifi devices for years, but recently bought a smartthings hub and some zwave switches and controllers. (I know, wrong thread :lol:) Anyway, I was hoping to get some ideas from the community here on more use cases. So far I've a...

re: Smart light switches? - LSU Jonno
Wemo switches are nice. Until you develop more "smart home use cases" you might want to stay away from a hub-based system, and buy wifi connected solutions. Wifi switches will cost a few bucks more (maybe $5), however I'd start there until you do more research regarding hubs, and zigbee/zwave ...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - LSU Jonno
Yeah, I was not able to set them up with my Pixel phone. I had to pair them with the ihome app with my wife's iPhone. One that was done I could add it to my wink app on my Pixel, and control it through wink. The ihome app for Android is spotty. ETA:. The devices themselves are high build qua...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - LSU Jonno
Yeah, planning on pairing everything to the wink hub 2 and using the Relay to control things. Seems like all of the complaints with the Relay being really slow have to do with people pairing their devices directly to the Relay. People who use it with the hub are much more satisfied....

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - LSU Jonno
Hey guys, Would like some info on the Wink Relay... As I said in my previous post I'm looking to put a smart switch on the wall where I currently do not have a switch. This smart switch would control some smart plugs that lamps are plugged into. Home Depot has the Relay for $70 right now, ...

Hey guys, Looking for a little help/advice. I have a few wemo devices, but am fairly new to the smart home game. I'm finally looking to take the plunge and get a hub since I have a few use cases lined up for things to automate. Questions: 1) When you get a smart outlet...Are the two outl...

re: Oil less turkey fryer? - LSU Jonno
It's a good device. Turkeys come out good, but it's not the same as deep frying. They key as others have said is to make sure you get your birds nice and dry and rub them down with a light coat of oil. I use mine for whole chickens, wings, roasts, pork tenderloins, etc. I usually throw in ...

re: **Pixel/Pixel XL preorder tracking thread** - LSU Jonno
I've never bought insurance on a phone, and if I had an iPhone I'd never buy it. My wife has busted screens on 2 iPhones now. She paid a grand total of $320 (plus tax) for 2 replacement phones. Refurbs from the apple store but same model. No insurance. Insurance would have gotten her new phon...

re: ESPN/SEC Network without cable? - LSU Jonno
I pay $35/month for Playstation Vue to get access to every sports channel I'd ever want. I watch football all day with the ESPN App. The ESPN Primetime game does have buffering/quality issues for most games. Haven't had a single issue on any other channels or on the ESPN game at any other tim...
