re: Home Automation CSB - RickAstley
I received another alert this morning that 'kitchen light' turned on at 4:45 AM. I did look over my applets to see if I could increase monitoring or control the plug, but the plug itself is not available in the drop-down of available WeMo plugs for me. This is one of those glitch in the matrix ordea...

Home Automation CSB - RickAstley

I had 3 Belkin WeMo plugs, but recently deactivated and sold my Belkin WeMo switch, while keeping my 2 Belkin WeMo insight switches. This morning I got an alert on IFTTT at 4...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
I found two Ring Home Security Kits locally and that was it. One HD locally has not started clearance pricing on the Ring devices. I find it interesting between both HD and Walmart and how the local stores for each can vary a bit in pricing....

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
Thanks for the heads up, I am going to make a HD run tomorrow. This spring is Tech Flipmas. The LIFX White 800 bulbs from Walmart are easy money. The Belkin Wemo Switch plugs are flip well, but the older models are hard to come by....

[quote]ok my local wallyworld shows $49 hub 2s in stock[/quote] I ran over to the local Walmart that shows $49 in the app, but out of stock. They had two, but because the app doesn't show that the store has inventory, they wouldn't sell them for lower than $74. I'm going to have to just wait. ...

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley
One other heads up, one of the Walmart's near me shows Wink Hub 2 listed at $49.00. The app didn't say there were any in stock, but I called the store and they said they had a couple. Unfortunately, their register rang up the Wink Hub 2 at $74. I am going to go in store and see if I can purchase one...

re: Anyone else preorder the Galaxy S8? - RickAstley
The IR sensor was one of my favorite parts about the Galaxy S5. Simply for the fact I could control any device without juggling multiple remotes. It also has bailed me out on travel, where I brought my roku but not the remote. Without a remote, and the roku being connected to wifi, the IR remote app...

re: Galaxy S8 "most breakable phone of all time" - RickAstley
I purchased an otterbox case and Otterbox's Alpha Glass screen cover when I got my S8. I dropped my phone yesterday for the first time, fully protected, and the Alpha glass shattered, but the screen on my S8 is still untouched. I'll be sinking another $30-$45 on a screen protector to say the least....
