re: Best SmartHub For House? - humblepie
It's strange, I had someone tell me the other day they moved from smart things to wink b/c something to do with not liking the ST smart lock integration. This person has MULTIPLE houses completely automated. Wish I had more info on the things he didn't like. It made me happy that I chose wink(I have...

re: Tips for sleeping longer? - humblepie
[quote]Do you have to piss like a racehorse as soon as you get up? Curious if maybe a full bladder is what is waking you up early. If so, you may want to watch how much water you drink 3-4 hours before you go to bed as well.[/quote] I have done this too. I have to force myself to cut back on wate...

re: Tips for sleeping longer? - humblepie
Magnesium supplement just before you lay down. 200-400mg back off if a bit if you get "stomach" problems from it. It works great for relaxation. Also, l-theanine 200mg is great too. I stay away from melatonin b/c of dependency concerns but if you want to take it get super low dosage pill and don...

re: Amazon Prime - humblepie
This has happened to me quite a few times but worse. USPS scans a package as out for delivery, then scans it as delivered but doesn't actually deliver it until the next day. This only happens with amazon packages....

re: Which smart thermostat to get? - humblepie
Many reviews says it's Alexa integration is very poor. If you really want Alexa functionality you are better off getting a ecobee3 lite and buying an echo dot. Besides the Alexa feature the 3 lite does not support dehumidifiers and a few other A/C addons so consider that....

re: Better to buy WiFi extender or a whole new router? - humblepie
Excellent advice however not everyone wants to or is capable of going through the trouble of wifi signal propagation troubleshooting. I am in IT and am perfectly capable of setting up any network solution that I want but made the decision that I just wanted a "no fuss" wifi at home. I think that the...

re: Better to buy WiFi extender or a whole new router? - humblepie
For everyone with a story like yours there is also someone who went with a better router and still had some wifi deadspots. It doesn't matter if your wifi signal goes down the street if something in your home is producing some interference between your 4k tv and the router. [quote]Mesh will be g...

re: Better to buy WiFi extender or a whole new router? - humblepie
Well, it depends which is why i take exception to ramrod's assertion that anyone recommending a mesh system is trying to validate their expensive purchase. Do you want the easiest to setup and manage solution knowing wifi will "just work"? Mesh is a good option, however within the mesh systems th...

re: Better to buy WiFi extender or a whole new router? - humblepie
Love how you seem to know exactly how wifi will perform in everyone's house somehow. I was slow to move to a mesh setup as well but after I wasted money "upgrading" to an R8000 router I am glad I did. If I has listen to a condecending clown like you I would still be fighting wifi dead spots all the ...

re: Anyone here upgrade their Tivo to the new software (Hydra)? - humblepie
They sent me an invite for a field trial a while back but nothing ever happened after that. How do you go about choosing to upgrade to the new UI? Edit: Never mind I found the signup site. I requested the upgrade and supposedly it takes 24-48 hours to trickle down through the servers....
