re: Reolink RLC-1220A now available $100 - Korkstand
I don't know how far away your neighbor's car is, but if my math is correct, and if the info I've researched is correct, then the absolute max distance that a license plate should be legible with that camera is somewhere between 60 and 70 feet in the best conditions. That's perfect lighting, plate d...

re: Reolink RLC-1220A now available $100 - Korkstand
"The hook up" guy on Youtube seems absolutely enamored with his Reolink cams, and he's been through quite a few cameras! Maybe you can tweak a few settings to improve the quality for your specific location. ...

re: Flume water meter monitor - Korkstand
Pretty sure it picks up signals from the meter, it's not measuring the water flow itself. [quote]When water flows through a household water meter, a magnetic disc spins inside of the meter, which correlates directly to a water flow rate. The Flume sensor measures the magnetic field from the mete...

re: Flume water meter monitor - Korkstand
[quote]After a week of monitoring and 2300 gallons of water usage I can report the difference between the meter reading and the flume is 0.1 gallons.

re: Unifi Protect security cameras - Korkstand
Back with another head-to-head, this time the UniFi G3 Flex (1080p/2MP, $79) vs. the Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW (5MP, $50). Subject is a picnic table with a DeWalt impact driver on top, ~30' from the cameras. Very minimal lighting, night mode on both cameras. Amcrest [img]https://i.imgur.com/pWnBSMU...

re: Office screens while vpn from home - Korkstand
If you remote desktop then yes the people at the machine can see. But typically when you connect via VPN it just gives you access to resources at work as if the computer you are using were there, so you aren't controlling another computer. ...

re: Best all in one computer under 1,000 - Korkstand
Can I ask why you want an AIO specifically? Space? Looks? I ask because you can get better value from separate monitor and computer. And there are some incredibly small desktop machines if space and noise are concerns. They can even mount to the back of a monitor to give you a pseudo-AIO. Also...

re: Getting WIFI to shed: Google WIFI, other? - Korkstand
Two brick walls will likely degrade the signal pretty significantly. If you don't want to or can't run wire, the next best option is a point to point wireless link. There are tons of options here, and any of them should work fine over just 65' (some of them shoot for miles). Search google or...

re: Unifi Protect security cameras - Korkstand
Alright, so I've got some time in with Protect at a relatively busy location. It's got 8 cameras recording always (and events generated on motion) running on a Cloud Key Plus with 5TB Seagate spinning drive. I'll start by saying the spinning HDD is absolutely the bottleneck by FAR, but for home ...

re: How does HP continue to trick people (myself included) into buying their printers? - Korkstand
Well they did it, and it wasn't the first time. From what I understand, they've faced class action suits over this practice, but I guess the profits outweigh the legal costs. Edit: Slight correction I guess, the printer didn't actually "brick" the cartridges, it just refused to use them. But g...
