Don’t feel like wiring up a new doorbell but need to add extra receivers? Or just have a tricky install that you would like to avoid. This wireless doorbell kit comes with 2 receivers and 1 transmitter. Pretty standard, but there is more. The receivers are paired and relay the wireless signal for longer ranges. For example; you could have one receiver in the house and one in the garage. Never miss the door again. Another cool feature is the doorbell button – it never needs batteries or wiring. The doorbell uses a micro-power...

If you have ever ridden motorcycles in a group setting you know how fun, and frustrating, it can be. It is fun because you get to share the ride experience with friends and are more visible riding in a group. It is a bit frustrating at times when you are in the middle of the pack and need to stop for a restroom break and have no way of communicating with other riders around you.
One way to solve this is to bolt on a SENA Bluetooth Helmet Headset onto your existing helmet. Not the most elegant helmet addition, but it works. Well the folks at SENA and SHOEI have joined forces for a seamless helmet communication system, the Neotec II Helmet.
SENA’s exclusive SRL Communication System is tailored specifically to the NEOTEC II helmet. When installed, the SRL is virtually undetectable from the outside of the helmet, and functions with a simple 3-button control. Chat with other riders via bluetooth intercom, listen to music, hear turn-by-turn GPS directions, and much more with the SRL. Learn more about the SRL here.
The NEOTEC II is an every-occasion helmet with the adaptability to excel no matter where your next journey takes you. The convenient “flip-up” versatility of a true two-in-one helmet combined with next-level aerodynamics, an internal sun shield, Pinlock® EVO fog-resistant system, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new SENA SRL (SHOEI Rider Link) Communication System, the NEOTEC II is the pinnacle of modular helmet design for today’s hybrid motorcyclists.
Another bluetooth speaker? Sure, as long as it innovates and improves on the past generations. The KNZ GoDuo bluetooth speaker is pretty unique which says something in this crowded space. For example, the GoDuo’s are built tough, connect for easy carry, can be separated for wider stereo sound, and have magnetic bases. Video of the KNZ GoDuo speakers in action after the break. (more…)
Been difficult to find things worth writing about lately. Most of the gadgets are boring or ridiculous. This TT-DL031 TaoTronics LED Lamp ($49) comes with a built-in Qi wireless phone charging pad. Perfect double duty and less clutter and cordage running across your desk. The TT-DL031 happens to be good at both of its jobs, lighting and charging. On the lighting front, it lets users pick between 6 brightness levels and 5 color temperatures (from 2800 to 6500k). The illumination head can rotate 270-degrees and the arm can move 180-degrees. The base of the lamp has a nice spot for charging your Qi enabled phones and an additional USB port for your non-wireless devices. No motion of the wireless charging speed with this one. There is also a less expensive model, the TT-DL036, which charges at 10W. (more…)

I am obsessed with dashboard car cameras. I have a camera in every car I own and love the peace of mind they provide should something go awry. Dashcams have provided me with some entertaining videos and have also helped to keep a dishonest person honest during a fender bender. After trying several brands of dashcams I have been loyal to BlackVue for the last 5+ years. The BlackVue cameras are made in Korea, they are high quality, and have rarely failed me. Most dashboard camera brands, who will not be named here today, have let me down...
If you happen to have a vehicle that doesn’t have a rear camera or backup sensors, you should check out an aftermarket reverse/backup radar system. A friend of mine has an older pickup truck and has a tough time backing up. The truck is so long that he can’t tell if he is 6-inches or 6-feet away from obstacles, not to mention the dangerous blind spots. Long story short, we spent about 4-hours installing the system this weekend. Read on for that review. (more…)
Before you swipe on by and ignore this little gadget, think of all of the times you could have used something like this in the past. Ever lost something in the drain, had to look in a tight spot that like an engine, ever wondered how clean or dirty your clothes dryer vent is…? There are a ton of uses for this inexpensive wireless LED endoscope.
For just $20-$30 you can have your very own 720p camera with built-in LED lighting at the end of a 5-meter semi-rigid cable. I know, it doesn’t sound that exciting… until you need just this tool (and don’t have it). In my best infomercial voice “but wait… there’s more… if you order now you also get the following attachments… a hook, a magnet, and an angled mirror!”.
The wireless endoscope works with iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows. (more…)
The Apple computer of easy to fly quadcopters, DJI, is planning on releasing this new drone copter On 1/23/18 but somehow it snuck out a day early. Again, just like Apple. Wink wink. This little guy looks like a hybrid between a Mavic Pro and a Spark and is named the Mavic Air. Specs for the DJI Mavic Air include a 32-megapixel camera, a 3-way gimbal, 4k video capture, and a panorama mode. Gesture control and obstacle avoidance are still included. Flight time is expected to be about 21-mintues and comes in black, red, and white. A...
