POINT BY MINUT

POINT BY MINUT 1

Point is a simple solution that providesexcellent results. It can offer you the peace of mind that you need, withoutbreaking your bank account.

It is the perfect system to use in place ofsensors, or cameras, especially where your AirBNB customers don’t wantsomething that impacts their privacy. Think of it as keeping your finger on thepulse of your home or AirBNB rental, Point creates the heartbeat. Whenever youare away from home, or you’re renting your AirBNB to lots of different peopleall the time, you know exactly what is happening in the home.

I set it up in my AirBNB rental on theSunshine Coast in Queensland and found out that the promise that it’s supersensitive to sound was true. However, it can tell the difference between normalsounds and dangerous sounds. So if my windows get smashed, of if my guests arepartying too loudly, I’m going to get a notification immediately. If somethingserious is going down in my house I can react instantly.

Pros

It isn’t going to pick up on soft movementslike footsteps or even music, however an alarm or a loud boom will be recorded.It even takes note of the air, it alerts you if humidity is high, or if a smokedetector, or CO2 alarm, goes off.

It also operates by Wi-Fi so there is no needto worry about cords.

It’s incredibly simple to maintain, too, thereis no set up required or a need to charge it. It comes with a battery and itonly needs changed once a year. That is the only “upkeep” that is required tomaintain your Point system.

It’s also really small, it looks very muchlike a small smoke detector might, but provides you with an enormous amount ofsecurity. All you need to do is put it in your home and let it go (you canattach it to the wall with double sided tape, or screw). You can access the appat any time and set the preferences for how you would like to be updated.

You can go out and not worry about what’shappening at home, because you know if something is going down Point is goingto notify you as soon as it picks up on an issue

It connects via WiFi, so if WiFi is down thenyou’re not going to get notifications.

If you live in an area where break-ins areparticularly common, then you may want to invest in a more robust system.

Conclusion

Point senses what is in the air and listens tothe sounds of your home and alerts you to issues.

In addition to making you feel safer aboutyour security when you’re not home it’s ideal if you have frequent guests.

If you run a guest house or you happen to be anAirBnB host it’s ideal to let you know whether guests are smoking, or causingother issues. It even knows if it’s been tampered with.

REVIEW

The Parrot Flower Power device does a lot of work to collect a wide array of plant-relative data that is necessary to get accurately and uses this to make recommendations based on the specific plant that you are growing. This product is incredibly easy to use. All you need to do is place it in the soil near the plant, then pick your plant from this extensive database. If you find that you are having some problems with your plants and want to figure out why, this is a great tool to use. It also comes at a great price.

The problem is that it can work a little more on the slow side, which can be a bit annoying for users who want to get ahead of any problems with their plants. It also only really syncs through Bluetooth, which means that you need to be near the device to actually use it. That means that you are not able to monitor your plants while you are out. Finally, this item only works with newer iOS smartphones and tablets.

Overall, the Parrot Flower Power does exactly what it says it will. You can track all sorts of data about your plants, which definitely appeals to those people who are interested in using gathering such a large amount of data about your plants. You also have the opportunity to see what maybe slowing the growth of your plants or killing them by tracking different aspects of the plants life. By knowing things like it needs more sunlight or more moisture, you can help turn your plants around. Get yours here!

REVIEW

All of this sounds great but is this a device that you can trust? It has a lot of security features that you can really count on. EveryKey does work on a variety of devices including cars, your house if you have a smart lock, your phone, laptop and even your website accounts. The fact that it can help keep track of your website account passwords alone can be incredibly useful, especially since there are so many websites that you often need to keep track of. When this device is compared to other similar devices, EveryKey has a better battery life and comes at a cheaper price.

This one key solution part of the market is heating up however, so the challenge for EveryKey is to ensure that it can get its product to market and provide the highest level of security. Also they will need to think about other usesof the security of this product given one key solutions will fast become a crowded marketplace.

WRAP UP

There are a lot of passwords and smart technology for us to keep up with these days. It is exactly for that reason that people need to find a solution that will help make all of this a little less complicated for them.
