The Nanoleaf Alternative That Will WRECK YOUR BRAIN


I’ve been staring at these things for about a month. I can’t get any work done, send help.

These Google Home / Alexa enabled LED Light Panels are absolutely mesmerising, and in the absence of a Nanoleaf Hexagon product or freestanding Nanoleaf desk lamp these are the closest you’re gonna get to some arty modular mood lighting!

The Cololight from Lifesmart aims to mimic the Nanoleaf Aurora Rhythm product by using your mobile phone as a microphone to react to your music, but at a comparatively smaller size are they a genuine alternative to the Nanoleaf or just a cheap knock off?

The Cololight works with Amazon Alexa, and also works with Google Home

The New Sonoff Basic R3 Changes EVERYTHING


At Less than £4 the original Sonoff Basic has always been an amazing piece of kit for your Smart Home, but their latest Sonoff basic R3 changes the game entirely!

This video review will tell you everything you need to know about the new Sonoff Basic R3 and also provide an instructional tutorial as to how to flash Tasmota to the Sonoff basic R3 OTA (Over The Air) by putting it into DIY mode without having to break out the soldering iron or buy other components. If you’re a fan of Home Assistant then life just got much cheaper and much easier!

As a Google Home or Amazon Alexa device this works straight out the box!

BUY THIS SWITCH:
Amazon UK: amzn.to/2JUeq1t
Amazon US: amzn.to/2LB1WiW
Sonoff Direct: sonoff.itead.cc/en/products/sonoff/sonoff-basicr3

BUY THE CAPTAIN KIRK SHIRT:
UK: amzn.to/2XRsFy1
US: amzn.to/2O7JEYD

Written instructions:
Download this stuff to a wireless Windows PC such as a laptop:
TOOL
github.com/itead/Sonoff_Devices_DIY_Tools
TASMOTA

Download Sonoff.bin 6.3.0 is the newest one I can get to work: github.com/arendst/Sonoff-Tasmota/releases/download/v6.3.0/sonoff.bin
Follow the usual practice to connect The Sonoff device to Ewelink to update to the correct firmware (v3.1.0 onwards)

Disconnect Power from the Sonoff device so you don’t kill yourself!.
Put jumper (tiny plastic thing in the bag) on the two pins that are sticking up on the circuit board. BE REALLY CAREFUL NOT TO SNAP THE TALL PLASTIC BUTTON, I SNAPPED IT TWICE AND HAD TO GLUE IT BACK TOGETHER

Connect your laptop and the Sonoff R3 to each other by using the following method:

Create a mobile hotspot on your phone with the folowing details:
AP name: sonoffDiy
Password: 20170618sn

Power the Sonoff R3 back on and it will automatically connect, you’ll know it’s connected your phone shows that there is a “device connected”

Connect to the same hotspot on your wireless laptop. This will enable the 2 devices to see and talk to each other

Extract the Sonoff tools on your laptop and launch the “DIY tool”, you will see your Sonoff R3 listed and you will be able to control it with the tool on your laptop

Use the Sonoff tool to upload the Tasmota bin file that you downloaded in step 1

This is no longer a Sonoff device, it is now a Tasmota device! BUT, it is not yet connected to your Wifi network and needs to be told your Wifi details.

You can access the Tasmota device to configure it by connecting to it’s Wifi network, in my case Sonoff-3012.

Program in your usual Wifi details for your router and Tasmota will join your local network

You can now access your Tasmota device from any computer on your network to make changes to it’s configuration. You’ll now need to find out what IP address your router has given to your Tasmota device, you can do this using fing or by looking in your routers config pages.

You can now configure Tasmota for MQTT or HTTP. The HTTP server is running by default and you can control it using the following commands:
Power on command: 192.168.71.74/cm?cmnd=Power%20On
Power off command: 192.168.71.74/cm?cmnd=Power%20Off
If you’re interested in MQTT (You big nerd) then check this out: github.com/arendst/Sonoff-Tasmota/wiki/MQTT-Overview

Philips Hue vs Lifx vs Novostella: Proof Hue sucks (AGAIN!)



I can finally PROVE Philips Hue is the worst bulb out there with solid video evidence and a side by side comparison of every conceivable category.

This is the only complete side by side comparison of the worlds best RGB Smart Bulbs and ALL their features. This video compares Philips Hue vs LIFX, but also compares the two top dogs with the lesser known Novostella Smart Bulb. Both Lifx and Novostella are Smart Bulbs without a hub, but is there an advantage to Philips Hue’s reliance on a hub?

All of these Smart Bulbs work With Alexa and Google Home, they also work with IFTTT, but not all of them are equal for Smart Home compatibility. Which bulb will be crowned the ultimate winner? Who is the Smart Bulb King? Spoiler alert, it isn’t Philips Hue 😉

£150 Smart Curtain Track: Zigbee, Zwave and Wifi! (Smartthings / Alexa / Google Home)


Really easy to install and starting at £150 Zemismart’s Smart Home Curtain Track now comes in 3 flavours: Zigbee, Zwave and Wifi.

The Zigbee curtain motor comes with a Zigbee switch and the Zwave curtain motor comes with a Zwave dongle and can be installed with or without a switch. Both Zigbee and Zwave motors can connect to smartthings, Amazon Echo plus and any other Zigbee or Zwave enabled hub, you can use whichever protocol you prefer and if you need help deciding then this video will help explain “What is Zigbee” and how it relates to Zwave and Wifi.

The Wifi curtain motor works without the need for a hub as it uses the Tuya Smart life service so if you don’t have a smart home hub then you will still have an option without having to spend extra on a smart hub. The Tuya SmartLife service will allow you to control the Wifi curtains with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, IFTTT and Siri! The Zigbee and Zwave options will allow you to connect to these services via your chosen Smart Home hub.

The electric track is top quality and I’ve had mine in place now for 8 months. This track is perfect for people in assisted living, or even just for smart home enthusiasts. I can’t recommend them enough.

Why It’s FINALLY Worth Having Alexa On Your PC : TOTAL CONTROL!


The Official Alexa app on Windows WAS rubbish, this video will show you how to setup Alexa on Windows 10 and a beta skill that extends the functionality to fully control your PC with Alexa as well as the usual Smart Home control and Amazon Music support.

This video will also show you how to use your echo dot to control your PC instead of a computer mic if you prefer. The Alexa PC setup is remarkably easy, and the software that makes complete control of your PC possible is just as easy to install and use. I’ll even show you how to control Spotify on Windows 10 with Alexa, at least for basic functionality.

Finally I will show you how to do home assistant voice control locally and privately!

This video moves at typical Paul Hibbert speed, you can use the pause button, I won’t judge you 😉

I just want to thank Dylan again for his hard work, this truly is an awesome bit of software. Don’t forget to check out Vox Commando too at voxcommando.com/home/ , and if you’re interested in Dylan’s beta skill then see below!…

Don’t Buy The Netgear Arlo Pro 2 Until You’ve Seen This



The Netgear Arlo Pro 2 has some major failings and most of the reviews are hiding them! A side by side comparison with the much cheaper Anker Eufycam E shows that for most requirements Eufy outperforms the Arlo pro 2, and for hundreds of pounds less money.
I will be completely honest about which areas the Arlo pro 2 wins, and in which areas the Eufy camera has it beat. If you care about your privacy you might be surprised to discover the Eufy camera is the clear winner.
Also in this review I will talk about the smart home aspects of each camera, and demonstrate the ability to view the camera on the Amazon Echo show.

I appreciate The Netgear Arlo Pro 2 is a great camera system, but I think you should have ALL the facts and the potential alternatives before you buy one.

Please checkout both my good friends:

PROOF Philips Hue Is A MASSIVE Waste Of Money


It’s time we stopped paying Philips Hue’s extortionate prices. I’ve owned Philips Hue lights since before Alexa and Google Home existed, and I’ve always felt that despite the price of Philip’s Hue’s products they were a trusted brand and the best quality smart bulb on the market. I decided to challenge my own beliefs and do a side by side comparison with the far cheaper Novostella bulbs which use the Tuya Smart Life eco-system and don’t require a hub. I did some digging on Tuya to see whether the Smart Life platform is likely to have the same longevity and the same reliability as the much bigger Philips Hue brand, and whether we could trust this platform to keep delivering for our smart home. You will be surprised at what I’ve discovered.

This video gives a side by side comparison on colour reproduction, response time, price, ease of use, and explores integration with other smart home products. This video explains everything that both products can do from IFTTT, to Google Assistant to Amazon Alexa. It will also explain how Philips Hue works, who Tuya are and how their business model operates.
I’ve explored the advantages and disadvantages to a system that doesn’t require a hub, and given thought to the real world impact of a cloud based service and have concluded that spending the extra on Hue is just a massive waste of money. I think the facts are pretty compelling but what are your thoughts on my findings? Do you agree or disagree? If so why?
If you’re looking for a Philips Hue alternative or you’re looking for a Novostella Smart Light Bulb Review then look no further, I’ve got you covered 😉 Novostella produce both B22 LED RGB Alexa Light Bulbs and E27 variants. Both also work with Google Home and IFTTT.
