Troubleshooting Electronic Devices

Once we upgraded our home by adding a new sound system and home theater system, we found ourselves neck-deep in electrical device problems. It seemed like no matter how hard we tried, we just couldn't figure out how to troubleshoot some of the devices. It was frustrating. Fortunately, a friend of ours took the time to come over and teach us more about figuring out electrical issues. After a little work, we were able to get all of our systems working beautifully. I wanted to make this blog to help other homeowners who might be bad with electronics. Read on to learn how to troubleshoot your gadgets.

The Latest In Home Automation Products

by Summer Li

Home automation is the big thing now. You can automate your thermostat, your refrigerator controls, and even your oven settings to cook dinner before you get home. What other products can you buy that are automated? The newest and latest in home automation products are as follows.

Automated Shades

Do you not want to get up and open the shades? No problem; automated shades will open for you. It only takes a push of a button on a remote control or syncing your shades to your smartphone to get the shades to open by a specific time of the morning. If you do not want to get up from a cozy spot on the couch at night, again you can push a button and draw the shades for privacy. Some people even consider this a very romantic kind of window covering because the automation helps set the mood.

Automated Security System

By your voice command, your security system sets and resets every time you enter and exit your home. No more pushing buttons to set or reset the access code. Speak aloud a keyword that makes sense, and the alarm is set. You can even check to make sure the alarm is set before going to bed by asking your system to tell you if it set.

Automated Lights

On, off, dim, or automatic, your lights in any room of your home can be set to turn on to your preferences when you enter the room. Want your bathroom light to turn on when you enter and turn off when you leave? Yes, you can do that. Want cathedral ceiling lights that dim on command? You can do that too. Automated lights for your yard and garage go off with the slightest movement, alerting you to potential intruders and triggering security cameras. There are several applications and possibilities for automated lights; the ones listed here are just for starters.

Automated Jacuzzi and Spa Tub Settings

Remote controls for jacuzzi and spa tubs? Yes, if you spend a little extra, you can get a remote control for these luxury tubs that allow you to start the tub jets and set the temperature and jet speed to your liking. Some really high-end jacuzzis and spa tubs also allow different users to custom-set individual settings so that one side of the tub suits them while the other side suits a partner.
