In this Segment from 09/19/2016 – Andy Taylor shares some products which will use the Power Outlets in your home for Technology. The Netgear Powerline 1000 extends the network in your home through the powerlines and an easy to set up interface. Devices without WiFi capability yet needing a Net Connection can be connected without running wire across the floor. The device is capable of transfering data up to 1000Mbps.
Andy Taylor also shares with Andrew Capasso the iHome Smart Home connectors which can also plug into an outlet and using the Wink App or Nest or even the Apple HomeKit, can be used to control the power to small appliances.
Lets face it, Technology has made life exciting. It used to be when we wanted to impress our friends we would whip out the countless wallet photos of our kids and point to little Timmy rescuing Lassie from a Well, or something like that.

With today’s Day and Age we can now take the smartphone and share the very cool apps to help us in everyday life and impress our friends and family with our vast knowledge of the web and apps. Thanks to the engineers at D-Link we can now expand the impression to friends and family with our New Wi-Fi Water Sensor.
The D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor is actually a really great idea and although I have never had a water pipe burst on me, I can imagine the damage if I wasn’t able to turn it off. The D-Link Wi-Fi Water Sensor plugs into an outlet near a Washing Machine, Refrigerator, Water Heater or pretty much anywhere water could build into a flood.
When the D-Link Wi-Fi Sensor comes in contact with water, a loud siren will alert the resident and a push notification of a problem will forward to the users set up mydlink account. The outlet itself doesn’t have to connect to the water, cabling can run to areas that could be affected and those serve as the notifier. The unit sells for around $59.99 and is available now
