এবং সবাই এর তিব্র নিন্দা ও আইনগত শক্ত বিচার দাবি করছেন।

সম্প্রতি বাংলাদেশের ক একটি আইনে বলা হয়েছে একটি মসজি দে একসাথে তারাবির নামাজ বা ওয়াক্তের নামাজ আদায় করতে পারবে ২০ জন মানুষ। আর এই আইনটা করা হয়ছে লকডাউনের জন্য। কিন্তু সাধারণ মানুষ এইখানে প্রশ্ন করছে তাহলে কী করোনা শুধু মসজিদেই আছে। আর বাংলাদেশ সরকারের নেওয়া কিছু সিদ্ধান্তঃ লাগছে এই দেশের তাওহিদি জনতার বুকে। সাধারণ মানুষের দাবি বরাবর দেখা যায় করোনার তান্ডব শুরু হলেই মসজিদ মাদ্রাসা বন্ধ করে দেওয়া হয়। আর বাংলাদেশ সরকারের কাজ গুলো বার বার বল্লতে বাধ্য করছে তাদের তাহলে কী বাংলাদেশ সরকার ইসলাম বিরোধি। কিন্ত বাস্তব জীবনে পুরোটাই উলটো প্রমান করেন প্রধানমন্ত্রী। আর বাংলাদেশ সরকারের কাছে অনুরোধ সাধারন মানু ষের দয়া করে ইসলাম কে পালন করতে দিন। আপনার কী মনে হয় মতামত জানান আমাদের।

Google Nest Hub Max Review

Google Nest Hub Max Review

Google Nest Hub Max Review

In this video and article a review of Google's Nest Hub Max after using it for 6 months, what features have been the most impactful, how it differs from the Nest Hub, how the device is held up, and our recommendations.

 It's been six months since we bought our Nest Hub Max and in this video, I'm going to go over the top features of the device, how the device has held up over the past six months, some downsides we've encountered while using the device, and my overall recommendations for whether or not you should pick one up yourself.

Let's dive in. Released in the second half of 2019, the Google Nest Hub Max is a Google Assistant display and the larger cousin of the popular Nest Hub which was released in 2018 after using a Nest Hub Max for over six months I think the main selling points are the Google Assistant integration, photo display capabilities, Google Photos integration, the great sound quality for playing music and podcasts, and a camera for music control, security, and video calling. 

The device retails for $229 US dollars and comes in both charcoal and chalk colors. If you're trying to decide between a Nest Hub and a Nest Hub Max, in short, what sets the Nest Hub Max apart is mainly its larger size better sound quality, and the inclusion of a camera. If you're looking for a more in-depth comparison between the Nest Hub and the Nest Hub Max we've actually already made that video you can get to it by clicking the card in this video or checking out the link below in the description. 

Now let's talk about our first main feature of the device which is the Google Assistant. The Google Assistant is incredibly powerful on the Nest Hub Max and can be used for a wide variety of requests you can ask it things like what's the weather in

# Raleigh today?  

Google Assistant: "It'll be cloudy with a

forecasted high of 67 and a low of 48. Currently at 66 and partly cloudy.  

# Josh: "Play Billy Eilish on Spotify." 

Google Assistant: "Here's Billy Eilish on Spotify."

# Josh: "Show me some chicken recipes." 

Google Assistant: "Sure, here are some recipes."

# Josh: "Set a timer for 45 minutes."  

Google Assistant: "45 minutes and that's starting now." 

# Josh: "What's on my calendar?" 

 Google Assistant: "There's one entry for today at 3:30 p.m.you have film nest hop max video."  

# Josh: "Remind me to call mom this afternoon." 

Google Assistant: "Okay I'll remind you at 4:11 p.m." 

# Josh: "Play Rick and Morty on Hulu." 

 Google Assistant: "Okay playing rick and Morty on Hulu."

#Josh: "Show me what can the Google Assistant do in 2020 video on youtube."

Google Assistant: "Sure, here are some videos." 


 Now that the last video you saw it's actually a recent video we did it's about the top things you can do it with Google Assistant in 2020. Now if you want to watch that video you can do that by clicking the card in this video or as always, checking out the link below in the description the Google Assistant does make really good use of the Nest Hub Max's 10-inch 1280x800mHD display but the thing that I think really utilizes that screen the best is a feature called photo frame. 

What photo frame allows you to do is you can set it up in the settings of the Google Home app, you can choose to have photos displayed on your Nest Hub Max and the best part is you can choose photos from your Google Photos library. The ambient light each you sensor next to the camera on the front of the device helps adjust the brightness and color temperature of the display so your photos always look great in any given lighting situation. 

You can favorite photos that show up on the display, share them with friends and family through Google Photos or if there's a photo that comes up that you don't want to see, you have the option to archive it right from the display. The photos displayed on the Nest Hub Max have been one of the most impactful parts of this device's experience because they evoke emotions. 

When you're seeing these photos constantly being displayed on the device, you're reliving memories from your past, you're rediscovering things you may have forgotten and probably the most emotional and impactful things is when you see friends family members and pets that have now passed away, and you're rediscovering the memories that you've shared with them and that definitely gives you a positive experience interacting with this device in a way that you don't normally get with many other tech products. 

The Google Photos integration is also what makes this device a great gift for  a parent grandparent or other family member you can set up their Nest Hub Max to show photos from a shared album that you can share with multiple different family members and you all can contribute more photos to the shared album throughout the year so as you go on vacations or take new pictures of your kids or grandkids, you can contribute those photos to the shared album and they'll continue to show up onthe Nest Hub Max. 

Now there's more to display than just photos. On the Nest Hub Max, tap the screen once and you'll see the main UI for the device. Swipe to the left to see recommendations Google has for you like recommendations for YouTube videos, music playlists that it thinks you'll like, news stories, reminders or calendar events that you may have. Swipe down from the top of the device to control your smart home from lights, smart plugs, to robotic vacuum cleaners, to security cameras, and thermostats, there are a lot of things that you can use the Google Assistant to control through the Nest Hub Max. 

Next up let's talk about sound the nest hub max features much-improved sound over the Nest Hub thanks to its stereo tweeters at the front of the device and the 30 watts 3-inch woofer in the rear. In terms of Google's speaker lineup, I'd say it's the best-sounding smart display out there and the only product that Google makes that sounds better is the Google Home Max. 

Here's a sound test between the Nest Hub and Nest Hub Max, just to give you an idea of how much better the Nest Hub Max sounds. The Nest Hub Max is great for playing music and podcast and it integrates with several streaming services like Spotify, Google Play Music, YouTube Music, Pandora, Google Podcasts, and more the speakers are also great for watching cooking videos on YouTube or your favorite shows through services like Hulu and HBO Now. To see the full list of music and video streaming service integrations with this device, check out the link below in the description. Alright now let's move onto our last big feature of this device and that is the 6.5-megapixel camera included with the Nest Hub Max. 

The camera is used for a variety of applications including video calling, security, face match, and my personal favorite, music gesture controls. The video calling features of the Nest Hub Max are actually pretty useful. You can make video calls through a service called Google Duo which is google's competitor to Apple's FaceTime except that Google Duo actually works on many more devices than FaceTime. 

The camera on the front has a wide 127-degree field of view the wide-angle camera makes sure that it can fit you and multiple people around you all in the frame during a video call. If you shift or move your location while on a video call, the camera will actually follow you to keep you in a frame which is pretty neat. You can also leave video messages for people as well if they don't pick up on their devices. 

The camera on the Nest Hub Max isn't just for video calling though, it can also double as a Nest security camera for your home as well as you can check in on the live feed of the device from the Google Home app and you can also subscribe to the Nest secure subscription service and have your footage saved for a certain period of time on Google's cloud. 

When someone is looking at the live feed of your Nest Hub Max, a green LED display at the top of the device and a little pop-up will come up on the screen letting you know that someone is currently viewing the feed. Now if you don't want to allow people to drop in on the feed but still want to use the camera for video calling, you can disable the security features of the camera in the device settings through the Google home app. Another thing the Nest Hub Max uses the camera for is to recognize your face with a feature called face match. With face match, it will display proactive notifications just assigned to you like reminders someone may have assigned to you, events on your calendar or even a video message left specifically for you.

Lastly, the camera is used for one of my personal favorite features on the Nest Hub Max called music gesture controls. You can raise the palm of your hand towards the Nest Hub Max when media is playing to play or pause media. In the 6 months I've been using this feature I have to say that it actually works consistently well, like better than you would expect a feature like this to work, at least in my experience. 

Now not everyone necessarily wants to have a camera on all the time and you can turn off the camera with two ways. The first way is by swiping up from the bottom of the display and tapping the camera icon to turn it off, the second way is by sliding the mute switch on the back of the device, which will physically disconnect both the camera and the microphone from the device. Now the camera mute switch leads me to my first downside about this device. 

There's no camera cover like there is on the Lenovo smart display. I have now there are some situations where you will want to disable the camera, physically disconnect it from the device but leave the microphone connected. That's why I feel like a camera cover at least would cover the camera and you would see that okay there's no way this camera is recording any footage. Other than that though there's not much else that I wish Google would change with this device, I haven't run into any reliability issues with the device over the past six months. Overall

I've really enjoyed using the Google Nest Hub Max. I think it's a great device if you want a photo frame, if you want a great Google assistant speaker, and probably most of all, if you want a great gift to give either your parents or your grandparents or other relatives.


Best baby monitors of 2021

Best baby monitors of 2021

Best baby monitors of 2021


In this video and article a review of Best baby monitors of 2021.

what's the best baby monitor of 2021?

In this blog, I'm going to tell you about our four favorites in five different categories and why we love them. You'll be shocked to learn that this list even includes a non-WiFi monitor. I hated non WiFi monitors till like two months ago. If you feel like we snubbed your favorite monitor, be sure to tell us in the comments below. We just might even review it if we get enough people yelling at us. And oh, by the way, be sure to stick around till the end of this video to find out how you can win our favorite baby monitor of 2021. We're doing this video high school yearbook style with fun categories like best personality and most likely to not piss me off in the middle of the night. We're going to start off with the coolest tech which is basically like the biggest nerd but the kind you wanna hang out with. 

1. Miku:

We went with the Miku Baby Monitor for this category. But why does cool tech matter in a baby monitor anyway? Other than making you feel cool and superior. Well, it means that companies invested in its product and dedicated to staying ahead of the curve. So it'll be a long time before Miku becomes obsolete, unlike a former favorite baby monitor Laris. Also, this type of high grade tech is what allows the Miku to monitor your baby's breathing without the use of any wearable devices. Miku's internal hardware also includes a built in security chip which, according to them,makes it near impossible for this monitor to be hacked. Uh, just getting something. What's this? We have an honorable mention? Honorable mention, coolest tech. Cubo Ai Baby Monitor.

2. Cubo Ai Baby Monitor:

We are currently testing the Cubo Ai Baby Monitor and the picture quality is so outstanding that I wanted to give it a shout out. So shout out to you Cub And the winner of our next category, best wallet friendly monitor, goes to the Lollipop Cam. So for the many of us on the lookout for a great monitor that won't cause heart palpitations because of its price, we highly recommend the Lollipop. Guys, in the budget-friendly category,

3. Lollipop Cam:

Lollipop Cam straight up licks the competition. I mean it, it really sticks out. And I've gotta say, it's a sweet deal. It provides more than decent video and sound quality, it has excellent night vision and has a variety of mounting options. If you're on a budget, you'd be a sucker not to consider the Lollipop. Yeah I pack a lot of puns in a very short period of time so let's all collectively take a second to catch our breaths. Alright, moving on to the best vital monitoring category. There are a handful of monitor that can now monitor your baby's vital signs, but for us Miku wins out because it's breathing monitoring technology doesn't require your baby to wear any electronic devices. It's not vital to the situation. Yeah?Another one? Honorable mention. Best vitals monitoring.

4. The Nanit Plus:

We wanted to mention the Nanit Plus in this category because although it requires your baby to wear Nanit's custom sleep sack or belly band, they're free of electronics just like Miku. Although the Owlet does a great job of monitoring vital signs, it requires the use of an electronic wearable, which has to come into contact with your baby. And it also means that you have to remember to keep the sensor that goes inside the sock charged. If you want to actually see your baby then you have to buy the camera unit as an add-on. The camera itself has run-of-the-mill features so when your baby outgrows the sock you're left with just an average camera. So probably not the wisest choice in this category. Okay, who wrote this stuff? What do you want? 

5. Eufy Spaceview:

Two months ago this particular category would have been my least favorite, and that category is best non-WiFi baby monitor. We've tested a handful of traditional video monitors now and while they aren't are top choice for monitoring your baby, the Eufy Spaceview stands out in spite of its weird bug-eye design. We really like this monitor for its sound alert feature and because the paring unit's super slim and lightweight. Also if you have twins the Eufy parent unit can connect to multiple child units. Another one? Honorable mention.

6. Summer Infant Zoom HD:

 Best non-WiFi. Summer Infant Zoom HD. Now I really like this monitor because of its movement alert feature.It's customizable and it's a feature that comes in real handy when your baby gets older and becomes much more mobile. On the down side the Summer Infant pairing unit is really clunky and large and not very user friendly. Summer Infant, you win most athletic, because you're big and beefy, and you let me know when my baby's on the move. 

Dishonorable mention. Okay, yup. That makes sense. Infant Optics DX are you kidding me? Have you ever seen the cult-classic Dazed and Confused? The Infant Optics DXR-8 is the Wooderson of the baby monitors, class of 2020. The guy who refused to let go of his glory days. -I'm thinking about getting back in school though, man. [John] And for some unfathomable reason was seen as cool. Well he's not. And neither is the Infant Optics. It's time to grow up. You know, learn some new skills and become a productive member of society. You too, Wooderson. - Alright alright alright.

 Our last category is the best app. This is like best personality like who do you actually wanna spend time with, who's fun and not annoying. So the best app goes to, Nanit Plus. Having a solid app experience is super important when it comes to choosing a WiFi baby monitor.You can have the most advanced monitor in the world but if the app sucks, then you're gonna hate it. The Nanit app has an exceptionally well laid out design and connects very quickly. The main page of the app is free of clutter, directing your eye straight to the video feed. 

The app also captures historical movement and sound information and because you can customize the sound and movement alerts, the historical activity feed is easy to consume, only showing you info that you want to see. The dashboard of the app provides information related to how well your baby slept and gives you a night summary time-lapse video. It also comes with this nifty movement map which is basically a heat map detailing how active your child was at night. But most importantly, the app acts as basically a personal sleep coach that provides detailed and useful information about how to get your baby the best night sleep possible based off analysis o your baby's sleep habits. 

No, it doesn't mean standing crib side screaming "Focus, eyes shut! Remember what we practiced". But, you know that would be cool too. And then because we couldn't help it, we included a best all-around baby monitor category. The valedictorian of the class of best baby monitors 2021. Even though graduation is canceled this year. The award goes to Nanit Plus. App user experience is a crucial feature for any WiFi baby monitor and as I just mentioned, the Nanit Plus knocks it out of the park. The sleep coach tool is unique to Nanit Plus as well. Concerning the fact that it has the ability to monitor breathing, it comes with white noise, two-way audio, and HD video resolution makes this the best all-around the baby monitor of 2021. Nanit, you are most likely to succeed at not pissing parents off.

That's it, you made it to the end and we appreciate you watching. And thanks to the best baby monitors class of 2020. You work hard, you watch our kids, you drain our bank accounts. Hey, you're a lot like real high school seniors. Okay now as promised, here's info on the contest. We're giving away one of each of our top four picks for best baby monitor throughout 2021.

The Best Home Security Camera

The Best Home Security Camera

The Best Home Security Camera

In this video and article. When it comes to finding the right security cameras for your home, I know it can be really overwhelming to find what best fits your needs and will protect your home.

But don't worry, Ring has many different solutions no matter what your situation is. So when finding the right security camera for you, I like to ask a few questions.

The first would be, is this camera going to be indoors or outdoors?

The second would be, do you need extra lights for extra brightness?

And then the third would be

how do you want to power this?

Battery, solar, hardwired. So for example, if you wanted to put it outdoors and you wanted extra lights and you wanted to hardwire this, then we would recommend our Floodlight Cam or our Spotlight Cams.

So let's get into all the different security camera options now. So the first security camera I want to talk to you about is our Floodlight Cam which is actually one of our most popular products. And I think a really cool piece.

So it's very customizable. It has two external lights and the camera in the center and the lights you can adjust to move up or down, whatever best fits your needs.

And the camera, you can rotate accordingly as well. So you can get the best view for whatever you're trying to see. It does require a hardwired connection and a junction box. And specifically if you have an existing light fixture, it's perfect.

So if you have a floodlight that you want to swap out to upgrade to a Floodlight Cam, it would be perfect. If you don't have one, you do need to install a junction box. So we would recommend getting a licensed electrician, if you're not comfortable with advanced DIY.

Some other really cool facts about our Ring Floodlight Cam is we have a 270 Degree Range of Motion for the motion detection for the lights. And the camera has 140 Degrees Horizontal Field of view with Customizable Motion Zones.

It also has a Remote Activated Siren. My friend loves it. She has had the same floodlights in her house for the last 20 years, and she's been able to swap them out for the Ring Floodlight Cam, so it's been an added source of security because she has both of her lights and her camera.

The next security cameras I want to talk to you about are our Spotlight Cams. Unlike our Floodlight, the lights are actually built into the same frame as the camera, and they're very versatile.

They come with multiple different wired options and they can fit almost every situation around your home.

I actually have all Spotlight Cams around my house. So between the Spotlight Cams, you can choose between the Mount, the Wired, the Battery and the Solar.

So the first one I want to talk about is the Spotlight Cam Mount. It's very similar to our Floodlight Cam where it does require a junction box connection. That being said, it does allow a little bit of customization.

We have three different included brackets that you can use to put in whatever direction that suits you. So for example, if you want it on the side of your house, we can have a very direct turn to make sure that you capture that exact tiny little narrow space.

The next camera I want to talk to you about is our Spotlight Cam Wired. It has a 20 foot cord and plugs into a standard outlet. I actually have this all over my house.

I have it in my front yard, my backyard, and on my driveway. Like our Mount, it has advanced motion detection and customizable motion zones. The next camera I want to talk about is the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery.

This is a really easy device because it's battery-powered and it can go anywhere since it doesn't requirea hardwired connection. It also has our standard Quick Release Batteries and space for two.

So that way, when this battery dies, the other one will kick in and power your device. So our next device is our Spotlight Cam Solar. It is our Spotlight Cam Battery with an additional Solar Panel to help keep your batteries charged.

To connect the Solar Panel to the Spotlight Cam Battery, you just need to plug it in. We do recommend that you keep your Solar Panel in direct sunlight if possible. So all of our cameras come with 1080p HD Night Vision Two-way talk and Live View.

So let's check out my Spotlight Cam in my backyard. Tap in and then I'm just going to live view. And here you can see my backyard. If I wanted to use my Remote Activated Siren or manually turn on my lights, I would press this icon for the lights.

This one for the siren. To activate Two-way talk, I simply press the green phone button, talk to whoever's in my backyard. And then to end the call, I just press the red icon.

So I'm going to show you how to set up a Customizable Motion Zone. You go into Motion Settings and then you select Motion Zones. And here you can see the view of your backyard.

To add a Motion Zone, you just select it and drag to whatever area you want to make sure that you get your motion detected in. You can set up multiple Motion Zones, and it's important that you set up a Motion Zone to make sure that you get motion alerts.

Our next suite of cameras are the Stick Up Cams. They're very versatile cameras for both indoor and outdoor, especially if you don't need the extra lights. They have multiple power sources.

You can either plug them in, battery or solar. And we have the Stick Up Cam Elite, which is Power over Ethernet. All of our cameras have up to 1080p HD, Night Vision Two-way talk and Live View.

Our first camera is our Stick Up Cam Plug-In. It comes with both convenient adapters for both outdoor and indoor. And if you want backup power, you can add one of our Quick Release Batteries.

That way, if you lose power, you always have a backup. Also you can easily mount it or put on a flat surface, like a tabletop or a bookshelf. Our Stick Up Cam Battery is very convenient.

All you have to do is use one of our Quick Release Batteries and set it wherever you would like. You can put it on a flat surface. You can mount it, and you can move it around wherever you want to record.

I personally really like to use it for my other home security system, my dog Jasmine. Speaking of Jasmine let's take a cute animal break and check out my jazzy cam.

As you can see, she's hard at work. Our Stick Up Cam Solar is our battery powered device with an additional solar panel to keep your device charged.

To attach, you can remove the tab and you insert like such and now they're connected. We do recommend that you put your Solar Panel with lots of direct sunlight. The Stick Up Cam Elite is a great option if you have a POE or Power over Ethernet connection.

So you have continuous internet connectivity and power. So to utilize, you move this very nifty swivel, open the back. Plug-in your ethernet cord. And then plug-in the other to our adapter. Then you plug another ethernet cord into your internet modem.

Your ethernet hub or your ethernet switch. Our next camera is our Indoor Cam. Rings first indoor-only camera. It has a plug-in adapter that can go into any standard wall unit and it's small but mighty.

It has all the same functionality as our Stick Up Cams. And I think it's adorable. It's very convenient. It can sit on any tabletop or flat surface or you can mount it. Also, as you can see, there's a little blue light,that's a Recording Indicator.

So with your privacy in mind, you can choose when you want this device to be recorded or not. In order to turn off your recording. You turn off the Record Motion, confirm, and now your device will not record the next motion.

So it's currently not recording motion, you shouldn't get any Motion Alerts. To turn your recordings back on, you turn Record Motion back on, and now you should get an alert next time motion is triggered and a recording. Tap, Live View.

To maximize the benefits for your cameras, we have two optional subscriptions. The first is Ring Protect Basic, which is $3 a month or $30 annually per device. And that covers being able to Save and share your videos, Recurring snapshots in-between detection and being able to use People-only mode, which is getting alerts just when there's a person detected but all of your recordings are still there.

Ring Protect Plus is $10 a month or $100 annually, and includes everything in Ring Protect Basic plus 24/7 monitoring, if you have an Alarm, covers all of your devices at a single location and extends your warranty on your devices.

Okay, well, I hope this answers all of your questions about Ring Security Cameras. If you have any more questions, just drop in the comments and we'll get to it in our next episode of Ask Ring.



TOP 5 Best Motion Sensor and Motion Detector Camera

TOP 5 Best Motion Sensor and Motion Detector Camera


TOP 5 Best Motion Sensor and Motion Detector Camera

In this video and article. Motion sensors are vital to home and business security. It is important to get the best motion detector since your security system is only as effective as the motion detector set up in your home or workplace. A reliable motion detector must alert you for intruders while not triggering a false alarm because of moving pets.

In this video, we’re going to look at the top five motion detectors available on the market today.

We made this list based on our own opinion, research, and customer reviews. We’ve considered their quality, features, and values when narrowing down the best choices possible. If you want more information and updated pricing on the products mentioned, be sure to check the links in the description box below. So here are the top five Best Motion Detectors. The fifth product on our list is the Fosmon WaveLink 51005HOM.

This motion sensor alarm from Fosmon works great indoors. It is wireless and is easy to install. On top of that, it can detect motion within 16.4 feet. Its receiver, on the other hand, works even when it is up to 500 feet apart from the motion sensor. The Fosmon WaveLink’s tone and the volume of the alarm can be set according to your preference. 

It has 52 alarm tones and 4 different volumes that you can choose from. We also love how it helps those with hearing impairment through their visual alerts and LED lights. Everyone can benefit from this device!

Its pros are

* It calls for a very easy set-up. Simply plug its receiver into a regular 110-volt outlet. No need for wiring within the walls.

The sensor itself is easy to install

* The LED light indicators are great for the hearing-impaired.

* It has 5 levels of volume to choose from so you can adjust it based on how you want it

* It has a pretty wide sensor to a receiver range. If you want your sensor set up in your gate

outside and your receiver plugged in the bedroom on the second floor of your house, you can easily do that with the Fosmon WaveLink.

However, the cons are:

* The beep or alarm will not stop unless plugged off the wall, so it will be a bit annoying when you have legitimate visitors waiting by your front door. In that case, it might be best to put it near the door so that you may turn it off immediately;

* The motion sensor is super sensitive which is both a good and a bad thing

* It is also not waterproof. So be sure to place it under a covered area. For its price, the Fosmon WaveLink is an excellent device. Just know where to put it, and it will work like a charm, protecting your home or workplace in only a few minutes of installation. Up next in the fourth place is the LITOM Solar Motion Sensor Light.

A brand well-known for its solar lights, LITOM made a wireless motion sensor that’s a great light as well. The LITOM’s new model has 122 LED solar motion sensor lights that can detect movement within 26 feet or 8 meters. It runs through solar power so it needs to be set up outdoors, under straight sunlight to charge. At night, it will light up your garage or driveway according to your preference.

Once it detects motion, it will illuminate the surrounding for 20 seconds.

The LED solar motion light is waterproof at IP67.

Its pros are:

* It has solar-powered lights which save you some  bucks off your electricity bill;

* It is waterproof and heat-, and frost-resistant. So expect it to last through any type of weather;

* It has three light settings Security Mode, where it will turn the light on when it detects movement; Smart Brightness, where it stays on all night and turns brighter when it detects motion; and Permanent On, where the light remains on all night;

* It is also easy to change the setting with a simple push of a button; and

* it is easy to install

However, the cons are:

* The motion sensitivity and range are not adjustable;

* This sensor depends on solar energy alone. If it runs out of battery in the evening, and there’s no sunlight to recharge it the next day, it would be impossible to use it;and

* The timeframe that the solar light can stay on depends on the amount of light it has absorbed throughout the day. If you want the lights to last all night, it is imperative to put the lights in an area where there's direct sunlight with little to no shade. If you are all for green energy with a security function, the LITOM Solar Motion Sensor Light is the right fit for you.

This motion sensor serves its purpose and will frighten any unwanted visitors from coming into your yard uninvited. The third product on our list is the Mr. Beams Motion Sensing Spotlight. Another product that brags about easy-installation: Mr. Beams can be placed in your dedicated area in just about 5 minutes.

This motion-sensing spotlight can detect movement within 30 feet or a little over 9 meters. It is battery-operated and has an energy-saving feature. It shuts off automatically after 20 seconds after it detects movement.

Mr. Beams Spotlight can be pivoted in four directions so that you can position the lights depending on the area's need. This spotlight is also weatherproof, making it perfect for outdoor monitoring.

* Its wide sensor range of 30 feet keeps you extra protected; and

* its energy-saving feature ensures that any unwanted visitors will be warded off. And it gives you enough light as you go from the garage to your front door.

However

* Although it is said to be weatherproof, the spotlight has no IP rating, so it’s not waterproof; and

* Also, this device needs 4D batteries to work, and those are not included in the package.

For illuminating dark spots in your home when needed, this spotlight will work just fine.

It may be best to put it in areas where it will not be affected too much by the weather to avoid water from flooding the light. All in all, the Mr. Beams spotlight is great for its price and will light up and scare any uninvited guests. The second product on our list is the Ring Motion-Activated Camera

A camera, a motion sensor, and a spotlight rolled into one. When it comes to security, this Ring Motion-Activated Camera has it all. This device allows you to have two-way communication. It is compatible with Alexa, and alarms you on your portable devices when it detects motion.

It lets you monitor your home in HD at 1080P. It also works great even at night with its infrared vision.

Aside from the motion sensor, it has a camera, siren, and a floodlight designed to secure your home sweet home. Its LED floodlights will deter any unwanted visitor from your home. Its microphone and speaker allows you to listen and talk to the intruder. That is also great to give directions to your naughty pet.

Its pros are:

* This device will allow you to monitor your home using your portable device like cell

phones and tablets. So you’re updated with what’s happening in your house even when you are miles away

* The motion sensor sensitivity can be adjusted

based on your preference;

* There is also a siren or alarm that you

can control using your phone; and

* It can record videos and can come in handy

if you need evidence to file police reports for serious intrusions.

However, the cons are:

* It is pretty expensive compared to the other motion detectors we have listed so far;

* An additional subscription is required to allow video-recording after the 30-day free trial is up; and

* The installation of this camera requires a hardwired connection to electrical boxes that are also weatherproof. For overall home protection, the Ring Motion-Activated Camera is a feature-rich device you can rely on even when you are away from home. Before we reveal number one, be sure to check out the description below for the newest deals on each of these items.

And, be sure to subscribe if you want to stay up to date on the best products on the market. Finally, the top product on our list is the Kangaroo Motion Sensor. Having a great security system does not mean getting an expensive one, and Kangaroo Motion Sensor proves it. Installation is very straightforward, as it is peel and stick. And all you need is a smartphone for monitoring.

It’s great for monitoring any room at home, and you will also be given the option of professional monitoring for better security. If you do subscribe to their plan, there will be more features added, like text, voice notifications, and integration with Alexa. This motion detector can tell when a furry friend causes the motion with its Pet Rejection feature, hence, minimizing false alarms.

Its pros are:

* It is very cheap! It’s about 29 times less expensive than the Ring Motion Sensor. For everything it has to offer, this one’s a real value for money

* It is easy to install. All you will ever need is a smartphone and a wall to stick the motion detector.

However,

* It has a limited free trial. You have to shell out a bit more cash on your subscription to maximize its features such as real-time alerts sent to your phone and video viewing through your mobile device app

* There's a 5 minute arming time when you cannot exit the app. This makes it a hassle if you want to arm the motion sensor when you're about to leave. And that’s all for our top five motion detectors on the market. Head over to the description below for links to more detailed info on each of the products.

Arlo Ultra 4K Review

Arlo Ultra 4K Review


In this video and article.  Last year Arlo Ultra had a groundbreaking release. Not only because it was the first battery-powered 4K camera on the market, but because it was also one of the worst product releases I have ever seen. Now a little over a year later we are going to revisit this camera and see if it is worth its hefty price tag, so stay tuned.

So as I mentioned at the beginning of this video Arlo Ultra had a pretty rough start, so bad in fact that they actually pulled it from shelves and had to re-release it a few months later. One of the issues was that the cameras wouldn't connect to the Base Stations, and when they finally got that fixed the camera quality was just as good, if not worse than 1080p which the Arlo Pro 2 was offering.

But there had been a lot of tweaks and improvements over the last few months. So let's see if they have fixed those issues and if the Ultra is really ultra. First, let's take a look at what they promised on the box. We've got 4K video with HDR,

auto-zoom and tracking, magnetic charging, an integrated spotlight that allows for colored night vision, we've got custom activity zones, 180-degree viewing angle, crystal clear two-way audio, and the advanced Smart Hub. Now the advanced Smart Hub is where things started breaking down with this camera.

When I initially purchased this camera and tried to set it up, I had so many issues trying to connect my cameras to the Base Station. Sometimes they would connect, sometimes they wouldn't, they were always dropping off. When I could get them to connect, the video quality was horrible. It probably wasn't even as good as the 1080p Arlo Pro 2 cameras. I eventually boxed everything up, returned this thing to Best Buy, as I walked into the store customer service yelled out, "Oh, here comes another one."

When I asked them about it they said that these things were coming back as fast as they went out. Everyone was returning these things. Shortly after that is when Arlo pulled them from shelves and scheduled the re-release a few months later. And I'm happy to say that after a few months of software updates they were able to fix these issues.

My cameras are now able to connect to the Base Station fine with no issues, and the 4K quality is what I expected. It is a lot better than the previous Pro 2 version. Alright, now that we've talked about some of the features of this camera, let's see what comes in the box.

So with the Arlo Ultra, they redesigned the Base Station and they now call it the new Smart Base. With the new Smart Base, it has connections for a LAN port, power port, it's got a sync button on the back, and then a reset button. But if you notice with this one it no longer has a USB port on the back for local storage. Instead on the bottom of the Base Station, they now have a slot for a micro SD card. I'm not sure why they got rid of the USB port on here and chose to go with the micro SD.

The micro SD can hold a max of 250 gigs of storage. So take a look at the cameras we can see some of the features that I mentioned before. We've got the new spotlight on the front, we've got the larger lens for the 4K sensor built inside. We have got the microphones and the speaker on here.

If we take a look at the bottom of the camera we see the new magnetic port for charging. This thing has a nice strong magnet that holds to the camera really nice and does not fall off easily. Pushing the button on the bottom will release the camera. Another feature that this camera provides is that when you're releasing the camera it has what it's calling a catch.

So when you push that button and the camera comes out of the shell, it will come out part of the way so the camera does not fall out. You can then grab the camera, pull it out, replace that battery and then just pop it back in without having to adjust the angle of the camera itself so you don't miss that angle up. If we take a look at the back of the camera it has the same threading as previous cameras.

So if you do have older mounts you're gonna be able to use these on this camera too. Installation is really easy to do. If you're new to Arlo you're just gonna install the app and create a new account. Once you've created the account and logged in, you just need to click on add device, from there you're just gonna follow the onscreen instructions.

Okay, so once you have your devices set up and installed, this is what they are going to look like in the app. I've got all of my cameras set up here, if you click on the play button in the middle of a shot it is gonna bring up live view. Once you have the live view set up, tapping on it you can see the different options.

We can either go full-screen up in the corner here,  you can hit the microphone to do a two-way talk to somebody on the other side, and then it also has the speaker so you can mute the speaker if you wanna do that. In the bottom-right corner, we have the gear icon. So if you click on the gear icon you can see the settings for this camera.

Turn it on and off, battery, stuff like that. If we go down to look at some of the stuff like video settings, here is where you can adjust your settings. Local 4K live streaming, we've also got the auto zoom-in tracking, you can change video modes, so if you wanna change that field of view from the lowest setting of 120 all the way up to the 180 you can do that in those settings there, and then we also have the low-light settings. This is where you would adjust your spotlight if you want the spotlight on. If you do turn that off you still have night vision, it just has infrared night vision, but turning the spotlight on

will allow you to do the colored night vision. Backing out of all of that, if we look at the tab at the very bottom it says Library, so if we tap on Library this is going to show you the clips that have been recorded. Now Arlo came out with a feature not long ago where you can access your local clips from the app.

It used to be before we could only view your clips from the cloud, now that you can do it on local storage, here is what it looks like if you look at the top, it has my Base Station listed with a down arrow, I'm gonna click on that. I've got the option of cloud storage or not.

If we take a look at cloud storage you can see all the different clips here. It shows the thumbnails, currently with the local storage, it is not loading up thumbnails. Arlo said that they are working on this and they are gonna get it fixed, but right now you cannot see what those are gonna be. Jumping over to the next tab we have modes.

So if you take a look at modes, you can see all of your different devices or your Smart Hubs. I'm gonna click on the top one here and it's gonna give me the options for the different modes that I can have. You can either arm or disarm your system, set up a schedule for when you want cameras to say be turned on or off.

We've also got geofencing, so if you leave an area it can arm your system, or disarm, and then below that we have some custom modes that you can add. Jumping over to the settings tab, this is where you can either adjust your profile settings or set up your Arlo Smart Subscriptions. All right, now that we've gone through that let's see what this camera is capable of.

This is an audio and video test of the Arlo Ultra. Now that it has been a year later here is what it looks and sounds like. I think it is so much more improved I am about 10, 15 feet away from the camera right now, and just the quality of this looks fantastic.

But now that we have a daytime test, let's see what it looks like at night. So as I was doing the testing at night I wanted to see how the colored night vision was gonna compare to say something like a Ring camera with their night vision. I did a test where I put the cameras side-by-side next to the front door and I walked outside to see what it was gonna look like.

It was pretty dark outside, the streetlights were already on, here is a shot of what the ring was picking up. Already has the infrared turned on, it is showing night vision, and then this is now what the Arlo Ultra picked up. It looks like the sun is still up, and it is still daytime.

I was shocked at how much different it was and how much light I was still getting using the colored night vision that the Arlo Ultra offers. All right, so that demo that you saw between ring and Arlo was from a while back before they actually clean up the quality of the image. Now that they have done a bunch of updates and cleaned up the quality, 

what do you guys think of the night vision now?

Does it look a lot better?

Does it, is it a lot less blurry than it was before?

Let me know in the comments below. And I'll tell you right now, that light is really bright. For something so small, on a battery-powered camera, I (laughs) went blind staring at this thing talking to you guys right now.

 All right, for those of you who do not want to use the spotlight on this camera in certain areas, here's what it looks like with the infrared turned on, no spotlight. This is what the night vision quality looks like. 

What do you guys think of this?

The next thing that I wanted to revisit with this camera was the auto zoom-in tracking. Now when I used this when the camera first came out I did not like it at all. It didn't follow me, it was going all over the place, and even though I'd be in one corner it would zoom in on the other corner to something that was not even moving.

Revisiting this a year later, I'm still not that happy with it, and the biggest reason for that is that when you turn this feature on, you are no longer recording in 4K. Now you do get a pop-up letting you know that it's going to be disabling 4K, but to use this feature it actually converts the camera to a 1080p image. That way the software can zoom in where it wants to and keep the same quality,

But you no longer have the option of shooting in 4K. I don't like that at all. I would much rather have that feature off, shoot in 4K, and then decide later as I'm viewing the clip where I want to zoom in on. Talking about a few things I was not happy with, I was hoping with this new camera and Base Station that the clips were gonna load faster.

That when I clicked on the play, view the live stream, that they would just pop right up, and I would be able to see everything that I wanted to because with the Pro 2 version, it was kind of laggy and it took a while to load up. Unfortunately with this new Base Station, it's not different at all. It still takes anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds to load up a clip, and I've even had it on occasion

where I click on live view and it sits there and says connecting forever, and I have to close the app and reload it again. Not something that you want in a security camera if there's an actual emergency. All right, so the last thing that I wanted to mention was the Arlo subscription plans.

They've got two subscription plans. One is called the Premier 2K plan, for $10 a month you get up to five cameras that will record with 2K quality to the cloud. The other option is the Elite 4K option. Now for $15 a month you can have up to the same five cameras record 4K quality a month. Now, this is only if the camera records that 4K quality.

With both of those packages, you get 30 days of video history that you can look back on. It has rich notifications, so you can actually have it only notify you if it detects people or vehicles, packages, or animals, or turn any of those off that it won't notify you for those things.

The last thing is that it offers intelligent alerts. So when you do get an alert on your phone, you can push and hold on to that alert and it will give you some quick options. Those options are that you can either mute that notification, you can sound the alarm, you can have it call a friend if you have somebody that lives close, or you can actually hit e911, now that is an option that I only available in the U.S., but what that does is that it'll call emergency services to go to your house to check it out.

Now, Arlo does have one other option and that is called the no subscription plan. Now with that, all you get is the ability to look at local storage on the Base Station. So for that, you will have to stick in that micro SD card, but now from the app, as I talked about earlier, you can view the local clips. The only problem is that that feature almost seems to still be in a beta test mode, as you saw I can see the clips, but I can't see what the clip is off.

There is no thumbnail for me to view. Arlo said they are working on that and they are going to be fixing that in the future, but it's been a few months and I am still waiting for that fix. Now having subscription services is kind of the norm out there. If you look at Arlo's competitors like Nest and Ring, they all have a subscription-based system that stores things to the cloud, but not everybody has that. If you wanna avoid the cloud altogether and manage your clips locally there are other options out there say like Wyze Cam or Eufy that are also doing a good job at providing a non-subscription service to you.

 Okay, so here's the bottom line, there are some things that I am not a big fan of with their software, but that is software related stuff and things that I hope that Arlo can fix in the future or at least have the potential of fixing. I've compared this camera to most of its competitors, even other Arlo cameras, the Pro 2, the Pro 3, Blink, Eufy, Nest, and Ring, out of all of these cameras not only is this the only 4K camera, but it stands out in image quality above all the other ones.

Out of all of the cameras that I test, whether it be ones that have to be plugged in like Nest, or battery-powered ones, the quality of the 4K on this camera is much better than everything else, and it really shows he you zoom in on anything. A couple other things that I like with this camera are I love the 180-degree viewing angle and the colored night vision. As you guys saw, the colored night vision is really impressive, and something that really stood out to me with this camera.

So with all of that said, I do recommend this camera, but what do you guys think?
