Remote Viewing with Motion Detection


Our previous Swann Communications product review was about the Digital Private Eye.  It was a handy device, unobtrusive but ultimately rather limited.

The DVR4-Pro-Net Combo Kit is a much more professional setup and a bit more complicated, both to install and to suss out the various features.
With 4 CCTV cameras, an LCD Monitor and a DVR recorder this combo kit means business: it will keep your home or business premises under surveillance for a long, long time, recording only when it detects motion as one of the options.  It can even alert you over the Internet if an intruder is afoot!

Meet a Puppy-Sized computer: the Norhtec MicroClient SR

Written by Martin van Zanten on . Posted in PC Hardware

Read more: Meet a Puppy-Sized computer: the Norhtec MicroClient SRThe web is a fast medium: before you know it you're surfing off to other shores. So let me get the message out straight away: if you have a tight budget, love our planet, and need a computer, then put the Norhtec MicroClient Sr at the top of your shortlist! This is the smallest computer I have seen until now, and can be used in many situations to replace the larger and heavier computer system.  If you are starting with a clean slate, even better: definitely consider this tiny powerhouse! It's a small computer in physical size, uses a lot less energy. BUT let its Puppy Size not deceive you: there's a lot of power inside to address your (personal) computing and communication needs.

Written by Paul Moons on . Posted in Video

Read more: Popcorn For All - Syabas Popcorn Hour A-110 and B-110 Network Media Tanks...In March we took a look at the original Popcorn Hour A-100 and it quickly became our in-house media playback device of choice. Sure, it wasn’t perfect - but its near flawless display of 1080p content, along with its incredible ability to playback almost every file we threw at it, made us sit up and take notice.

Now, less than five months later, Syabas has announced two new Popcorn Hour models which we have been lucky enough to get our digital hands on.

Read on for our experiences with the new Popcorn Hour A-110 and B-110 NMTs as well as a comparison and update on our take of the original A-100 Network Media Tank.
 

 

 

D-Link DNS-323 Compact NAS RAID Box Review

Written by Paul Moons on . Posted in Storage

Read more: D-Link DNS-323 Compact NAS RAID Box ReviewComputerworld has recently reported that in the next few years the sum total of Earth’s data will be in the two zetabyte vicinity. One Zetabyte is equal to one billion gigabytes.. in case you were wondering.
 
My personal and family data storage is still a little off that, but it has increased significantly since the birth of our child four years ago. This data is mainly in the form of digital photos and videos or work documents and it is all over the place: DVDs, CDs, hard drives in different PCs, etc.
 
The D-Link DNS-323 NAS RAID box offers a relatively inexpensive long term storage solution which can keep all your data in one place, allow universal access and when setup as a RAID 1 device, secure it from hardware gremlins.

DIY Kyoto Wattson: Energy Monitoring made Elementary

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: DIY Kyoto Wattson:  Energy Monitoring made ElementaryWatts in a name?  Well, that must have something to do with electricity, doesn't it? 

It's pretty elementary as Sherlock Holmes would say to his inquisitive offsider, Watson.

 

I love the name that DIY Kyoto has given to this energy monitoring device. 

Do It Yourself Kyoto is also pretty indicative of the type of company behind this. 

So let's see what the Wattson is capable of telling us apart from all the pretty colours and numbers.
