harge, Sync and Transfer with Belkin's New Line of USB-C Cables for the new MacBook

PLAYA VISTA, Calif.--Belkin, creator of people-inspired products, today introduced a full assortment of USB-C cables designed for the all-new MacBook and other USB-C devices.


"USB-C provides users all the essential everyday functions that they expect from their computers without the need for different connectors," said Melody Tecson, director of product management at Belkin. "Our new range of USB-C cables enables users to take advantage of the capabilities of the USB-C technology and lets them connect, charge, and transfer data rapidly and safely."

The USB-C port offers users the ability to rapidly charge, take advantage of USB 3 data transfer speeds for connecting to external devices and peripherals, and connect video output such as HDMI, VGA, and Mini DisplayPort. One of the most notable features is the reversible design, which eliminates the annoyance of trying to figure out which way to plug the cable into your peripheral.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
