TV Watching Role Reversal

For decades, people have slumped on the couch and watched TV. Well that role is about to be reversed. Samsung’s new 2012 top-end models are bristling with surveillance gadgets including HD camera, twin microphones, face tracking and speech recognition. Coupled with a vast array of apps and these always-connected cameras and microphones, it won’t be long before people start forgetting and unintentional living room (or worse, bedroom) footage makes it onto the web. Samsung’s own privacy policy is unclear as to what data it collects. It seems George Orwell was only 28 years off. My sister had a cover for her budgerigar at nighttime, maybe you should get one for your TV!

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
