10 Tech Gadgets You Need for Your Home This Summer

By | Home Audio | No Comments

Summer is finally here and many people have big plans after the Lost Summer of 2020. Family vacations, cross-country road trips, patio hangs and backyard BBQs with friends, or simply just getting back into a more “normal” routine of going into the office and running errands outside the house. 

Whatever you have planned for this summer, there are loads of gadgets and technology that will make your life easier, your experience more enjoyable and continue to keep your loved ones safe. Check out these 10 must-have tech gadgets for your home this summer:

1. Plugin Air Purifier & Sanitizer

GermGuardian

We’ve all likely become a bit (to say it lightly!) more aware of germs and bacteria over the past year. If you’ve developed a bit of a phobia (or maybe always had one), then you need to get the GermGuardian. Using the power of UV-C light technology, GermGuardian kills airborne germs, reducing or eliminating the ability for fungi, bacteria and viruses to spread around your home, and it fights odors. It’s a simple setup — just plug it into any outlet in your home and it starts working immediately. 

2. Outdoor Smart Plugs

Kasa Smart Outdoor Plug

Smart plugs like WeMo are great for controlling lamps and electronics indoors, but what if your outlets will be outside in the elements? Then you need the Kasa Smart Outdoor Plug KP400. Control your patio lights, pool pump, sprinklers or any other outdoor electronics, from anywhere, through an app. The plug is IP64 weather-resistant, ensuring that it will be protected from dust and water from any direction. 

3. Security Cameras

Wyze Security Camera

Whether you want to keep an eye on your pets or monitor activity outside your home, the Wyze Cam V3 is the perfect, affordable solution. This indoor/outdoor home security camera has tons of features and benefits–color night vision, intelligent motion detection (even identifying when the motion is from a person, vehicle, or pet), two-way audio and voice control, alert siren, and local storage.

4. Doorbell Camera

Ezviz Doorbell Camera

See who’s at your door and monitor package deliveries from anywhere, whether that’s simply in the backyard or driving cross-country on a road trip. The Ezviz DB1C smart video doorbell camera provides Ultra HD video, dual-band WiFi, cloud and local video storage, voice control and helpful support. It’s one of the most feature-rich and affordable video doorbells out there. 

5. Home Audio Solution

AudioFetch Express Front View - Audio Over WiFI

Nothing says summer like drive-in movies! You can bring that nostalgic activity to your backyard with our home audio solution. AudioFetch Home is a simple, innovative solution for streaming audio over WiFi from a computer, DVD player, TV or any audio source. Simply plug it in, connect to the wireless network (choose from your local WiFi or AudioFetch Home’s built-in network), download the app and start listening. 

In addition to backyard movie nights, AudioFetch Home can be used as a TV sound amplifier, to hear the TV better in your home gym, or to watch TV in small spaces without disturbing others. It’s a handy, portable and affordable device for every home!

6. Auto Pet Feeder

Pawple

Now that you’re not home all day every day to spoil your pets, you might find it difficult to get back to the right feeding schedule. An automatic pet feeder like Pawple solves that issue. This feeder holds up to 20 cups of dry dog or cat food, and allows you to program portion size and precise mealtimes. You can even record a personal voice message to play, alerting your furry friends that it’s time to eat and reminding them that you haven’t forgotten about them while out!

7. Smart Light Bulbs

Wyze Smart Light Bulbs

Looking for a way to control lights in your home while on vacation? Need to have lights already on when you arrive home in the dark? Want to turn lights on and off without getting up from the couch?! Smart Light Bulbs are the solution for all of this and more. Wyze also offers these smart bulbs for cheap, which are controlled from your smartphone or voice if you have Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. You can also change the brightness and color.  

8. Robot Cleaner

Roomba

Just because you’re getting out of the house more these days doesn’t mean you have to come home to a mess. The iRobot Roomba uses sensors and camera-based navigation to clean your floors, and some models can even empty their own dustbins automatically. Let Roomba handle the dirty work, so you can enjoy your time out of the house and rest assured it will be spotless when you get home. 

9. Ice Cream Maker

Smart Scoop

Fresh, homemade ice cream on a hot summer’s day–what could be better?! An ice cream maker that automatically senses the perfect hardness and maintains the consistency for hours. Breville’s Smart Scoop ice cream maker allows you to get creative with your flavors, textures, and mixins and even use milk alternatives for vegans.

10. Smart Herb Garden

Click & Grow

Want fresh herbs for your summer cookouts, but don’t have the space or the time to tend a garden? The Click & Grow Smart Herb Garden is for you. This compact indoor garden cares for itself with automatic waterings and by providing ideal light, nutrient and oxygen conditions. A companion app provides helpful tips and allows you to connect with other gardeners around the world to learn and grow.

AudioFetch Home: The Next-Gen TV Ears Alternative

By | Hearing Assistance, Home Audio | No Comments

Do you remember TV Ears? If you watched any television during the late 90s, you couldn’t avoid seeing a commercial for this product. TV Ears were (and still are, in fact!) a sound amplifier for people with hearing impairments to use in their homes, allowing them to hear the TV better. In the late 90s/early 00s when it first came out, TV Ears was a high-tech and extremely useful product–there was nothing like it on the market, and it helped millions of people enjoy hearing the television without distractions or distracting others. 

While TV Ears is still around today, and spawned several lookalike products such as Neosonic and Simolio, they’re no longer the pinnacle of hearing assistive technology for home use. These TV amplifier systems still use the same equipment from more than two decades ago–a dedicated headset that awkwardly hangs in front of the neck–and they lack the flexibility and convenience of more modern hearing assistive systems.

AudioFetch Home, our next-generation audio streaming solution, is today’s simple, affordable and convenient solution for TV sound amplification. Learn why AudioFetch is a modern TV Ears alternative:

No Clunky, Outdated Devices

Those outdated, uncomfortable headsets and neck loops are a thing of the past. With AudioFetch Home, you use a device that everyone already has with them pretty much every second of every day–their smartphone! Using the free AudioFetch App and personal headphones, users have a more personalized and more convenient experience. 

The AudioFetch App software is also continuously updated and maintained in the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores, so you never have to worry about the technology becoming outdated or obsolete. When the AudioFetch Home hardware needs updating, it’s done automatically from our cloud-based servers. All internet-connected AudioFetch hardware looks for new updates at every power up and hourly through its lifetime, so you don’t have to do a thing to be sure you have the latest and greatest.

More Coverage

TV Ears products and the like only offer single-room listening coverage, typically about 100 feet. And anything that comes in between the device and transmitter–be it walls, furniture, or other obstructions–can cause interference in the audio signal. 

AudioFetch Home streams audio over WiFi, so there’s nothing that can block the signal and cause interference. The built-in WiFi covers approximately 200 feet, and you can expand that coverage by using AudioFetch Home with your existing wireless network. That means double the coverage of the TV Ears product at the very least!

More Listeners at an Affordable Price

With the old-generation TV sound amplifiers, you need a separate device for every person that needs to hear better. The costs really start to add up if that’s more than one person! 

With AudioFetch Home, up to four people can listen simultaneously without adding any new hardware or devices. Each listener uses their own personal smartphones and headphones to listen via the free AudioFetch app. At just $229 for AudioFetch Home, that’s a screaming deal for four listeners! That would run you at least $450 to purchase four separate TV Ears devices.  Even better — there are no monthly or recurring fees with AudioFetch and you get a two year warranty on the product. 

A Wider Range of Uses

AudioFetch Home is also suitable for a variety of other home audio applications. Use it as a home gym audio solution to hear the TV while running on the treadmill. Host drive-in movies in your backyard without disturbing the neighbors. Impress your friends and family with a more high-tech man cave setup. The possibilities are nearly endless and only limited by your imagination!

AudioFetch Home is the simple, affordable, flexible and convenient option for amplifying and clarifying TV sound in your home. Order your AudioFetch Home online today. If you have questions or need more information, you can contact us or schedule an appointment at your convenience.  We look forward to hearing from you (pun intended!).

How to Hear the TV Better Without Needing a Hearing Aid

By | Home Audio | No Comments

According to a study published in the International Journal of Audiology, 80% of people between the ages of 55 and 74 who could benefit from using hearing aids don’t wear them. 

This isn’t simply a case of not wanting to wear hearing aids in public because they make the wearer feel embarrassed or old. Hearing aids can be uncomfortable if they’re not properly fitted. They’re also expensive, and oftentimes out of reach for many people. Additionally, hearing aids may not be as effective as they were at first or as effective as the wearer had hoped. For any and all of these reasons, some people choose not to use hearing aids even in the privacy of their homes.

This presents challenges for everyone living under the same roof. The person that needs the hearing aids must turn the TV volume up full-blast to be able to hear, drowning out any other noises in the household and driving partners, children and grandchildren crazy. 

Fortunately for the whole family, there’s a better way!

AudioFetch Home, our newest wireless audio streaming product, helps people hear better, reduces distractions and creates a more enjoyable and high-tech home environment. 

AudioFetch Home - Home Audio Solution

AudioFetch Home is a small device that connects to your television (or any other audio source) and automatically broadcasts the sound to smartphones or tablets via the free AudioFetch App. This home audio solution uses wireless internet, so there are no messy wires or cords to deal with. You can set it up with your existing wireless network at your home, or use the built-in WiFi. It’s a plug-and-play installation that shouldn’t take more than five minutes to get you up and listening!

If you or your loved ones could benefit from using an assistive listening device to hear the TV better, now’s the time to purchase an AudioFetch Home–we’re currently running a 20% off promotion for the holidays! Simply add AudioFetch Home to your cart and enter the code HOMEFORHOLIDAYS. This deal is up at the end of November, so don’t wait!
