December 7, 2011 1 comment

The Fascinations FISHQ1 USB Desktop Aquarium is a fully functioning fish aquarium that fits perfectly on a desk to help liven up an area. This USB Desktop Aquarium is the perfect blend of functionality and capability because it also doubles as a desktop organizer. Keep your pens, phone, scissors and whatever else you have lying around your desk in one convenient spot that is sure to brighten your day every time you look over and see your small fish companion swimming around. The desktop organizer also comes with an LCD screen on the front that displays the time, date, day and temperature while also having the ability to play soothing nature sounds that come with it. The aquarium is powered by a USB port that can be plugged into your computer or any other USB outlet. The aquarium features a low voltage pump and a filtration system under the gravel. If buying a live fish to put in the aquarium it is recommended that you bring the desktop aquarium with you to pet store or at least the dimensions to ensure you get a fish that can thrive in this size environment.

INSTEON Project: Receive a text message when a water leak is detected

December 7, 2011 Leave a comment


The TriggerLinc is a wireless battery-operated INSTEON transmitter that while used mainly as a door/window alert, it also can send On and Off commands to linked devices using a pair of contacts that can be connected to any Normally Open or Normally Closed sensor. This allows you to turn any type of sensor into an INSTEON-compatible sensor. Here we will show you how to turn it into a water leak detector for use under sinks, next to toilets and the like. We will be attaching the TriggerLinc to a basic water sensor and linking it to a computer controller that can send text or email alerts such as HouseLinc, ISY, Indigo.

Color Touch Pad to Help Control Your Entire Home Audio System

December 7, 2011 Leave a comment

NuVo NV-CTP36 Color Touch Pad
The full-color 3.6″ LCD touch screen of NuVo’s new Color Touch Pad means incredible control, in a striking and simple-to-use on-wall package. The Color Touch Pad can also be used as a whole house controller, providing access to all the zones in your home. The Color Touch Pad can turn zones from any location on and off and change audio sources playing in zones. This display will show full metadata from NuVo sources, such as the NuVoDock for iPod, T2 series of tuners, and Music Port. Album Art is also displayed on the Now Playing Screen when used in conjunction with the Music Port. Features flexible, programmable options for enhanced operation.

Color Touch Pad Buttons

  • Power button. Press this button once to turn on or off the music in the zone. Press and hold it for four seconds and it will power off all zones.
  • Home button. Press this button to view the Menu.
  • Volume Down. Press once to decrease volume one increment. Press and hold to decrease volume faster.
  • Volume Up. Press once to increase volume one increment. Press and hold to increase volume faster.

Party Mode. This setting is turned on and off with the OK button. When selected, all the configured zones in the system will turn on and that Control Pad becomes the Host for the entire house. This function is defeated in an individual zone by initiating a function on that zone’s Control Pad.
Do-Not-Disturb. This sets a temporary source lock on a chosen source within that zone. This selection is also turned on and off by pressing the OK button.
Sleep. The Sleep Mode, when set, allows music to play in that Control Pad’s zone for a specified amount of time. Once the time selection is made, the system will gradually ramp down in volume and the zone will turn itself off at the end of the selected time.
Lock Zone. This temporarily locks the zone on the current source selection. It requires a four digit security code that must be set by your installer. Once the number is set, the zone will remain locked until the security code is entered to unlock it. The default key is 5555.
Lock Off & Lock. This temporary lock works very much like Lock Zone, but is used to turns the zone off and requires the security code to turn the zone on. Read more
