Xanboo XG1000S-W Gateway ControllerThe Xanboo XG1000S-W Gateway Controller is a small dedicated computer. It allows you to access and control cameras and other devices in your home and make this information available to you wherever you are. You can access the Gateway Controller from any PC (must be running Windows XP or 2000) with an internet connection anywhere in the world. You can even use the Gateway from your cell phone. You only need to use a PC to set up your Gateway Controller. From then on, no PC is required for it to function. During setup, you will use your PC to access the Gateway control pages through a web browser interface. Once it is set up, you can access your cameras and other devices through a remote service account web site. For security reasons, both the Gateway and Remote Account are protected with IDs and Passwords. Once the Gateway is installed, most of the interaction with the system will be done through the remote service. You will use a standard internet browser to access this web site. This can be on the same PC that you used to set the system up, or any other PC that has an internet connection. No special software is required other than a browser plug-in to view live video, which installs automatically the first time you use it.

DYNATRAP DT1000 Flying Insect Eliminator
Enjoy backyard picnics, barbecues and warm-weather activities without having to shoo away the buzzing, flying insects that haunt your yard. Unlike insect systems that require propane and expensive allure refills, the Dynatrap™ Flying Insect Eliminator operates economically and is easy to install. This mosquito control system eliminates West Nile-carrying insects as well as biting flies, Asian beetles, and other flying pests from your outdoor as well as indoor living spaces: This system is safe for indoor use, and it eliminates insects without adding chemicals to the environment or the surrounding areas of usage.

How it Works

The Dynatrap Flying Insect Eliminator uses two UV fluorescent bulbs, which produce warm light to attract insects. The titanium dioxide-coated funnel produces carbon dioxide, which is irresistible to mosquitoes, luring the insects to the powerful yet whisper-quiet vacuum fan. Insects are collected and trapped in the retaining cage away from the area of usage, providing the user safe pest protection and comfortable living quarters. The Dynatrap Flying Insect Eliminator protects up to a half-acre of land.
