Imagine having your satellite receiver, DVR or DVD player in one room, and the ability to watch them in another room, without running wires. Or being able to listen to your computer MP3 collection on a pair of powered speakers in another room? You can do just that with the Leapfrog Wireless Audio/Video Transmitter and Receiver System. It even allows you to use the remote control from the other room, so you can actually change the channels on your satellite receiver without having to walk to the main TV room.
The Leapfrog Wireless Audio/Video Transmitter and Receiver System is easy to install, requiring no tools or no complicated (or expensive) cable installation. By transmitting across the 2.4GHz frequency band, it gives you the clearest signal with up to a 150′ range. Its signals penetrate walls, doors, ceilings and floors without any interference. Multiple transmission channels allow you to select the best signal possible, as well as eliminate interference with other household products that may also use 2.4GHz technology.
Summer is approaching and that means that you will be using your pool more often. Don’t wait until the last minute to make sure that your pool is running smoothly. One good item to add to your collection, is a solar powered pool purifier.

With this pool purifier you are not using any electricity and you are reducing the need for chlorine by 80%. The other bright side to this purifier is that you don’t have to use chlorine in your pool anymore–no more bleached hair, bathing suits or dry skin & itchy eyes!

Basketball is a great aid in developing hand-eye coordination and with the Children’s Factory 4-Hoop Basketball Stand with Storage Bag a child can grow these skills and have fun while doing so. What makes this basketball hoop different than one you might pick up at a local toy store is that it uses 4 basketball rims rather than 1 with each rim at a different height. By having each rim at a different height it pushes the hand-eye development because a child will be challenged with rims at different height levels rather than getting used to height of only 1 rim. The 4 different rims sit at heights of 42″, 46″, 50″ and 53″ off the ground with the tallest hoop being in the center of the stand. The 3 shorter hoops are located on the arms of the metal stand and will each fold in when not in use to make the stand easier to store out of the way. Attached to the interior of the stand is a storage bag so that balls (sold separately) can be neatly kept together with other toys when not being played with.
All electronics draw some power even when they are in sleep mode or turned off. For example, a computer monitor uses up to 30 watts even in sleep mode (vampire power consumption). That adds up to about $2.19 a month or about $26.67 a year in energy costs.
Other computer peripherals and home entertainment equipment can draw over 50 watts when off. It is easy to see that the energy being consumed by all of your sleeping electronics really adds up. The advanced technology in Coleman Cable 04946 10-Outlet Smart Strip combines surge protection with automatic power control. It automatically turns off power to printers, DVD players, and other electronics when they are not in use, saving electricity and money – it pays for itself in energy savings in as fast as a few months. Being green just got easier!
How it Works
The Smart Strip senses the electricity flowing to the main outlet, and when there is a decrease in current flow, it automatically turns off power going to the energy-saving controlled outlets. So when the main component that is plugged into the master outlet turns off or goes into sleep mode, the Smart Strip will turn off the controlled outlets saving money and energy.
