Decorative Faux Rock Doubles as a Solar LED Path Light

October 27, 2012 1 comment

Product Title (In box)The Solar Rock Light from Smart Solar features a photocell sensor to automatically activate its warm white LED at nightfall. The Rock Light has an integrated solar panel at its top to collect sunlight during the day and charge the included Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. By making the Rock Light solar powered Smart Solar took the hassle out of setting it up and gave it versatility. There are no wires to worry about and you don’t have to set it up based upon where an available AC outlet is. Simply determine what area of your yard you would like to add light to at night and set the rock there; it’s that easy. Even better is that the faux rock exterior will help it blend seamlessly into the landscape of the yard making it unnoticeable and a welcome addition to the yards d├ęcor. Multiple Rock Lights along a pathway will help guide you and your guests or place it near a favorite daytime decoration to make it visible even at night. The Solar Rock Light is easy to move and it is important to remember that it requires sunlight to charge its Ni-MH batteries. If left in an area of the yard that does not get adequate daytime sunlight then the Solar Rock Light will provide little to no nighttime light. In an instance like this it is best to leave it in an area of the yard that gets the most amount of sun during the course of the day and move it at night as needed. Another charging option available is to remove the batteries and charge them via a traditional battery charger (sold separately) should you not wish to do so through the solar panel.

September 15, 2012 Leave a comment

Leviton D3206-2LW Multizone Controller and DimmerLeviton’s D3206-2LW is a Multizone Controller and Dimmer system designed for those looking for an advanced, high-end residential device that can dim up to six zones all from one panel. The D3206-2LW can operate in two different ways: As a self-contained dimmer that can dim lights wired directly to the unit or as a control unit attached to the Leviton Control Network communication bus. Using “wizard” menus and pushbuttons to help guide you through settings and adjustments, the D3206-2LW will cater to multiple customizations and features an intelligent infrared receiver which can be used with a remote control. This controller can work with a vast D3200 dimming system or be used as a simple dimmer attached to six zones.

It only takes a few minutes to customize the D3206-2LW, allow it to cater to your specific zone and scene naming schemes. When selecting a specific zone the integrated LCD will display the name of the scene, and the current date and time. This same LCD display will also show the zone’s corresponding light level, making adjustment easy and allowing for simple repetitive settings to be inputted. Enabling a zone local to the D3206-2LW causes the LED status lights to activate displaying the number assigned to the specific zone as well as the selected zone’s brightness level. An auxiliary status indicator (“A”) will also light up when a zone is controlling an auxiliary device wired to the LCnet, but not directly to the D3206-2LW. There are up to eight scene buttons, with the selected and enabled scene button remaining lit. Once scenes have been programmed, any zone of your choice can be adjusted individually and separate from the enabled scene. Available push buttons provide a group dim, group brighten, maximum brightness, and an off switch.

If it Plugs In, You Can Turn it On or Off with a Motion Sensor

August 2, 2012 Leave a comment

The Belkin WeMo Home Automation Switch + Motion Sensor Kit, along with the WeMo App, work together to let you use motion to turn almost anything in your home on or off. By having the WeMo Switch, WeMo Motion, and the WeMo App installed, you can create rules that turn the WeMo Switch on or off when motion is detected. Have a light go on when you enter a room, have a fan go off when you leave. A heater, a lamp, your stereo, you name it – if you can plug it in, you can control it with the WeMo Motion. You can even have it guard the door at night.

Using the free WeMo App, you tell the WeMo Switch and the WeMo Motion what to do when motion is sensed. Just place the included WeMo Motion wherever you like, connect it to the included WeMo Switch controlling a light, and that light goes on whenever you pass by. With the WeMo Motion, appliances wake up and perform their tasks when you get near them, and go to sleep when you leave. Just like they should! Once connected, the WeMo Motion will sense movement within a 10-foot range; sensitivity for the motion sensor can be adjusted when you are creating or editing a motion rule. WeMo is a modular system, so you can add additional WeMo Switches easily and at any time. Control as much or as little of your home as you want – and you can control it all from anywhere using your smartphone! WeMo is your home at your fingertips.
