Sansi LED Bulbs

I really like the series of LED Bulbs (Smart and Non-Smart) that Sansi has developed. I have used the 27W Dimmable LED bulb in my home. I’m really looking forward to using more Sansi LED Bulbs (smart or non-dimmable) at my house (My Garage Automation Experiment). You can read about it here: The power and brightness of these bulbs are quite exemplary. You should consider getting a set to replace a room in your home.

Flic Smart Button

I think the Flic is one of those Smart Devices that can actually make a significant impact in someone’s Smart Home. It’s not just about automating devices in your home. You can press a button to send someone an email or text message (like your kids telling you that you arrived home), to any other fun routine with lights, music, or find your phone. The Flic Smart Button could be a really smart gift idea for the Extended Family or Friend. You can check out the Flic Smart Button here:
