          I am able to see live video feeds on all of my connected cameras all at once or per camera on my iOS smartphone any time I want. I can also select from the 1TB memory, previous video feeds and stop action or roll video. The quality is wonderful and detailed with good color in lighted areas and BW-ish details in low light areas. The night vision works and is high-tech! This system comes with a main "brain" with hard drive that connects to the router and 4 supplied cameras. The cameras are a nice looking white (with logo) and at night show a faint red light.

          I am able to see live video feeds on all of my connected cameras all at once or per camera on my iOS smartphone any time I want. I can also select from the 1TB memory, previous video feeds and stop action or roll video. The quality is wonderful and detailed with good color in lighted areas and BW-ish details in low light areas. The night vision works and is high-tech! This system comes with a main "brain" with hard drive that connects to the router and 4 supplied cameras. The cameras are a nice looking white (with logo) and at night show a faint red light. There are multiple mounting options with the camera mount and support for wet locations plus a backup power source. REVO generously supplies (4) 100' Cat5 cables to connect video link and power over ethernet (PoE) to the main "brain" unit. The box states 800' is possible for length but for my situation, the supplied cords worked great. My set up included running 3 of the 4 supplied cameras indoors. There are a LOT of alert options and options to use a connected monitor via HDMI and interface via supplied mouse. My set up is purely via iOS and it works for my current plans and future use. The alert of motion was set and it sent lots of alerts to my phone. This setting was toggled on/off and there are more options to explore. Recommended. High quality and relatively easy to set up and use.
          A few additional notes:
          *This is my first surveillance system, so my review is not benchmarked against previous systems.
          *The supplied instructions make note of opening the "brain" box to connect the Hard Drive- it was already connected, no need to open this box.
          * The system DOES need to be connected to router, in my case a wireless router connected to cable modem, to stream and use the app. This is a HARDWIRE ethernet connection and you supply the cable. I wish this was connected via WiFi. No options to do so with this model.
          *All 4 cameras were connected but I evaluate three connected to ensure it was not mandatory to connect 4 to the system.
          * The wet connector between the camera and cat5 cable didn't fit and I believe it may if you modify the jacket of the supplied cable. I didn't test this.

          This multi-functional LED flashlight and power bank is the perfect outdoor emergency tool. Includes window breaker and seat belt cutter.

          This handy little device went immediately into my loved one's vehicle after showing them the features of the flashlight, alarm, seatbelt cutter, and of course, the powerbank feature. I too, wonder if it will stop trickle charging if the powerbank completes a charge since I have one vehicle that would do an "always on", at least for 10 minutes after the ignition is turned off and one that turns off 12V power once the ignition is stopped. I'm a huge fan of this device for the low cost and sense of added security it offers as an emergency gadget.

          I have been using this in my daughter's room who has a need to charge multiple devices but we seem to run short on available USB and converter plugs. We have only used the USBs and would opt for all USBs if given the choice at this point in time. This solution is being used in a portable way and doesn't use the mounting fixture it came with. As a simple multiple USB charging system, it is nice, compact and the cord length is sufficient. Good quality construction and good experience in charging tablets, phones and wireless headphones. We are using it in the bedroom and I appreciate a dark room. This unit does have a "on" light on it that is pretty bright for a dark bedroom setting so I would Read More

          This thermos bottle keeps my morning coffee really warm until I'm ready to enjoy it. The seal is easy to use and the finishes are really nice. The yellow cap to bottle connector is somewhat rigid and can be bent into place but tends to snap back into place. High performance thermos with a wide mouth that is easy to clean in the dishwasher. Highly recommended and really nice bottle.Fits about 7 measured cups of coffee!

          This is a well-built rug that has a slightly rough, outdoors rug texture on the light color and soft texture on the dark pattern. The light color is made of multiple colored yarns that adds an interesting, subtle color variation to the light tan color but shows mostly tan. I really like this quality attention to detail. I am using it as an inside rug and it's wearing great but isn't as soft as other rugs, of course. Like most of the rugs I have tested, the shipping method curls the end of the rug, somewhat permanently, and this one still curls on the side that was the tightest wrapped in the package.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, High Quality of Material, Looks Great

Turn on your TV, unplug it from the wall, wait a minute and plug it back in. if it turns on and plays your expected content then the smart plug will work for you. There is a high risk this experiment will reset your TV and all settings, channels, etc will be reset. Don't try this if you aren't comfortable with setting up your TV again. Read Less
