I think you should give houzz.com a try. It's a very good network for all your home ideas.

Another recommendation

by kscott29 In reply to A few that I found

It really depends on what you're going for. Amazon Alexa is really good for shopping. Also great for music and they're getting more and more add ons every day to connect to lights, Nest & thermostats, etc. Dots are great too. But if you're looking to automate things like door locks, lights, tvs etc the Smart Things is more tailored for this sort of thing.

Came across a good list and info in my search: https://www.householdaudio.com/best-smart-home-device/. Hope it helps

Is BitCoin accepted?

by erionaajvazi In reply to A few that I found

Lately, the term BitCoin has been circulating all around, but do we actually know anything about it?
On a discussion with the students of AAB College and other attendants of the discussion, it’s been discussed about BitCoin as a digital currency and whether it is accepted or not.
The panel consisted of 4 wise men, including here: The governor of the Central Bank of Kosovo, a professor, an analyst and a BitCoin user.
‘’It is a technology that was founded 7-8 years ago. It is indeed a complicated process for those who don’t deal with technology.’’
‘’Years ago, you saved a value by investing it into real estate, but now people want to invest in something which is independent from the government, state or banks.’’
‘’At first, BitCoin was distributed for free to around 100 people and now everyone wants to buy BitCoin. Is this a good thing? I don’t know. I am fearing it, but also it is not cheap, neither fast enough. 1 BitCoin equals to about 15000 euros.’’
The Central Bank governor said: ‘’We released a press conference where we warned that we will not be responsible for people’s investments in BitCoin, because these are individual risks.’’
Meanwhile Professor Rexha said: ‘’The demand and profit is incredibly huge, but there are risks.’’
‘’Knowledge on this field is needed when it comes to those who want to invest in BitCoin, because it is a future discovery. Also, you should be careful because by not having knowledge, you may contribute to terrorism or money cleaning.’’
‘’It can be considered a global platform. Until now, 600 billion dollars have been invested in it. It can’t either be hacked, because it costs a lot more than buying a BitCoin.’’
When asked if governments can stop it, he said that each government has its own interest, but generally they are not including themselves much, yet. Meanwhile, the Central Bank of Kosovo governor said that they will react as the Central Bank of Europe does.
‘’As long as there’s a lot of request, there is no problem, but in the moment of decrease, then there will be a big risk.’’

Smart Security blog

by thequiggler In reply to What are some good blogs/ ...

If you're specifically interested in Smart Security tech, I'm a contributor to a blog called http://SmartSecurity.Guide - which is a guide to new technologies around the Smart Security (like alarms, cctv, all-in-one security devices). The reason I focus on Smart Security tech is that it's one of the SmartHome sectors that's really making a difference / taken off in the last few years . . .
