    LiveWatch Goes to Capitol Hill

    LiveWatch CEO Brad Morehead recently testified at a meeting of the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade that explored the Internet of Things and its implications for the future of the way we live and the way we keep ourselves safe. nike air max 95 pas cher The Internet of Things, which is the technical term used to describe the direct communication between electronic devices, already includes 25 billion interconnected smart gadgets, and is expected to grow to include 50 billion by the end of the decade.
  • ADIDAS Yeezy Boost 350 V2
  • Many of these devices are tools meant to simplify daily tasks, such as smart refrigerators that tell owners what they need to restock when they go shopping, and smart watches that help users plan their workout schedules. Clayton Kershaw Jersey However, as Brad explained to the subcommittee, the Internet of Things can also save lives. kanken “With a fully developed Internet of Things, existing security procedures could be seamlessly automated to prevent and mitigate crimes in a more efficient way,” Brad explained. Maglia Shaquille O’Neal “Emergency alarm systems and sensor data could travel from machine to machine instantly, smart applications could be used to determine the probability of false alarms, and security camera feeds could be transmitted directly to responding officers, helping them do their job most effectively.” LiveWatch’s ground-breaking home security devices and applications pair the internet of things with industry-standard surveillance and communications technology to provide our customers with unprecedented levels of security.

  • Investment in IoT will lead to job creation, especially in the tech sector, and it will also give rise to new ways of managing consumer data that will require congressional support for anti-data breach laws. “When it comes to privacy, I think we’ll see the emergence of two models of personal data management,” Brad said. Nike Air Foamposite “There will be an Apple model of sorts where the data is kept private, and a Google model where it is more public. adidas sale uk It’s not a winner-takes-all situation, so both can be used to enhance IoT-based services.” The other panelists presenting innovative IoT-based technology were Daniel Castro, Vice President of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation; Brian van Harlingen, Belkin International’s Chief Technology Officer; and Rose Schooler, the General Manager of Intel Corporation’s IoT Strategy and Technology Office.

    The Benefits of Image Sensors

    lw-camerasMotion sensors are powerful home security tools. adidas chaussures homme They can be used for everything from turning on lights when someone enters your yard at an odd hour to triggering an alarm when a potential burglar tries to break into your home.

    However, gel lyte 3 these formidable devices are now being replaced with something even better: image sensors. These updated sensors not only trigger events based on motion detection, but they also take images of the scene whenever action is detected.

    But why go through the hassle of getting new sensors if motion sensors already do a pretty good job of sounding the alarm when help is needed? Here are four key reasons why image sensors are even more beneficial than motion sensors:

    1. The ability to visually verify threats to your home: In addition to the standard detection capabilities of motion sensors, air max 90 pas cher image sensors give you a still image of the scene when an alarm is triggered.

    How to: Avoid Getting Your Phone Stolen

    smartphone user Cellphones—and especially smartphones—are popular targets for thieves because the devices’ increasing complexity leads to higher returns on the stolen-goods market. In 2013 cellphone theft rates continued to increase despite law enforcers’ attempts to curb them. adidas nmd donna In some areas, 50 percent of robberies are now cellphone related. nike chaussures Some will advocate for totally stopping cellphone use in public areas like sidewalks and trains as a means of avoiding phone theft, but such an approach isn’t always realistic. Communications within businesses, schools and friend groups are accelerating with every technological innovation, and sometimes waiting to respond to a work email simply isn’t a viable option. fjallraven kanken cheap Keeping in mind that everyone should try to do their best to limit unnecessary or frivolous public cellphone usage, here are some tips for how to avoid having your phone stolen while still using it when necessary:
    1. Be aware of your surroundings: Some places—like the grocery store you frequent because you know the owner—are obviously better locations for pulling out your phone than others. new balance 373 bleu orange That being said, thieves’ best weapon is the element of surprise so you need to always pay attention to what’s going on around you before pulling out your phone. Nike Air Max 2016 Dames Groen If you see someone paying a little too much attention to your actions, maybe it’s not the best time to respond to that text that just buzzed in—even if you think you’re in a safe place.
    2. Seek cover when using your phone: Arguably the worst place to use your phone is in an open area where someone can run up, snatch your phone and be off without deterrents. nike air max dame If there’s no one blocking access to you (and your phone), think hard before hopping on your smartphone.
    3. If you can’t move, don’t do it: Just like you don’t want to check your phone in an empty alley, you also don’t want to check it in a cramped place like a public train. Danny Amendola Jersey If you’re getting bumped into regularly just trying to keep your spot in line or on a train, odds are this isn’t the time to Google the recipe for what you want to cook for dinner later.
    5. Also note: if you notice the same person continuing to bump into you, try to create distance between yourself and that person as soon as possible—the third “accidental” collision might actually be your phone getting grabbed.

    6. Hold on tight and look defensive: Keep a nice strong grip on your phone when you’re doing mobile business or contacting your family on the go; using two hands if possible is ideal.
    7. Asics Gel Lyte 5 Donna
    8. If you’re sitting down, holding your phone close to you and visibly blocking it with an elbow or knee shows potential thieves you know what’s going on and that you’re not an easy target.

    9. Obscure your device’s value: A simple and maybe slightly beat-up case does a good job of this.

    How Smoke Detectors Work

    Smoke detectors

    Households have had the benefit of fire detection since as early as the 1870s, when inventor William B. Asics Gel Lyte 3 Watkins’ heat-sensing alarm system made it possible to automatically send a telegraph to the fire station when the temperature in a home exceeded a specified threshold. adidas nmd uomo Later, fire detection capabilities improved with the development of commercial smoke detectors in the 1960s.

    Today, smoke detectors are the fastest and most effective means of fire detection we have. air max pas cher The importance of filling ones home with smoke detectors and the importance of changing each unit’s batteries regularly are well-known, but the inner-workings of these important systems often go unexplained.

    There are two main types of smoke detectors: photoelectric detectors and ionization detectors. Nike Free 2.0 For the curious, here’s a brief explanation of each:

    Photoelectric detectors: The inside of a photoelectric detector contains a light source and a sensor. Adidas The light source is positioned so that it projects a beam of light that goes past the sensor without activating it. nike air max 2016 goedkoop However, if smoke enters the chamber, the light drifts so that it hits the sensor and activates the detector’s electronic alarm. new balance grigie bambino Photoelectric detectors are good at detecting things like burning fabric, which produce more smoke than flames.

    Ionization Detectors: Generally more sensitive than their photoelectric counterparts, ionization detectors contain two magnets and a tiny amount of a radioactive material called americium. Canotte nba Donna The radiation from the americium, which isn’t even powerful enough to penetrate a single sheet of paper, breaks electrons off the oxygen atoms in the detector’s chamber. A.J. McCarron – Alabama Crimson Tide These electrons in conjunction with the chamber’s magnets generate a small electrical current. The splitting of an electron from its atom is called ionization, so this chamber is known as the ionization chamber. nike air max pas cher If smoke enters the chamber, the ionization process is disrupted.

    Five Easy Tips for Home Wi-Fi Security

    wifi Though hard to imagine 10 years ago, the presence of wireless internet is now common place in American homes. Scarpe Nike Air Max Enabled by simple-looking Wi-Fi router boxes, we can shop for clothes, pay bills, and even power home security systems from our household networks. New Balance buty damskie

    The boundary between digital information and physical property has all but disappeared for many types of products. nike chaussures This development has created the need to protect our Wi-Fi networks similarly to how we protect our homes from burglars.

  • Here are five tips to get started securing your home wireless network:

    1. Change your default network administrator passwords: Most Wi-Fi services provide a webpage where you can change your network and router settings. The default usernames and passwords of these settings pages are well-known by hackers, so you’ll want to make a point to customize your log-in information.
    2. Change your network’s SSID: The SSID is the name of your network, used to distinguish it from surrounding networks such as those of your neighbors. Canotta Donne Knowing the name of a network doesn’t give anyone the ability to hack their way inside directly, but hackers tend to target networks with default SSIDs because they assume their owners haven’t put much thought into Wi-Fi security.

    4. After changing your administrator passwords, make your next step changing the name of your home network. nike air max 2017 dames Blauw You may also want to disable “SSID broadcasting,” which broadcasts the presence of your network to the surrounding area.

    5. Turn on the highest possible WPA encryption: When configuring your network, you will be able to choose from several levels of encryption to scramble the information (like credit card numbers) you exchange online.
    6. air max 2017 donna
    7. The most powerful of these options is preferable, but different devices can only handle certain levels of encryption.

    8. NIKE AIR PEGASUS 92-16
    9. Consult the manual of the devices like smart phones and computers you plan to use on your home network, and select the highest level of encryption they can all accept.

    10. Keep your firewalls on: All modern wireless routers feature built-in firewall technology, as well as the ability to disable it. Nike Air Max 2016 Dames grijs Double-check to make sure your router’s firewall is on after you configure your network, and consider installing additional firewall software on your home computers.
    11. Position your router as close to the center of your home as possible: Wi-Fi signals broadcast threw windows and walls, allowing them to be picked up by people with wireless devices in the street.

    Choosing between Hardwired or Wireless Security Systems

    There is a wide range of home security systems available to meet different needs and price ranges. And one of the first questions to be answered when researching is whether to buy wireless or hardwired. Following are some considerations that may help.

    Ease of installation

    For existing buildings, a wireless security system offers the easiest installation process, and tool requirements are minimal. With a wire stripper, a screwdriver, and the ability to follow simple instructions, the average homeowner can have a complete system up and running in no time.

    A hardwired alarm system, on the other hand, requires wire to be laid out and connected from the control panel to each sensor.

  • Keeping the wire hidden may require reconstruction by digging through the walls or burying the wire in the ground or floor. However, if the building is under construction and the system is being installed as the building is going up, the hardwired alarm system may be the way to go.


    The issue of reliability is often debated and commonly misunderstood with regard to wireless and hardwired technology. cheap fjallraven kanken uk For example, some people fear the possibility of signal interference with a wireless alarm system. chaussures air max pas cher But, unlike older technology, today’s high quality systems use unique radio signals that avoid this problem. Additionally, a wireless system’s control panel checks the sensor signals regularly to be sure they are functioning properly.

    Similarly, sensor battery life is also a common concern.

  • nike free run 5 0 nero uomo
  • No one wants the inconvenience or cost of replacing batteries on a regular basis, which is why the lithium batteries that are now available are made to last seven to ten years.

    Cost and Features

    Can you expect to pay less for wireless technology than for hardwired? It really depends on the application.

  • If the ability to dial a private number is a priority, a wireless system will typically provide that, while a hardwired system would require an auto dialer to be added on.

    Distance between the main panel and the sensors is also an important consideration.

  • Nike Air Max 2015 Uomo
  • A hardwired system, depending on the wire and strength of the amperage, may extend up to 1000 feet, while a wireless system would require additional repeaters to cover that much distance.

    Making the Choice

    Ultimately, an evaluation of a homeowner’s particular needs is what will determine which type of technology is most appropriate. Nike Air Max 2017 Heren Whatever your needs, be assured that LiveWatch can offer you a complete solution.
