SuperNannyCam on GulfNews Xpress

Working couples increasingly turning to technology to keep watch over domestic help


    It’s just a tool to ensure that that our homes and our children are safe at all times, says Fady Bran, Managing Director of Maxcom Technologies in Dubai.

Dubai: Residents in the UAE are increasingly turning to nanny cameras to keep tabs on their homes, domestic help and children, a surveillance camera company has reported.

"2011 was the year of the Super Nanny Cam. We sold over 1,000 pieces to around 300 families," said Fady Bran, Managing Director of Maxcom Technologies in Dubai.

He said the demand was high among Europeans, followed by Indians. "Working parents in particular want to know what goes on inside their homes when they are out at work or are travelling."

Easy does it

He said unlike analog CCTV surveillance cameras, the Super Nanny Cam is an Internet Protocol, digital video camera and can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet. It's wireless, easy to install and detects any motion within a range of 10 metres. It's mobile phone-enabled and sends e-mail alerts.

Bran claimed that the Super nanny camera is discreet and not hidden unlike other nanny cameras which are typically hidden in the belly button of a teddy bear.

Asked about the ethics behind installing such cameras, he said it should be done in the full knowledge of those being covered. "There is no question of invading privacy or intimidating anyone. It's just a tool to ensure that our homes and our children are safe at all times. It's about the general observation of our homes."

He said although most families install the cameras to keep an eye on nannies, there are several other uses as well. They use them to monitor valuables, pets, observe the playing behaviour of kids, make sure they do their homework and stay out of trouble. "Imagine being able to get an alert if your child falls off the bed."

Capturing intruders

Residents also use these cameras when they travel abroad as they can be easily installed and can capture intruders and e-mail their movement.

Although the average demand for cameras is three per home - usually at the main entrance, in the kids' room and the living room, there are residents who install cameras in every room, including the kitchen, he said.

"We also have an outdoor version which villa owners install in garages and outside their homes to keep track of any suspicious movement," Bran added.

He said the cost of installing one camera comes up to Dh2,000, including the device

Do you shutdown your computer regularly or leave it on all the time? 

Full Article [Lifehacker.com]

The idea that it's harmful to shut your computer down every night is a myth. Unless you shut it down incorrectly (e.g. ripping out the power cable and laughing maniacally), there's really nothing to worry about. In fact, shutting down your computer every night offers a few advantages. First and foremost, it won't draw as much power when off. Additionally, you don't have to remember to turn off the sound each night so it doesn't wake you up with an unexpected alert. That said, keeping your computer powered on overnight has advantages as well. An always-running computer can act as a server and handle tasks while you're sleeping. Whether you shut down regularly or keep your computer running indefinitely really depends on your needs. Let's take a deeper look at the pros and cons of both options and how you can deal with the downsides.

Shutting Down Regularly

Shutting down regularly is the practical option, but it's not without its downsides. Let's take a look at the pros, cons, and what you can do to remedy the disadvantages.

Pros

  • Lower energy costs - Computers can draw a large amount of power, especially if you're running a high-end desktop. Shutting your machine down when it isn't in use will prevent excessive and unnecessary use of power, wasting less energy and saving you money on your electric bill.
  • Fewer temporary system issues - Those who keep their machines booted up indefinitely are familiar with the little problems that crop up when a computer is in use for a long time. Strange little problems occur and they're often solved by a reboot. If you're essentially rebooting every day, you're giving your machine a fresh start. This helps avoid minor system issues.
  • Quiet hours - When your machine is running, it's capable of making noise. The sounds of the fans can be bothersome if you're sleeping in the same room, but you also run the risk of the computer playing and alert or other sound unexpectedly. This is easily rectified by muting your sound every night, but you run the risk of forgetting. (Of course, you can automate that process on Windows and OS X pretty easily.)
  • A longer-lasting machine - While you can never really know when your computer is going to fail, less stress placed on its components will contribute to a longer life. You still have to keep it clean, dust-free, and well-maintained, but less activity can help your hardware last longer.

Cons

  • Inconvenience - The biggest disadvantage of shutting down and booting up on a daily cycle is that it's inconvenient. You have to get everything in order to shut down each night and wait to start up in the morning. On top of that, if you forget to boot up and need to access your machine while you're, say, at the office, you won't be able to because it's offline. This problem is easily solved by automated the shut down and start up process. Doing so puts your computer on a schedule so you won't have much of an inconvenience at all.
  • Energy used for nothing - While you certainly save energy by shutting down your machine, it'll still draw power when off. While an operating desktop would draw a lot more, it would, at least, be capable of doing something while you're away. This problem is easily remedied, however, with a power-regulating socket like the Belkin Conserve ($10). Alternatively, if your desktop supports it, you can use it as a USB device charger overnight so that small power draw isn't going to waste.
  • You can just hibernate instead - Why shut down when you can hibernate? Hibernation draws about as much power and saves the current working state of your machine so you can resume right where you left off. This is a standard operation for Windows machines, but OS X can use it, too. Apple calls hibernation "Safe Sleep," and it's only regularly employed to laptops when the battery levels are critically low. You can enable this feature at will, however, with apps like SafeSleep and SmartSleep. You can also save power by simply sleeping your computer, which has the advantage of waking up faster (although if you're using an SSD that gain is negligible), but the power consumption is considerably higher. To get a specific idea of how your devices consume power in their various modes, check out this comparison table.

As you can see, each option has its advantages and disadvantages. What works best for you will depend on your needs.

Why Is Wi-Fi Coverage So Bad in My House, and How Can I Fix It?

Full Article (Lifehacker.com)

Adam Dachis touched on a few ways to extend your wireless signal in his guide to going completely wireless in your home, but we'll get a bit more substantive in dealing with Wi-Fi killers in trying to help out a laptop warrior tied to such a small area.

Let's look at some of the common Wi-Fi killers, and how to best them.

Home Construction and Other Obstructions

The way your home is built has likely the most direct impact on how far Wi-Fi can penetrate the house. The vast majority of homes were built before the concepts of cellphones, 3G service, and Wi-Fi were discussed outside of Nikola Tesla reading groups.

Steel structures, concrete, the layout of air-conditioning vents and returns in homes with centralized systems, aquariums, and the spot where your dog chooses to nap can all make an impact on your Wi-Fi coverage. One big signal killer could also be lurking in your walls, especially if your house dates back more than 60 years: chicken wire. Seriously.

As the Wall Street Journal explains, many homes with plaster and lath walls were held up by wood wrapped in chicken wire. When modern homeowners try to live the wireless life, they find terrible Wi-Fi coverage, because the wire is spaced in just such a way to create a perfect shield against Wi-Fi frequencies (sometimes called a Faraday cage). Image via Nanimo.

You can move your aquariums and re-position your router to provide better, more centralized coverage—more on that down below. But you're likely not going to gut your walls to fix your wireless, so let's eliminate other potential culprits. Continue reading...
