The days of alarms and floodlights being the only choice for home security are behind us with the growing availability of more intelligent and flexible options, such as smart cameras. Placed outside or within the home, these internet-connected cameras offer a live view of what’s happening from practically anywhere, send alerts when they detect motion – and some can even recognise friend from foe. They promise full control and piece of mind through your smartphone, tablet or smart display. If something suspicious is happening, you can fire off an alarm, alert the police or even shout at the intruder straight through the camera, all while recording their every move. Ring Floodlight Cam £249 The Ring Floodlight Cam combines, as the name might suggest, two articulated LED floodlights and a camera in one device, which make it perfect for replacement of traditional security lights in the back garden. Larger and more capable than its battery-driven siblings, the Floodlight … [Read more...] about Intruder alert! The best smart home security cameras

Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich once told me that he doesn’t believe in windows. Windows of contention for a big-league baseball team, that is. While that might be true for big-spending, perennial contenders like the Dodgers, Yankees and Red Sox, I don’t think it holds true for the Rockies, a team that has never won a division title in its 27 years. For the Rockies, windows open and slam shut quickly. Last season, tied to this season, provides the perfect example. Last year, the Rockies won 91 games, took the Dodgers to Game 163 and beat the Cubs in the wild-card playoff game before being dominated by the Brewers, who swept them in the National League Division Series. This year, a 3-12 start, terrible pitching and a slew of injuries in the second half doomed Colorado. A 95-loss season looks likely.A number of players have told me that they thought the front office and owner Dick Monfort blew it by not making bold moves at last year’s trade deadline. To … [Read more...] about Saunders: Rockies’ window to compete has slammed shut, so when will it open?

Amazon’s new Ring Alarm smartens up the traditional home security system without radically changing how it works, combining the best of both worlds into a DIY-friendly wireless alarm arrangement that just works. It’s been a 16-month wait in the UK since the Ring Alarm line of products launched in the US in July 2018, but it has been worth it. The Ring Alarm takes the “if it ain’t broke” approach to a smart alarm system. Take a traditional alarm system, make it wireless and inject a bit of smart into it without trying to do too much and making it over-complicated. The system comes in a kit with one contact sensor, one motion detector, a keypad, a range extender and the base station, which connects to your home wifi and contains a very loud siren. It’s enough to get you started, but if you have more than one entry door or ground-floor windows, you will probably need at least one more contact sensor or motion detector. Installation The Ring Alarm is a … [Read more...] about Ring Alarm review: Amazon’s smart security upgrade
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Nigel Youngberg was in the upstairs bathroom for seven hours straight the weekend he went missing. A late-night shower always made him feel better. His mother thought of it like the hug machine invented by Temple Grandin to soothe herself when autism made life too stressful. Nigel would hug himself with the warm water when his schizophrenia became too painful. But this was an unusually long shower, reported the Idaho Statesman (http://bit.ly/2c90gbE). Nigel’s father, Mark Youngberg, woke at 9 a.m. that Saturday to find water coming through the kitchen ceiling. The deluge stopped when Mark turned off the water to the whole house. By then, Nigel had barricaded himself in the bathroom. He left the water running because — he later told his mother — he thought it would clean up the germs. He could tell his parents were upset about the water, so he hid in the bathroom. Then he ran. He climbed out the window and grabbed a bicycle with two flat tires … [Read more...] about Family of man who died in psychosis couldn’t get any help
Ex-Telstra technician and confessed rapist Bradley Robert Edwards, 51, is on trial in the Western Australia Supreme Court accused of murdering Sarah Spiers, 18, Ms Rimmer, 23, and Ciara Glennon, 27, in 1996 and 1997. Kenneth Mitchell, 75, said he and his wife went to bed at their home in the semi-rural Perth suburb of Wellard on June 8, 1996 just before midnight but were awoken by woman's voice through their open window. "We would only have been asleep for a short time and I was awoken by, I wouldn't call it squealing, but certainly a very high-pitched and traumatic voice of a woman," he testified on Thursday. Mr Mitchell said he heard her shout words to the effect of: "Leave me alone! Let me out of here!" "It was very plain, very clear and very traumatic," he said. Mr Mitchell said he got out of bed very quickly and it appeared the voice came from nearby scrubland. Then everything went "dead" silent, which he described as frightening. He also saw the reflection of lights and heard the … [Read more...] about Traumatic voice night of Claremont killing
