USING AN ALARM.COM IMAGE SENSOR LIKE A BABY MONITOR

Ever since our fourth child was born our two-year-old has had a difficult time going to bed at night. Sometimes she’ll come into the living room and tell us things like “I need a drink” or “I’m not tired.” Of course when she says this she’s rubbing her eyes and yawning. We started making deals with her. To get her to stay in bed, like “go to sleep and you can hold the baby tomorrow.”  She must be incredibly intelligent, because she’s now figured out that any time she comes to us after getting out of bed, we’ll just pick her up and put her right back under her covers.Continue reading

ENERGY SAVINGS USING THE IQ SMART SOCKET

Our family has a room in my basement we’ve made into a modest home theater.  Its just a TV mounted on a wall and an inexpensive surround sound system, but its a great place for the kids to play video games or for the family to watch a movie together.  Being down in the basement it can get chilly,especially in the winter, so we have a space heater we purchased from Costco in the corner of the room.  Having the room heated that way has always worried us a little, since space heaters are notorious for causing fires.  To keep our home safe I’ve gotten in the habit of making a trip all the way downstairs to make sure the heater is off before we leave the house.Continue reading
