Light and Sound from LightingEver

Standard

LightingEver Lamp and Speaker 5

LED lighting and Bluetooth speakers are everyday items in our household. Bluetooth speakers are great for home, work, vacationing, poolside, and more. There is also always a need for a backup lighting source, be it for emergencies, camping, vacationing, work, and convenience. This product from LightingEver fits the bill for both. Not only is it a convenient source of light, it also has fun lighting options, and a built-in Bluetooth speaker. It has an internal 2200mAH battery, which allows for many hours of both music and light. It can go all day on low, for lighting alone. This light is so usable. It can be placed on the table, or hung with it’s built in hanger. It comes with both an Aux cable, and a micro USB cable. Don’t forget to pull the plastic off of the silicone ring on the bottom of the speaker. It really helps to keep the speaker/light in one spot on your table.

This product is very easy to use. My husband and I both have Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phones. It comes up as LE Lights01 to pair, no code needed. It states paired, so there is no guessing with this speaker. You can use both separate from each other. You do not have to use both the light and speaker together. You tap the center of the light to make it turn on, and to go through the colors. The last choice before off, is a beat to the music mode, which is pretty cool to watch. It’s very disco that way. You can even use this to answer calls.

There are 6 different colors to choose from: red, blue, green, purple, light blue, then the disco mode. Tap and hold the center area, to go to the white color mode. It comes on in low, tap again to go to medium, and again to go to high. The fourth tap has the white light in flashing/beat mode, and the 5th tap is off, for the light. You can just listen to music, audio books, videos, or anything you want via the Bluetooth speaker.  The sound and volume are pretty nice on this speaker. All types of music have been pretty clear, and enjoyable to listen to. The controls are on one side of the light, and the ports are on the opposite side of the speaker. You can listen to music, etc.. via an Aux cable, Bluetooth, or Micro SD card. You need to supply the micro SD card. This unit charges via the included micro USB cable. The Aux cable is also included. It does hold a pretty good charge with it’s 2200mAh internal battery, but can be used while plugged in. I like that feature. Not all Bluetooth speakers can be used while plugged in, I have found. I love the hanger option. You can hang it from your hood while working on your car. You can hang it in your tent for lighting, or from your umbrella at the beach, or backyard patio. It does not get hot to the touch, so it’s safe for your children to use.

Overall, this is a fun, and very usable light/speaker. It has so many benefits, and can be used in many different ways. I have found it to be well made and durable. I, as usual, have dropped it quite a few times, lol. So, if you are slightly clumsy like me, you should be good with this product. It is a fun product to use.

Security time. – Tsing Sricam SP009 P2P Wireless Wifi IP Camera Monitor with HD 720P.

Standard

I love security cameras. After getting my first one, I was hooked. It is such a simple way to stay connected while you are away, as well as to ensure the safety of your family and home. This is a quick set up styled camera. I was plugged in and synced up within my phone in under 5 minutes. I mean, wow, that is always awesome. I already have a QR scanner app in my phone, so I was able to scan the barcode for the Android immediately, and then downloaded the Sricam App for free. The instruction pamphlet is actually very easy to follow. Then plug the camera in, and follow the instructions in the book. You’ll register yourself, and the camera through the app, and get to modify your password after hooked up. Once connected, you can play with the settings. Click the settings icon, and then turn on the motion detector. If you turn on the buzzer alarm, and enforce alarm, when there is movement where the camera is positioned, the alarm rings through that room, lol. I scared my son to death. Poor thing was screaming, “TURN IT OFF”. You can capture pictures through your camera. To capture video, you need to make sure you have your own micro SD card. It slips into the slot on the side of the camera. The buttons are on the view screen of your phone or tablet. There is also a speaker button on the view screen. When you press this you can talk through the security camera. You can always hear through the app what going on, unless you forget to turn the media volume on. I did that, lol. You can actually have conversations with family when out of town that way. The video has an approx. 4-5 second delay, which isn’t too bad. The video is pretty clear. Even in the dark, the video is pretty clear. I am very, very pleased. It’s not grainy at all. I do have Samsung products, and have great resolution too, though. One negative is that even though the camera is positional in the vertical manner, the camera itself doesn’t have a tight fit, and tends to slip downward if not positioned just right. You can easily find your position, and use some hot glue, that could be removed, or tape, to keep it in place. The do include hardware so you can mount it. One feature that I like, is that you can mount it with the camera all the way down, so it looks upside down. On your app, you can change the camera view by pressing the triangle icon on the view screen. They do not go over all the operations in the set up pamphlet, but they do give you a website to check out in the pamphlet, as well as a customer service to call. The operations are so easy to figure out yourself though, and the camera is very forgiving, lol.

You too can possess the AllSpark. – Hami’s AllSpark Bluetooth Speaker.

Standard

I honestly immediately think of The Transformers, when it comes to this speaker. I mean really, the AllSpark. The hunt for the AllSpark is over. You can buy it on Amazon now, lol. This is a great little speaker. It’s perfect bedside, desk side, and the like. It has fun LED lights that move throughout it. The LED colors are red, green, and blue, interchanging. When you first turn the speaker on, it talks to you in a Transformer like, voice. It’s too much fun, I love it!!!!!!

It paired immediately with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phone. It comes up as Qone2 to pair, and no code is required to pair. The lights flash to the beat of the music as well. It sounds pretty good for a small 3W speaker. The music is pretty clear. You can play music through a 3.5m Aux cable, micro SD card, or Bluetooth. They include an Aux cable, but you need to supply your own micro SD card. This AllSpark is only 2.4” squared. There are buttons on the cube to move the music forward or back. It’s a short press to change the music, and a long press to change the volume. There is also a pause/play button, which is also the button to accept a call. Which it does quite well. It has Bluetooth 3.0 technology in it, so even if you have an older phone, it should work well with it. It is compatible with both IOS and Android as well. It’s pretty clear overall when playing. It has some areas where it may sound a little raspier. But, it is a lot clearer sounding than other 3W speakers I have tested. I love the added fun of the lights. Since they are just run through the lines of the AllSpark, they add enough fun, without being over bearing. You can get up to 10M away from the cube without dropping your signal, but that needs to be same room. It will end up dropping the signal if you go behind walls, or around the corner. You can even get around 5 hours of playtime on a full battery charge. If you play your music loud, you may get less battery time. I really like this speaker. Besides being so fun, it affords the ability to play your music and audio books with ease.

A stand out Bluetooth Speaker! – Apie’s Classic Sound Cannon Portable Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Speaker.

Standard

Here’s another wonderful Apie speaker. Since my family goes through speakers, I am happy to see more from them. I really like the other one I just reviewed. Their quality is pretty darn good. Aesthetically, it’s quite sporty too. The added built in handle attachment, makes it perfect to grab and go. The handle is actually integral to the unit. The controls are on it. Bluetooth speakers are great, because they can go anywhere with you, as long as you remember to charge it up. My older son also uses one all of the time in his van. He is a commercial electrician, and has a new van. It has a stock radio, with no ports. He doesn’t even have a 12V outlet. So, he listens to audio books a lot on a Bluetooth speaker. It needs to be small, but loud. This one fits the bill. It only measures at approx.. 9 1/2 inches long by 2 ¾” deep and 5 ½” tall. So, it is highly portable. It is also a 10W speaker, so it can get pretty loud. It has 2 5W drivers. It also has what they call, 3D sound technology in it. This speaker has Bluetooth v3.0 plus EDR technology in it, so if you have an older phone, it should work with it also. This is a very user friendly speaker as well. It has separate buttons for pretty much everything, as well as so many functions. On the back of this speaker you will find your aux port, USB in port, micro USB in port, on/off switch, and micro SD card slot. On the top of the handle you will find a pause/phone button, mode button, fast forward and rewind buttons, as well as volume up and volume down buttons. With the mode button you can choose between Bluetooth, micro SD, FM radio, and Aux in. There are blue LED letters that shows you your selection, as well as the radio stations as you scroll through them. Under the handle there are also blue LEDs, that illuminate the space between the handle and the speaker; so cool. This speaker talks to you in regards to saying where you are: Bluetooth, Bluetooth Disconnected, Radio, and the like. It does not state the telephone call coming in, it rings. It does have a mic, so you can accept calls through the speaker as well. The music quality on this speaker is great. It is loud and clear. It doesn’t matter what I play, be it Italian music to rap, to country, I enjoyed it all. The bass and instrumental are clear, and pretty steady. You can get the typical 10 meters away from the speaker, but it needs to be in room. If you go around corners, or behind walls, the signal will drop. The internal battery is large since it can go for about 10 hours. I could not find the stated battery size anywhere though. The louder you play the music, the less battery time. Also, the louder the music, the clarity is down a little, especially in areas where’s there’s a lot of drumming and cymbals. I find that very normal with Bluetooth speakers, and this is better than a lot of them. It pairs and plays immediately. It comes up as DY25L to pair, and no code is needed. It’s a great overall speaker, especially at its size, and it’s being 10W.
