Inspection time. – [Upgraded Version] Ragu Directs’ Distianert Endoscope 8.5MM 2.0 Megapixel 2 In 1 Smartphone + USB



My husband and older son are commercial electricians, and carpenters. They work in really tight spaces sometimes, and when they go into an existing build and have to trouble shoot problems, an endoscope really helps them out. They already have and use one, so we are not new to them. We were happy to see this upgraded version. We already have one that we use via our Android phones and one that you need your computer on deck, to use it. This one has upped the game with technology, at an affordable price. We have Samsung phones: Edge 6 and Note 5, in our homes. This unit just plugs and plays via the camera. You need to flip up half of the USB port, to turn it into the micro USB end. Then attach it to your phone, and open up your camera. You have to agree to it, and then you are in. Then just follow the icons to snap photos or take videos. That is literally all you have to do. Your chosen decide you plug it into, is what powers it. As soon as you plug it in, the 6 LEDs turn on. They are very bright. Now, even though it is highly usable without the app on my phone, I went ahead and scanned the QR code in the instructional booklet, after using it both on my phone and laptop. So, it isn’t necessary, if you have limited space on your phone. The app is called UsbCamera, and it is free. You can’t even look at the app without the camera not being plugged in either. Then, you still have to allow your phone to use the camera for the USB. So, there really is no difference on my Note 5. This endoscope comes with drawstring storage bag, head attachments, an instruction booklet, and a mini CD. Now, I have a newer laptop with Windows 10 on it. I never install via a disc, unless I have too. So, I always try things straight forward, and then try the items it comes with, to really test out a product. It literally plugged into my laptop, and automatically installed its’ drivers. I never had to load the mini disc. This unit is 13ft long, and the head diameter is 8.5mm. It comes with a mirror, hook, and magnet attachments. They are simple attachments, and the magnet keeps coming loose on me. It is waterproof. So no worries about looking into clogged drains and toilets. Now. I did delete the app off of my phone shortly after install. With use, it stopped working well with the endoscope for me. It works better as plug and play on my phone. I was not able to separately control my LEDs, in regards to their brightness levels. That didn’t matter to me. They are bright, and when you shove it into places, it’s normally dark where you’re using it. The images aren’t as clear as my regular camera, or laptop camera is, but the images are still legible. These are the resolution specs from their site: “1600*1200 & 2.0 Megapixel.” You can tell it’s a 2megapixel camera. But, since this can send you a clear enough image to diagnose with, it’s all we need. It has been working well for us. We love the plug and play simplicity with the phone. It is so much more convenient for my guys this way. And it fits into any tool bag, as well.

Time to play Superspy! – Teton Webstores’ RecorderGear PC550 1080P Wide Angle Portable WiFi Body Worn Camera.


(The video was taken on our trip to McDonalds. No one noticed that I was wearing it either.)

It’s fun to play super spy when you have reliable equipment. I have reviewed other wearable spy gadgets, and a lot of them fall flat with ease of use, and quality of recording. This particular camera from Recordergear is holding up pretty well. It comes with a free app to download, so it can be used in multiple ways. I have only tested the app out of Android devices. It is available for IOS too, though. The app is called FinalCam, and it’s free to install. C11 is the camera name, and the default password is 12345678. It linked up with our cameras right away. Only one person can be connected at a time to the camera using the app. My husband and I both tried being logged into it, and it said NO, lol. The camera has its own Wi-Fi. So, when you want to link up to it, turn the camera on first, and then hit the Wi-Fi button and make sure you opened your app on your phone or tablet. Your phone will then connect with the camera, and you will be able to view what your camera is viewing. You will need to press the arrow button when you open the app, to activate the connection process. The picture is pretty clear. This will also depend on the quality of your camera or tablet too. From the app you can record, take pictures, adjust the volume, or turn it off. You can adjust the light as well. There are 4 buttons on the camera itself. One side there is a power button and the light button, for nighttime, or dark room, filming. On the other side is the Wi-Fi button and the mode button. This camera can be fully operated without the app. That’s definitely better for wearing it as a body cam, and being more super spy like, lol. Here is a quick break down how to operate it from the buttons:

-Press and hold to turn it on and off. It comes on with the Blue light. You can cycle through the modes with the mode button.

Blue means record

Red means photo mode

Green means only Audio record mode

Red/Blue Combo means Motion activated video mode

Pick the color you want, and then short press the power button to activate the mode. The light will flash about 5 times, and then go into your chosen mode. It’s pretty simple, and can be done on the sly, once you get familiar with the camera button locations. You need to press the light button to activate the nighttime viewing mode. You need to supply your own micro SD card for this camera. When you buy one, make sure it is at least a class 10, or the video will not be worth our while. Now, if you have Windows 8, you will need to download the VLC video player program. It’s free, or it was when I downloaded it onto my old laptop, which is now my husband’s laptop. Otherwise you can only see the video and not hear any audio. With playing the video through VLC, you are good to go. I have Windows 10, and it plays the video and audio perfectly. I normally don’t wear shirts with chest pockets. That would be the perfect place to wear a bodycam. I place it on my belt, and filmed from the hip when I used it. I notice in the video, with many lighting variations, it will darken a little. But, my expensive camera, does that too, so, not a surprise. I swear, cameras do not know what to do with sunlight and LED lighting. It makes the lens darken somewhat, for some reason. It films for approx.. 10 minutes, and then restarts another video on its own. There seems to be an unnoticeable gap really between threads. With this camera you will get 1 charging cable, 1 hdmi cable, 1 microfiber cleaning cloth, 1 camera and instruction pamphlet. When you plug the camera into your computer, it will automatically download the drivers for it. Overall, it’s a very easy camera to operate. I think it’s fun, and user friendly. I like the sound and picture quality for a body cam. It really is the best I have personally used to date.

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


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.

The clearest portable projector! – iProjector’s Syhonic S70GP 1080P Full HD LCD LED Mini Portable Multimedia Home Theater Projector.


Projectors are a lot of fun. My husband is like a kid in a candy store when I mention the word projector. He just loves them. So, I am obviously not new to projectors. They are a fun addition to any family. I was really excited to be able to try this one from Syhonic. It’s a really nice projector, and so easy to operate. Instructions are included with this unit, and it’s only a fold out pamphlet. But, it really isn’t needed. The chart that lets you know what some of the buttons on the remote are for, is pretty handy though. Directions aren’t really needed because the menu screen on the projector is very clear to navigate through. That alone equals love to me, lol. You can be brand new to operating a projector, and be fine using this one.

Syhonic 1

This projector comes with: 1 lens cap, 1 HDMI cord, 1 Power Cable, 1 instruction pamphlet, One 3-in 1 AV Cable, and 1 Remote Control. The controller needs 2 AAA batteries to operate, and they are not included. No worries, you can operate the projector just as easily without the remote. The operational buttons are all located on top of the projector. The headphone port and SD card slot are on the side of the projector. The 2 HDMI ports, 1 USB port, 1 AV port, 1 VGA port, and 1 TV input port (RF connection) are on the back of the projector. The IR for the remote is also located on the left side of the back of the projector. There is a dial to tune in your focus on the top of the projector, as well. Underneath the projector you will find 1 leveling leg. Just unscrew it until you reach the height it needs.

The remote is so easy to use as well. Make sure you are aiming towards the IR on the back of the projector, though. You can turn it on and off, and run through all the functions with the remote. The menu button is actually clearly labeled on the remote as well. Once you turn on your projector, press the menu button. You will see the choices clearly labeled for you. I love this. Once you pick your category, just follow through the menu options. It’s that simple. It amazes me that there is even a TV tuner with this projector. You will need to connect it to a digital antenna though to pick up a channel. This unit can operate in 12 different Country languages. The remote, however, has English printed on some of the buttons. The size of the projector is great. It measured out at 7 ¾” long, 3 ¼” thick, and 6 ¼” deep, for me. We like to play movies through our. That is mostly what we use projectors for, that nd pictures. You can plug right into your computer to play them, use a USB stick, or a micro SD or SD card, to do so. If you use a micro SD card, you need to use a SD card adapter to do so. That is what we have been doing. It did not like one of our generic SD card adapters. It wouldn’t allow the volume to come through. It did however, work perfectly with other adapters of ours. When you use the SD card, you have to slide it in upside. I found that so funny. It won’t even begin to fit in the other way either. The volume isn’t the loudest on this projector. Is it loud enough to hear, yes. It might not be if you are outside, or have noisy children though. No worries, you can hook it up to an external speaker for added listening power, if needed. We did not need to in home. I cannot get over the picture on this thing. It is clear, and it is bright. This projector boasts 1200 lumens and you can tell. We have had projectors that did not have that many lumens, and you couldn’t get a big enough picture with it, for good viewing. This is a 1080P Full HD projector. The picture is large and it is crystal clear. You will absolutely love it, we sure do!

As an example on how easy this projector is to operate, I will write out the steps:

1.       Power on, and then press the Menu button.

2.       Press the arrow button until the Movie Section is highlighted, then press the OK button.

Syhonic 4

3.       Now you will see a section named C, press the OK button.

4.       Now, scroll to your desired movie, and press the OK button.

5.       It will then start loading, and will go onto play your movie.

That is how simple it is to do any of the actions. I love how you can attach this to so many devices. You pretty have any venue at your fingertips with this projector. As a media projector, this is wonderful, absolutely wonderful.
