Sonos Beam – Compact Smart TV Soundbar with Amazon Alexa : Review

Sometimes, Listening to your favorite music collection anywhere in your home used to involve overcoming some issues. You’d either need to move your music system from room to room or you need to move to another room, setup wires and cables trailing under doors and rugs and up the stairs, or you could spend a fortune on a custom-install system. But with the help of Sonos beam, You can now stream your music from a range of devices like smartphone, laptop, NAS drive to multiple speakers around the home using a wireless connection.

The Sonos Beam is a powerful speaker for its size. This isn’t simply a soundbar. It’s a wireless, multi-room speaker that can play music from almost any source. Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Deezer, your phone, network-connected hard drives – it’s all supported and all can be combined in on-the-fly playlists and queues. The Beam can be part of a Sonos multi-room audio system, but if you’d prefer to mix it with Apple AirPlay 2 components, Sonos will accommodate your desire on that score, too.

The Beam comes in black or white color, and it’s a remarkably compact thing — just a little over 2 feet long, 2.7 inches tall, and 3.94 inches deep.

Installation:

Around the back of the Beam sits a port that no other Sonos product has ever featured: HDMI. But it’s not part of a pass-through system that you see on most other soundbars; Sonos’s only interest in HDMI is what it lets the Beam do with voice commands.

Setting up the Beam is straightforward:

  • You plug it into power and the HDMI ARC port on your TV
  • Then open the Sonos app on your phone to connect it to your WiFi.

If you don’t have HDMI ARC on your TV, you can use the included optical adapter to get digital audio out of your TV’s optical-out port. Setting up the volume this way is a little more convoluted: you’ll have to manually disable your TV’s speakers, and then use the Sonos app to program the Beam to recognize your TV remote’s IR commands.

Introduction:

Based in California, Sonos was founded in 2002 with one simple aim to transform your home sound system for the digital one. Its products and software are designed to ready every room of your home with music, and the flexibility and functionality of its products have made the company a household name.

The Sonos Controller app (available on Android and iOS) will walk you through the set-up, but it requires little more than pressing the speaker’s sync button (to link them to your network and other Sonos speakers), finding the connected speaker on the app and entering details such as your wi-fi password.

It’s really that easy and smooth, simple-to-use Controller app makes everyday use even easier.

In the app, you can assign each speaker to a room of your house, programme it so the volume can be controlled via your TV’s standard remote, and add your favorite streaming services. The app recognizes which speaker you’re using, and in which room you’re using it.

Features:

  • Listen to music, TV, movies, podcasts, radio, audiobooks and video games. Experience rich, detailed sound that fills the entire room. Thoughtfully designed for your home. Place on your TV stand or wall mount.
  • Ask Alexa to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn and SiriusXM. Listen to hundreds of other streaming services with the Sonos app.
  • Add the latest Alexa-enabled video streaming device such as Fire TV for remote-free control. Find, start and manage shows and movies just by asking.
  • With software updates, your listening experience is always improving. Set-up is quick and easy. Download the Sonos app, connect Beam to power and your TV, then follow the app instructions.
  • Connect Sonos speakers wirelessly to create a home sound system. Create a home theater system with a pair of rear speakers and a Sub. Play sound from your Apple devices to Sonos with AirPlay, and Ask Siri to play music all over your home.

More:

Controlling music with your voice is now almost commonplace. For this, thanks to smart devices like the Amazon Echo, Google Home, Apple HomePod, and of course the Sonos One. You can talk to the Beam from anywhere in the room, and you don’t need a physical remote to trigger it. The Beam also supports follow-up mode for back-to-back demands.

FAQ:

What audio content can I play on Sonos Beam?

Sonos Beam plays back all of your TV audio, once setup with the Sonos app is complete. You can stream audio from TV, movies, video on demand, music, radio, video games, audiobooks, and podcast.

What does Sonos Beam sound like?

Sonos Beam has surprising sound for its size. Its soundstages are full, spacious and wider than the speaker itself, creating an immersive listening experience. Dialogue is clear. There’s adequate bass performance to enrich most listening experiences.

How does Sonos Beam differ from Playbar and Playbase?

Sonos Beam is a more compact speaker and can fit almost anywhere. Playbar and Playbase produce a louder sound with more width and bass. Beam is optimized for small to mid-sized rooms, whereas Playbar and Playbase are capable of filling large spaces.

How does Sonos Beam work with Amazon Alexa?

Sonos Beam supports most voice commands with Amazon Alexa. These include commands to start music and content with Spotify, TuneIn and Audible; commands to control other services started with the Sonos app, plus requests for popular Alexa features.

Does Beam pair with other Sonos speakers for surround sound?

Yes. While Sonos Beam is a great soundbar on its own, it also wirelessly pairs with our Sub for added bass and a pair of Play:1 speaker for full surround sound. A setup with left and right rears and a sub gives you true 5.1 surround sound.

Final thoughts:

The Sonos Beam has a lot going for it. At the top of the list, there’s Alexa, which brings smart-speaker functions into your living room. It delivers wide and fair sound overall, and you can also adjust the sound to your surroundings in ways that few soundbars allow. The soundbar’s small size can also be a reward, though, in return for the compact form, you give up the booming bass that other Sonos speakers create.

Dyson Pure Cool Air Purifier with Alexa Compatible

Dyson is a brand that known for high-technology products that set out to solve common household problems. Dyson has been always known for making high premium quality products, similar to Apple’s offerings in the smartphone and laptop world. They use even the same design philosophy as the products are clean, minimal and easy to use.

Dyson Pure Cool Air purifiers capture gases, odors, and household fumes. Where, other purifiers can struggle to trap pollutants, releasing them back into the room. But Dyson purifiers work differently. They capture 99.97% of allergens and pollutants as small as 0.3 microns and keep them trapped. Now the question is arises how? Air purifiers use a technique of internal fans to pull the air in your house through a series of filters that eliminate harmful airborne particles like dust, pollen, and bacteria. The air purifier then circulates the filtered air back into the room.

Dyson Pure Cool Air Purifier Features:

  • The only purifying fan to clean a whole room properly
  • Senses: automatically senses & reports air quality levels on LCD display
  • Captures: sealed HEPA and activated carbon filters capture pollutants
  • Up to 350 degrees of oscillation
  • Dual functionality: forward airflow mode and Backward airflow mode

How is it works?

The only purifying fan to clean a whole room properly. We design our purifying fans to go beyond test chamber conditions and focus on real home conditions – this is more than just having an efficient filter.

1. Dyson engineers and research concluded that to clean an entire room properly, you need to sense pollution events automatically; capture ultrafine pollutants, and project cleaner air around the room using Air Multiplier technology. Only the Dyson purifying fan is designed and tested to do all of this.

2. SENSES: Automatically senses & reports air quality levels on LCD display on purifier, including ultrafine particles (PM 2.5), allergens (PM10), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) & Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2).

CAPTURES: Sealed HEPA and activated carbon filters capture pollutants.

PROJECTS: Air Multiplier technology delivers a smooth, yet powerful airflow throughout the whole room. Up to 350 Degree of oscillation.

DUAL FUNCTIONALITY: Forward airflow mode purifies while cooling you as a fan. Backward airflow mode purifies without cooling you. 90% of allergy sufferers surveyed would recommend a Dyson Purifier.

3. Night-time mode monitors and purifies using quiet settings, with a dimmed display.

  • The AHAM AC1-2015 standard sets out how air cleaner manufacturers can define their performance by “the relative reduction of particulate matter suspended in the air in a specified test chamber” – this means their performance is based on cleaning efficiency rates only.
  • Tested to Dyson internal test method TM-003711 in a 290ft2 room and DTM801.
  • Based on a 2017 Dyson survey of self-reported allergy sufferers after use.

Opening the door on the base will unveil VOC and particle sensors which are used to observe particulates and gases. In the auto mode, the purifier will set fan speed based on the info given by those sensors.

The Dyson Link app says the current air condition in my room is ‘Fair‘, that means there are some ultrafine particles including pollen, bacteria and pet dander. There is no other indicating number, so it’s very difficult to tell how bad the air is. However, after turning on the purifier for a couple of days, the engine became idle and the app told me that the air is ‘Good‘. The A symbol on the LED display will turn green when the air quality target is met.

There are two sizes (desk and tower) and two colors available. The difference is that the larger tower (40 inches high) is rated for a larger room size of 450 sq feet while the circular desk unit (24 inches high) is rated for a room up to 350 sq feet. In both sizes, the entire unit can quietly oscillate to try and reach the corners of the room. A small infrared remote controller can help you control the fan speed, oscillation, auto mode and power on/off from across the room.
It can Remotely clean the air in indoor spaces up to 300 square feet with the Wi-Fi integrated Dyson Pure Cool Link Purifier.

Design:

Dyson’s air purifiers look fancy and expensive. The blue and grey model we tested is especially attention-grabbing. There are two variants – Desk and Tower. The Desk model has a smaller circular loop, while the Tower model has an elongated ellipse instead, and is meant to stand on the floor.

There’s a cylindrical base with a mesh through which air is brought in, after which it’s driven through the loop above, and pushed out after being purified.

Voice Compatibility:

It is extremely easy to set up and manage. And though it’s good that the remote is curved and can attach to the top of the Dyson for safekeeping via magnetization, the voice-compatibility is a key functionality. If you’re hot or plagued by allergies, you’re already feeling lethargic. If you forgot the remote anywhere in the house, it’s really useful to be able to control the fan with your voice.

5 best Smart smoke detector for your smart home

Top 5 Best vacuum cleaner you should buy in 2018

Top 5 Best Washing Machines in 2018

Pros

This can be a hands-off device – set it to auto and it will keep your air cleaner. As soon as it detects pollutants in the air, it kicks in and cleans them until the air quality reaches an acceptable level. Then you can watch it clear everything while it shows you either on the app or the panel.

  • Minimal design
  • Easy to use with a remote control or Dyson app
  • Quiet in Auto mode
  • The fan is quite powerful as compared to any other bladeless fan
  • Air quality is improved after 1 day (according to the app)

Cons

  • This isn’t a cheap solution. Aside from the initial outlay, the filters themselves are quite pricey.
  • The airflow is directed to 1 person only

More:

Those filters don’t last forever, though. Dyson says if you run the purifier for 12 hours a day, the filters should last about a year (a little over 4,000 hours total), though many households — especially those that are empty during the day — likely won’t need to run it that much. Filter replacements cost $79.99 ($10 more than the previous model).

For many, the reverse mode will be the only setting they’ll need to adjust from time to time — the new Dyson Pure Cool is definitely designed to be a “set it and forget it” device. Some people buy Dyson primarily for efficacy, while others buy it primarily for its look and/or warranty

What is Amazon Cloud Cam? : Review

The Amazon Cloud Cam is the first branded plug-and-play camera released by the behemoth online retailer. Amazon Cloud Cam keeps eye on your home while you’re away, but it compatible with Alexa. You can tell Alexa to cast your Cloud Cam to your Fire TV, Fire Tablet, Echo Show, or Echo Spot to quickly see what’s happening in another room in your house — perfect for those times when your kids have been a little too quiet in their playroom.

It’s a decent camera overall, and at $120 (cheaper per unit if you buy multipacks) it’s affordable. Amazon’s first home security camera offers great value for the money. Cloud Cam provides a 24-hour video stream, for live viewing at any time, and stores clips when it senses motion in the camera’s field of view. It stores recorded events for up to 24 hours without requiring a subscription. Subscriptions buy you more storage space and you also get the benefit of extra features. It’s pretty convenient to be able to see what’s going on now and clips from the previous day all at once.

Setup is simple, All you need to plug the Cloud Cam into the wall, download the app and follow the pairing instructions. The LED above the camera flashes blue on startup and blue/green in pairing mode. It’s permanently green when the camera is on; there’s no way to turn it off. It has 1080p resolution and a wide 120-degree field of view.

Amazon’s Cloud Cam app, on the other hand, is a lot more basic — in a good way. You’ll see a live view of the camera, with a collection of clips below it.

Another great feature designed to cut down on unnecessary alert notifications is Zones, which let you go into the Amazon Cloud Cam app and highlight areas of the camera’s viewing angle that it doesn’t need to monitor for movement alerts.

Last Words:

Finally, Amazon’s Cloud Cam is a great choice. The 1080p video quality is good, the default 24-hour archive is a nice bonus and the night-vision mode isn’t bad, either. It’s well-built, affordable and has an advanced motion sensor that can separate people from pets. The geofencing feature is a little finicky, and you can’t turn off the camera LED if you want it to be in stealth mode.

Amazon Echo Plus 2nd Generation with built-in hub: Review

Today We are going to discuss about amazon’s upgraded version Echo plus 2nd generation with built-in hub.  Amazon has been already came out with new and different Echo units to meet the needs of its customers. In late 2017, Amazon has been released the Echo Plus 1st generation, which made controlling your smart home easier.It’s powered by Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant, and has a built-in Zigabee smart home hub and so it can talk to smart home sensors.. And, On October 11, 2018, Amazon is going to release the Echo Plus 2nd generation. The upgraded version Echo Plus sports an added temperature sensor, localized voice controls and setup assistance that could make the Amazon Echo Plus an ideal smart home control center.

To define the best things of the Plus 2 we need to compare it to the original. Both devices work great but the Plus 2 is the better option thanks to the temperature sensor and local voice control. The ability to gauge and adjust a room’s temperature makes this device a must as it truly improves your quality of life.

Features:

  1. Design:

The Amazon Echo Plus was designed to be the centerpiece of your smart home experience. It is shorter and wider than its previous version, at less than 6 inches tall and around 4 inches wider, given the fabric surface on its exterior. It still has the same blue ring, and it has four buttons on top: volume up, volume down, action button, and mic off button. The Plus 2nd gen comes in heather grey, charcoal, or sandstone. A 3.5mm AUX jack remains on the back for hooking up another speaker, too.

     2. Performance

Amazon claims the Echo Plus offers enhanced sound quality over its counterparts. A 3-inch neodymium woofer and increased back volume will give more depth and bass to its sound quality.

The new Echo Plus 2nd geration support Alexa’s new local voice control feature. That means If your internet or Wi-fi is not working, local voice control can do it so you can still use your voice to control your lights, plugs, and switches.

That upgrade might not seem like a big deal, but it could be handy in an emergency and will make controlling your smart home much easier if you have spotty Wi-Fi.

Both the first generation and second generation Echo Plus units have this capability, given the addition of the built-in Zigabee Hub.

Amazon Echo show : Review

The 7-inch touchscreen on the Amazon Echo Show may sound substantial in relation to, say, a smartphone. But for a device designed to sit on your countertop or coffee table, it’s, well, tiny especially if you’re the kind of person who spends most of their days lounging in front of 65-inch TVs or gaming on 32-inch monitors. The Amazon Echo Show is a digital assistant with a 7-inch touchscreen that can show you movie trailers, calendar, news alerts, Yelp ratings, and pictures of cats (if you ask the right way). We got our hands (and eyeballs) on the Show to see if the screen opens up a whole new dimension to the voice assistant.

Now, when offering up voice commands for Alexa to answer using data from the cloud, visual feedback, as well as audio feedback, can appear.

Echo Show – Black

Voice responses from Alexa are now enhanced with visuals and optimized for visibility across the room. Call or message your family and friends that also have an Echo or the Alexa App, get the news with a video flash briefing, see your Prime Photos, shop with your voice, see lyrics with Amazon Music, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more. All you have to do is ask.

Echo Show has eight microphones and beam-forming technology so it can hear you from across the room—even while music is playing. Echo Show is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive audio powered by Dolby. When you want to use Echo Show, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Echo Show responds instantly.

Introducing a new way to be together more with the people who matter most. Make hands-free video calls to friends and family who have an Echo Show or the Alexa App. When you’re busy making dinner, just ask Alexa to place a call from your Echo Show to anyone with a supported Echo device or the Alexa App. You can also enable a new feature called Drop In for the special cases when you want to connect with your closest friends and family. For example, you can drop in to let the family know it’s time for dinner, see the baby’s nursery, or check in with a close relative.

With the Alexa App, conversations and contacts go where you go. When you’re away from home, use the app to make a quick call or send a message to your family’s Echo. Alexa calling and messaging is free—to get started, download the latest version of the Alexa App on a smartphone with iOS 9.0 or higher, or Android 5.0 or higher, and verify your mobile number.

Voice control your music

Powered by Dolby, Echo Show is fine-tuned to deliver crisp vocals with the dynamic bass response and expansive sound. Watch as the display comes alive to show song lyrics, custom stations, curated playlists, and album art with Amazon Music. Listen to tens of millions of songs with Amazon Music Unlimited.

Far-field voice recognition

Equipped with eight microphones, beam-forming technology, and noise cancellation, Echo Show hears you from any direction–even while music is playing.

Control your smart home

Use Echo Show to see a live camera feed from the nursery or your front door. Turn on the fan or dim the lights from the couch—all without lifting a finger.

Always getting smarter

Alexa—the brain behind Echo Show—is built in the cloud, so she is always getting smarter. The more you use Echo Show, the more it adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. And because Echo Show is always connected, updates are delivered automatically.

Skills add even more capabilities like making a dinner reservation with OpenTable, requesting a ride from Uber, tracking your steps with Fitbit, trying a new recipe from Allrecipes, and more. New skills are being added all the time. You can also see ratings and reviews to learn what other customers are saying about skills in the Alexa App.

LG Smart TV 2018: Review, models, and smart Features

There is no more important component of a 4K UHD TV than the video engine – particularly the ability to upscale/upconvert resolution to the native resolution of the panel. For the last four years, LG’s TVs with OLED panels that are organic light emitting diode screens have taken top honors for picture quality in CNET’s reviews. LG has a large lineup that covers everything from the very cheap and small lower resolution TVs to the very high end with their OLEDs.

Every year they beat the best LCD-based TVs, and every year I call the newest LG OLED the best TV I’ve ever tested.
