Home Automation Becoming More Affordable

Home automation includes centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, security locks, and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. The popularity of home automation has been increasing greatly in recent years.  It had been largely unaffordable and confusing to the average consumer for many years, but times are changing. 

Stewart Wolpin of Techlicious, writes in Home Automation Becomes Cheap and Easy, how home automation has become much more affordable especially with Staples and Home Depot announcing their respective home automation platforms – Staples Connect and Wink.

“Staples Connect and Home Depot Wink are multi-brand, multi-device and multi-protocol home automation systems that use one app, making them simple to set up and use–without the help of a professional installer. Both the Staples Connect and Home Depot Wink apps are free, and neither requires a subscription or service fee. Both apps are available for Apple’s iOS and Android; Staples Connect also is available for Windows 8 PCs and Windows Phone 8 mobile devices and, soon, through Samsung smart TVs.”

Landlines Are Being Dropped- 4 in 10 US Homes are Cellphone Only

Homes in the United States are dropping their landlines and opting for Cellphones only according to a recent CDC study. Four out of 10 households use cellphones only, which is twice the rate from just five years ago. Mike Stobbe of AP recently reported for ABC News, 4 in 10 US Homes Are Cellphone Only, Skip Landline.

The CDC survey released today, July 8, 2014, is based on in-person interviews in more than 21,000 homes during the last half of 2013. Some of the facts that the researchers found include:

  • Not all homes have phones: About 3 percent have no landline or cellphone.
  • About 9 percent have only landlines, and about 48 percent have both. Five years ago, 17 percent had only landlines, and about 60 percent had landlines and cellphones
  • Younger people rely more on cellphones: Nearly two-thirds of people in their late 20s live in households with only cellphones. Only 14 percent of people 65 and older use only cellphones.
  • The Midwest is the most wireless region: About 44 percent live in cellphone-only homes. The South and West were nearly as high. In the Northeast, 25 percent live in cellphone-only households.

Post-It Place Reviews Mobile1 – And Offers Giveaway

zBoost Mobile 1 boosts cell signals to new heights! (And a Giveaway)“ “I have always loved zBoost, so when contacted about their new mobile booster I was thrilled. I did receive a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for testing out the zBoost Mobile 1 device. All opinions are mine and are in no way influenced by receipt of product.”

Out here in the country a cell service signal can at times be hard to come by…even here at the house. But if you go even further up in the mountains…it becomes near impossible. And we find ourselves in that predicament often. Like recently I went up and spent a day with some friends at their property even further up in the mountains than where I live and I knew from past experience that a cell signal was going to be non-existent. I was right. I thought Tate was going to have a coronary at first when he realized that he was going to have to go a full day without a signal.

But I also knew that should we absolutely need it, we could have one thanks to the zBoost Mobile 1. The device is great. Seriously, my phone would go from “No Service” to 3 bars in a second once it was placed in the cradle. It is easy to install, easy to use and does it’s job fabulously!!


This is what it looks like in the car.

You can mount the cradle where it is convenient for you.

Then you just place your phone in the cradle and let it work its magic.

Happy Independence Day

As we celebrate the 4th of July with parades, barbecues, picnics and fireworks with our friends and family this week, we remember some of the events that led to our nation’s independence.  Our forefathers bravely fought to gain our freedom and dedicated their lives to this endeaver.  In 1776, representatives of the 13 colonies then fighting in the revolutionary war weighed a resolution that would declare independence from Great Britain. On July 2nd, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later its delegates adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson.


In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4th a federal holiday and it has been celebrated every year as an important national holiday and a symbol of patriotism.  In addition to fireworks and patriotic songs, a salute of one gun for each state in the United States, called a “salute to the union,” is fired on Independence Day at noon by any capable military base.

Wishing all of you a safe and happy Independence Day.


Drop Landline-Stay Connected with zBoost Cell Phone Signal Boosters

While Millennials and Generation Y continue to lead the trend to lose their landline for a modern mobile life, the CDC reports that 38% of adults in the U.S. live in households that have only a cell phone. With this continued decrease in landlines, a strong indoor cell phone signal becomes a necessity rather than a luxury.

A recent Consumer Reports survey found top reasons for keeping landlines to include: price, reliability, habit and quality. zBoost provides cellular signal boosters for everyone, at virtually every price point and can help consumers finally cut the landline and still stay connected,

•    Connection: 68% of consumers’ smartphone use happens at home. So what happens when this connection is lost? zBoost boosters help ensure consumers are connected for everyday activities as well as emergency situations, by bringing reliable cell phone signals inside, helping prevent dropped or missed calls, improving data speeds, and extending battery life.

•    Savings: The FCC recently estimated the average monthly landline phone rate at $30/month. With many zBoost boosters a consumer will have paid for their booster with less than 12 months of avoided landline charges.

 zBoost provides solutions for the 72% of cell phone owners experiencing problems with their cell phone service.  Find your solution at  http://www.zboost.com
