If you bought a Google OnHub router, or are thinking about it, you'll need to get familiar with the Google On app. We've taken a few minutes and went through everything you need to know to help get you started.
Most modern routers and other home networking equipment allow you to set a specific connected device to have a higher priority than other devices on the network. Google's OnHub routers support this, and they call it a Priority Device, and it easy to set one for a specific amount of time.
I finally got around to looking at the ASUS OnHub router. Google wasn't lying when they say it's better looking than the Sputnik-inspired dual-band router with multiple antennas and plenty of blinking things that I'm using now. But here we are, a day later, and I'm not using it.
The list of things Amazon Echo can do seems to grow by the day, but none of these new features is more powerful than the ability to initiate IFTTT recipes with your voice. Here's a short list of our favorites.
The top dog in wireless music is, of course, Sonos. But it's absolutely not the only player in the game. LG for a while now has had its Music Flow system. Multiple speakers can communicate to each other and play simultaneously, all tied together by your home's Wifi system.
One of the biggest holdouts for Chromecast support — Spotify — can finally take advantage of Google's excellent streaming protocol. But it's not quite as simple as it could be (or should be, perhaps), as there are a few caveats to how things are going to work.
Chromecast long has been a must-have accessory for Android. It's been redesigned and has better specs, and it now has an audio-only cousin. And it's still maybe the best $35 you can spend on for your phone.
Best Buy is offering a one-day savings on the Amazon Fire TV Stick, dropping the price of this streaming accessory to only $24.99. This sale is good through the end of the day, so act quick if you are interested.
Everyone knows the new Nest Cam is the next device in a lineup already planned by the folks at Dropcam before they were fully absorbed by their new parent company, but seeing this new camera side by side with the Dropcam Pro highlights the similarities perfectly.
There's a lot to like about this $200 smart security camera, so we're taking a quick tour around the ol' feature list. Current Dropcam users will feel right at home, but there's also a lot of room for growth.
