Home Monitoring Devices

If you’re going to be away from home for a prolonged period of time and want to be sure your things are kept safe, consider buying and installing a home monitoring device. Just the peace of mind alone can be worth the investment, and you can set it up in any area of the house to check in on your house, house sitter, and pets. The Nest Cam allows you to constantly see the on goings of your home all in the palm of your hand— from your smartphone to be exact. One of my favorite parts of this item is that it lets you know when you need to be watching. We can’t watch our home 24/7, especially if we’re out exploring the world. Nest will send you a notification if it detects motion or picks up unusual sounds, meaning you’ll be kept informed when necessary and breathe easy when not.

These earphones aren’t the highest quality in terms of audio production, but if you’re wanting to drown out the snores of nearby train mates or flight seat buddies, they’ll definitely do the trick.
