Tend reveals new Lynx Indoor Camera

A man’s home is his castle, and that would mean having to secure the safety and security of the perimeters. While having a dog does have its fair share of advantages, what about a digital camera in place? Security cameras have long become a staple in many of the larger sized houses that you see around the country, so why not make sure that you end up with nothing but the best? Tend has come up with the Lynx, where it will bring together an extremely simple setup process with HD (High Definition) live video monitoring as well as advanced facial recognition and motion triggered recording so that nothing escapes the Lynx’s “eyes”.

Specially designed in order to secure the people, places and things that matter most using incredibly simple with powerful and sophisticated technology, the new Tend Secure Lynx Indoor camera will deliver the perfect combination of intelligent, yet effortless, video security. Boasting of crystal clear 1080p HD video and crisp two-way audio, the Tend Secure Lynx Indoor delivers a smart video monitoring solution which will be able to work with just about any existing Wi-Fi network in a jiffy. It takes just minutes to setup, where you can then choose to place or mount it anywhere without the need for complicated wiring. This provides you with round-the-clock monitoring, including infrared capability. Wish to have a greater peace of mind? Install multiple Lynx Indoor cameras on the same network, and you can then keep track of different rooms, entryways or other locations.

The integrated and advanced facial recognition technology will be able to automatically recognize familiar faces so that security is maximized while doing away with false alarms. It remains to be seen just how accurate the facial recognition technology is, but it sure looks as though things are getting smarter around the home all the time. It will need to be trained though, but the Tend Secure app on iOS and Android can issue a mobile check-in alert as well.

The asking price of $59.99 apiece is certainly more than welcome, and it should make home security more affordable to everyone.

The Philips NC1 Noise Canceling Headphones help make Mondays manageable

Philips NC1

Some days you wish the world had a volume knob so you didn’t have to listen to people talking on their phones, listening to music way too loud, traffic, and the hum of the fluorescent lights above your head in the office. We can’t always completely tune out of our surroundings, but when we can, we want our escape to encompass enough of our senses that we can relax. Listening to some music is always a great way to unwind, but if you can hear any exterior noise, it will break the illusion somewhat.

To get a truly immersive sound experience, you either need to be in a theater, or have noise canceling headphones. There are a multitude of options, and the Philips NC1 Headphones seems like they might be a decent contender. These are 40-mm driver headphones that will let you sink into a blissful sound-scape whenever you need to. They have a standalone acoustic chamber for sound precision, and in-line controls with a mic for when you need to take a call.

They’re quite convenient for travel since they can fold up and be stowed away when they’re not in use. Additionally, they weigh less than 7 ounces, so you shouldn’t be too encumbered by tossing them in your pack. These are going to cost you around $150, and while you may not escape the world around you completely, you can at least drift off for a little while.

Available for purchase on Amazon

V-Moda reveals the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones

V-Moda is well known for their collection of headphones as well as other audio products, and most of the time, these offerings tend to be on the high end side of things. It is the same this time around, with the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones. Specially designed by and for modern audiophiles, the Forza Metallo Wireless comes across as a high-performance and ultra-sleek companion for anyone who has high demands for their audio accessories. Boasting of the newly developed 5.8mm dynamic micro Hi-Res driver, it will be accompanied by a futuristic sweat-resistant technology, patent-pending sport fins for hybrid sport performance and the world’s first jewel-grade 3D printing customization of in-ears.

Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO, beams proudly at the Forza Metallo, saying, “All other in-ear wireless headphones have a variety of form factors with show stopping compromises, imperfect ergonomics or useless gimmicks. They either look like unsightly massive ‘plastic space ring around the collars’, Frankenstein bolts that will not stay in your ears or separate earbuds that are quickly lost, have reception issues and need a dongle or case. Our first neckband Bluetooth headphone features a minimal design that can hide under a shirt collar, maximum battery life, enhanced antenna and unrivaled all-day ergonomics. With Forza Metallo Wireless we are unleashing audiophiles and professionals with ultimate ergonomics via our unique TrapLock™ titanium cable refined to every nanometer from countless anatomical tests conducted over years.”

While it sports a minimal design, it is still a high performance piece of hardware, where you will be able to enjoy balanced vibrant bass, vivid mids and natural stress-free highs surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage. The Hi-Res drivers themselves are joined by a CNC forged aircraft-grade metal housing, specially meant to reveal music like instrument engineers intended. It even has the Qualcomm aptX audio codec that helps deliver peak audio, allowing consumers to enjoy CD quality wireless audio playback. Expect the Forza Metallo Wireless to arrive in shades of Gunmetal Black and White Silver for $170 each.
