LiveWatch Security Low Cost, DIY Security System! Simplisafe Alternative (Two Months Free Inside)

Two Months Free Using My Link

Looking for a simple DIY, easy to install system?  LiveWatch is that system!!!

Pros
1.) No Pressure Sales – Their sales department is no pressure and will even tell you to shop around! I shopped around, got a price by simplisafe, and they beat it! How?  Well they gave me a few free months on service which brought my all in cost well below Simplisafe!

2.) Willing to work with you on packages – They know everyone has different needs.  They took their base package ($49 at the time of my purchase) and substituted parts in the package so that it met my needs! I was able to get a package with two remotes, 5 door/window sensors, built in glass break sensor for $49! They gave me a discount and substituted parts from the base system to meet my needs without increasing price

3.) Easy install! – No tools required!

4.) They setup an appointment to verify your install and walk you through using your system.  They do this over the phone but confirm your system is installed correctly AND help you learn how to use your system

5.) Plenty of monthly plans to meet EVERYONES needs!! Just keep in mind, any plan under $34 will require you to pay more for your system

6.) No contracts! Yes, you are required to agree to a 12 month term BUT if you don’t want to finish the term, just return your system and they will cancel without any fees!!  If you want until after your 12 months to cancel, you get to keep the system!  This is very fair because at $49, I received a GREAT deal on the system so they need me to stick around to actually make money on me.

7.) Equipment – NOW with VERY MODERN equipment by Quality of Life (QOL).  This equipment will work with most modern smart home products and not just home security products.  The equipment looks nice in your home, is very high quality, and comes with a great warranty!

8.) Lifetime Warranty (HINT): Just ask for it and ask if you can have it for free.. They will gladly say yes!!

9.) Customer Service is TOP NOTCH.. Not pushy!! They checkup on you via follow-up calls and emails.. They don’t push you to buy more services or higher plans.  They never even ask! They simply want to help

10.) SYSTEM PRICE IS GREAT! As long as you keep the system for a year, you it’s yours to own after that year!!  If you cancel service before 1 year you can pay for the “Discount” they offered or send it back.  The choice is yours.

11.) Alarm.com service – They are an alarm.com service meaning the monitoring and smart functions use the alarm.com app.  Alarm.com has millions upon millions of users so there is no worrying about the monitoring service going under.

12.) Mobile apps for arming your home works GREAT (Requires $34 plan or higher)

Tips

1.) Just talk to them! They will make you a system that works for your needs and do their best to keep it around the $50 price!!  They had to offer me discounts to do that but they had no issues offering those discounts

2.) Mention other services you are considering!  They will do everything in their power to meet or beat the prices of those services!!

Overall: I am very happy with the sales, customer service, and monitoring service in general offered by LiveWatch!  I feel safe, my home feels more secure, and the price is very affordable without any contracts!

Esolom WiFi Smart Plug, Mini Smart Socket Outlet with Energy Monitoring, Compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, Timing Function, Remote Control Your Devices Anywhere, No Hub Required – 2 Packs



Awesome plug! The long slim design works great wall outlets because it doesn’t block the second outlet!! This plug works great with the “Smart Life” app which is a must for all the smart plugs I buy! Smart Life has an awesome Alexa skill that allows these plugs to be used with Amazon Echos or any other Alexa enabled device!! Smart Life also works with other brand outlets which is a must for me!

Note: A home hub is not required for these plugs but also know that these plugs won’t work with hubs like Wink! If that’s a must for you, look elsewhere.. but know that Google Home, Alexa, and a lot of other devices can communicate with this outlet via “Skills”, “app” or whatever

Note 2: These outlets work with other Apps but I have always used Smart Life (which the outlet recommends). Just keep in mind, the features I mention in this review are based on the Smart Life App

Pros
1.) Uses Smart Life App
2.) Plugs can be named (if using smart life app.. other apps might also allow names).. naming the plug allows you to say “Alexa, turn off the Aquarium Light” and if the plug is named aquarium light Alexa will turn it off
3.) Allows imer function (if using the smart life app)
4.) Smart Life App is compatible with other brand smart plugs

Overall: Great Plug! I highly recommend it

Blood Pressure Monitor with Arm Cuff Adult Sphygmomanometer Automatic Digital LCD USB Port Fit Standard and Large Arms VANDER LIFE

I’ll keep this short and sweet.. purchased this for an elderly grandparent that needs to check their blood pressure every so often.. we found it to be very accurate and we found it to be very easy to use.  It didn’t take us long to teach her how to use it and she is able to use it without any issues!  We confirmed it’s accuracy with the doctor’s office and they confirmed it is accurate enough to be safely used.. I highly recommend this.

Steam Link

I got this for $15 during the Steam Summer sale and it is well worth that! I only have access to setting this up via a WiFi connection, and while that is not ideal for all games, it is working fine on the games I am using it for.. Keep in mind, this does NOT run games.. it streams them from your computer! If your computer is slow with games, this probably won’t work very well..

I am using it to play the following games and types of games without any issues

1.) Older PC games
2.) Graphic Novels (Anime, Life is Strange, that type of stuff)
3.) Older XBox Games (Fabel Anniversary, Half Life, Games like that)

For those games it works GREAT over WiFi! I am also playing some newer games with it, without any issues but I do turn graphics down on those games so it streams better..

I also have it set at 720P which helps streaming over WiFi

Keep in mind, I am using a very high quality 5ghz router which helps the streaming significantly..

Pros
1.) Very easy setup! Basically, when I plugged it in, and sign into my network it found my games and my computer.. super easy!

2.) Works very well with the steam controller!

3.) Includes everything you need (HDMI, Cat5, Power Adapter)

4.) Works well with steam controller and Bluetooth controller’s (keep in mind, a controller is not included)

Tips
1.) Some games on steam aren’t designed to use with controllers.. I find those games sometimes have issues using steam link.. basically I lost sync with my controller at times.. This doesn’t happen on games that are designed to work with controllers

2.) While a wired network is probably best, a high quality wireless network works fine on most games

Overall: I never wanted to pay full price for this, knowing I didn’t have good access to a wired network, but for the price I paid, I am very happy with it! It’s working well for my needs, my games, and my setup.. With that being said, knowing it works for me, I’d happily pay full price for this.
