Hi,

I am aware of the fitness bands and trackers for keeping statistics for fitness routines and a person's progress.

What I am looking for is a band that focuses primarily on health rather than fitness.

The device should have a heart monitor, blood pressure monitor and alarms for difference warning scenarios.

What would be the best tracker bands that would focus on health monitoring?

Thanks,
Robbie

I'm designing a device that plugs into a base and am looking for clip-like part that will take a metal tab and transfer a small current (5V) to an LED in the device. The user should be able to pull the device off easily, but still have good enough contact to supply power.

What hardware should I be looking at?

Please see my very rough mockup:

Hi,

We would like to get Freeview or terrestrial channels on our large display.

We are thinking of purchasing an Amazon Fire TV and connecting it to the large display to give access to these channels.

Does the Amazon Fire TV come with Freeview or terrestrial channels?

If not, is there a way of getting these channels on to the Fire TV and how would this be done?

Thanks,
Robbie

Does anyone know what's the maximum distance (if any) for the key readers in the building?  From the electronic panel to the key reader.  
We use keyfobs for the building.  Sometimes one or two doors key readers (out of 5 total) do not react to the keyfobs.  And that those that farthest away from the electronic panels inside the Telco room.   So my suspicious would be a distance limit but I would be completely wrong.
Any knowledge in this?  Thanks.

Hi,

We are looking for a security camera that can alert the user if motion is detected and does not take up much bandwidth.

We have Nest cameras which are on 24/7 but the problem is that they take up a lot of bandwidth.

Here is my criteria for the camera we are looking for:

- Less than €100
- Does not constantly take up bandwidth 24/7; only uses bandwidth for tasks such as notification sending, if user wishes to access pictures taken by the camera,etc.
- Does not need a subscription
- Can send a message to a person's phone when motion detected or when the camera sees someone
- Released in the past 2 years or more recently

What would be recommended as the best security camera with the above criteria?

Thanks,
Robbie

Where are my videos hiding on my iPhone 7?

I am using a few teleprompter apps and start the recording okay, but I can not find where the video is being placed for either app. I look in the Camera app since that is where I see videos when created with the Camera app, but I am sure they are elsewhere...

Any ides where I can find them?

Thanks

Why does my Canon SX720 HS NOT go into Record mode, and beep instead?

I record often with my Canon, and usually have no issue. But sometimes, pushing the Record button causes it to beep three or four times in rapid succession, and NOT record.

There is no error displayed. (Is there an error log somewhere?)

My only recourse is to power off then power up.

I do not have a clue what is happening, and fear that a longer video may be interrupted, where I am recording, only to find later it switched itself off.

Thoughts?

I have a Samsung AirTrack speaker system: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/2013-2-1-channel-soundbar-system-with-wireless-subwoofer-hw-f550-551.
The wireless subwoofer is not working.
I called Samsung and they said it needs to be repaired, but it's out of warranty.
What are the next steps I can take to try to troubleshoot this beyond doing a hard reset and re-pairing the speakers?

Need Best Video Settings for Canon SX 720

I took a video of myself, after many attempts, that looked acceptable. But I noticed the buildings in the background came in and out of focus.

Then, I noticed, when I came closer to the camera (during filming) even by inches, that triggered the change in focus.

I had the "wheel" set to "Auto" and I assumed there was an auto-focus thing going on.

I need to make yet another take, but first need to understand the video options for that camera.

Please let me know...

I am close to the camera, perhaps 4 feet away. And I am taping the buildings across the harbor, perhaps 1/4 mile away.

Also, is there a way to use Bluetooth for the Microphone?

Thanks!

Need to Connect BlueTooth Transmitter to MacBook

I bought this, with no manual.

I can not see how to  put it in pairing mode.

http://www.trainitright.com/konecta-from-soundwhiz-wireless-bluetooth-audio/

I see a Power button but when I press and hold, nothing happens.

The toggle switch is set to TX for Trasmitter.
 
When I press for a shorter time, I see a show flash of blue...that repeats...

Suggestions?

Thanks

Need to trigger shutter on a very long selfie-stick.

https://www.ebay.com/i/401522995718?rt=nc&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20160908110712%26meid%3D65c24b07180e46b7b372542a5b2d94ba%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D7%26rkt%3D30%26sd%3D112605178987%26itm%3D401522995718

I have a Canon PowerShot 12X and hope to get a Canon SX720.

I want a really long selfie-stick I can use to dramatically change my perspective while making photos.

But I do not want to be bothered with setting a self-timer or recording it as a video, which I then need to watch to find that perfect shot, etc.

I need a trigger that will fire the shutter.

What technologies do this?

Can  I use my old camera for this? If I buy a Canon SX720, does this have the ability for this?

If Bluetooth i the trick, does this mean I need a BT trigger? Does this support Canon PowerShot 12X? Canon SX720?

Thanks

Never used a Selfie-stick

I want to take picture from a teller perspective and hope to use a Selfie-stick to give me a could of extra feet. But I see no way to trigger the shutter.

What am I missing??

The various apartments in our residential area links up to an Intercomm
system where outside visitors could press our apartment's unit # to
communicate with us when they reach the security guard house.

Attached is the photo.

A week back, this unit turns faulty & the contractor requires $300 + to
replace it:  is this something proprietary or I can get a compatible set
from eBay to replace?   I've tried adjusting volumes & resit but no joy.

If there's compatible set for this  urmet set, pls provide me the online
link to purchase

Need to get best memory card (best value) for Canon SX720

I need to store lots of pictures for photo shoots but am not sure of what memory card to choose. Prices are all over the place.

This one hold 256MG:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/SanDisk-256GB-Ultra-Micro-SD-SDXC-100MB-s-Class-10-UHS-I-Mobile-Memory-Card/222950331995?hash=item33e8e0165b

This one is half the space but a third of the cost:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/SanDisk-Ultra-128GB-90mpso-micro-sd-card/123126409851?epid=219694083&hash=item1caae7ea7b:g:K7EAAOSwWsxa9Zfm

I take dozens of pictures per photo shoot, but download them to my PC after each shoot. I feel like I will never have a problem, even with a 32BG memory card.

Are there speed considerations?

Plotting Photos on a Map

I have pictures from an iPhone6, iPhone 7 and a Canon PowerShot.

I know the iPhone 7 photos have the geo coding embedded. But I need to verify the Canon Power Shot is working for geo coding.

And if not, I may buy a new camera for myself.

And how do I view a folder of image and plot them all on a map?

Thanks

Hi,

We have plans to test the audio quality for songs played through Spotify on different audio quality settings as well as compared to songs played through TIDAL.

The ideal situation would be that we would play a song on Spotify for example and the audio quality would display through app/software as 160kbps or 320kbps.

Is there an Android app or Windows software that can be used to display bit rate of a song played?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi,

At present, we are using Spotify as our source for playing quality music on Denon AVR X4300 through our Dali speakers.

We would like to have the best quality sounding music.

Which music streaming service offers the best sounding quality music, to be played on Denon AVR X4300?

Thanks,

Hi,

We have a Denon AVR X4300 which is connected with speakers and we have surround sound for music, radio, etc.
https://www.denon.co.uk/uk/product/homecinema/avreceiver/avrx4300hv2

Back of Denon:
https://www.google.ie/search?dcr=0&biw=1125&bih=663&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=i-2oWtG2K8iHgQaApqjYAg&q=denon+avr+x4300&oq=denon+avr+x4300&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0l2j0i24k1l8.629949.634464.0.634927.23.15.0.0.0.0.471.1897.2-1j2j2.5.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..18.5.1896...0i67k1.0.WNcM6UitMAU#imgrc=JSOEvsQMsE7U3M:

We are having problems connecting FM internet radio stations to our Denon AVR X4300.

At most, 3 radio stations connect with use of internal FM radio antenna connected to Denon AVR X4300.

A different radio in the room, which is a basic radio with antenna, has over 10 radio stations it can connect to.

1. Which provides the best quality radio over the surround sound system; Internet radio or external FM Antenna?

2. If external FM Antenna is best quality for radio, what would be the best external/ outdoor FM DAB radio antenna to use for Denon AVR X4300?

3. No point in buying and installing an external antenna and then finding out the the sound quality is better on one of the internet services.
It would be redundant and annoying to finding that out later.

Thanks,
Robbie
