Reolink RLC-510A & RLC-810A Review – Smart human & car detection surveillance cameras with 5MP/4K

Reolink has finally joined the growing list of companies that offer an advanced smart motion detection technology enabling the camera to distinguish between people and cars. I have been a massive fan of human/car motion detection since I first experienced it with the Netatmo Floodlight Camera. Since then, other brands have adopted the technology including the latest EufyCam 2 and Eufy 2C, Ring Doorbell cameras, Hikvision, Arlo as part of their subscription service, and then Blue Iris with its Sentry AI alerts (and many other competing NVR systems). The two new cameras are the Reolink RLC-510A & RLC-810A. They...

Throwing a complete curveball in the world of home surveillance, Ring has launched the Always Home Cam. They seem to be coy about calling it a drone, but it is one.

Ring was at the forefront of the smart doorbell camera market, while they still dominate it, many new brands are now competing aggressively. Then their smart alarm and indoor-outdoor cameras all compete in a highly competitive market again brands such as Arlo, Eufy, and even Bling, which is also owned...

So where did it begin and how quickly did it grow? Pre-web browsers Ecommerce existed before the internet as we know it.

Future Outlook: Soon-to-Be Cyber Security Solutions

Digital crimes are no longer a fantasy. We’re currently on the crossroads when scam, theft, and fraud on the web pose a more severe threat than offline ones. Why? We’ve been honing our protection methods from the crooks of all kinds for millennia. At the same time, online fraud is something that has existed for less than a half-a-century, making us vulnerable to virtual shenanigans. Especially disadvantaged here are digital tech platforms and businesses that are dealing with money exclusively online. And while technology companies are using online banking systems just for payments, there are also industries where the...

Huawei Watch GT 2 Pro Review – A stylish but incremental upgrade from the GT2

With both Huawei and Honor sharing the same watch platform, they have recently launched two watches which are almost the same, but completely different. The Honor Watch GS Pro leans into the fitness features adopting an outdoorsy aesthetic for fans of watches like the Casio G-Shock.

The TLDR of this post is that the chipset is effectively the same as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 but with higher frequency cores, faster memory...
