Make Project Fi Your Wireless Service When Traveling

How To: Make Project Fi Your Wireless And Voice Service When Traveling by WinSuperSite.com

After two weeks in Europe with Project Fi, I don’t want to turn the service off. 

I probably will, because I use a family plan with one of the “big four” carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon) and have no need for another line of service. But I’m sold on how Project Fi handles wireless connectivity abroad, and believe this is the model for other carriers to follow. It’s transparent, simple, and is way better than the ridiculous international plans offered by others.

How to Find and Remove Malware With Windows Defender Offline by How-To-Geek

This tool is called “Windows Defender Offline” because it scans when Windows isn’t running.

  • Either enter your serial number or press Skip

Motion Sensor Light 5W LED

Elrigs Microwave Motion Sensor Light 5W LED Bulb 40W Equivalent 5m Induction Distance 3000K Warm White – $13.99 each two for $22.99 – Free Shipping for Prime Members

I use this LED bulb with built in HF motion sensor and light sensor in my front porch light, it works perfectly even with the heavy glass cover on my porch light.

  • Easy installation, just screw in the socket, enjoy a motion sensor light.
  • Intelligent built in motion sensor, automatic on when object moves, off in 30 seconds after last movement.
  • Built in light sensor, respond to light level, when the light around the bulb is bright enough, it doesn't shine even though someone moves into induction range.
  • Detects movement up to 5m distance.

There are two motion detection technologies used in LED bulbs.

Passive infrared (PIR)
Passive infrared sensors are sensitive to a person's skin temperature through emitted black body radiation at mid-infrared wavelengths, in contrast to background objects at room temperature. No energy is emitted from the sensor, thus the name "passive infrared" (PIR).

Microwave
These detect motion through the principle of Doppler radar, and are similar to a radar speed gun. A continuous wave of microwaveradiation is emitted, and phase shifts in the reflected microwaves due to motion of an object toward (or away from) the receiver, this turns the light on.
