Back of Airport Express

Airport Express I love you!

You owe yourself an Airport Express!

What an elegant device that solves a multitude of problems.

  • Add a WIFI hotspot

This clever little device can add an additional WIFI hotspot in your house or office.

Lead an Ethernet cable from your existing ADSL Router and plug into the back of the Airport.
BOOM you have a fast and strong 802.11n wifi hotspot.

  • ¬†Make most USB printers WIFI

Plug your USB printer into the back of the Airport Express.
BOOM your non WIFI USB printer is now available via WIFI from Mac and PC computers.

  • AIRPLAY

Plug a lead from your HiFi into the back of the Airport Express.
BOOM!!!! CHAKA BOOM!
You can play your music collection from any Mac or iDevice wireless and blast it through your HiFi.

  

IP webcam

IP webcams are not new to the market. Traditionally they were prohibitively expensive and needed to be integrated into some sophisticated system to actually give you the functionality you needed. New to the market are WIFI IP Webcams like http://www.foscamsa.co.za/products/foscam-fi8918w-wireless-ip-camera-11.htmlFoscam 1

Foscam is a well established name in the security camera market. It’s great that they have brought a product like the FI8918W Wireless IP Camera to the market. It can be wall or roof mounted. It allows remote Pan/Tilt control (Pan:270deg& Tilt:120deg) Best of all other than the power cable it’s all WIFI. The camera joins your home WIFI network. Another huge bonus feature is that you don’t need special software to view and control the camera. It’s all browser controlled. The website has a unique, secure code to access so that you don’t have to worry about the bad guys spying on your home. The website allows control and viewing of up to 9 cameras. This built in scalability is great as it soon becomes “imperative” to have one of these setup in a couple of places in the house.

Foscam also makes a WIFI outdoor IP Webcam. It’s not as clever as it’s static but has the all weather advantage. http://www.foscamsa.co.za/foscam-fi8904w-outdoor-wireless-ip-camera-3.html

Summary: Well worth a look as this is tech that was only for the big league and was prohibitively expensive. Foscam has introduced a product that immediately gives you full functionality at a price the average home owner can afford.
