Sometimes it can be hard to get excited about all the smart home gadgets out there. Almost every company seems to have a wireless security camera (just give a search on Amazon), but every once in a while we see something that's actually sort of cool or unique. Today it's the Reolink Go that's caught our eye. It's a 4G LTE security camera with a weatherproof design, rechargeable battery, and optional solar panel. It's currently available for pre-purchase at a promotional price via an Indiegogo campaign, which has already met its funding goal with one month remaining.
Security cameras come in all shapes and sizes, and there are a ton of different potential configurations. But if you need DVR storage at up to 1080p resolution, support for up to 8 cameras (with four conveniently included), and intelligent motion detection with alerts, ANNKE's solution might be for you. Better, we have a coupon (TTXS6D5Q) that brings the whole package down to $78.09
We've been taking a thorough look at smart monitoring cameras here on Android Police, but the overarching complaint in most of them from us and you, the readers, is always the price and the paid plans. That's why for my next two reviews, I will be focusing on two camera makers that don't require you break the bank to buy their hardware nor to use it. The first brand is Reolink and I'll be reviewing two of its cameras: the Keen ($119.99) and the Argus ($99.99), both of which offer MicroSD storage. (The second brand is Amcrest, which I'll review in a week or so.)
Altec Lansing has announced a meaningful update to last year's Life Jacket speaker, which was pretty cool in its own right. This year's version is called the BoomJacket, which boasts double the battery life of its predecessor along with increased connectivity range. It can also be used as a portable charger for your other devices, though we don't have any specs on that just yet.
Take a look at some of the stuff Altec Lansing did to the Life Jacket, which is now the older model. Explosives, trucks, water, sand, dirt, etc. are no match for it.
The BoomJacket, which is 7.5" x 3.125" x 2.825" in size, has two 2" neodymium drivers and passive radiators (downsized from the Life Jacket's 2.5" drivers) while supporting aptX audio output.
