Keychron Q1

After getting my Keychron K7, it got me interested in the world of Keyboard modding. So happen that my brother also got interested and he bought for himself and me the Keychron Q1 (USD$169 / S$229) together with the Keychron Keyboard Wooden Palm Rest (USD$25 / S$34).

I chose the Fully Assembled Carbon Black Base with Gateron Phantom Blue switches. Fully assembled because it is just US$20 difference, and I don’t have any existing switches that I can use.

Keychron Coiled Aviator Cable

I think Keychron K7‘s battery life is bad. Using it for about 8 hours a day, it could not even last through a 5-day work week on a single charge.

I disabled the auto-sleep mode because, for some reason, when the keyboard wakes up from sleep, it refuses to connect back to my MacBook Pro via Bluetooth.

Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired) Review

After bricking my Nest Hello, I decided to get the Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired) from Eufy US Website. I chose Eufy after reading Domotics review on Eufy Doorbell 2K (Wired). The author, Mike, also encountered the same thing with his Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired). He eventually gave up and bought a Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired). So I thought, it works for him, it should work for me.

I paid US$115.48 (S$156) for the Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (Wired). That is after a US$40 discount from their retail price of US$155.48. Shipping from my freight forwarder, HopShopGo, to Singapore is an additional US$19.96 (S$27) via DHL.

Google Nest Hub (2nd Generation)

Bought the Google Nest Hub (2nd Generation) from a Lazada store named Project KR for S$99.99 during their flash sale on 9th September 2021. Shipping is free since I have collected the free shipping voucher. If not, it will be S$1.49.

For S$99.99, it is an excellent deal since, in the US, it is already selling for US$99.99, and you have not factored in shipping to Singapore yet.

My Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired) Is Bricked

The next day after publishing my Installing Nest Hello Doorbell To HDB BTO Doorbell post, my Nest Hello Doorbell decided to give up on me.

I received the Nest Hello Doorbell (Wired) on 7th September 2021, and on 9th September 2021, the first problem occurred. There is no ring light around the Nest Hello. I restart the Nest Hello by switching on and off the transformer plug, and it works great after that.
