Sonoff Micro USB Smart Adaptor

Bought the Sonoff Micro USB Smart Adaptor from Lazada for S$13.99. Shipping is free as I got the free shipping coupon due to Lazada’s year-end sale.

Sonoff Micro USB Smart Adaptor is a no-frill device that allows you to control your USB device remotely. The device connects to your wi-fi network and can be added via the eWeLink app.

Sonoff T2UK Wi-Fi Smart Wall Switch Review

Back Story
Right at the beginning of my smart home journey in 2016, I have been using MCO Z-Wave smart wall switches.

I have used a mix of both Series 3 and Series 4 MCO switches. All my 1-gang switches are Series 4 (MH-S411), and all my 2-gang and 3-gang switches are Series 3 (MH-S312 and MH-S314).

Google Assistant Now Available For Sonos Users In Singapore

If you are using Sonos One or Sonos Beam in Singapore, you will be happy to know that as of two days ago (6th November 2019), Google Assistant is available for all Sonos users in Singapore.

Previously, if you want to use Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you will need to go to your Sonos profile and change your country to the United States, as mentioned in my Sonos One blog post.

Google Home Hub

Bought the Google Home Hub during Black Friday as Google is having US$50 off the retail price of US$149.

I did not get the Google Home Hub from Google US Store as the chances of my order going through is close to zero. Similar to the Google Home Mini that I got for Black Friday last year, I got it directly from B&H Photo Video. They have the same promotion as Google US Store.

Tile Mate

On Friday, 28th September 2018, I saw Kinja Deals posted a post regarding Tile Mate discount on Amazon. It is almost 50% cheaper than their usual Amazon price of about US$100.

The Tile Mate 8-Pack retails for US$43.58 (S$60) and delivery to Singapore is an addition US$5.01 (S$7). That works out to be about S$8.40 per Tile Mate. In Singapore, Courts is selling a single Tile Mate for S$29 with no option to buy it in a pack.
