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.

Koncept Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp Review

Koncept Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp (AR3000) is the second Koncept Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp that I have. The first being the Koncept Z-Bar Slim LED Desk Lamp which I bought more than 8 years ago, and it is still working perfectly in my Computer Room.

Bridgemen is still the sole distributor of Koncept products and after seeing my previous post, they have kindly sent me the Koncept Z-Bar LED Desk Lamp, together with the Koncept Desk Clamp (MT01C3), and Koncept Occupancy Sensor (P7-01OCC01A) for me to feature them.

ILife Shinebot W450 Review

I bought the Life Shinebot W450 from Lazada for S$249.99. The usual retail price is S$320, but during the 8/8 sale, it dropped to S$287.99. After deducting an additional shop voucher of S$8 and a bank voucher of S$30, I ended up paying S$249.99. Shipping to Singapore is S$1.49, but I have a free shipping voucher from Lazada as well.

Life Shinebot W450 is a single-purpose mopping robot, and hence it doesn’t vacuum.

Arlo Essential Indoor Camera Review

Arlo launched their Arlo Essential Indoor Camera last month and it is currently retailing for S$199. Essentially (pun intended), this camera is the indoor version of the Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera that I reviewed last October.

The major difference is Essential Indoor is wired, and Essential Spotlight is wireless. Essential Indoor doesn’t have a spotlight, and its night vision is black and white only.

Synology DiskStation DS1621+ Review

I decided to upgrade my slightly more than three years old 4-bay Synology DiskStation DS918+ to the 6-bay Synology DiskStation DS1621+.

Back in 2017, DS918+ was the flagship Synology 4-bay NAS and that was replaced with DS920+ in 2020. Also in 2020, the 5-bay DS1520+ got updated.

ASUSTOR Lockerstor 4 (AS6604T) Review

When I think of NAS, there are always three brands that came to my mind. Synology, QNAP, and ASUSTOR. All three brands are from Taiwan. I reviewed Synology NAS many times and did my first QNAP NAS review in December.

To complete the trilogy, I have with me the Asustor Lockerstor 4 (AS6604T) which is equivalent to the Synology DS920+ and QNAP TS-453D. All three models are 4-bay NAS, powered by Intel Celeron J4125 and comes with 4GB of DDR4 ram. Intel J4125 is a 4-core 2.0 GHz (burstable to 2.7 GHz) processor.

QNAP TS-453D Review

My second NAS 10 years ago was a decision between Synology NAS and QNAP NAS. In the end, I chose Synology. I can’t remember the reason why. Throughout all these years, I have been sticking with Synology NAS.

QNAP contacted me and wanted to hear my thoughts on the QNAP TS-453D against the Synology DiskStation DS920+, so they sent me the QNAP TS-453D.

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).
