Smart Home
Been staying at my place for almost two years now. With regards to my smart home update, I found out that MCO Touch Panel is not very lasting.

Three of my 1-gang MCO Touch Panel (MH-S411) spoiled. Spoiled in a sense, it doesn’t have power to the unit, and hence I can’t switch on or off my lights. Another of my 4-gang MCO Touch Panel (MH-S314), the Z-wave module inside it spoiled, so I can’t pair it.

Google Home Mini

Google US Store is making life difficult for many people outside of the US that are trying to get the Google Home Mini for US$29 (S$40).

As the original retail price was US$49 (S$66), the 40% discount makes it hard not to buy it for fun.
