Andre has a budget of about $45,000 for a new vehicle and is looking at a used Model S. Is that a good idea? Leo says that he'll be better off with a Model 3, which is brand new and in the same price range. He's also getting a fresher battery, rather than buying someone else's, which may have reduced battery life. One thing that Leo is concerned about is the health of the Tesla car company itself long term. The real complaint that some are having is a delay in getting parts. Some up to two months and that's not a good sign. But every single person Leo knows who has a Model 3 loves it.
Owen wants to know how he can protect his pro-level cameras. Leo says you can 1) never use the branded straps that come with the camera 2) buy a cheap leather case and wear it around your neck 3) place electrical tape on the white logos to make it harder to see what brand your camera is.
Susan has a fighting studio, and she needs some security cameras. Preferably something wireless. Recommendations? Leo says that battery-powered cameras wouldn't work because they are motion-controlled. So Leo recommends cameras that are wired for AC power. He recommends the Google NEST Camera. But the downside is, that they're expensive and the monthly fee is required for storage. A better affordable option is WyzeCam. They start at $20. Offer night vision. Have two-way audio. And you can view them online.
Clinton wants to know if there's a way to report his location when traveling without the use of a smartphone? Leo says that there are Personal Location Beacon (PLB) and Satellite Messengers. Satellite Messengers do require a subscription though. They connect via satellite, and you can set it up to contact anyone in the event of an emergency. But if you have an iPhone or an Android device with vs. 11, you can send an emergency call by pressing the on/off switch five times in quick succession.
Sam Abuelsamid joins Leo to talk about digital voice assistants in our cars. Systems get smarter by listening to samples of recordings and learning the context. So putting a DVA into your car would mean that it would be listening to you as you drive. That's how the AI gets trained.
Ken needs to replace his ASUS WiFi Router. He likes the router, but he was thinking about getting a Ubiquity model to handle the WiFi. Leo says you'll have to put it in bridge mode, but it would work as long as ASUS continues to update the router.
August wants to get his parents a digital photo frame that he can change remotely from time to time. Leo's favourite right now is the Google NEST Hub. Not only does he get a nice photo frame that loads them remotely from Google Photos, but it also features a Google Voice Assistant. And it's only $99.
Dickie D picked up the "Hydra Light," from "As Seen on TV." Here's a bit of the hype on Amazon: ACTIVATED BY WATER: Hydralight 2 in 1 doesn’t need any electric battery to charge, it runs on water and no specific type of water is required to run hydralight, any kind of water: Regular, Distilled or salt will do the job, 2 IN 1 Design: You don’t have to buy both flashlight and lantern separately. Hydralight becomes flashlight and lantern. Just dip the fuel cell for 10 to 12 sec in water, shake it off, and then we're set to go, with up to 100 continuous hours on a single water dip.
