DVR Backup

A new trend that has been happening lately, to home DVR systems, is that criminals have gotten smarter and started stealing the DVR when they break into a home or business, and all evidence recorded by the cameras is now gone.

So, what do you do to protect yourself?

This problem has been around for quite some time but most people don’t really do anything about it until disaster strikes them in some way.

Many things can and will happen to data on computer storage devices, DVR, etc and there are a few things you should do to protect yourself.

The number one thing you need to do to truly protect yourself is to store the data off-site to another location, and it needs to be a real-time backup, not once a day, or some other scheduled time. This is especially true for security cameras because data backed up even only moments ago may not provide the evidence you need to catch the thieves.

The new terminology that you will hear that provides this is called “Cloud Storage”. This is the most secure method of backing up your data to a location that you can access from anywhere in case of disaster.

There are of course many more choices and methods of backing up your data which I do not want to overwhelm you with here. Using an off-site location such as this, is the simplest and cheapest way to provide real-time backups, and all that is needed to get started is to sign-up for a monthly or yearly plan that provide enough storage for the data that is important to you.

These services rely on an internet connection to work and there are minimum recommended speeds that your service should be at. More information and sign-up here

Augmented Reality

Wikipedia explains Augmented Reality like this.
Augmented reality (AR) is a live, copy, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality.[1] By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one.[2][3] Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match. With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable. Artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the real world.

Here are some cool examples of this technology in action.

I found it interesting that this app shows a picture of an iPhone, but the app is only for the Android devices?

Want to try a cool one of these yourself? Download he Free Blippar App and then scan this image and watch it come to life!




Always experimenting with new ways of displaying content on websites. Used Crazytalk to create a short animation of my Pooch named “Cujo” – Actually he is my sisters pooch, but I like to think he is mine.

I think he does a great job and we will see more of him for sure!

WiFi HotSpots

Benefits of Hosting a Wi-Fi Hotspot

People need and in fact demand internet access everywhere now, and providing free Wi-Fi access at your place can help you attract more customers and generate extra revenue for your business in a couple of ways. You can advertise your own products and services or charge for ads for other products and services.

Attract People to Your Location

Hosting a Wi-Fi hotspot, in any type of business, will help you attract new people to your place and entice them to return and stay longer. For some stores, this access helps fill empty seats. For businesses such as hotels, having Wi-Fi Internet access available for guests is essential to prevent losing potential customers.

As discussed earlier, people find hotspots in many ways, including these:

  • Online directories
  • Software directories
  • Display signs
  • Wi-Fi finders
  • Laptop/PDAs

WiFi HotSpots

You should advertise your Hotspot both locally and online in places such as universal directories that list any hotspot, free or fee-based.

The best way to attract users to your hotspot is to display signs advertising that you have a hotspot at your place. These signs could simply say “Wi-Fi Hotspot Here” or “Wireless Internet Access Available.”

Reasons Why You Should Install Security Cameras

There are a few reasons why you should install security cameras in your home or business. Many people install them for greatest protection and security.  One reason you should install these cameras is to give constant monitoring of an area that you are protecting.  Since it’s impossible to be in two places at one time, these cameras will surely help you.  If you travel a lot, this is a great idea because you won’t be home all the time, but you will still be able to keep an eye on your home from a distance. Security cameras can also provide extra protection and security.  If you decide to install a home alarm system, you will be able to see who’s at your front door and decide not to answer if you don’t want to.  It really doesn’t matter where you live because personal safety is always important. In the event that someone breaks into your home, everything will be caught on camera.  On the same hand, if anything of a serious matter happens, the video will provide real evidence.  By doing this, you may even be able to recover your valuables. For many parents that have to work or would like to go out now and then, they may want to keep an eye on the babysitter.  You may not be accusing anyone of anything, but it gives you piece of mind and enables you to relax while you’re away. If you are installing cameras in your place of business, you will be able to make sure your business is being run properly and you will also be able to keep an eye on your employees.  With this issue, you may also want to invest in video playback or a DVR. Having piece of mind is all that many people want.  Being able to keep an eye on things from wherever you are gives a lot of people comfort and it is also very convenient. Depending upon your needs, some security cameras also come equipped with audio.  When these cameras hit the market, only people who are wealthy could afford such devices, but now everyone can enjoy security and a piece of mind as prices have dropped significantly.  In today’s society, these devices are no longer considered a luxury but more of a necessity. Everyone wants to protect their home and keep their family safe.  Even when everyone is away from home, you still want to be sure that your valuables are safe and in the same place where you left them.

This is just a simple test of an embedded camera feed from my office cam. No image will be shown for security reasons. Also this has been specifically designed to only work when software is running on the computer with the camera, which I have turned off most of the time. I will include plenty of other samples of the various ways these can be used.
