POMPANO BEACH, Florida. – Alarms, security devices and cameras did nothing to stop a pair of thieves from stealing a trailer with thousands of dollars worth of tools from a local contractor in Pompano Beach.

The brazen heist happened on Saturday morning outside an industrial warehouse near Powerline Road and Copans Road.

The thieves took their time, even using a grinder to remove the trailer hitch lock, sending sparks flying.

All the while, an automated message from the motion camera system kept ringing: “Hi! You are currently registered.

The contractor, who asked to remain anonymous, said he parked his loaded trailers outside the warehouse ahead of a big commercial job in Palm Beach County.

The crooks stole the new trailer, worth about $4,500, with thousands of dollars worth of power and hand tools inside.

“Basically anything and everything I would need for the job,” the entrepreneur said.

Cameras caught the duo in a white two-door van.

Do you own a new LG TV model from 2018 or newer? If so, you’ll probably be pleased to know that you can get started with Apple HomeKit, even if you haven’t purchased any HomeKit accessories. That’s right, you can control much of your TV’s operation with HomeKit on your iPhone or iPad.

Smart TVs have gained some very exciting features over the past few years and thanks to their popularity, TV makers are partnering with Apple to bring features like AirPlay 2 and HomeKit to specific models. To use all of HomeKit’s features, you’ll usually need a home hub like a HomePod, Apple TV, or even just an iPad, but once you’ve set it up, you can use Siri to turn your TV on/off and even automate its operation with the Home application.

If you have a relatively new model of LG TV (from 2018) or many other smart TVs, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s pretty easy to set up.

How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG TV

Before proceeding with the next procedure, make sure that your TV and the Apple device you are using to set up HomeKit are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Next, you need to check if your TV is running the latest firmware since adding AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support via software update on older models. Once you are done, just follow the steps below:

  1. First, turn on your LG TV and press the Home button on your remote. This will bring up the webOS menu that appears at the bottom with a row of apps and input sources. Here; you will find the AirPlay function. Select it.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

  2. This will bring up the AirPlay menu. Here, choose the “AirPlay and HomeKit Settings” option to continue.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

  3. In this step, HomeKit and AirPlay settings will be displayed. Choose the “Home” option located under HomeKit as shown in the screenshot below.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

  4. Now your LG TV will show the HomeKit QR code so you can add it as a HomeKit accessory.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

  5. To scan this code, you will need to open the Home app on your iPhone or iPad. Tap the “+” icon located in the upper left corner of your screen to access more options.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

  6. Then choose “Add Accessory” from the pop-up menu to go to the next step.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

  7. The Home app will show the QR code scanner. Simply point the camera at the code displayed on your TV.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

  8. The Home app should successfully detect your TV within seconds. Now just tap “Add to Home” and you’re pretty much done.

    How to Set Up HomeKit on an LG OLED TV

This was basically the initial setup. Your LG TV will now be listed under your favorite accessories in the Home app.

If the Home app QR code scanner fails to scan the code displayed on your TV, you still have other options to complete the pairing process. You can manually enter the 8-digit setup code which is written next to the actual QR code by selecting the “I don’t have a code or I can’t scan” option in the Home app. Keep in mind that both devices must be connected to the same network to complete the pairing process.

Once set up, you’ll be able to turn your LG TV on or off from the Home app, and if you have a Home hub, you can ask Siri to turn it on by saying “Hey Siri, turn on the TV.” You’ll be able to switch between different input sources or even access your TV settings with just a long press on your TV from the Home app.

Since you want to try HomeKit with the TV, you can also check how you can get AirPlay 2 to work on your LG TV as well. It’s actually quite easy and you won’t have any problems using it, especially if you’ve used AirPlay devices in the past. Note that AirPlay 2 and HomeKit are only available on a select a range of 2018 and newer LG TVs. To make sure your model is compatible, you can check out this list of supported TVs.

We hope you were able to get a taste of what Apple HomeKit is capable of without even having to purchase a separate accessory. Did you find the features interesting enough to invest in HomeKit accessories down the line? Share your experiences and drop your valuable thoughts in the comments section below.

Samsung’s new 200MP HM3 camera sensor has the world’s smallest pixels https://link1-2-3.com/samsungs-new-200mp-hm3-camera-sensor-has-the-worlds-smallest-pixels/ Thu, 23 Jun 2022 17:30:03 +0000 https://link1-2-3.com/samsungs-new-200mp-hm3-camera-sensor-has-the-worlds-smallest-pixels/ Samsung has announcement the ISOCELL HP3, a 200-megapixel image sensor with 12% smaller pixels, which can result in a 20% reduction in camera module area.

Samsung has announcement the ISOCELL HP3, a 200-megapixel image sensor with 12% smaller pixels, which can result in a 20% reduction in camera module area. It features what Samsung claims is the smallest 0.56μm pixel in the industry.

The ISOCELL HP3 packs the small 0.56μm pixel size into a 1/1.4 inch optical format, which is the diameter of the area captured through the camera lens. Samsung says this means the HP3 can enable around a 20% reduction in camera module area and enable manufacturers to make high-end devices slimmer.

As well as keeping the HP1’s 200-megapixel resolution and making it smaller (the HP1 features a pixel size of 0.64μm), Samsung says it uses the company’s Super QPD autofocus solution. which he says equips every pixel of the sensor with autofocus capabilities. Super QPD uses a single lens on four adjacent pixels to detect phase differences in the horizontal and vertical directions, which the company says enables faster and more accurate focusing on smartphones.

Samsung says the sensor will allow users to shoot 8K video at 30 frames per second (fps) or 4K video at 120fps with minimal loss in field of view when shooting 8K video.

However, the sensor is not only smaller and more precise. Samsung claims it also provides the “ultimate” low-light experience through its Tetra2pixel technology. The company describes it as combining four pixels into one to turn the 0.56μm 20-megapixel sensor into a 1.12μm 50-megapixel sensor, or even lower down to a 12.5-megapixel sensor with 2.24μm pixels by combining 16 pixels in one.

The HP3 also uses Samsung’s Smart-ISO Pro, which merges image information from both low and high ISO mode conversion gains to create HDR images. This latest version of the technology has a “triple ISO” mode – low, medium and high – which Samsung says further expands the dynamic range of the sensor.

Samsung claims the improved Smart-ISO Pro allows the sensor to express images in over four trillion colors (14-bit color depth), 64 times more colors than the predecessor’s 68 billion (12-bit). Plus, by supporting scaled HDR with Smart-ISO Pro, the ISOCELL HP3 can switch between the two solutions depending on the environment to produce high-quality HDR images.

These technologies also existed in the HP1, but their inclusion and even capacity expansion indicate that Samsung believes it has managed to reduce sensor size without compromising the other features that make its sensors popular.

Mass production of the ISOCELL HP3 is expected to begin later this year.

What do you want to know

  • For years, the standard and “Plus” variants of Samsung flagships have used 10MP selfie cameras.
  • A new rumor indicates that Samsung may finally upgrade the camera to a higher 12MP resolution.
  • It’s unclear if these sensors will be hidden under the screen or if they will include OIS.

We’ve already heard that Samsung may be upgrading the rear camera on at least one of its flagship smartphones next year, but a new rumor is giving information about the front camera.

According GalaxyClub, the standard Galaxy S23 and S23+ may receive a small bump in resolution for the selfie camera, bringing them up to 12MP. That would be an increase from the 10MP sensor used in the base and Plus flagship models since the Galaxy S10. It also puts the resolution on par with some of the best Android phones and even recent iPhones.

When smoke from a routine pile burning in Keystone billowed into the sky on Saturday, May 7, residents were able to get a sense of the situation from webcams positioned around Keystone Resort. The cameras are meant to inform skiers of weather conditions before heading out for a day on the slopes, but on Saturday they served a different purpose: curious members of the community got a closer look at the smoky situation.

Live-streaming devices like Keystone webcams could one day become standard equipment for spotting fires before they rage and spread across the county. The federal government has earmarked $10 million for the purchase and placement of real-time monitoring equipment for wildfires under the enacted Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act November 15, 2021.

The act grants the U.S. Secretary of the Interior and Secretary of Agriculture, who oversee the U.S. Forest Service, and in turn the Dillon Ranger District, the ability to purchase real-time monitoring equipment such as sensors and cameras. Additionally, the law sets aside $20 million for the Forest Service to enter into an agreement with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to use its satellite program for wildfire detection.

The law states that monitoring equipment would be placed in high-risk areas or post-burn areas. Summit County does not yet have such equipment, although Colorado Department of Transportation cameras along state highways have been used before.

Camera technology is new to Colorado, says Forest firefighting projects Director Brad Schmidt at the Center of Excellence for Advanced Technology in Aerial Firefighting. The Center of Excellence and the US Forest Service only began deploying cameras at fixed sites in 2021, and only a small handful exist across the state as part of a pilot project, it said. -he declares. California began exploring the technology in the early 2000s and has thousands of cameras positioned across the state, he said. They can be positioned on radio towers and other high vantage points to see as much of the landscape as possible.

The center’s research involves pan-tilt-zoom cameras, capable of rotating 360 degrees and zooming in on targets miles away. Some companies have explored AI fire detection capabilities – and the Aspen Fire Protection District was part of those pilot programs — but the technology is new and capable of confusing smoke with clouds, Schmidt said. However, when used correctly, three or more cameras working together can identify smoke, triangulate the position of a fire, and help notify the appropriate fire protection district.

The main advantage of cameras in fighting wildfires is the ability to get your eyes on a fire, Schmidt said. He said that with dispatchers receiving multiple 911 calls sometimes containing conflicting reports, the ability to see a fire from his office is a huge advantage. It removes the ambiguity.

In the White River National Forest, most detections come from public reports via 911, patrolling ground crews and scheduled aerial reconnaissance, David Boyd said. The US Forest Service will send patrols when and where it expects a high likelihood of ignition. Incoming thunderstorms are one example, Boyd said. Patrols will venture on foot to a high vantage point or strategic vantage point to try to spot the smoke. Aerial reconnaissance teams can support them from helicopters and manned aircraft.

Unfortunately, lightning fires can smolder nearly smokeless for days after a storm, Boyd said. Patrols may need to monitor an area for days after a storm.

At this time, White River National Forest officials are unaware of plans to add real-time monitoring equipment. Schmidt also wasn’t sure when Colorado would implement the technology on a large scale. Other driver programs are likely and other issues need to be resolved. The law does not have a specific timetable, although the funds allocated are planned for the financial years 2022 to 2026.

Wyze sells some of the most popular smart home devices, including the Wyze Cam series. The company hosted an Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) on Reddit earlier today, revealing some details about the company’s upcoming projects.

Regardless of existing products

There’s been excitement around the upcoming “Matter” smart home ecosystem, which aims to unify and simplify tools for setting up and managing smart home products. The end goal is for any Matter-certified device to work with all other Matter-enabled hubs and devices, eliminating the compatibility headaches that exist today.

However, Wyze does not expect to bring Matter support to its existing products. Asked about updating Wyze devices to work with Matter, Wyze VP of Products Steve McIrvin said today in a Reddit comment: “It’s unlikely due to security requirements. running both the Wyze firmware stack and a Matter compatible firmware image. We have followed several paths in this strategy and the most likely scenario is that we will have to introduce new products with higher resource limits high (especially flash memory and RAM) to support Matter.

The company is also still exploring how to integrate its cameras into the Matter ecosystem. McIrvin said: “The biggest hurdle for us, as you might have guessed, is that there is no definition for cameras in the Matter guidelines yet. It’s not one of the two dozen categories they’ve yet defined. There is a working group that has just been formed, so we intend to participate in it.

Upcoming Products

Wyze has released new products at a rapid pace over the past few years, so it’s not too surprising that the company has more on the way. The first is a Matter-enabled product, which will be available “in a few months”, but it’s unclear what type of device it will be.

Steve McIrvin also confirmed that a smart light switch is in the works that won’t require a neutral wire. Smart switches are a popular way to add smart controls to light fixtures, especially where smart bulbs aren’t practical, but they usually require a neutral wire in the wall for the power supply, which many houses do not have. McIrvin said on Reddit, “A large percentage of homes in the United States were built before neutral wiring was needed, so we’ll have a pretty innovative solution to address those homes in the next few months (certainly before the end of the year). ‘year). “

other information

The most voted question in the AMA was about the status of Wyze RTSP Firmware, which was beta software that allowed Wyze cameras to be monitored using industry-standard Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), instead of on-premises or cloud-based proprietary solutions. Steve McIrvin said: “The reason we removed it was that we weren’t able to keep it fully in sync with the changes we deployed to the rest of our firmware images. We have no intention of republishing this image at this time.

RTSP was a way to monitor Wyze camera feeds from a desktop or laptop (without running the Android app in a virtual machine). Wyze is working on an official web viewer for camerasand the company confirmed in the AMA that it is currently working on Firefox support and other improvements.

Nostalgia hit hard when in May of this year Apple announced the death of the iconic Apple iPod. People posted pictures of their old iPods and remembered that the device was their permanent accessory and a status symbol when it came to music trends and gadgets at the time. However, as fashion is enjoying a revival from time to time, some of these gadgets are also back in shape, perhaps with better and advanced technologies.

Music player

Walkman was a portable audio tape recorder and player. The Sony Walkman became very popular in the late 1970s. Sony had launched the Walkman audio cassette player in 1979 and sold thousands of tape devices. As older models were discontinued, Sony reinvented its Walkman and relaunched the model as A100 Walkman A Series equipped with modern features such as Android and Wi-Fi compatibility and digital noise cancellation. It also offers basic versions of the Walkman starting at Rs 4,000 and going up to Rs 25,000. The design of the Walkman has been changed to suit a modern style and looks a bit like an iPod. The device also comes with an HD touchscreen and high battery life.

Polaroids

Instant cameras were widely used and were popular in the middle of the 20th century. They were first developed by Polaroid Corporation and then a number of other manufacturers followed to release their products. In 2008, the cameras were shut down and production was halted. The following year, the company was acquired by PLR IP Holdings LLC which now markets the Fuji Instax instant camera among other portable products. Today, Fujifilm has launched various colors in the Instax Mini camera line. From kitten shapes to square patterns and a range of neutral colors, the Instax camera is all the rage among young consumers and is priced between Rs 3,000 and Rs 14,000.

Blackberry

Blackberry first launched its mobile device in 1999 as a two-way pager. Since then, Blackberry devices have seen innovation, better design, highs and eventual death. Blackberry’s mobiles like Pearl, Curve Bold and many others sold widely in the second half of 2000s.
