It is also great for those people that are playing fantasy football, as it lets them see each and every game, as well as the ability to watch multiple games at once through split screening.

Buying a Home Alarm System and Making a Smart Investment

Comments Off on Buying a Home Alarm System and Making a Smart Investment 01 October 2014

People who like to save money will not make a purchase unless they know that they are making a smart investment. From buying a pair of new shoes to purchasing a new home, they want to get the best quality for the money that they pay. This said, people who are interested in buying a new alarm system for their home will need to have a thorough understanding of how the different parts of a home alarm monitoring system works prior to making an investment.

Understanding these types of systems does not have to difficult if these are broken down into specific components. By looking at each component separately, the homeowner will have a better understanding of how they work together in order to get the job done effectively.

People who want to make sure that that their families are safe and secure on their own properties will seek to buy the best type of security system on the market today. Because the overall concept and design is to prevent home invasions and robberies from happening, the type of system selected will need to be in place to do this job properly. Therefore, it is important for every homeowner to understand each component of the system that they select so that the areas of the home that can be easily compromised will be protected. Listed below are at least three components of a home alarm system that people should always be familiar with when they make their investments.

Main Control Unit

The main control can be described as the heart of an alarm system. Its primary function is receiving signals from its sensors in order to create an appropriate response. For instance, if a burglar trips the alarm when they enter the property of a homeowner, these sensors will trigger the alarm so the appropriate authorities are notified.


The keypad can be described as part of the control panel. However, based on the manufacturer’s design, the keypad can be separate from its control unit. These pads are normally located at the entry of a front or back door and can be disarmed or engaged whenever needed.


Cameras are another essential part of a home monitoring system since they are responsible for recording specific activities on both the inside and outside of a home. The use of cameras are diverse in nature since some may use alarm  to trigger certain motions that occur. Cameras are used in recording every second of what occurs and they can be viewed later on by placing these tapes in the family’s DVR, specifically in cases where an intruder has attempted to enter the home.

Understanding each component of an alarm system is essential to making a smart investment. When a homeowner understands their needs and how these systems are designed, they can select the system that will meet their specific needs. It is also a must that they hire an alarm monitoring provider like Alarm Relay to monitor and secure their homes 24/7.

How do Magnets Work


How do Magnets Work

Comments Off on How do Magnets Work 11 March 2014

Magnets are fascinating objects that attract to steel, iron, cobalt and nickel. There are many uses for magnets and we see them at work every day. Refrigerators, school lockers and cars carry advertising by way of magnets to thousands of customers each year. Magnets also play a role in creating electricity and are responsible for medical advances such as the MRI or magnetic resonance imaging. What is it that makes a magnet work?

A magnetic field surrounds each magnet. When negatively charged electrons move in a magnet, it creates a force around the magnet and forms a magnetic field. The magnetic fields contain lines of force that exit the north pole of the magnet and enter through the south pole. Opposite poles are attracted to each other, while equal poles repel each other. These lines of force or domains all travel in the same direction in a magnet, while in un-magnetized material the domains point in random directions. This is why opposite poles are attracted and the same pole are repelled. If you break a magnet in two, each half will then have a north and south pole.

Magnetism, gravity and atomic forces – both strong and weak are the four fundamental forces in the universe. Electrical fields and magnetic fields are related.

Magnets made of ceramic or ferric magnets, are not very strong. There are three main types of magnets, permanent magnets, temporary magnets and electromagnets. Magnets that contain rare-earth metals elements in their makeup are much stronger. Listed here in order by the strength of the magnet are four types.

• Ceramic magnets – are a ceramic compound that contains iron oxide.
• Alnico magnets – made of nickel, aluminum and cobalt.
• Neodymium magnets – made from the rare-earth element neodymium, iron and boron.
• Samarium cobalt – this magnet contains cobalt with samarium, the rare-earth element.

Magnets can occur naturally, but scientists have perfected the process of manufacturing them and making them stronger. Lodestone is a naturally magnetized mineral called magnetite but because it is weaker than the manmade magnets, it is not as widely used.

Law enforcement uses a mixture of pigment material and a powder form of magnetic material for fingerprinting. Magnetic powder, when mixed with pigment material, is a good substrate for fingerprinting on porous, rough or grained surfaces. It also works well on plastic films, bags, cardboard, paper, brushed metal and raw wood. It has been the fingerprinting material of choice by many fingerprinting experts for years. Magnetic powder comes in several colors, but the main ones are black, gray, white, red, green and yellow. Other fingerprinting powders would not be as suitable on these surfaces because the coating is too heavy.

Amazingly, we take magnets for granted when common items that we used each day rely so heavily on them. We use them as door closures, in car alternators, in computer hard drives, generating electricity and in medical equipment. So many items rely on magnets that it would be amazing if anyone could list them all.


Shaving, technology

Growth in Shaving Technology

Comments Off on Growth in Shaving Technology 25 June 2013

Grooming is apart of every mans life, no matter what their style of choice or profession may be. Men who choose the clean shaven look nowadays have a variety of great and effective ways to stay well groomed. Cuts and complications are a lot less likely to happen now as the technology used in shaving products has grown substantially. Gone are the days where men needed to use old fashioned razors that needed a razor strop in order to stay sharp. There are many different ways in today’s time that men can use to get a nice clean, close shave. These varieties include clippers, disposable razors, and electric razors.

Clippers are just one of the ways that men can use today to get a shave. They certainly aren’t the best option as most clippers are designed for hair cuts or just general hair maintenance and not shaving; however, they can get the job done when you have no other means. One advantage that the clippers offer is that it is nearly impossible to cut yourself. This however comes with the tradeoff of maybe not getting the closest shave. Because of this reason, you also do not require any shaving cream or protective products. So if you are looking for a nice quick shave, and maybe not the best shave, then clippers are the best option.

Another common way that you can keep shaven is to use disposable razors. These can give a nice close, neat shave when used correctly but they also come with the highest chance of causing cuts. For this reason, you must make sure to use shaving cream or something similar every time that you shave and you must be moderately skilled with the razor. Also make sure to not overuse razors. Razors that become dull have an increased chance of causing cuts. Disposable razors will usually last you through a few uses until they should be thrown out.

Finally there are electric razors. Quite popular nowadays and with good reason as this is the best method that you can use to shave. Electric razors are special because they offer the best of both worlds. That is, they can give you a very nice, clean and smooth shave while at the same time having no risk of cuts. Electric razors are the best of the best and will remain the gold standard in shaving for the foreseeable future.

As you can see, there has certainly been much growth in the world of shaving. Men can now stay well groomed in a variety of different ways and are free to choose the best product based on their specific style. Clippers, disposable and electric razors are a few of the products that can be used to keep shaven and these products will grow as technology grows.
