Blue is the colour most commonly associated with harmony, faithfulness, confidence, distance, infinity, the imagination, cold, and sadness.
In U.S. and European public opinion polls it is chosen by almost half of both men and women as their favourite colour.
I have my bedroom lights plugged into a D-Link wifi outlet (controlled through an app on my HTC One M8). I want to either set an automatic command to turn them on when I connect to my home Wifi, or create a Google Now voice command that turns them on. I can't do that through the D-Link app itself, so I essentially need something that will turn the lights on through the app automatically.
Is this even possible? I've looked into Tasker but it's way over my head. Any suggestions?
Last week when we talked about Google's upcoming MVNO deal with T-Mobile and Sprint, I speculated that Google would 'Googlify' their offering to differentiate themselves from the likes of other MVNO's by utilizing both T-Mobile's and Sprint's network without the need to swap SIM cards. According to the latest info on the matter Google will utilize technology that can measure the quality of networks in your area — including any available WiFi hotspots — and hop onto the best one. This is great news for those that live in areas with mixed quality of coverage from both carriers. Unless you live in an area with zero coverage from Sprint or T-Mobile, like me.

So it just occurred to us that we should probably put up a small gate on our back porch, to keep the neighbor's kids from wandering onto our porch and falling into the pool this summer (because that would be terrible).
The issue here is that we have a dog who goes on and off the porch regularly, so we need to set up a gate of some kind that'll open for the dog, but not for other people. I was thinking of some kind of locking system that works with a sensor that we could put on her collar, but I can't seem to really find anything. We could get an automatic dog door that works the same way, but this gate will be outdoors and I'm worried they won't stand up to the weather.
So with that in mind.... Any ideas? This is something we'd really love to have finished by the time we open the pool for the summer (in about a month or two).
