Are you an Apple Watch Owner? Add one more app to your available list.

This is the smart home hub I've picked. Mostly because it was super easy to setup piece mail and the app is clean and intuitive for my family to use. Plus it supports geofencing and sunrise / sunset triggers. 
We’ve long strived to bring easy access and control of your smart home right to your fingertips, whether that’s through the Wink app on your mobile phone or the Wink Relay control panel. Today, we’re excited to add another touchpoint with the Wink Apple Watch app. Bringing your Wink smart home to your wrist is simple. Just open the Apple Watch app on your phone, scroll and select Wink and switch the toggle to “Show on Apple Watch.” F...

it is July 29th, and I have not seen any headlines on this... Can anybody confirm they received a KNOX update as Sammy claimed would be available?
 
Samsung claimed they could quickly fix this keyboard bug using KNOX. Soooo.. Knock knock... Anybody gotten an update?
Samsung's security vulnerability highlights a bigger problem throughout the Android ecosystem: bloatware.

So The Honeywell Lyric is supposed to be one of the HomeKit partners. I'm jumping on this product instead of the ecobee. I'll see how well it goes.

+Myron Uecker +Stan Bentley the installation and setup of the app was easy and straight forward.  the one odd thing was I have an RH wire, and there was no clear place on the Lyric to connect it to.

I called tech service, where I was immediately connected to a human (ymmv).  it was neat that I didn't have a need for jumpers or otherwise, my 4wire setup works simply by plugging in the RH wire into the R connector.

so in less than 30 minutes (which includes me taking pictures and my tech support call) I was all done and playing with the app.

Google: All Your Photos belongs to us!

Google Photos For Android Continues Uploading Your Stuff Even When App Is Deleted
It's natural to assume that once you've deleted an app from your Android device, the functionality contained within it will cease to exist as well. However, it would appear that in some instances, namely when Google Photos is involved, merely making the conscious decision to remove the app from your phone or tablet is not enough to prevent the search engine giant from receiving uploads of your treasured Android device's photos / videos and storin...

I don't think it's properly communicated. If you choose to use the service through an app, the expectation is that the app is performing the work. Or at least validating your request on your behalf. However, with Google services,the OS continues to perform the service on your behalf. And at this point there is no further Control by the user on how his photos should be managed.

This would be an ultimate handheld gaming machine.
We don't normally find ourselves getting worked up over device concept renders. Sure, they can be fun. But more than often they're little more than a tease meant to give us Android blue balls. Nobody likes that. But this Nintendo Smart Boy concept has us wondering what could have been...

+Z Vaper after looking at both products, the two outliers for me were the built-in geofence option of the Lyric, and it's promise to support Apple Home Kit integration.

no knock on Nest, I know you can sort of get geofence like triggers by leveraging ifttt.  but it's not the same, When you setup your family, the Lyric is able to trigger the home comfort configuration when anyone of your family triggers the geofence.  like-wise, last to leave the home also triggers the geofence so you are not cooling/heating an empty house.

+Jamaar DeBoise so far I'm really liking the Lyric Thermostat.  It's ease of use is dead simple.  GeoFencing works just as expected, turning on and off the thermostat when family members arrive and leave as needed. 

I haven't setup any type of schedule but it's been warm here so the fan running is great to help keep things cool.  otherwise the shortcuts in the app to help set desired settings at different times is great.  There is no multi-room monitor like the ecobee, but so far that is not a problem (or was a problem before).
