No Key or Combination Necessary
Master Lock’s Bluetooth Smart Padlock does only one thing, but it does it very well. When you download the app, your smartphone morphs into an electronic ‘key’ for opening your padlock. The app also allows you to give multiple users access to your lock, thus eliminating the hassle of lost keys and forgotten combinations. You can also create a combination for the lock’s key pad for use when the smartphones aren’t on hand. Plus: These theft-prevention ideas are inexpensive and effective.
Add a USB Charger in a Snap
In this electronic age, there seems to be at least one device charging on every single counter and end table in the house. It’s getting difficult to find an unoccupied outlet for antiquated blenders and desk lamps.
Here’s a cool gadget that can help. It’s an outlet cover plate with a built-in USB charger, and it’s as easy to install as a regular cover plate. You just shut down the power, unscrew the old plate and screw on the new one. No receptacle replacement required! The USB port gets its power from two prongs that contact the screws on the sides of the receptacle. These are the best 3 ways to boost cell service in your home.
