Bluetooth iPhone and Android Tempo Monitor By BlueMaestro
A while back we featured the Blue Maestro Tempo Monitor. Today, we’re back with news from Blue Maestro – they upgraded both the monitoring device as well as their mobile apps, making them even cooler!
For first, the monitoring device, which used to track only temperature, now also tracks barometric pressure stats as well as humidity info. On the software side, both Android and iOs apps got redesigned, making user interaction even easier.

The upgraded Tempo Monitor connects to your devices via low energy Bluetooth 4.0 and iBeacon for iOs gadgets, works up to 165ft (that’s 50 meters) distance, is water and weather proof (which makes in a perfect choice if you want to track outdoors stats), stores historical data for the last 30 days, allows temperature alerts triggered by high and low thresholds and has a battery life of around 12 months.

What I really liked about the Tempo is how simple the setup process is. Simply instal the free iPhone or Android app, turn on the monitor and wait a couple of second for it to automatically connect. That’s it, after a couple of seconds, the barometric pressure, temperature and humidity data starts to download on your phone and displays on the main dashboard.
The Tempo Monitor works locally via Bluetooth and, because of this, does not need to be hooked up to your wireless or wired internet network. Another cool feature is that the unit continues to monitor and track the setup parameters even if you’re not around, allowing you to download the recorded data as soon as you get into the Bluetooth range of the device. Available in white, black, gray and pebble (marble).
Cool, isn’t it? Check out the review video bellow and let me know your thoughts in the comments bellow.

Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home Remote Controller
As technology advances with big steps and everyday hundreds and thousands of new gadgets are released to the market to make our lives easier, there was time somebody took a closer look at the good old remote controller and bring it into the 21st century!

Don’t get me wrong! There were other remote controllers too that got upgraded to the digital world (take for example the Logitech Harmony Touch), but can we really consider them Smart?

Logitech’s news lines of Harmony remote controls, the Harmony Ultimate Home, not only allows you to control all your media devices from one single controller, but also helps you control your entire home while you’re lying on the couch enjoying our favorite show.

The Harmony Ultimate Home control kit syncs with your iPhone or Android device via Bluetooth 4.0 and allows you to control your home automation system via the free iOs and Android Logitech apps. On the other end, the smart controller connects to various devices in your house using infrared (IR), Bluetooth or Wi-Fi wireless signal allowing you to control all your home automation as well as media devices from one master remote.
Another cool option worth mentioning is the possibility of creating user defined macros (recording and replaying a suite of actions by only touching one button). Let’s say for example that your regular routing for watching a movie is: close the window, dim the light, extend the couch, turn on the TV and the media player, set the picture and audio modes to Movie and set the starting volume to 57. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home allows your to record all these actions and re-do them by simply hitting the assigned command button (of course, we assume that your home automation system already allows you to automate all these actions). Cool, isn’t it?

Revocharge Wireless Charging Pack For iPhone And Android Smartphones
With smartphones getting bigger, more powerful and more energy hungry every day, we welcome any new gadgets that promise to solve this issue and offer an increased battery life … at least so we can finish the day on one charge!

Revocharge is a new multifunctional breed of smartphone case which promises increased power resources for iPhone and select Android devices by combining good old phone case protection with wireless charging and an extended battery to make your life easier!
Here’s how it works – the main element is the smartphone case. It’s lightweight, only 13.4mm thin, made of strong polycarbonate material and offers access to all native buttons and ports. The case sports a wireless charging receiver which can be hooked to a desktop charger or a car mount and wirelessly charges your devices. This is where it becomes interesting – the smart case also comes with a removable magnetic extended battery which ads 2,000 mAh or 3,000 mAh (depending on the model) to your phone’s battery. If you’re not sure what this means – the iPhone battery has 1,440Mah – so the Revocarge doubles and more an iPhone’s endurance!

ALSO CHECK the Air Dock Wireless Car Charger Holder For Smartphones and the iQi Mobile – iPhone Wireless Charging On The Cheap.

Another cool thing – you don’t have to always use the extended battery (it adds some bulk to the case), you can leave it in your car or have it in your pocket or bag and only use it when you’re close to be out of power!

The Revocharge available for iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, Samsung Note 3/4, HTC ONE M8, Galaxy S4/S5 and it is in project mode at Kickstarter, it reached its funding cap and you can get a one for an early bird price of $49 ($50 less than what it will retail for).
