    I was wondering of anyone else had run into any issues with the Flex Motion Sensor. I had to return a couple because they were intermittent and now I just had one get stuck "on" … 4 Days! I really like the form factor as it gives me a clean solution for seniors and no batteries to worry about One small problem is that it takes 40 seconds after it detects motion and the motion is gone before it can detect again, unlike the SmartThings motion sensor which is ready in 15 seconds after loss of motion

    Looks like the smarthome is coming to the car finally 😁 https://www.engadget.com/2020/01/09/samsung-smartthings-smartcar-app/ Anyone who saw my smart home video (17mins 50secs) with Brian will know just how much I want this sort of integration!

    I asked my Samsung Developer Support contacts for one and they say they have no information... Just like the Galaxy Home Mini speaker that I keep asking about. There is a lot of interest in Ballie in the Bixby Developer group, although we didn't see any direct mention of Bixby... but Samsung has promised to put it in all their devices. As a long-time proponent of personal assistant robots for seniors, I have looked at quite a few and even bought some. The closet to Ballie is the bowling ball sized one from LG in 2016 that never materialized. https://www.engadget.com/2016/02/21/lg-g5-friends-vr-headset-rolling-bot/?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZW5nYWRnZXQuY29tLzIwMjAvMDEvMDYvc2Ftc3VuZy1yb2JvdC1iYWxsaWUtc21hcnQtaG9tZS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAACpZS2FEb0OPipVOmjO63x2HKV4BnAI52d1HuWGxgRYgZVVS0AtpktYTSTjlrff2PFnX52gvffwFDnMH2oaUTrIIK8pMqeq_pO2T2vkdpZaC8FiG6waXNg0A3zsDe27Q2Z6cKyq3vLTu_kBuHE38jjYLdhR7n3Ia6tDEAVO1xn6P Does anyone remember the ASUS Zenbo? … never happened https://www.engadget.com/2016/02/21/lg-g5-friends-vr-headset-rolling-bot/?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZW5nYWRnZXQuY29tLzIwMjAvMDEvMDYvc2Ftc3VuZy1yb2JvdC1iYWxsaWUtc21hcnQtaG9tZS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAACpZS2FEb0OPipVOmjO63x2HKV4BnAI52d1HuWGxgRYgZVVS0AtpktYTSTjlrff2PFnX52gvffwFDnMH2oaUTrIIK8pMqeq_pO2T2vkdpZaC8FiG6waXNg0A3zsDe27Q2Z6cKyq3vLTu_kBuHE38jjYLdhR7n3Ia6tDEAVO1xn6P Anyway, I'm interested in your Use Case ideas for a Senior Companion Robot... please share them I personally have been testing Segway Loomo https://store.segway.com/segway-loomo-mini-transporter-robot-sidekick?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4ZK85uL25gIVhsDACh0DdAz1EAAYAiAAEgJBgfD_BwE and Kuri … gone out of business... similar to Ballie as it just "chirps" http://heykuri.com/explore-kuri/ and Temi https://www.robotemi.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7b63t-L25gIVgcBkCh2bQQyPEAAYASAAEgI2q_D_BwE Frank

    Hi Brian, Thanks for the link and the referral. I have been playing around with a few VR headsets now and come to conclusion that the type where you put your phone into it is too much of a setup process for my "clients" . I did see a video on where someone was going to try to make this a business where they would go into nursing homes and setup an "event" to handle the setup and demo and charge a monthly fee https://youtu.be/h4AnJhAYWdQ I've been searching for a full list of Google Assistant voice commands that you can speak when using YouTube. I'm trying to make this as simple as possible with having the users manage a hand-held " control. One if my first discoveries is that the videos want to move your head or body around quite a bit for a good view of the surroundings.... 180 degrees! There seems to be no control of the viewing position like there is on a PC where you can adjust the viewing "zero-degree" position. What I mean is the normal view position could have you looking right into the face of the person making the video rather than what they are trying to show you unless you stand up and turn around 180 degrees
