  1. I'd like some feedback on the assessment I'm doing on video doorbells for the elderly or mobility challenged. Please let me know if I'm missing something, especially on the Google side -------------------------- As of the date of this report, the two main players in the home video doorbell market Google and Amazon, offer solutions that may fall short of the expectations of an elderly person with mobility or cognitive issues. The ideal video doorbell solution would present a video image of a person at the door to the elder who remains seated at their normal location, without having to get up nor having to speak any command. The video image should be triggerable by a doorbell press OR the motion of a person at the door. The ability to provide a verbal or canned message response back to the person at the door is also desirable Notes: *1- Uses Google Assistant through Google Home on mobile phone via Chromecast with voice “Show front door on living room TV” https://youtu.be/JhuEiMFMfuk *2- The customization message requires the creation of a simple DIY Alexa Routine. This could include useful verbal personal guidance such as: “Grandpa, there is someone at the door. Please check the camera, before opening the door” … verses a canned message “There is someone at the door” https://youtu.be/xBJDceRH4rQ *3 – The workaround consists of using an Echo Dot to “speak” the Alexa command to the Fire TV Cube, or to an Echo Show if it is “linked” to the Fire TV Cube https://www.amazonforum.com/s/question/0D54P00006zSxMLSA0/did-you-ever-wish-that-your-ring-doorbell-video-would-automatically-display-on-your-echo-show This will even pause the TV show being played *4- The Samsung QLED TV will display the doorbell video, but does not allow any interaction with it
  2. My Nest Hello Doorbell will display video on my Google hub when someone pushes the button. 1. Is there a way to get it to do that based on motion detection? 2. Is there a way to get motion event or even the button push, to turn on a smart plug?
  3. What are people's thoughts? One of the best WiFi 5 routers? How do you connect a Hue hub and SmartThings hub at the same time? Is Wi-Fi 6 really worth it for the average smart home guy?
  4. Hey Community, Hone Depot Canada is having a long weekend sale in Google Home/Nest products. https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/categories/all/events/labour-day/smart-home.html?intid=CLP_H1_190829_SmartHome_LongWeekendEventSmartHomeSavings_EN
