Wyze Cam v2 is only $20 and worth every penny!!!

Home security cameras systems have been around for a long time, but more recently, security cameras that connect directly to your WiFi (and therefore the Internet) have become the rage. The great thing about WiFi connected cameras is that you can access their pictures from anywhere, as long as you have an Internet connection. Which means that you can use your smartphone or tablet to view live pictures of your home while you’re away. But the problem is, most of these WiFi camera systems are pricey.

What is 5G and What Does It Mean to Me?

Every January, the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) brings us a plethora of new products and ideas that invigorate the technology world.
