Tech Talk Monday: Making life easier around the house

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tech expert Andy Taylor is in the studio to show us some ways to make things easier around the home!

First is the NETGEAR Powerline 100.

If you have a device that isn't capable of a Wifi Connection - this connects to a power source, and an existing wireless connection.

Then, you can connect a Cat5 cable, and have wireless on that device. It sells for about $70.

The iHome Control Smartplug is a Wifi enabled wall plug.

Plug it in, and control that outlet from your phone.

Use it for lights/lamps, coffee makers, portable heaters, fans, irons, etc.

You can control it through several apps, including Home, which comes with iOS 10.
