Erin Lawrence with Ring Sensors, Homey Bridge, Ecovacs and Samsung Ultrawide and Curved Monitors from CES 2022 – HGG519

Erin Lawrence from Tech Gadget Canada helps us kick off the new year with some interesting Gadgets coming out of CES 2022! We have a look at the much-awaited glass break sensor from Ring for their Ring Alarm system. We also talk about the new Homey Bridge that will be One Bridge to Rule them all, if it works like they say, it will. We spend a few minutes on Jim’s favorite subject of robot vacuums and talk about the new Ecovacs Deebot X1 Omni Robot vacuum that does it all but at a pretty big price tag. We wrap the show with a Jim must-have Samsung 55-inch Odyssey Ark monitor. With ridiculous curves and the ability to use this monitor in portrait mode, Jim has found his next monitor for sure. Hope he can afford it!

All that and a bit more. Thanks for listening.
