Re: What have you just bought?

A Philips Hue Motion Sensor.

Set it up in the kitchen, so when I walk in with hands full they lights turn on and turn off 2 minutes later when I've left.

I just need to tweak the day/night modes and set it so that in the summer the lights wont turn on during the day.

Crikey Hom3r, with the amount of sensors and things you've been buying lately . . . you'll be looking at a Faraday cage next

Well, now you mention it


My car is a keyless start, so I'm looking for a decent box to put the keys in?

Do your keys not have motion sensors built in?

Re: What have you just bought?

I just use a layer of aluminium foil which covers the whole of the inside of a nice wooden box.I also did the same with my wallet. It's a lot cheaper and just as effective.

Of course other more expensive solutions are widely available.

A new car for SWMBO (the final part of her 40th birthday present)

One key goes inside a bag and lives in the safe the other bag hangs up in the kitchen

FIL uses them too for his car

Sadly not.

I do have two pouches, but a box is simple for quick access.

Re: What have you just bought?

Bluetooth earbuds for daughter's unbirthday pressie (for each child's birthday we get the other an unbirthday gift, usually just something small - started so they would have something to unwrap more than any particular gift). Not the best probably but not going to spend what Apple want or any where near that. If she likes the design and wants better quality, her birthday is later in the year.
