Spot AI raises $40M to build smarter CCTV security camera tech

September 04, 2023    by Ingrid Lunden

CCTV and other kinds of security cameras have a strong Big Brother vibe, but for many of us that may be because we don’t really understand or know how the footage they pick up ever gets used. Today, a startup called Spot AI that’s built a system to help answer that question at least in part — it provides a cloud-based analytics system that “reads” that footage to get insights about not just security, but also safety and operational activity — is announcing $40 million in funding to grow.

About 50 percent of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices will connect using wireless technology. That leaves 50 percent connecting by wire/cable. Two challenges arise when considering cable based IoT. First it is likely that there will be a large number of IoT devices to connect to LAN switches, so there will be many LAN switch ports required. Secondly, the devices will probably be further away from the network closets (LAN switch location). If you are using standard Ethernet cable (category 5 or higher) the cable is limited to about 330 feet (100 meters) length. There are five possible solutions available to the distance challenge beyond 300 feet.

Cell Phone Booster Units – What They Are and What they Can and Can’t Do

July 14, 2020    by David Rowell

Signal boosters can’t work miracles, although, at times, it might seem like they are. They can help improve weak signals, potentially increasing the coverage area when you’re in areas of marginal signal coverage, and their improved quality signals often translate to dramatically faster data speeds. If you’re unaware of any limitations or challenges with your phone, then there’s no point in getting one. But if your phone is often dropping calls, and if your data speeds are terribly slow, you should first use a signal measurement app to see if you have good or poor signal strength. If the signal strength is good, then it is unlikely a booster will help. If it is poor, a booster might dramatically improve your connection. Several different companies manufacture cell phone signal boosters. Wilson Electronics is a well respected American company and we have tested one of their weBoost units, reviewed here. We can’t speak for other brands, but you do have choices, including SolidRF and SureCall. If/when choosing a signal boosting unit, make sure it supports the wireless network and frequency bands that your phone supports.
