FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Mr Beams MB981-WHT-01-00 LED Ceiling Light, 1-Pack, White

I inserted the batteries and tested the light.  I put it in a closet on a wire shelf, I did not even mount it.  I opened the door of the closet and the light turned on.  I closed the door and waited and the light went out. I repeated this several times.  I didn't time it but with no motion it seemed about 2 minutes before the light went out.  This is a good fix for a dark closet with no need to run wires.
From the vendor:
  • The hands-free ceiling light provides 200 lumens of automatic light in areas like closets, showers, sheds, pantries and storage areas.
  • Motion and light sensors ensure the light is only activated when motion is detected in the dark. Auto shut off after 30 seconds of no motion helps prolong battery life.
  • Easy, wireless installation takes less than 5 minutes with the included mounting hardware or double-sided adhesive.
  • Designed to get approximately one year of light on each set of batteries (not included) with average use of 8 activations a night.
  • The unique diffuser on the face of the light creates a pleasing light pattern and balanced coverage

Wsky Smart Plug Software Problems

 Wsky Smart Plug, Mini Outlet with WiFi Repeater Function (2-Pack), No Hub Required, ETL Listed, White, Compatible with Alexa, Google Home and IFTTT
This product is impossible to review as the QR Scan on their illegible “manual” does not install on a Samsung phone.   Samsung or Android I’m not sure which says the site is unreliable and they will not download or install applications from there.  That pretty much limits the review to paperweight status.   However in addition to that frustration is the size of the print in their little folded “manual”.  I have attached photos of the size of the font used in the “manual”.   I just got new bifocals and they work great but not on this.   So my suggestion to the vendor is find out why your software won’t download and increase the size of your font to one that human beings without magnifying glasses can read it.

From the vendor but can not testify to any of it since I never was able to get the software to work.
