    Exactly. It appeared to me that I would set up both smart plugs using different networks and passwords and linked to my amazon account. Then it should be simple to group them and apply a command. ...
  3. Amazon smart plugs on different networks

    Let’s say that I have two houses miles apart. I want to use amazon smart control lights in both places with a single command. It seems like this would work but I haven’t found anything explicit.

    Ole, I don’t consider it a grudge. It’s just a reason to choose another store. I had my own bad experience with Sears and it opened my eyes to better stores that I had always ignored because I grew...

    Dave,
    I'm a big fan of the encoder knob. Our microwave is really easy to use.

    There's an "add 30 seconds" button. I push that to get cooking started. Then there is a knob that I can use to...

    I just bought some SYP treated lumber from Home Depot to rebuild part of a playset. It was soaked so I stickered it in my basement and ran a fan on it for a month. I've read that you can buy...

    That 8" jointer seems like it's in a better league than the planer. I would go for the planer. I got rid of a lunchbox for a 15" Powermatic with helical head. Big improvement. Someday I may...

    I don't think there is any issue with dust in the DRO. I have a DRO mounted under my router table and it's worked fine for years.
