The Shed items are publishing / subscribing to MQTT and the Front Light is a WeMo switch.
I’m currently running OpenHAB as well as domoticz. OpenHAB surprised me with support for Belkin WeMo with a click of a button (downloading an add on). OpenHAB items and rules are a little bit more complicated but there are several tutorials online. As I get further into OpenHAB I’ll post more information and possibly a comparassion between the two platforms.
I recently set up a friends iPhone so that they could access their hotmail account through the mail app. Everything went well, until we decided to set up 2-Step Auth. Outlook uses the authenticator app from Google to supply the code, however, this would not sync with the Outlook server for quite some time. I eventually figured out that the lag was because the iPhone was not synced with a time server (through cellular network time) and therefore the app would not sync with the outlook server. Consequently, once I updated the setting on the iPhone, access was obtained with the code from the Authenticator app.
Rather than install an extension into Google chrome to save a page as a PDF, you can easily save the webpage you’re on in a few clicks.
After some researching I found a lot of these extensions available were sending the webpage you were on to a third party for processing (which I wasn’t too happy with for security reasons).
Then I found the simple way!
For Windows users – Hit print ( Ctrl + P) and under destination choose “Save as PDF”.
It’s that easy!
I found myself scouring the internet looking for the best way to merge PDF files to create a single PDF document.
I found many free programs and some great looking online services. I ended up going with a great little program called PDFtk – Free , a free utility for Windows that makes merging PDF’s simple.
Within a few minutes I had downloaded, installed and then merged by PDF files! Great end result.

After asking Siri to Shazam a song for me the other day I went back to try and find Siri shazamed songs. I found this quite difficult to find!
Here’s how to find them:
iTunes Store app, top right corner, click the lines. Now click the Siri tab. There you will find a history of your Siri shazamed songs.
