    "Wally is great for monitoring things like water leaks, temperature and humidity levels in your home. Detecting a water leak can save time and money since it alerts to a problem that can be fixed. Monitoring a temperature can prevent a room from getting too cold, therefore keeping pipes from freezing. In addition, Wally is very user friendly and the set up is simple. "

    "In a world full of voice-assistant devices, Google is a stand out for being a name brand people trust. Google Home allows you to incorporate the Google products you already use - like your calendar, your playlists, and Chromecast - to simplify your life even more. Ask Google when your first appointment of the day is. Ask Google to queue up your favorite show on Netflix, using Chromecast. Google Home is not only affordable, it's practical."

It really does change the viewing experience in a way that you can't imagine until you've tried it. I highly recommend it for anyone truly interested in home media."
