Securus Technologies Is Excellent At The Holidays

Most people cannot imagine being incarcerated during the holidays because it is a time for togetherness, presents and wonderful food. Since prisoners are not able to be with their loved ones during the holiday, they can get very depressed. When this happens there is a very depressing mood that takes over the facility, and it can lead to fights and other infractions.   Securus Technologies created the Christmas video visits so that the prisoners can take part in the holiday, and see their loved ones. They can hear and see them, and watch them open presents and have their holiday meal. This saves the facility money, and also the person that would be coming to visit the prisoner. They would have to pay for parking and gas, and they don’t have to do this when they use the video visits. These video visits also create a joyous atmosphere in the…

Gooee: Better Ambiance, Greener Flow

Smart lighting is lighting of the future. Everything is “smart” these days, so why not smart lighting. In fact, doesn’t it seem that we’ve been waiting around for smart lighting for a while? The ability to dim a light switch while remaining seated or have a light turn off when we leave the room without the excessive “clap on”, “clap off” mechanism? On and off with the lights is only the beginning. Really, these smart chips are able to take lighting into a whole new arena, maximizing their use as an aesthetic ambiance, their interconnectedness and ease of use in life, and their low output of energy making them greener.   Smart lighting by Gooee is shrinking the LED sensor that allows the lighting in a home to be interconnected with the internet.

My Small Apartment Was Cleaned By Handy

Having such a small apartment meant that I had to keep it clean all the time, but I don’t always do what I’m supposed to. I work so often that cleaning is the last thing that I can do at the end of a long day, and I still don’t do any cleaning. I needed a great cleaning service to help me out because I wanted to work as much as I could, so I’ll be able to buy a home within a year. I am new to the area and only found out about Handy because I was informed by someone who works with me. I constantly complained about not having the time to clean my home, but it was all just to spark a conversation with a nice girl that I was trying to get to know.
