Looking to smarten up your home? Consider Treatlife’s options

Are you in the beginning stages of planning or building out a smart home? Is your house looking to add a few smart bulbs or outlets? Fortunately, there are a number of great brands to consider.While many people may think of GE or Philips as being among the only companies in the smart light space there are numerous other, less expensive options. Treatlife, for example, is one brand that’s slowly building out a portfolio of connected devices, lights, switches, and more.Treatlife expanded its product line in July, adding the following products:Smart Ceiling Fan Control and Light Dimmer Switch ($44.99): Our combined fan and light dimmer switch turns any ceiling fan into a smart fan and puts control directly on the wall so that you never have to fuss with pull chains again.3-Way Wi-Fi Smart Light Switch ($19.99): Add smart light functionality for 3-way and single pole applications.Wi-Fi Smart Dimmer Switch ($21.99): Add smart dimming functionality for single pole applications.Wi-Fi Smart Light Switch ($17.99): Add smart light functionality for single pole applications.Plug in Dimmer ($37.99): All the programmable features of Treatlife products including scheduling and dimming in a plug. Works indoors and outdoors and is great for floor lamps, outdoor market lighting, Christmas lights and more.Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulbs with 16M Colors ($39.99 for 4 bulbs): Express yourself with dramatic lighting effects in up to 16 million dimmable colors at a cost that’s more than 75% less than the same product from a leading competitor. No hubs required.Among those that were sent to us, and which we feel comfortable recommending, are the following:3-Way Wi-Fi Smart Light Switch60W LED Dimmable White and Color Bulb60W LED Dimmable White BulbWe were provided a few editorial samples of Treatlife products and found them to be of solid build quality and easy to set up. Moreover, they were easy to integrate with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.If you’re looking to replace your lights in an overhead manner, such as a ceiling fan, you may want to look into the dimmable white bulb. Lamps and sconces, on the other hand, look great when adding a hint of color. And with 16 million colors to choose from, the color bulb is excellent.A quick look around shows that the Treatlife options are a fraction of what it might cost for any other brand. The dimmer switch, for example, is just $20 when Leviton’s alternative is about $45.Similarly, a 4-pack of Treatlife color bulbs runs $30.59 while a 2-pack of C by GE costs $48.99. That breaks down to $7.65 per bulb versus $24.50 each.Learn more about the Treatlife brand and its products by visiting its website. It also has a landing page on Amazon, too.

There are plenty of wireless service providers to choose from, at least here in the United States. In fact, it may seem as if there are too many options to consider. But when it comes down to it, many of them rely on the networks offered by Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.Total Wireless, a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO), is one such carrier. Indeed, it has its own rate plans and features, but it licenses coverage from Verizon.When it comes to buying a phone for use on Total Wireless there are a few options to consider. For starters, you can bring your current Verizon device to the carrier. Additionally, you can buy an unlocked CDMA phone for use on Total.Customers can also purchase a phone directly from Total Wireless. While there’s a fairly decent and well-rounded handset selection, a few key models rise to the top.What follows are some of the best Android phones available at Total Wireless today. These aren’t the most powerful, but rather the best for particular needs.Samsung Galaxy Note 20 UltraThe Best AvailableIf you’re looking for the biggest and most powerful all-around device from Total Wireless, this is it. With a screen size (6.9-inches) that rivals early tablets, it packs an upgraded S Pen stylus and cutting-edge hardware. Oh, and then there’s a first-of-its-kind 108-megapixel camera, too.Powered by Android 10 with Samsung’s custom UI, the handset has generous battery, tons of (expandable) storage, and support for Verizon’s Ultra Wideband 5G network.

HMD Global announces the Nokia 2 V Tella for Verizon

Nokia is back in the US and making a big push over the last few years. Well, its new partner HMD Global has a revealed a new device coming to Verizon later this month. Say hello to the Nokia 2 V Tella.The name may be a mouthful, but this device is looking to give folks a solid smartphone with no frills and a great price. The Nokia 2 V Tella builds on the Nokia 2 V from last year to offer users “stock Android” on the cheap on Big Red’s network.With the Nokia 2 V Tella, you get a 5.45-inch HD+ display paired with a 3000mAh battery pack inside. Around the back is a dual-camera module with an 8-megapixel main shooter and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.Performance should be good but not great with the included internals of a MediaTek Helio A22 processor and 2GB of RAM. You also only get 16GB of internal storage but will have expansion with the microSD slot.However, even with meager specs, day-to-day use should be decent with Android 10 running with little to no tweaks. Nokia tends to not mess with the way Google intended to present Android to the masses. One thing the company does include is a handy dedicated button on the side of the phone to launch Google Assistant.The Nokia 2 V Tella will be available on the Verizon network and stores later this month for $89. It will also be sold in Walmart retail outlets and the online storefront.
