Since my 3t updated to oreo late last year the sound gives out every now and then. Means I miss texts because it has stopped notifying me unless it still lets me know via my watch which it does occasionally.In call volume also drops off and I have to reboot to improve both these problems.

I also bought from O2 so I was covered by UK regulations.

It's registered with them ("for warranty") and they know where it was bought from. But then, so did LG.... It wasn't until I came to claim for the GPS issue that they refused to admit there is a known problem and said new phones bought on eBay are not covered.
Hopefully I won't have to find out! So far very pleased with my 5.

That's a lot of issues Andreialisen. I don't suffer any of those issues but I probably use my phone completely differently to you. I can say that my phone does vibrate when I unlock with my fingerprint though. I think the Android 8 update was a little rushed in comparison to the Android 7 update last year. In my experience with One Plus in the last year, they have been good in sorting the issues and I know the 5.0.2 Oxygen OS update is just around the corner.

I've also paid a lot less, you can buy the Dupont connections, cables and headers separately.

When they put Arduino or Raspberry Pi in the title, it's an excuse to charge more.

Oh yeah before I forget you can convert a .hcx to .gpx but you should always store the file as .hcx as it contains more information (heart data etc.) Once you convert to .gpx you can't get that data back so keep the file as a .hcx and only convert it down if the app program your using requires it.
I've joined the group now.... Apparently you can just pay 1.69 and get the .tcx of the walk from that I was able to change it to .gpx with GPS Babel pc program. You can import to Strava but as you probably know you can't export from Strava without paying them a monthly subscription. But it doesn't matter because you can import it to Strava and then import it as a file and you never need to get the file out of Strava so you won't need to pay the sub. You can get an app as a APK called mifit exporter which will get the file for free but you have to root your phone something I would only do if the notify and fitness app started restricting access to the .hcx which I hope won't happen.

Hi All,

Please forgive with my noob questions but I need some help with understanding LED Strip lights.

I have seen a few versions on the net/ebay etc - one which is powered by the the Mains AC & another which is powered by USB cable.

1) If I get a a USB Cable version, can I simply connect the USB cable to a USB Wall Plug Adapter & then just plug it into the Mains like we do with most USB Devices? Is this safe?

2) Ideally, I need one with a Dimming function & some sort of control - I just want Warm White but the single colour strips I have seen have very limited options - the multi colour RGB ones seem to have a RC with a dimming function & I have seen "Full Kits" go for about £8-£16. On these RGB Kits can one set a "Warm White" colour or is one just stuck with the set colours any kit offers? I ask as they all seem to offer just plain bright white or yellow?

3) Regardless of whether a Strip/Kit is USB or Mains Powered, - must one always use a power transformer/adapter of some kind? I do not understand what all the Volts & Wattage numbers mean tbh. I need a a strip that is about 2m, offers Warm White, is dimmable & preferably has a handheld remote at a reasonable price

- Can anyone be kind enough to help a noob out please?

Big Thanks!

Or 24V ones - 1/4 of the copper losses, and the constant current ones are much more efficient too.

Any custom charge to uk


If you select free postage options and are prepared to wait 20-30 days for delivery, you should be fine.

You can never say never, but ordered 20+ items from China and no issues with Customs, using the free postage options. They usually write on packaging it's it's a $5 MP3 player, so customs are not interested.

If you select express delivery by the likes of DHL and UPS for example, it seems nearly everyone gets customs charges as the big parcel companies manage this on behalf of customs and will invoice the sender for the customs charges once it arrives in the UK and hold on to it until paid.

Indeed, Matthat!

These are short range radios. If you want a long range UHF radio, then take the Amateur Radio exam.

Take these toys a couple of hundred metres ASL and you'll get reasonable range.

VHF/UHF FM, = line of sight. The half watt power output, but more importantly, antenna which comes with this radio, is restricted, to comply with their license free status. BTW, changing the antenna would make this radio illegal.

Therefore, most of the time, a user in a city can expect a few hundred metres or less.

Long range radios, they certainly are not....So cold fom me...

With it popping up and suggesting movies and a whole multimedia hub around this.

A great specced phone for the price, and able to customise it. But I don't have time for that anymore.


Hey, see this is what I feared when I ordered this phone. However, I am not sure where these pop up of leeco movies or TV shows are. Have never come across them. I did select UK as region and feel that this service is removed. But I might well decide on rooting the phone. So used to the cyanogen mod
I've been using the Le Max 2 since Christmas. Stock ROM was a bit flaky so tried a few trimmed down ones - battery life is now much better and I'm really impressed with it as a day to day phone.

Main gripe is no dedicated headphone jack - something no one wants but the phone makers insist on removing. Fingerprint unlock is not as good as my ZUK Z2 but is better on the custom ROM. Helps adding the same finger a few times though.
Now reduced to £118.4
OP should update.
Agree with g-diddy to a degree. Bought one myself a while back and had issues basically Google wouldn't work because wouldn't have UK as a selection for region although could access Google Play store.

No need to solder anything if you don't want to, I flashed all mine just wedging the pins in the holes.Tasmota tends to be the weapon of choice nowadays and can be used with any of the usual suspects like home assistant etc but also can emulate a wemo or hue hub so can be picked up and switched using an Echo directly. Don't know about Google as their home automation is very average compared to Alexa so I don't bother with it.The official tasmota site will tell you more than you'll ever want to know about it and just search on YouTube for dozens of tutorials but just be aware, like anything, it can be out of date literally overnight so check carefully before committing.https://github.com/arendst/Sonoff-Tasmota/wiki

You obviously know nothing about mains electricity - you never break the earth connection, these devices are single phase devices. No residential property in the UK would be supplied with 2 phase (this is generally delivered @ 380v, single phase being delivered @ 240v & 3 phase generally @ 415v). I do believe polyphasing is no longer something any UK power generating company supplies - it's either single phase or 3 phase, if 2 phase is required (very rare and limited devices) it usually derived from 3 phase supplies...
Of course this is HotUKdeals - there is no point going into further detail, anyone wanting to install these devices should be smart enough to do their own research or employ someone with the correct knowledge...
I use Home Assistant, if you go for it Smart Things would become more of a hub controlled by HA along with everything else.

These are really a fully programmable esp8266 with a built in power supply in a plastic box that also has a relay if you want to switch things. If you Google do 8266 you'll see all sorts of things they can be used for.I have one that I use to switch a lamp in the lounge but it also has a temp sensor and a light sensor connected to it that I use the status of to control other items in the house.


nice, thanks! I didn't know you could do more with it. Out of interest do you control the switch and read out the sensor readings with Home Assistant / Smart things or similar? I have both HA and ST and am confused as to which way round to control everything.

Having said that I've just ordered the dupont cables I need for flashing my Sonoff and realised i've already broken the button
Can the LEDs be controlled via app etc?

Yes, alerts are handled through the app and you can set it to either record only when movement is triggered or record permanently.
I've put in a 8gb card which is enough for a day or two permanent recording, any movement alerts are flagged and highlighted in the app. It seem the files are cut in 10min chunks.

Picture can be manipulated to point down the path or directly at the door. Had an issue with couriers not delivering or not ringing doorbell and just leaving it on the mat - this provided the proof! Records to SD card, alerts can be setup in the app.[Image] [Image] [Image]


So can you get sensor alerts to your phone so you know if someone is at your door? And can you tell it to start and stop recording like an IP camera?
How do I get this to work in an ordinary cieling light Do I need to convert the voltage or do I just screw in?
Help!

That path looks like it might need a bit of help .


Yep you need to use the app to keep and eye on those weeds...
