Disabling the Disarm Sound on the Kerui KR-8218G [French]
Wed, 18 Jan 2017 12:04:42 +0000

Hi I had the same problem with the Kerui W2, after watching this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAnfNn8N3f0 and setting a remote to zone 1 and disabling the sound as per the video(1st half) it worked! no more beeping when arming and disarming, much more discrete!

KERUI Home Security System Review: Alarm Panel
Mon, 16 Jan 2017 23:38:20 +0000

I think if you cut the power to it, then it will not be able to do anything. But to remove the SIM requires removing the back panel. When the back panel is removed while the system is armed, the alarm will go off. But if you just push the deactivate button before removing the back panel, then the alarm will not go off.

Try this... "Ok, Google, play spooky music." Great for Halloween.

Who's Calling?
Fri, 06 Jan 2017 02:18:00 +0000

Is it possible to connect Google Home to the phone system? I want to do that so, when the phone rings, I can ask, "Ok Google. Who's calling?"

Wake Me Up
Fri, 06 Jan 2017 02:12:45 +0000

And if you let the alarm go on and on, Google Home automatically silence it after ten minutes. I wonder if it is possible to change the alarm duration.

Talking about configuring things... it would be cool if you can change the melody, play a song, or gives you a voice wake up call.

Google Home Can't Play YouTube Video Through its Built-In Speaker?
Fri, 06 Jan 2017 02:17:57 +0000

Found the following settings in the Google Home app. I guess, in order to play YouTube videos through the built-in speaker, you have to pay for a YouTube Red subscription. I wonder if there is any other ways to play audios in YouTube videos.

What Should I Eat Today?
Fri, 06 Jan 2017 01:39:06 +0000

Can't decide what to eat? You can ask Google Home. This trick is very similar to the "Find a Place" feature, where Google Home will attempt to give you three restaurants around your location.

The only problem? It won't tell you where exactly to eat. It will give you three restaurants. So you still have to pick one. LOL.

I attempted to say, "Ok Google. Give me one restaurant in the area." But it still give me three restaurants. So funny.

I also tried, "Ok Google. Give me a random restaurant in the area." That didn't have and it gave me the same answer.

Maybe you discovered a way to get Google Home to tell you one random restaurant. Share it with us.

Find a Place
Fri, 06 Jan 2017 01:27:04 +0000

Messing around, I said, "Ok Google. I need a massage."

It replies that it found a few places. Then it proceeds to give me three massage locations in the city.

When Will Google Home be Able to Track USPS Packages?
Fri, 06 Jan 2017 01:04:15 +0000

Tried to get Google Home to track my USPS package today. After saying "Ok Google. Track USPS package [22 digit tracking number]", Google Home silently went back to sleep.

Dumbfounded, I asked Google Home about tracking USPS package. It attempted to explain to me that registering an account with USPS.com will allow me to get package notifications directly.

Specifically asking Google Home whether it "can track USPS packages for me", it responded that it help me with that yet.

Seems like a nice feature to have for Google Home, eh?

KERUI Home Security System - How to Set Sensor to Active Only at Night?
Sun, 01 Jan 2017 06:26:06 +0000

Does anyone know how to set one magnetic door sensor to be active at "stay arm" but only during night? Or at "disarmed" but only during night? You can select time scheduled arm/disarm times but it looks like it's only for the full arming?

Replacing Campbell Hausfeld CC 2300 Portable Inflator Battery
Thu, 29 Dec 2016 18:24:25 +0000

I tried to find a battery in 2013, but they cost as much as the charger. Now I found one for $17. Hanging onto my old junk pays off again!
My old battery (2007 ?) is 1270 7.0 amp.
Thanks for the excellent help.
Tom
