Microsoft's Cortana Assistant Gains IFTTT Integration, Supports More Smart Home Products

In a bid to expand into the growing home automation market, Microsoft's digital assistant Cortana will now support more smart home devices and integrate with IFTTT - a free web-based platform that helps users connect their apps and services together, the company has announced.

Cortana now supports devices from ecobee, Honeywell Lyric, Honeywell Total Connect Comfort, LIFX, TP-Link Kasa and Geeni. 

Cortana running on Windows 10 Operating System (OS), iPhone, Android and the Harman Kardon Invoke speakers, can be used to control these devices.

"Say 'Hey Cortana, set the living room thermostat to 72 degrees' to control your ecobee, Honeywell Lyric, or Honeywell Total Connect Comfort thermostat. With vivid colours from your LIFX Wi-Fi connected light bulbs, you can set the mood just right for movie night," the company wrote in a blog post late on Friday.

To set up their connected home with the digital assistant, users need to open Cortana on Windows 10 or go to the Cortana app on their phone, click Notebook and then click Connected Home. 

"From there, you can connect your favourite smart home accounts and control your devices from anywhere you use Cortana," the post added..

The tech giant also announced Cortana's support for IFTTT.

IFTTT (If This Then That) is both a website and a mobile app that was launched in 2010.

"Using IFTTT, you will be able to customise your experience by creating your own phrases to use with services on IFTTT. You can also use Applets on IFTTT with Cortana to trigger multiple actions with one phrase," Microsoft said.

We just upgraded our Synology NAS units from Synology’s prior model, DS1817+ to their latest model, DS1819+. In my previous article, I reviewed not just the DS1817+ chassis but also the M2D17 M.2 SATA SSD expansion card. I also covered software features including downloadable Synology and third-party applications, the file system, file sharing, synchronization & backup, and security.

If you are using anything other than an Apple device, then the best graphics subsystem for the MPV media player today is Vulkan. This includes recent Windows-based PCs, Linux-based devices, and Android-based devices.However, Apple devices running macOS, iOS, tvOS use Metal 2, not Vulkan. There currently is not a Metal RA for MPV. This means that MPV must use Apple’s deprecated OpenGL graphics subsystem. In the near future, it may be possible to use MoltenVK for a 2x performance gain over OpenGL. However, there is not an easy means (e.g. HomeBrew) to install both MPV and MoltenVK on Mac, much less iOS and tvOS devices.

It is amazing how much data our family generates. We record our home videos in 4K resolution. We have scanned over 100 years of our family photo albums and slides in TIFF format for permanent archival. I shoot high-resolution images on my Nikon D500 and Fuji X100F cameras in RAW format. I ripped hundreds of CDs that I bought over the decades in lossless audio format. We have constructed a multi-room DVR solution for our home, time-shifting cable and local OTA content. I run my application development environments in virtual machines. And, we back up all of our Macs using our NAS’ Time Capsule service.

The SB4031-D5 supports connections for HDMI ARC, Bluetooth, Ethernet, optical digital, analog RCA, analog 3.5mm and a USB for flash drives. HDMI ARC is the preferred method so that the sound bar can seamlessly handle lossy and lossless audio in PCM surround sound. If you use the optical audio connection, you will be limited to either stereo lossless PCM or surround sound in lossy Dolby Digital.

The Shield TV continues to be an anomaly: it is by far the most powerful media streamer and a capable gaming platform though not as advanced as the Xbox One or Playstation 4, while costing nearly as much. While Google focuses on stripped down Chromecast devices and Chromecast-enabled TVs, Nvidia singularly showcases the advanced functionality of Android TV including DVR, media serving, gaming, and now smart home capabilities. Though Nvidia is touting the Shield TV and AI home, Google is the AI element and Nvidia is the hardware manufacturer.

So you just bought an expensive new 4K (UHD) television set. The issue is that most live and recorded video distributed today is less than 4K (2160p) resolution. Blu-rays are 1080p format while DVDs are only 480i/p. TV broadcasters use either 1080i or 720p. Some cable and satellite companies are downscaling 1080i to 720p format. Although some over-the-top video service providers like Amazon and Netflix have select content in 4K, most of their content is in 1080 resolution. To solve this, UHD TVs include upscalers for lower resolution content originating from cable/satellite settop boxes, Blu-ray and DVD players and gaming consoles.

Thus far, Logitech has partnered with Amazon. By connecting the Harmony Hub with Alexa, you can start or stop Harmony activities such as “Watch TV”, “Play a Game” or “Listen to some Music”.

For any Harmony Hub activity, you can create a friendly name that’s easier to say. You can also tune specific channels on your cable/satellite with voice commands such as “Alexa, turn on sports”.

If you have a late-model car, you likely can stream music from your iPhone via either Bluetooth or USB. I have found several issues with this: (1 ) streaming requires enough mobile coverage and bandwidth and needlessly consumes wireless data (especially for high quality audio), (2) stored music on your phone requires a large amount of storage space on a very expensive phone, (3) seeking music is much faster for locally store music, (4) there’s the issue of whose phone/music collection is connected to the car when multiple phones are present, and (5)
there’s no risk of loss/theft/dead battery of the USB thumb drive. Continue reading How To: Listening to Your iTunes Music Collection in Your Car with a USB Thumb Drive

First, let’s acknowledge up front that all motorcycle-specific GPS units are both obsolete technologically and horribly overpriced. For years, I had a Garmin Zumo 650. The screen was dull and slow to respond to touch. The processor was very slow to process that input or to recalculate routes. The Bluetooth audio pairing was always flaky, particularly for phone integration. The software was antiquated even compared to cheap Garmin car units. Online trip planning integration tools were primitive. Exporting routes from Google Maps required a hack to GPX waypoints that never routed the same way in the Garmin. The included audio app is near useless. Continue reading How To: Using a Smartphone for a Better Navigation System for Motorcycles
