    Monster Smart Illuminessence Outdoor Spotlights: What's in the Box?

    Monster Smart Illuminessence Outdoor Spotlights: What's in the Box?

    DescriptionIn this episode of PLUGHITZ Live Unboxed, Scott provides a detailed description and first impressions of the indoor and outdoor Spotlights from the Monster Smart Illuminescence line. Scott starts the episode by expressing his excitement to finally have the spotlights in his hands and see what comes in the box.
    Monster Smart Illuminescence Spotlights unboxedScott mentions that these spotlights run on Wi-Fi and are RGBIC, meaning that each light can be controlled individually, allowing for patterns to go across them instead of just one solid color. He opens the box and finds a Getting Started guide and a Quick Start guide, which are altered versions of what is expected with all Monster Smart Illuminescence products.
    He then talks about a feature that was announced during their show last year, which is the Razer Chroma integration. He explains that these spotlights can integrate with Razer Chroma, allowing users to illuminate their house based on the look of their screen or have the lights change color every time they receive a tweet.
    Moving on to the actual product, Scott discovers stakes that can be screwed into the bottom of the lights, allowing them to be placed into the ground. He also notices a mounting hole on the bottom of the lights, which can be used to attach them to the stakes. The lights can also be attached to a wall or roof using the same mounting hole. Each light can be angled and controlled individually.
    Scott then explores the length of the cable and finds it to be long enough to run a longer distance. This gives a lot of versatility to the way the lights are installed. He also discovers a Monster controller, which can be used to control the spotlights instead of using a phone. There is a long cable from the controller to a junction point, which is waterproof and screw-on, just like the Neon products.
    Finally, Scott examines the four lights that come with the set, each with a decent length of cable. At the end of the cable is a capped junction point where another set can be plugged in, allowing for multiple sets to be powered in a straight line.
    He concludes by mentioning that they will be doing a full product review to explore all the different ways the spotlights can be used. They will also provide a how-to guide on setting up and pairing the spotlights with the Monster Smart app. The link to the product review will be updated in the video description, and all reviews can be found on the PLUGHITZ Live website.
    In conclusionThe podcast episode provides a thorough unboxing and initial impressions of the Monster Smart Illuminescence Spotlights. The host highlights their Wi-Fi capabilities, individual control, Razer Chroma integration, and the versatility of being able to stake them into the ground. The length of the cable and the ability to daisy chain multiple sets together are also mentioned as notable features. Overall, the episode offers valuable insights for anyone interested in these spotlights.

    Neakasa P2 Pro Grooming Kit for Dogs and Cats: What's Inside?

    DescriptionThe Neakasa P2 Pro is a grooming kit designed for dogs and cats. This product was showcased at CES 2023 and has received positive reviews from users. The grooming kit comes in a large box that contains various attachments, a user's guide, a power cable, and the machine itself.
    Neakasa P2 Pro: Great grooming kitOne of the key features of the Neakasa P2 Pro is its ability to vacuum up hair while grooming. The attachments include brushes, a standard trimmer, and a "pointy vacuum bit," a thin attachment similar to those on a shop vac. The brushes have firm bristles and a vacuum sealing spot in the middle. The trimmer comes with different shields for different lengths. The thin attachment is used for cleaning hard-to-reach areas.
    The machine itself is straightforward to use and has a release button at the back and front to remove the middle part for cleaning. The vacuum power level can be controlled using a dial, and the hose is removable for easy cleaning. The device also comes with a foot stand for stability during use.
    One of the significant advantages of the Neakasa P2 Pro is its quiet operation, even at all three vacuum power levels. This feature is particularly useful when grooming pets that are easily frightened by loud noises, including Beau, who entered the studio because of the sound of the device.
    Overall, the Neakasa P2 Pro is a great grooming kit for pet owners. Its ability to vacuum up hair while grooming saves time and effort. The various attachments cater to different grooming needs, and the device's quiet operation is a significant advantage. The product's user guide is well-designed and available in multiple languages, making it easy to understand and use.
    New vacuum with powerful attachmentsThe Neakasa P2 Pro is a new vacuum with powerful attachments that are specifically designed for pet owners. This device is an all-in-one grooming kit that allows pet owners to groom their pets while vacuuming up hair at the same time. This is a great feature that saves time and effort, and it is especially useful for pet owners who have pets that shed a lot.
    One of the key advantages of the Neakasa P2 Pro is its powerful attachments. The device comes with a range of attachments that cater to different grooming needs. For example, there is a brush attachment that is perfect for removing loose hair and dirt from your pet's coat. There is also a vacuum attachment that is designed to suck up hair and dirt from your pet's coat, leaving it clean and shiny, or to clean hair from furniture and clothing.
    Another advantage of the Neakasa P2 Pro is its quiet operation. This is a significant advantage, especially for pet owners who have pets that are easily frightened by loud noises. The device operates quietly, which means that it is less likely to scare your pet and make them anxious during the grooming process.
    The Neakasa P2 Pro also comes with a well-designed user guide that is available in multiple languages. This makes it easy for pet owners to understand and use the device, even if they are not familiar with the language in which the user guide is written.
    In conclusion, the Neakasa P2 Pro is a great grooming kit for pet owners. Its powerful attachments, quiet operation, and well-designed user guide make it easy to use and highly effective. If you are a pet owner who is looking for a device that can help you groom your pet while vacuuming up hair at the same time, then the Neakasa P2 Pro is definitely worth considering.
