Holiday Gifts With No Strings Attached

Posted: Monday, November 25, 2002

(NAPSI)-New products that operate using wireless technology provide practical and affordable ways to impress even difficult persons on your holiday gift list. Since the products actually send signals through walls without additional wiring, they make it a breeze to view important areas of a home or business on any TV, enjoy PC-based movies and pictures on the family room big screen, even record images of unwanted company entering your driveway while you're at work.

Wireless products such as those from X10 can be easy to set up, easy to use, and reasonably priced. For example:

The XCam2 is an inexpensive alternative for home or business surveillance. With its built-in antennae, the camera can beam color video to its receiver, which you can plug into a television, VCR or computer. You can view your child's room while you watch TV in bed. Increase efficiency in a small business by monitoring the front door while working at your computer. The XCam2 sells for $79.99 (Additional equipment required for viewing on a computer.)

Showtime is a PC-to-TV photo sharing kit that broadcasts computer-based digital images to a television or big screen. The included software and remote control make it easy to create photo albums to enjoy on screen. The Showtime kit sells for $99.99

The FloodCam kit is like having a pair of eyes on the driveway to detect motion and record video images. The all-in-one wireless camera and built-in motion sensor can be wired directly to an existing electrical circuit. The camera captures an image that can be permanently recorded on a VCR or PC for review and even provided to law enforcement. The Flood Cam sells for $79.99.

(Additional equipment required for savings images on a VCR or PC).

The ActiveHome kit automatically sends on/off commands to lights and appliances. The included software makes it possible to schedule daily wake-up and go-to-bed routines that will continue to run even when the PC is turned off. The six-piece starter kit sells for $49.99.

"Our holiday gifts are in a class all by themselves," said Alex Peder, President, X10 Wireless Technology, Inc. One click at x10.com and you're ready to fully enjoy the holiday season."
