I’m still patiently waiting for voice activated women. Even voice recognition would be a plus

Never bought anything from Ikea. Acquisitions of vinyl wrapped chipboard furniture in my youthful poverty stricken years were from companies like Sauder and came from stores like K-mart and Sears which sadly don't exist now where I live. Not a scrap of it survives, just like the stores where I bought it.

As for voice activation.... I'm really waiting for mind control. Why have to speak when I can just think "lights off" and they turn off?

Rick, apparently you have never been around a bunch of women drinking wine. That stuff gets them voice activated!

Often though the results can be buggy. The women I've known and loved always responded to my audible requests, but often with something other than the expected response. It worked both ways though, so I never complained.

That's a good idea but it's not advisable leaving a machine working unattended. Being too far away can lead to disaster.
Case in point: my cousin who is a retired fire chief built his own CNC machine. While it was running, he went into the house for a few minutes, (about 5). Coming back out he noticed smoke boiling from his stand alone shop. The bit caught the wood on fire. Of course it toasted his machine, but fortunately not his shop.
I realize that you are on top of it with a monitor, but it takes only a split second for dust to ignite. Good idea, but be careful.

Forget about insulation; you need a woman worse!

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. - Mark Twain

I recently bought a Wyzecam HD camera for roughly $26 including shipping directly from Wyzecam.com. It's also available on Amazon. It has zoom, sends notice via wireless internet to your phone of motion, sound, carbon monoxide and smoke detector sounds. There's no pan.

I like it! I got three cheap cameras that pan and tilt (no zoom) to watch my house while I was on vacation. They can output to a web page, so you can watch them in any browser on your local network (or the web with dynamic DNS). They'll respond to the cursor keys to pan and tilt. I once used one to watch my stove from another room!

I don't have a CNC so this use never occurred to me. Nice.

For those wanting to control their system remotely, I guess you could try running VNC on your CNC.

That sounds more like it. I think I will try one out and see how it works. My CNC is simply next wall over, but most of the time, I let it run and sit at my desk and piddle! So I am literally less than 20 feet from the e-stop.

This thread has already got me thinking about other uses. One in particular is my Traeger pellet cooker. There have been several occasions where I cook over night (pork butts). Start after dark, let it smoke for four hours, then set the temp at 225 and let it cook over night. Don't use much fuel and is a stable cooking machine. I have a remote temp monitor that is connected to my phone via Bluetooth that alerts me to temp changes. But it would be great to be able to see what is happening without having to get out of bed and trudge through the house and out the back door.

So I can move the camera around as needed. There are magnets available that have the beveled hole in the center for permanent mounting. That will work very well. I have a spot under our Palapa that would be out of any rain.

I am slowly catching up to this high tech world!

EDIT: Well dang, they are on back order. That's OK. I will just have to be patient! NOT!!!
