    My Command Center

    This part of my network never goes down, everything on here runs off a UPS. After 15 minutes or so my generator will kick in and power the house.

    The "output to RT ? N56U" sends the Internet to another router used as a repeater/access point at the other end of the house. It also provides a good Wi-Fi signal to the cottage in the backyard. This is where my CCTV cameras, home automation, extra workstation and backup drives are connected. Need to add a switch.

    My doorbell is wired to line #2 of my phone. So when the doorbell is pressed it rings line #2 of my phone and I can talk to the person at the door and call up the camera for my front door. Using the garage door opener I can then let people in an out of the house.

    I have a remote switch to the power strip for the important devices, Internet modem, router, speakerphone, computer) attached to my headboard so Flipping the switch reboots everything.

    An IP camera and a garage door opener gives you a cheap and easy system to let people in and out of your house

    Computers sure have changed since the 70s!

    Pretty amazing times we live in. Nice set up you have.

    I can't imagine not having online banking, Amazon Prime, and many other things which help me to live independently and get business done.

    I picked up a good deal on Amazon Echo / Alexa during Prime day this week and should arrive Monday... it may just be another gadget but hoping to get some practical usage from it, grocery lists , maybe some home controls etc. we'll see
