- Obihai Voice-Over-IP Home Phone Adapter for $38
Obihai OBi200 Voice-over-IP Home Phone Adapter for $50, and code NWKCMD1 applies $12 off in the cart.
Normally sells for about $50.
The OBi gives free home telephone service over your Internet connection that is at least 0.5 megabit (500 Kbps).
Setup with free Google Voice is easy, as demonstrated in this
Obihai/Google Voice video.
Use any corded or cordless home telephone, such as a cordless phone from Uniden, Panasonic, or Motorola, and you can make and receive telephone calls.
Plug any home telephone, such as a Uniden, Panasonic, VTech, Motorola, or AT&T cordless phone, and you can make and receive phone calls.
A home phone saves minutes off your cell phone plan, and usually has superior voice quality with fewer dropped calls.
We have been using the 2-line Obi202 version for over 3 years, and love it.
Call quality is superior to mobile phones.
All calls (incoming and outgoing) within the US and Canada are free with Google Voice.
International calling rates are fairly cheap, too.
Incoming calls can ring all your phones (cell phone and home phone) at the same time, provide call screening features, and has online voicemail playback.
Adding an additional phone line is simple, just get another Obihai or buy the multi-line version.
This is far cheaper than buying lines from the telephone company.
You can assign yourself a brand new phone number with Google Voice, or port over a phone number you already use.
Emergency 911 calls do not work with Google Voice.
Your cell phone is the only way to call for help, and you can waste precious minutes telling your address to emergency responders.
Obi does offer 911 service through Anveo for $15/year, and we do recommend this.
The service lives on your Obi, and routes emergency calls to your local dispatch center.
When dialing 911, your home address (as entered when signing up for service) is immediately sent to dispatch, improving emergency response time.
There is no guarantee Google Voice will remain free forever.
Google Voice could, at some point in the future, either charge for service or play ads when making calls.

This is a very low-powered video card by today's standards, with a benchmark score of 958.

- Amcrest 720p Wifi Camera with Remote Pan/Tilt $60 (expired)
Amcrest IPM-721 720p Wifi Camera with Remote Pan/Tilt for $75, and code MKPLAM59 applies $15 off today.
Available in White and in Black.
We bought the 1080p version (model IP2M-841) in August when it was on sale for $63.
The 720p model should have similar features with lower HD quality.
It came with a bracket and screws to mount almost anywhere, and the video quality is very good even at night.
The included software is a little kludgy, but they are continuing to update it.
The remote control pan/tilt works from their mobile app, and allows 2-way communication through a built-in mic and speaker.
So, you can talk to your pets while away from home.
They do offer a cloud service (for a monthly fee) just like Netgear Arlo and Nest Cam.
Or, to avoid paying monthly fees for storage service, the Amcrest can store videos on a MicroSD card or server/NAS hard drive through FTP.
After we researched why anyone would want a powerful blacklight in the palm of their hands, this tool actually sounds useful.
According to the reviews, people can find things not easily visible to the human eye such as bacteria, scorpions, stains, money/check/art forgery detection, etc.
