When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Phillips Hue lights didn't work for me
« on: November 18, 2016, 01:53:40 pm »
I didn't realize that the hub for this system has to be plugged directly into the network router.  This is impossible for me to do at my office, where I wanted to use these bulbs.  Is there another system where this is not necessary or where Alexa "talks" directly to the bulbs?

You can use wifi bulbs like TP-Link Smart LED Bulbs.

Are you saying that your office isn't wired for ethernet at all, or just that there's something else preventing you from using a wired connection?

The office has wifi, but they're not going to let me connect a device to the router.
