#STAYHOME and DIY

We are all getting a bit bored these days and not being able to leave our homes. The global pandemic has deeply interfered with our daily lives. But look on the bright side, now we finally have much more time to play with our smart home gadgets!

  • Micro SD Card (min 8 GB, max 32GB), we suggest Sandisk Extreme cards
  • Network Lan cable and
