Re: selling on ebay?

PayPal is still the safest option as it is built into the eBay platform. PayPal became a subsidiary of eBay in 2002 and then into its own company in 2015.

There are many large local companies who support entrepreneurial activity who would be interested in sponsoring a series like this!

Re: Everything Smart homes

That’s why I love the lutron caseta switches.. no neutral wire necessary.. Coming to think of it, when i did the Harmony remote setup on the home theater setup in 2009, I added Lutron IR dimmer switches and they did not need a neutral either, but that's because they never actually turn off complete...

The part number on amazon is ZNKG-B03 it’s kinda generic.

Nice! It's not HomeKit ready tho
Best I could find is the Koogeek 2 gang smart switch that is HomeKit, Alexa and Google Assistant ready.

Re: Best of CES 2018 - Consumer Electronics Show

^ then what do you do about the OS?

Apple continuity features in Hand-off work well for this - you can start working on your iPhone and do heavier lifting on your iPad tablet or even heavier on your Mac laptop or desktop.
