Our Lift Master garage door opener remote broke so we wanted to get a smaller universal remote ( https://amzn.to/3iRb2Ec ). We needed a garage remote for our 2017 Chevy Volt which did not have a garage door opener built into the car. We also want to upgrade to the ability to control and view status of the garage door via a smart phones app. Most universal remotes cost about $30, and since we needed 3 remotes, it was worth exploring an app based solution like the Aladdin Connect ( https://amzn.to/3jVROyw ). There were options to give our friends access to return borrowed items to the garage and be able to monitor the status of the door.

The install was 30 minutes to setup the app, control unit, and mount the door position sensor. The Genie website had very detailed instructions. We just replaced the wires of the old wall switch to the new control module. You can add up to 3 doors to the system with additional sensors ( https://amzn.to/2GVHLeG ). Each Aladdin Connect Door position sensor uses a CR2450 battery ( https://amzn.to/3lGuhCj ) The app can view door status history and which account opened or closed the door. Aladdin Connect can also be controlled by Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

Overall, it was a very simple install and upgrade that took less than an hour to setup and add to our cell phones. It comes with hardware and wire to direct wire to the existing garage opener if needed. You will need to make sure your WiFi signal can reach the Aladdin Connect Control unit. If not you may need to get a Wifi extender ( https://amzn.to/2IlgOBk ). We will revisit and review this device and app in a few months, and will give you an update, so subscribe and stay tuned.

I wanted simple ambient light that was not distracting and can be set to power on / off when I start the car. I bought two kits to review: USB powered 5 volt flexible LED light kit ( https://amzn.to/33MbKhM ) and a 12 volt version ( https://amzn.to/3nJki0H ). I choose to use the USB powered led lights due to the lower voltage, lower heat generated, and flexible material to mount to the curvy interior panels. There are also smart phone versions ( https://amzn.to/3iKgatO ).

I made previous videos on how to set the theme for the new Honda infotainment system colors and theme.

Adding this led light kit to the interior to match the colors in the infotainment was fun. I also wanted to match the sport drive mode red. But overall I wanted low amber color light so I can see any items that may be in the dim glovebox or foot wells. My install took less than 20 minutes . I only installed the lights removable panels that do not have any electronics or air bag modules. The LED lights are also placed so they do not glare and distract me while driving.

AUKEY Dual Dash Cam – INSTALL – 24 Hour Battery Backup – LONG TERM REVIEW – Honda Clarity

I bought the AUKEY Dual Dash Cam – 1080P HD Front and Rear Camera from Amazon( https://amzn.to/2R6c6sh ) about 20 months ago. This video will give an overview of Honda Clarity dual dash camera install overview including front and rear dash camera wiring. Powering a dash camera for 24 hour recording.

I have a 64 gig mini SD card to allow for 24 hour recordings. The dual dash camera records front and back of the car in 1080P resolution. A dual input 26,800 mah power bank powers the dash camera for 24 hour recording. It charges from two 12 volt car ANKER USB fast chargers ( https://amzn.to/3i9Db9V ). Many of these items are listed on my 2018 Honda Clarity list on Amazon : https://www.amazon.com/shop/sterlingw
