Getting Kids Ready to Go Back to School: 10 Helpful Tips

Summer vacation is almost over and many individuals are making preparations for the kids to go back to school. Although this can be a hectic time of year, it can also be an exciting time when proper planning is involved.

back to school

Below are 10 helpful tips to make the upcoming school year a great one!

1.) Begin by thoroughly cleaning your kid’s bedroom, especially the closet. This is a great time to get rid of clothes that are worn or no longer fit. Also use this time to determine what clothing items you might need to purchase.

2.) Organize and prepare a place for study or doing homework. This should be a quiet place where there are little distractions nearby. Be sure to equip this space with comfortable seating, a desk, power hub and quality lighting. And don’t forget to stock up on supplies so that you don’t have to run out and buy paper and other items later on when reports are due.

3.) Set up a space for notes from teachers such as permission slips. This should be a system that includes an inbox (for documents that mom or dad need to see) along with an outbox (signed documents for the kids to take back to school).

4.) Put together an activities calendar to help keep track of homework, sports and other activities.

5.) Visit the doctor and make sure all of your child’s immunizations are up-to-date.

6.) Secure plans and arrangements for taking the kids to and picking them up from school. If need be, sign up the kids for after-school programs or daycare.

7.) Set a definite bedtime that will ensure the kids have plenty of rest. You will also want to decide what time the kids will get up. This should allow time for them to get dressed and have a healthy breakfast. Send kids to bed and get them up early according to this schedule a few days before school starts to get them acclimated.

8.) Meet the new teacher before the first day of school if possible. Exchange phone numbers in case there is any need for communication. Don’t forget to leave emergency contact information as well.

9.) Try to meet other parents and exchange phone numbers or e-mail addresses for future contact.

10.) Get the kids excited about the first day and the new school year.

Before going shopping, make a list of what you will need before school begins. Some things you might need, include:

  • Making sure you know the specifics of any dress codes before you begin making purchases.
  • Homework office supplies such as paper, pencils, pens, a computer, computer cart and printer.
  • Notebooks, binders, tablet accessories, calculators and other items for the classroom. You should receive a list from the teacher. Be sure to get everything on the list if possible.
  • Groceries including breakfast and lunch items.
  • Wall calendar or planner.
  • Backpacks

When selecting a DVR (or digital video recorder), you’ll want to select one that can be used for different purposes. The DVR you select should support today’s technology. Look for DVR’s with the following:

  • Built in DVD Recorder
  • Built in Storage
  • HDMI Output
  • At Least Two USB Ports

How is the DVR used in home security? It will record the activity on your property via the use of security cameras. You should also be able to go back and review the recordings using your DVR.

Your most important decision when selecting a DVR is how many channels you will need. For smaller properties, 4 channels may suffice although most homeowners choose at least an 8 channel DVR. For businesses or larger properties, you can get a DVR with as many as 32 channels. Along with your DVR, you will also need or want security cameras, cables, connectors, power cords and optional accessories to set up your home security system.

3D Printer Buyers Guide: Considerations, Types and Cost

3D printers might be one of the most exciting – and newest – technologies to hit the market in decades. Now, it’s possible to build 3D objects on-demand in the comfort of your office. Yet, if you’ve never used a 3D printer before, or you’re new to this type of technology, it can be difficult to know what to look for, the different types of print technologies, and the other specs you should consider.

Many of the consumer 3D printers are traditionally smaller in size, but can print materials up to the size of about a loaf of bread. So what do you need to consider when buying a 3D printer? Here are the few features you should think about:

  • Build Area Size and Shape: There is the area in which the object is printed. Depending on the type of objects you will be printing, you should consider how big the print box needs to be. Fortunately, 3D printing makes it easy to print multiple parts and fit them together later.
  • Printing Technology: There are several different types of technologies used in 3D printing. One of the most common is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). FDM printers build high-quality parts using plastics, and because of this, they’re widely used in production manufacturing. Additionally, more advanced FDM printers can use multiple print nozzles, which are known as extruders, and have the ability to print in finer detail.
  • XY Resolution: 3D printers are like paper printers in that both can print up to a specific resolution. XY resolution is a measure of the 3D printer’s ability to print in detail. A finer resolution will enable the printer to print finer details. This resolution is measured in millimeters. Typically, XY resolution ranges around .3 millimeters.
  • Extruder Type: Budget 3D printers tend to use a single extruder, which is the nozzle from which the melted plastic is layered onto the object. Having a single extruder limits the printer to a single material/color at one time. Higher end printers have dual extruders, which yields a faster print speed, as well as the ability to print in multiple colors/materials at the same time.
  • Print Speed: This is the faster speed the extruder moves around the build area. Yet, material type as well as the level of detail in a particular print can slow down the print speed.
  • Layer Resolution: This is a measure of the thickness of a particular layer that can be laid in a single pass. Typically, budget 3D printers have larger layer resolutions, meaning they aren’t capable of laying down fine details. Finer resolutions, though, can create very fine details. This resolution is typically measured in microns, or fractions of a mm. On average, layer thickness for many printers is about .3 millimeters, yet some have the ability to go down to 1 micron or finer.

Multichannel Video Recorders: NVR vs DVR and Installation

Multichannel video recorders are commonly used in surveillance camera systems to record and capture video. All video capture by your home or business’s security cameras is routed to the multichannel recorder, and the recorder in turn stores the video so that you can re-watch it later. Depending on the type of cameras that you use, you will likely use an NVR (network video recorder) or DVR (digital video recorder) multichannel recording system.

So what are multichannel recorders and how do they work? Multichannel refers to the number of inputs – or the number of cameras – that a NVR or DVR can handle. If you use 4 home security cameras, for example, you would require at least a 4-channel NVR or DVR. Today, multichannel recorders can accommodate a growing number of cameras, with high-end models having 64 channels or more.

Here’s how multichannel recorders work: NVR systems work with IP security cameras. The data that is captured on the camera is then sent wirelessly to the NVR, where it is captured. DVRs are used with analog systems. The cameras must be attached via a VGA cable to the DVR. Once the video is sent to the NVR or DVR, it is typically stored on a hard disk, USB thumb drive, or on network storage.

NVR vs DVR: Advantages, Differences and Specifications

The biggest difference between NVR and DVR recorders is the process in which they capture and record video. NVRs are compatible with IP or TCP cameras, which are cameras that can connect to the Internet. In these systems, the video is decoded at the camera and then sent wirelessly to the NVR. With DVRs, the video signal is sent directly to the DVR where the analog video is converted to digital. DVRs require that the camera to be linked directly to the DVR hard drive via a video cable.

  • Remote Viewing: Both NVR and DVR accommodate online viewing, meaning the video from the camera can be watched remotely.
  • Compatibility: NVR systems are only compatible with IP cameras. DVR systems, on the other hand, are compatible with a wider range of cameras. A tip: Be sure the cameras you purchase are compatible with your NVR or DVR system.
  • Video Quality: With NVR systems, the video is compressed at the camera and then sent wirelessly. Because of this, IP cameras perform better and deliver more resolute pictures. Full HD is possible with NVR systems.
  • Camera Placement: NVR systems are more flexible for camera placement, as the only requirement is that the camera is on the LAN network. With DVR systems, cameras must be placed closer to the DVR – typically about 1,000 feet or less.
  • Consistency: Networked IP cameras do take up bandwidth, and they are connected to the Internet. So they are affected by Internet outages or overuse of the bandwidth. Conversely, DVR systems will always capture video, and they’re often capable of running on batteries in the event of a power outage. Thus, their recordings are more guaranteed.

Multichannel Recorders: Installation Tips

In general, DVR and NVR systems have detailed instructions for installation. The good news: They can be set-up by anyone. You don’t need advanced knowledge of technology to set up your systems, although NVR connections are a bit more of a challenge to set-up. Typical set-up includes:

Each system is different, yet typically the process begins with installing the NVR or DVR unit. Some IP cameras must be connected to a POE, or Power over Ethernet, switch. This provides power to the camera.

In an NVR system, each camera is connected via an Ethernet cable to the POE switch, which is connected to a wireless router. The router then connects to the NVR system, so the data from the cables can be captured. In a DVR system, each camera is connected directly to the DVR system via a wired connection.
