Having a fast broadband connection isn’t enough. You also need strong Wi-Fi to maximize your internet connection. Follow these three tips to optimize your Wi-Fi connection at home.

1) Stay near where the router is

This lets you surf better since doors and walls can weaken Wi-Fi signals

2) Only connect devices that you are using

Too many connections slow your Wi-Fi down.

3) Invest in Wi-Fi mesh extenders

When your home is simply too big for a router, add Wi-Fi extenders to reach more rooms. You can call the Globe Tech Squad at 730-1000 for help.

Follow all these steps for a better Wi-FI experience!

Moments: Toledo, Spain

It’s a beautiful city rich in culture

Published

on

Toledo was once occupied by Christians, Muslims, and Jews, and this is evident until now as the city was able to preserve a lot of the structures built from centuries ago. Some of the masterful architecture include the Bridge of Toledo. Built in Baroque style between 1718 and 1732, the bridge links the Pyramids roundabout on the east bank with Marqués de Vadillo Square on the west bank.

Another highlight of the city is the Toledo Cathedral. It’s the prime symbol of the Roman Catholic church in the area. It was built in the 13th century in the Gothic style of Spain and is frequented by tourists — Catholic or otherwise.

Toledo is a beautiful city that’s rich in culture at the heart of Spain. We captured it with the Xiaomi Mi A2.

Manage your AC consumption with Carrier Smart+Cool

#Adulting shouldn’t be that hard

Published

If you live in the tropics, you’re probably gonna want to keep your air conditioner running all the time.

Of course, that’s sure to cost some serious dough. But wouldn’t it be amazing if there were a way to monitor how much electricity your AC consumes in real time?

That’s exactly what Carrier Smart+Cool system does through the AC itself, a bundled smart plug, and the Smart+Cool app.

After setting up the app and connecting it to your home network, you’ll see the magic happen. It shows you how much electricity the Carrier AC is consuming in real time.

You can also set a weekly budget: For example, if you only want to spend 100 pesos a week, you can set up an alert and once you hit the threshold, you’ll get an alert. No bill shock.

There’s also a scheduler to automate when it turns on and off. You can have it turn on right before you get home so it’s nice and cold when you arrive.

Another feature that I think a lot of us take for granted is maintenance and repairs. Air conditioners need to be cleaned regularly. Using the app, you can set a reminder to schedule maintenance. When the day comes, simply go to Service Request to ask for cleaning or repair.

If you encounter any problems, you can also chat with them and get some help.

Straightforward and simple, wasn’t it? Adulting in your own home should never be that hard!
