Tech tips to help you live greener

Boot Camp feature for Friday, April 17, 2015

Some tech tips to help you live a little greener.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   There are more and more gadgets on the market that can help you use energy more wisely.   Many fall into the smart home category.   The Consumer Electronics Association’s Jim Barry…

“Smart switches, for instance, that you can plug into the wall.  One called the WeMo Insight for instance, from Belkin, that you plug into the wall and then whatever you plug into that outlet becomes a smart device.”

But all of the constant updates to smartphones and tablets…can mean lots of electronic clutter with older gadgets around the house.  Barry suggests heading to GreenerGadgets.org…

“And plug in your zip code and it will tell you where there is a recycle area near you where you can bring your electronics.”

The CEA would also like you to know that newer LED TVs….consume a lot less energy than older televisions.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin
