Tivo Roamio: The Intuitive Multi-room Smart Home DVR

Stream HD Video, Store 1000 of Hours of DVR Content, and Download for Offline Viewing

Tivo Roamio: The Intuitive Multi-room Smart Home DVR

The Roamio is the latest in a long line of consumer level digital video recorders from Tivo. It takes all of the features that home users everywhere have come to love and elevates them to the next level, allowing you one simple solution for all of your over the air TV recording needs.

 Tivo Roamio Features

The Tivo Roamio includes four separate tuners, allowing you to record up to four different shows at the same time. All four tuners are fully HD compatible, meaning that you can enjoy the benefit of full high definition, 1080p or 720p playback whenever you'd like.

To make things even better, the device comes with a 500 gigabyte hard drive - larger than what you would be able to get from renting a DVR on a monthly basis from most cable television service providers. This will allow you to store hundreds of hours of full HD video without needing to worry about what you're going to be forced to delete to make room for the latest episode of your favorite show.

Perhaps the best feature of the Roamio (and the biggest difference from previous iterations of the company's DVR systems) has to do with the built-in Wi-Fi connection and the large number of streaming apps that are available. When you're not using your DVR to record over the air shows, you can use it to connect to the Internet and watch streaming content from Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu and more.

Using the Roamio

Since its inception, Tivo is a company that has always prided itself on simplicity. The Tivo Roamio continues this fine tradition by offering software that is not only easy to use, but an interface that is even easier to navigate. The graphical user interface of the Roamio has been redesigned and streamlined compared to older models, allowing you to begin recording much faster and change any necessary settings with minimal hassles.

Smart Home Connectivity

Because the Tivo Roamio is connected to your home Wi-Fi network, you can also control it in a number of ways that have nothing to do with the recorded remote. You can use iOS and Android apps to use your tablet or smartphone to delete shows, add new recordings and more whenever you'd like. You can even access the DVR while you're away from home to set a recording that you forgot to do before you left the house.

Telsa P85D: The Smart Home Owner's Smart Automobile

Being Green With 681 Horsepower

In the twenty-first century, the recognition of the need for environmental consciousness and sustainability in all facets of our life is ever present. Smart Home Technologies have been transforming our lives towards convenience and cost-savings. Solar panels that absorb energy from sunlight and transfer that energy into electrical charge to power even the largest buildings have been incorporated in residences, office buildings, and many other types of buildings. Smart Lighting controls and systems dispense, distribute, and monitor this green energy towards efficiency that was once only dreamed of. Water conservation techniques and new developments in wastewater treatment have been integral in trying to provide an adequate and pathogen-free water supply to various populations at minimal environmental expense. The efforts towards environmental consciousness do not stop there. One of the more prominent trends in sustainability is the electric car. Electric cars reduce the necessity for fossil fuel consumption and thus reduce carbon dioxide emissions. One of the more prevalent brands in electric car technology is Tesla Motors. After founding PayPal, one of the most successful online financial exchange providers, Elon Musk moved on to bring Tesla Motors into fruition. Tesla Motors has found a very specific niche at the crossroads of the luxury automobile and environmentally conscious technology markets.
