The first Wi-Fi camera from iLuv is said to be an easy to set up imaging device that can be used to increase security at a home or office. The mySight takes the form of a large circular camera on top of a thin-necked stand, and is capable of recording 720p video and uploading it to a cloud storage service for later retrieval or streaming by smartphones and tablets using the accompanying mobile app.
While most Bluetooth speakers are meant to be portable or desktop solutions, some are made to be used outdoors. Many of these speakers either take up a large footprint or are ruggedized, depending on the use, but other times they are simple meant for listening to a song on the porch. Of those set and forget types of speakers, what kind of features should be included to appeal to consumers? Is it huge presence and stereo sound? Or are features like weatherproofing and long battery life in high demand? The SyrenPro from iLuv attempts to include all of those features for the maximum outdoor experience. But does the SyrenPro succeed in trying to be all things to everyone? Find out in our review.

iHome on Thursday revealed it will bring three new alarm clocks with dock for various iOS devices to CES. They include the iW4, which iHome says is the first bedside alarm clock dock to get AirPlay support, the iP18 iPhone and iPod system, and the iD50 AM/FM radio that can accommodate iPads, iPhones and iPods.

iLuv has introduced the first and only dock that can accommodate Samsung's Galaxy Tab devices. The iSM524 ArtStation Pro has an articulating arm that can hold the tablet in landscape or portrait orientation. A remote control is included, and will adjust volume as well as navigate audio and video track. It magnetically attaches to the back of the dock as well.
iLuv today shipped one of the first speaker docks designed primarily for the iPad. The iMM747 is wide enough to cradle Apple's tablet in portrait view and has a flexible dock connector to more safely guide the larger iOS hardware into its spot. It can sync an iPad to a nearby computer through a USB pass-through and yet has enough power to charge as though it were a pure AC adapter.
