Most computer users would know that properly shutting down a desktop PC is very important to prevent your files from getting corrupted and it also minimizes the risk of damaging the hard drive. However, there are times when things are just out of your control such as an unexpected power failure or your kid pulling the plug out of the socket which causes a forced shut down. One way to keep your computer running when there is no electricity, giving you enough time to properly shut down your computer, is by using a battery backup known as Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

Webcams are very common nowadays and most, if not all modern laptops come with one built-in at the top center above the screen. It can be used for a lot of different purposes such as making a video call (chatting, demonstration, conference, webinar), taking pictures of yourself and even logging in to a computer using face recognition. A webcam can also be used as a surveillance camera by installing the correct software and configuring it to automatically record videos, notify you via email and perform custom actions when a motion is detected. This allows you to setup a powerful home based CCTV to monitor a section of your home which is most likely a source of break-ins without spending unnecessary money to install an expensive complete home surveillance system.
