Parental Controls Portland

Portland can be a great city, but no responsible parent would just send their kid off into it without supervision or resources for finding their way.

The internet is a lot like Portland. It has shady alleyways, strangers who will tempt you with offers that are too good to be true, and plenty of other dangers that are always lurking in the shadows. I

Home Network Integration Portland

Most people here in Portland, including you, probably have a number of technological devices; smartphones, televisions, desktops, laptops, and tablets are highly prevalent in a modern society. If you have any wireless devices at home, you probably have a home network already set up. Wouldn’t it be great if you could hook everything up together – integrate all your devices into a single home network that was able to share content no matter where you were?

Smarthome Consultation Portland

You wake up in the morning and your favorite playlist starts playing. As you get up and start walking around to start your day, the songs follow you around the house, playing on speakers set up in every room. You start to read an article on your laptop during breakfast, and then pick it up on your commute into Portland. Once at work, you see that temperatures will be cooling down, so you set your thermostat at home up so it will be cooler when you get back. Then you hear about a disturbance in your neighborhood, so you keep a live feed from your front door running just in case something happens. On your way back home, you send a signal to your house to unlock the doors. You arrive inside and your after-work playlist starts and you change into comfortable clothes in a warm and welcoming house.

Home Theater

Movie nights are great – get the family together, go out into Portland to a theater, and watch a movie. Everyone bonds and it’s great, but the effect is somewhat diminished when the kid in front of you in the theater is screaming and the lady behind you insists on giving advice to the characters and the teenager on your right won’t stop texting. So why don’t you make the switch to a home theater? You don’t have to worry about any of those issues, and with today’s technology, you can use it for just about anything you can think of. You can hook up your computer to your Blu-ray player, or stream internet radio from your iPad or smartphone. The possibilities are inexhaustible. The only hurdle you’ll have to jump through to get to this tech utopia is the initial setup, and that’s where Nerds On Call comes in.

We can set it all up for you! We’ll even go shopping with you – no really. We’ll make the trip to a local electronics store (here in Portland) and help you pick out all the components you’ll need to make your home theater really become the envy of the neighborhood. We make nothing off commission – we’re not motivated to get you to buy the most expensive speakers or the biggest TV – just what you need. A home theater system should be relaxing from start to finish. You shouldn’t have to worry about what parts to buy, how to assemble it, or how to use it and we can make sure it stays that way.

Here at the Portland Nerds On Call, we know our town well – we know where the deals are and how to find them. After all, we Nerds are always buying electronics for our own home theaters! So give us a call on the phone or chat with us right here on the website to get started!

File Sharing Configuration Portland

So you’re working on a novel? That’s great. But don’t you hate it when you’re working at home on your desktop, typing away, and decide you need a coffee break, go to the local Portland Starbucks with your laptop, open it up, and realize that the latest version of your book is at home? It’s frustrating to be sure. Your last chapter is missing, your notes have old character names, and it’s generally not prudent to progress with your writing.

Printer and Fax Networking Portland

Do you have a printer at your Portland home? If so, do you use it with more than one computer? If you’ve been in this situation, you know the endless annoyance that can come with it.
