My Gear

I’m using a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 running Windows 10 as my main machine with a Netgear Nighthawk wireless router. My phone is an iPhone 8+ that is fully updated to iOS 13. I also have an iPad 9.7 as well as a Fitbit Flex 2, a Playstation 4 Pro, a Nintendo Switch, a Ring Video Doorbell and Samsung and Vizio Smart TVs.
