As part of an ongoing Inter Province Community Care Initiative, Lodge Buchan St John from Broxburn has donated over £1 million in foodstuffs, toys, and clothes to a wide range of good causes across Scotland. These donations have been made possible through business links from one of our Lodge Past Masters, Kevin Taggart. Kevin has worked tirelessly to ensure that all the items have been distributed to a wide range of organisations across all areas of Scotland, sharing with other Masonic Lodges, local charities, and various groups.
We have now received a donation of Silvercrest Gateway ‘Zigbee’ Smart home devices. These plug into your existing broadband router and will allow to connect and control ‘smart’ lights, plugs, motion detectors, cameras, and all with the ability to control them from your smart mobile phone. This includes the ability to link products from a range of suppliers, including Philips Hue Lights as an example.
The app that you will use on your smart phone offers support for Google Home and Google Assistant, including voice control. All in all, a great addition to your home network, and truly offering every user a ‘smart home’
We are going to organise for these devices to be collected at various locations across West Lothian, and beyond if necessary. If you would like to receive one of these Gateway hubs, simply send a text message to 07977 256923, stating your NAME and where you LIVE, for example DONALD UPHALL. We will then let you know when the device will be available to uplift in your local area.
