How to get your LG Magic Remote to work with the Sonos ARC

How to get your LG Magic Remote to work with the Sonos ARC

There is currently a lot of confusion around getting the Sonos ARC setup with LG tv's. Most of this discussion is around the eArc connector support and whether your specific model of LG TV will output Dolby Atmos.

For the purposes of this post I just want to focus on one thing - the LG Magic Remote. 

The TL;DR here is that you need to re-run through the soundbar setup on your TV - it's nothing to do with the Sonos app.

Manage third-party tag execution using the Tealium Load Order Manager

SEO link baiting titles aside, learning to manage when your third party tags execute can be an important performance task to ensure your website remains as fast as possible for your end users.

Tealium has begun rolling out a new Client-Side Experiment called 'Load Order Manager' that will let you very easily see the order of execution Tealium is going to take when firing third-party code on your website. Everything from the Pre Loader right up to post Dom Ready is visible in the tool.

Getting the Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 to work on a Yale Mantis door

Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 box

I recently decided to dip into the Smart Home world in a more serious way. I've had a few IKEA smart power adapters but I was keeping away from the more expensive larger items like security systems, video door bells and smart locks until I was able to do a bit more research on them.

In Europe the selection of official HomeKit approved devices isn't as good as our US cousins have it. Having said that, one smart lock device that piqued my interest was the Nuki Smart Lock 2.0 system.

This device attaches to your door on the inside so the outside is the same as before. There is no expensive locksmith work to be carried long as your door is compatible. Nuki have a great Door Compatibility guide on their site that's really useful. However, as my door had a thumb knob on the inside I wasn't 100% sure if the Nuki Smart Lock would actually work on my door.

Add fully compliant accessibility to your site using AccessiBe & Tealium

If you run a website chances are that you've heard about accessibility. Giving users the ability to easily navigate your website using just a keyboard or screen reader is not only extremely beneficial to those users but also in many parts of the world now a legal requirement.

Retro fitting accessibility that complies with all of the regulatory bodies can take a while for your dev team to roll out. To help business out over the last few years a number of companies have sprung up that off businesses to fully comply with accessibility standards by just injecting in some javascript and a few lines of code. One such company that I've used in the past is AccessiBe

You can easily add the AccessiBe code to your website by following their integration guide but for this post I'm going to focus on how to add AccessiBe using Tealium.
