Protect your machinery...

Safe by HUB6 and Nano Screen Protector:

This is a great gift for students living off campus. Using a home’s old home security system students are able to secure the homes they are living in without being charged ridiculous monthly fees for services that provide questionable protection. Safe by Hub6 uses the security system hardware that homes already have and you and your community monitor your home’s security. This frees users from long-term contracts and monthly fees. It redirects any alerts triggered by your system to your phone, friend, or HUB6's Professional Monitoring when you need a back-up. 

For students that have to drive to class, the Nano Windshield Protector repels water, reduces wiper friction and keeps your windshield free from stains. Rain will bead and roll right off your glass and it even works in the winter as frost and snow will not stick to your windshield. With the Nano Windshield Protector give you get an extra level of protection on your winter drive.
