The Convenience of Modern Technology

The explosion of technologies and internet connectivity is creating a dizzying number of choices for everyone. Some see this as an amazing opportunity while others feel overwhelmed and don’t know where (or if) they should start. Consider for example that: • CD’s and AM/FM radio have been replaced with streaming media from Spotify, iTunes and Pandora. . • You no longer need a drawer or closet for your media because it stays in this new thing we call “the cloud”. • Thermostats are now controllable through the web. • Surveillance cameras can be seen on your mobile [...]

Surveillance App

We all know there is an app for everything. And although many provide hours of mental escape, most are admittedly trivial. But we are pleased to announce a family of apps that provide security, safety and reassurance. More and more customers are requesting surveillance cameras be included in the home electronics system design. First of all, the sight of a camera, and intruders do look for them, serves as a huge deterrent. But even a very low profile, aesthetic friendly camera greatly enhances peace of mind. • Check for flooding of storm damage while you are out [...]

Updated Lighting

Adjusting the lights in your home through programmed controls is becoming more and more desirable, not only for the convenience but also for reducing energy consumption and costs.   This technology is more widely available than ever before.  Thanks to recent product innovations, retrofitting your current lighting to controllable lighting is as easy as replacing a light switch.   You can choose to replace one switch  or have as many as 200 switches programmed on to the system.  Start with just a single room or area and expand the system to the most logical spaces. The right dimmers, switches and keypads talk wirelessly to a central [...]

Electronics for Elderly Care

I am excited to report that today I have seen an application of our home automation technology being put to use in caring for our elderly. I have have been noodling the concept for a few years and was pleased to find a company that has developed an engineered and scalable solution. The core concept is to install sensors that can monitor the key activities of a loved one like: movement in the home, opening and closing of doors and medicine cabinets, flushing of toilets, use of a vehicle, etc.. These sensors are tied to a processor [...]
