Where Were You in Y2K? The Time the World (Almost) Ended

January 14, 2020

Let’s go back to the year 1999. Only the birds were tweeting, and the “Cloud” usually came with a forecast of rain. And then came the panic of Y2K. Would life as we know it completely end? Would the two-digit code we once created literally end all technology?

Going Away for the Holidays? Keep Your Home Secure with Home Automation.

December 06, 2019

If you’re braving holiday travel this year to visit relatives, good luck to you. Seeing family and loved ones is what Christmas is all about, but the getting-there-and-back part is always a bit stressful (and sometimes headache-inducing). Imagine being stuck in the airport, or grounded by a blizzard, and worry begins to enter your mind; Did I remember to arm the house’s security system? Did I leave the garage door open?...

Showroom Spotlight: A Lights Out Location in Indianapolis

September 23, 2019

“Our current showroom in the Indiana Design Center is all about the demo. When we have a client in front of us, rather than starting with individual categories like audio/video or lighting, we incorporate it all into pre-programmed scenes that trigger independent technologies in the home to operate simultaneously. We start the experience at the front of the showroom by pressing the doorbell on the Control4 Door Station. When the doorbell rings, the music inside automatically pauses, then the touch screen lights up and immediately displays the camera from the door station as well as exterior lighting.”

SMART CARE FOR LOVED ONES

August 30, 2019

Intelligent devices are more than fancy gadgets; for the elderly, they also offer the promise of freedom. Advances in home automation products are making it easier to feel safer in our homes, automate routine tasks, and help us gain insight into our behavior. Security devices—like sensored door locks and streaming cameras—mean that the young at heart can stay in their own homes longer. Meanwhile, environmental sensors, like carbon monoxide detectors and automated stoves, can alert caretakers to potential hazards—even from afar.

THE EVOLUTION OF HOME TECHNOLOGY

July 03, 2019

It was 1972 when my parents bought the first microwave on the block. Some neighbors gathered around to watch the first instant cooking machine on the market. They all loitered with bated breath as my father placed a single kernel of popcorn in the middle of the microwave and turned it on. They had time to have a few drinks and chat—the giant box took a long time to turn that single kernel into an edible bit of popcorn.
