Intelligent HVAC Systems Can Round Out Your Expertise
As a home technology integrator, one of the most important services that we provide our clients is a whole-house control system that best matches the control needs of each family member.
At the recent May Connections Conference in San Francisco, I listened to Amazon’s David Isbitiski deliver a keynote talk on “Accelerating Smart Home Adoption through Voice Control and Alexa.”
When I started cyberManor in 1999 as a custom electronic integrator focused on providing home networks for our clients’ homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, I was intrigued by the possible integration of digital photography and the large display of a television screen.
The International Consumer Electronics show held in Las Vegas last month attracted greater than 170,000 attendees from more than 150 countries.
Apple made several important new product announcements at their “Hey Siri” event in September. The most important one affecting home entertainment was the announcement of its latest-generation Apple TV.
I’ve had my new black sports band Apple Watch for about three weeks and have now developed some first impressions on what I think its impact could be on the custom electronics industry.
On March 9, Apple announced that it would start shipping its new watch at the end of April with prices starting at $349.
At cyberManor we consider ourselves to be the digital consultants and curators for our clients’ homes.
