The Delicate Signal and the Future
by Michael Green of Michael Green Audio

Technology has taken a turn and we are taking that turn with it whether we think we are or not. We have finally realized how delicate the single path really is and we are beginning to see better and better results the smaller we get.

This will be one of my shortest articles on HomeToys.com Why? Because it is about something that the industry (especially certain parts of it) needs to realize. In the electronic world, bigger is not better and is quite the opposite.

Technology has taken a turn and we are taking that turn with it whether we think we are or not. We have finally realized how delicate the single path really is and we are beginning to see better and better results the smaller we get. We definitely don't need to be driving around these tanks of a system anymore to get the same fidelity. The fact is that the room, and the entire home environment, will be a place that will reflect a holistic, good sound approach.

In a way, this is sad. It sounds like an industry that is about to die. But, instead, I think we should embrace the future and realize the accomplishments that have happened in such a short period of time. We, as a society, have always gone through these changes, and this is one to embrace with a smile.

I say let the collectors of the "old" enjoy their hobby and, for the rest of us, let's embrace the exciting new world of high fidelity at its best. Let's not kill the sound but bring it to life and make it practical for the entire world to enjoy.

This year, you will not see me at the high end portion of the CES. Instead, you will see me at the convention center enjoying the future and thinking of ways to make it better.

You may visit us at www.tuneland.info, the CES, or read the report I will give in the next HomeToys.com article, as I write about the future.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
