Ecotality, Cisco connect Internet-savvy EV charger

Cisco Systems and Ecotality, an electric-vehicle charging station company, are collaborating to make EVs part of a home energy-management system. Ecotality's Blink home EV charging station will connect to Cisco's Home Energy Controller, a touch-screen device for managing home energy, as part of early electric vehicle trials with consumers. The integration will let electric car owners schedule charging to take advantage of preferential rates offered by utilities for electric vehicles, typically after 9 p.m. From the Cisco home energy dashboard, there is an application to monitor and program how an electric car is charged, according to the companies. Charging an electric car can pull as much power as an entire home consumes, utilities executives say, so consumers have an incentive to charge at off-peak times. But the system is sophisticated enough to communicate with utilities to get discounts beyond the EV tariff, Ecotality CEO Jonathan Read said in an interview.

Automating Your Home with UPB

A few weeks ago, I was preparing to order a bunch of switches for my house, and was trying to decide the best way to go. I had 8 switches in my last house that were Simply-Automated, so I wanted to stick with those for consistent look/feel. I noticed though, from talking to people and reading posts, that there was misinformation out there. I decided that, now that I'm 2/3rds of the way through a 60+ device install, I'd share what I know and the things I've learned in the process about the Simply-Automated line and different configuration and programming options you may encounter.

Content Insider # 164 - A World of Plenty

What can be better than equal net access for all and a network privacy police force patrolling, monitoring the pipes to protect you?  Sure equal network access isn't in your country's constitution...but it should be!  And just because you're not sure how to act or what to do on the iNet that's not your fault...it's the government's!!
Equal access should be available to anyone/everyone who wants it but that doesn't mean everyone "deserves" a pipd big enough for him/her to watch TV, download Web videos or do video on demand with your "device."  Some cultures remember government police actions and somehow they went astray and the powers were abused.  There are rules, there is commonsense and there is a strong degree of group policing on the Net that is done by the group and the common good.

As someone said be careful for what you wish for because you just might get it.

Content Insider #159 - Trends vs. Fads

Trying to figure out what tech trend (necessity) to buy is one of the biggest challenges people face today.

Holidays are nerve wracking for you, us, everyone.  You want to buy just the right...thing.  You don't want to spend too much or too little.  You want it to be something the recipient will want, will use, will keep, won't go out of style tomorrow.  With the  speed of change in the industry that's a tough order.

Even worse when you're buying something for your business or yourself.   Admit it...look in your store room.  Peek in the garage.  Yesterday's great solutions, great answers are lying around and you wonder how you could have missed the signs.  Our recommendations aren't bulletproof but maybe some of the information will help you think twice and avoid investing in another deadend revolutionary product/solution.  But 20+ years in the industry working with industry leaders will give us a huge edge.

Content Insider #160 - Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is simply the real world we live in only more.  It's there naturally when you watch a sporting event.  You call it up when you use your smartphone to get a recommendation or learn more about the place you're going to visit.  True it's not real real but it is a lot more helpful, more useful than existing in a virtual world.  Every day more AR work is being done to help you make the right decisions.  It's reality but with a little...augmentation.
