Which One Should I Use, Part VIII

Troubleshooting Three-Way and Four-Way Switch Circuits

(DVD) Digital Versatile Disc

"In the future, DVD will offer the viewer multiple camera shots so you can view a scene from different angles and levels. DVD's will be recordable, rewritable, and reusable ... a big plus for the computer industry"

Cardio

"I haven't had much luck convincing my better half that home automation systems are easy to use but when I asked her to look at the touchscreen operation of the Cardio, she was enthusiastic and understood immediately what was required to operate the system. That fact alone is enough to convince many that the system is worth the effort."

HOME AUTOMATION OUTSIDE NORTH AMERICA

"A major announcement affecting the building and home automation markets in Europe was made in June 1997. The Executive Director of EHSA announced that the EHS, EIB, and BatiBUS communications protocols would be merged into one protocol."

How it all started

"The idea of using the existing AC wiring to transmit signals to control lights and appliances was conceived (like so many Pico/X-10 ideas) over several drinks in a bar one night. If we had known then how long it would take us to get to where we are now, we would probably have moved on to project X-11 :-)"

Interoperable Control Systems

"The LonPoint System includes a family of interface modules that provide various combinations of digital or analog inputs and outputs along with numerous software function blocks, allowing seamless connectivity to legacy field devices and to LonMark devices."

Powerline Communication Security Issues

"When installing an automation or control system in your home that utilizes the powerline for communication, you should begin by educating yourself on what potential security risks there are and use sound judgment in determining how realistic the security breech scenarios are."

Automated Lifestyle

"When you think of the future and all it's endless possibilities, imagine the ideas that living an Automated Lifestyle can bring. The comforts of the future are available today. The idea of a home being intelligent is no longer just a vision. These systems are available today and are very affordable."

GPS Vehicle Tracking Project

"Stargate announces when the vehicle is at landmarks around town such as the mall, church, school, etc. Or if the vehicle is between these locations, it merely announces the vehicle's speed and heading."

HA Standards

"Consumers are willing to buy reasonably priced solutions as long as there is no danger that their purchase will become obsolete i.e. there is a standard. Manufacturers also need standards before making the large investments necessary for low cost production. An ideal standard will allow developers to differentiate their products with features and include the flexibility to evolve over time according to the needs of the market."

How to Shop for Budget Home Theaters for Christmas

"One hot item that I think that you will be able to get for a good price is a DVD player. As a fairly new technology, this is its first Christmas. Companies like Sony, Pioneer, Toshiba, Panasonic, and various others, will try to out do each other in DVD sales this year."

How X-10® fits into the Distribution Automation & Demand Side Management Market

"Brazilian electricity supply, in common with most countries, follows a pattern of peak and low consumption periods. CEMIG (Companhia Energetica de Minas Gerais, a State Electric Utility Company in Brazil) have identified that they actually already have the capacity to support a larger customer base, provided they can spread demand more evenly. This can be achieved using dual-rate incentives or load-shedding."

INTRODUCTION TO THE SMART HOUSE® SYSTEM

"The fundamental goal of SMART HOUSE is to provide integrated wiring for all current home services and to include provisions for home automation technology. Cost savings are promised from reduced labor to install an integrated wiring system.

LC-6-X10 Appys

"In the most common application, the board takes input from a driveway sensor and turns on lighting when a car approaches the house. This is where the LC-6-X10's photocell and built in timer are very useful features"
