Is It Time To Automate Your Hydroponics Setup?

There are a number of motivations for automating a hydroponics system.

Is System Design Necessary?

Many of us in the AV Integration business have been doing this for a long time, 24 years for me. We are seasoned professionals who have done our fair share of home theaters, distributed audio and video, lighting and sub-system control integration. We know what works for us and what doesn't. We can walk a house while it's being framed and just point out the speaker, keypad and TV locations. We don't need a design; we can assemble a distributed audio system in our sleep while planning the control system over breakfast, right? Wrong!

An Experiment In Home Automation Creative Use of Home Automation Resources and the Creation of an In

The real estate market in a megacity like S£o Paulo, Brazil, has a strong competitive trend. Consumers compare among the latest launched condos in their favorite locations, searching for the ideal new home. The final price of the apartment or house depends mainly of two factors: size (useful area) and location. But, one can say that the medium price by square feet tends to be the same, despite some differences in constructive details. In this competitive scenario, the inclusion of Home Automation as a new attribute to a real state product distinguishes it from others. So, builders and investors may gain in sales speedy, improve their margins and associate an innovative image to their venture. Assuming that hypothesis, the creators of a new condo located in an emergent area of the city decided to contract a System Integrator office to design a special project, including several technological solutions rarely finded in the neighborhood. And, more than this, determined to build a "model apartment" in order to show all this stuff working in a real situation. This temporary "showroom" would run next to the sales stand.
