Michael Wolf for Forbes: Being a startup in the smart home industry can be tough. Not only is there lots of competition, but usually you have to spend lots of time and money educating the consumer about what your product does.
Smart home gear tailored towards home security has it a little easier, since most consumers understand that security keeps bad guys away. But when your product is a sub-$100 device with no 24/7 monitoring like the big boys, you then have to spend much of your time creating a compelling message that your low-cost gear can do the job.
This was the challenge faced by Korner, a Seattle startup that makes a patented, ultra-low-cost security sensor.

Blink Presents Multi-Camera System Configurations as the Norm in Enhanced Smart Home Security and Monitoring
With the recent increase in popularity of Category 6A cables, cabling-system installers are now working more and more frequently with dramatically increased cable sizes. Terminating these larger-size cables to standard connectors, which are optimally designed for smaller cables, can be a challenge. New connectors and solutions have been developed to solve the termination and workmanship issues that arise when installers terminate larger-size cables.
This webcast seminar will cover the following termination practices and principles:
- Terminating Category 6A cable to Category 6A shielded connectors
- Terminating Category 5e and Category 6 cable to Category 6 shielded connectors
Sponsored by Honeywell and Platinum Tools, the seminar will use Honeywell’s Category 5e, 6 and 6A cable as well as Platinum Tools’ Category 6 and 6A shielded connectors to demonstrate cable preparation and termination techniques. The demonstrations will provide step-by-step instructions on completing the termination of these larger-size cables. View Webcast:
