Interview - Expanding Markets and Product Lines

We are firmly convinced that every premise should have automated control for comfort, convenience and safety - along with remote access. Security and energy management are a natural fit, since one system provides information (occupancy, mode, etc) to the other, and both are things that we want remote access on our smart phones and mobile devices. This helps with energy savings. That's the practical side of the business. The fun side of the business is the built-in audio, music servers and colorful touch-screens. So the driving force will be all of the above - especially as we are increasingly connected in this world.

The Future of Home Control and Automation

We all just want simple, convenient, reliable access to our equipment - and no one wants a dozen remotes on their coffee table. With a home control system, you can consolidate all those remotes and reduce wall clutter too.
