HomeVision Home Controller

I'm not going to redo the in depth review of HomeVision here. My original review is still relevant so click here if you want to get into the nitty gritty of this controller. Suffice it to say that when I got my new HomeVision it only took a few minutes to change over all of my schedules and devices from the Enerlogic system that I have used for the past 10 years. I did not lose one day of control and in fact added scenes and modes that I had been thinking about for some time. Not having to write and debug control code has made this experience a pleasure.

Remote Anywhere

Remote Anywhere allows consumers to control their satellite receiver, A/V components, TiVo™, DVD player, tuner, etc., from other rooms up to 150 feet (46 meters) away. This capability is especially useful to owners of satellite systems looking to view programs from a single receiver or recorder on different televisions throughout the home, without purchasing another unit or incurring additional monthly programming charges.

Siemens Gigaset 2420 Cordless Telephone System

The complexity of the system is not overwhelming. The functions are practical and easy to use. No ... you can't browse the web or do the dishes ... but you can get down to business quickly and easily. Isn't that what you need a phone system for?

Proxim SymphonyHRF Cordless Network

For a simple home network focusing on internet sharing and a bit of device and file sharing this is a great solution. Installation was simple and the engineers made sure most things are intuitive ... not too much network jargon. Support is only a phone call away and I had a pleasant experience with them too.

Marrick Lynx-X10PLC

The unit ships with a copy of Home Control Assistant (HCA) software (see HomeToys review) and set-up took only a few minutes. Just plug it into the wall and serial port ... install the software ... and test the operation. HCA has a menu option that lets you test and configure the PLC. A very nice feature allows you to adjust the transmission power and receiver sensitivity.

Nike psa[play 120 Digital Audio Player

To get another opinion about this device I asked my better half to give it a try. She's a fitness buff and I thought she would be a good test subject. Well ... I haven't seen it since ... nor have I talked to her much.

Wireless Tower of Babel

If there's a Wireless Home Networking lesson to learn from the Tower of Babel, it's that we don't need (and will never have) one wireless standard for homes, offices, schools, airports, restaurants, grocery stores, bowling alleys, and beauty shops. As intriguing as it may sound, it is not practical or desirable to have one wireless standard for all environments, purposes, and types of devices.

D-Link DI-713 Wireless Network Adapter

The DI-713 works well with great potential in the Home as well as the Automated Buildings industry. The wireless range should completely cover small buildings and cover the complete floor of a large building when plugged into the LAN connection on each floor.

Audiotron Digital Music Player

The AudioTron by Turtle-Beach is nice affordable place to start for a Home MP3 Jukebox. This is a new technology and the Audiotron is one of the originals. As history has taught us, this technology will improve, and prices may drop ... but as for now AudioTron is a good choice for anyone who wants a Home MP3 player for a reasonable price ... now.

Connections 2001

Market studies still point to huge growth over the next few years but I feel that the honeymoon is over and it's time to offer some real value to consumers in order to bring them onboard. Once you experience a broadband connection you can never go back. If ever there was a "hook" to grab consumers and hold their attention ... this is it.
