The ZigBee Home Automation Standard

ZigBee was created with the vision of enabling connectivity and sensing and control capability to every day devices. The Internet of Things is now becoming a reality as the growth of devices being connected is largely fueled by low cost, low power, scalable networks in homes and buildings.

Projector System Principles and Practices

Lamp-free projectors are now main stream with brightness up to 6500 lumens and in the long run they will provide a reduced operating cost in terms of lamp replacement and labor as well as power consumption.

Integration of VRV / VRF Air- Conditioning Systems and Home Automation / BMS Controllers

VRV and VRF Air-Conditioning systems are more sophisticated in their control systems incorporating built-in communication, unlike the traditional Central and Split AirConditioning systems that typically incorporate only a basic form of on/off control logic.

Zigbee and the "Really Smart" Home

The Real Smart Home consists of sentrollers - sensors, controllers and actuators like motion sensors, temperature sensors, smoke detectors, humidity sensors, leakage detectors, light sensors, etc., are all connected to the internet. Cloud based apps receive this data and compares it with expected or desired values, and then transmits a signal to the home actuators which control the various systems.

The Next Great Thing: Chasing Innovative Products is a Long, Hard Trek

The boss' challenge is to figure out which are the good ideas and which are great ideas. But the real innovator? It's the customer … he/she/they determine what idea is insanely great and which is…

Mini-EMS System Offers Mega-Savings

Monitoring and programming thermostats in a home can be tedious, in a modern commercial building it's time consuming, and at multiple commercial location the task is nearly daunting.

Monetization of Connected Homes

The purpose of this study is to increase our understanding of new market entrants; rising consumer demand and willingness to pay; potential areas for growth; and select business models used by the industry to optimize revenue.

Guide to Home Automation

Like a remote control, Home Automation can give you the power to control your security system, door locks, lighting and temperature at any time, from anywhere!

What to Consider When Using Tablets and Smartphones in Home Automation Systems: Part 1

The Rise of the Consumer Mobile Device

Choosing The Right Screen Size For Your Space

The BIG screen experience is so much more impressive and enjoyable than even the largest plasma or LCD at literally a fraction of the cost - and now YOU have total control over the size!

Keeping People: Entertainment and Education Connects Better than Selling

More and more people are online with the devices of their choice. So why is it so difficult to not only get them but retain them as customers, long-term customers?

Reboot that Device from Way Down Under

The main area of use is in racks where service personel can reboot devices that are not responding. Apart from accessing via a browser there is an iPhone and Android app to allow service technicians to take action while on the go.

iPhone Control of your Home Systems

iRule uses the home's Wi-Fi connection to send the command from a phone or tablet to the IR converter or a network device. This happens in a fraction of a second.

Business Apps: BYOD Created Business Opportunities, Business Headaches

People bring their own devices, their own data, their own apps, their own communities; and they move personal/company information where it is most convenient, most useful for them.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
