        XiO Cloud®: now easier to try and buy

        While it may take years of development time before we can get a new physical product in your hands – picking components, designing circuits, writing firmware, and manufacturing hardware before it goes on a truck to you – our software development teams can ship XiO Cloud® service updates large and small every few days and have it arrive instantly when you open your web browser. Those differences don’t end with the engineering and manufacturing process – they extend all the way to how we make it possible for you to try and buy our products. That’s why we’re excited to tell you how we’re making it easier to get XiO Cloud into your hands.

        How to enhance your design build projects and clients’ lives with wellness

        There is no doubt that 2020 has been a year full of twists and turns, and one thing that this year has guaranteed is change. Over the past several years, I have watched our industry start to adapt and focus more on wellness in the home. As a result of the global pandemic, this year has brought an even greater focus on the topic of wellness technology and the value it can bring to our industry and clients. After recently attending Crestron NEXT and the CEDIA Virtual Expo, it was clear that Crestron’s technology and many others have changed for the better. Crestron has brought wellness technology to the places that clients are spending more time in than ever before, their homes.

        Seven myths about smart homes

        The “smart” revolution began several years ago with smartphones (a.k.a phones) and has extended in recent years to thermostats, doorbells, alarm systems, and kitchen appliances. Smart devices are so ubiquitous that the term “smart” is overused to the point that it is almost meaningless. Companies are eager to jump on the bandwagon and claim their products are “smart,” and consumers proudly claim they have a smart home because they have lighting control. Misconceptions about smart homes are prevalent and create confusion in the marketplace. This can have deleterious effects on businesses and under serve consumers. Here are seven of the most popular misconceptions about smart homes.

        In the last several years, increased interest in enabling more and more conference rooms with communications and conferencing technology has been driven by noticeable shifts in how we work, in the spaces in which we work, and even with whom we work.
