We invite you to join Richard on stage at the Smart Kitchen Summit with representatives from Amazon, Moen, WeMo, Williams-Sonoma, and Zonoff talking about how they’re bringing the smart kitchen to consumers today and in the future.
Round two of HomeKit-compatible devices starts to roll out, Lowe's quietly launches the second generation Iris hub, and Mike Wolf discusses why smart kitchen technology is starting to make a big splash in the marketplace.
HomeTech’s Jason Griffing joins Richard at CEDIA 2015 before they canvas the floor to find the latest consumer home technology at this largely Integrator-focused show. Due to the convergence we’re seeing in the market these days, you may be a little surprised at some of the things they find.
In an innocuous knowledgebase article that reads more like a footnote than an announcement, Microsoft has indicated that the Windows 8 and 8.1 Pro Pack and Media Pack (for Media Center) are no longer available for purchase as of October 30, 2015.
As smart home technology and products go mainstream, we're seeing something of a convergence (or perhaps colliding, depending on your perspective) of markets. Popular, new products are making their way into custom installations while companies typically serving custom integrators are beginning to court consumers directly.
This week's news is all about integration: More stuff works with Nest, Insteon works with Echo, Ring works with Wink, and Richard is joined by colleague Matt Wilks to reveal the launch and availability of Homeboy—apps designed to simplify your Insteon experience.
Quirky declares bankruptcy, Hue adds to its product lineup, and Richard gushes over Serena shades and Pico remotes with guest co-host Matt Swatsky from Lutron. He tried to get a scoop on Lutron’s anticipated HomeKit updates, but we’ll just have to wait to hear more about that. It shouldn’t be too long now.
