Hold Off on that IOS Update

iOs 8 may be the biggest iOs to date, and while new features seem like a good reason to upgrade, there are also some very compelling reasons to exercise restraint.

#1 Backup

Before you jump head first into an iOs upsdate, make sure all your important data is backed up! Take your time and go through your entire phone, especially if you have photos, text messages, financial information and other documents that you can’t afford to lose. Don’t rush into updates which may put your data at risk.

Lighting & Mood

Did you know that lighting can affect your mood and behavior? Multiple studies have been conducted on the subject of mood and lighting and many have concluded that the color and intensity of light does in fact affect us in several different ways including our physical health.

For example, poor lighting can make us feel depressed or ill. Also Poor natural lighting can trigger depression and actually has a negative effect on our immune systems. Bright artificial lighting or lighting that causes rooms to appear overly bright, makes us to feel nervous and on edge in the space. Ever notice how fast food restaurants are really bright? It is because you are more likely to eat quickly and leave.

Insufficient lighting can cause us to suffer emotional stress and even physical illness if we are exposed for long periods of time. Natural lighting through windows and skylights has calming effects on our minds and emotions.

Not only does the brightness of light affect us, but the color of light does too.

1. What are some of the best advances in home security you have seen over the last year?

Brian: “As technology becomes more and more prevalent in people’s lives, people are becoming interested in connecting their security system to all aspects of their life.  Clients are expecting full control of their systems from their smart phones and devices.  Our firm has been offering phone based control for over a decade but the new systems are easier to use and have features that bring up the alarm log and see what actually is going on.  Also, adding control of door locks has been popular as has connection to automatically shut off water main in the event of a low temperature detection.  Another advancement that we offer at our firm is an oil level sensor, which notifies a client if their oil level is low, and I consider this another huge advancement in our industry.”
