Electric cars are the future, but the worry about being stuck at the office without enough power to get home is right now. Bri-Tech, a world leader in home automation and cinema technology has recently developed a system to put that worry in the past.
Symbiant EVCM, an addition to their existing Symbiant Home Automation System, is a feature that prompts the user via touch screens and text if it does not sense load on the electrical circuit feeding their vehicle.
“We’re extremely interested in clean, green technology for home and automotive use, and we’re excited that this new product may convince more people to utilize electric vehicles,” says Brian McAuliff, Senior Designer for Bri-Tech Inc.
A simple set up screen accessible from a home control panel, or smartphone, allows the user to set a “scheduled charging detection period.” If Symbiant EVCM does not detect a proper charge within that time frame, it sends an alert on the screens and via text, or email, to the user. It can also flash lights in the user’s home to alert that there is an issue. Symbiant EVCM logs the time of charge and can be set to alert if minimums are not met, so the user is never left without charge when headed to the office, or home. This new feature is compatible with all Symbiant systems so it can be added to existing installations easily.
Much has been said about the unique characteristics of the Tesla, but owning one has not really been much of a consideration for typical sports car enthusiasts. Despite the sound that the car doesn’t make, the stellar performance will leave the other sports sedans behind.

When you imagine living in luxury, an in-home cinema system often tops the list of “must have” items. But who has the space to dedicate a quarter of their home to a theatre?
Maybe you’ve even considered ditching the living room for a theatre, but quickly dismissed the idea as too outrageous. The good news is, you don’t need more than a spare bedroom, or furnished basement get the experience of a world class theatre right in your own home.
Couple’s theaters are rapidly becoming the “must have,” splurge for empty nesters and new retirees. They offer a bit of cinematic paradise nestled perfectly in little Johnny’s former room, or in that finished basement that doesn’t get enough use with the kids out of the house. These home theaters are perfectly tailored to your taste, and are relatively quick to install in most homes.
There are three major changes in clients’ requests for home theater and all around higher performing spaces: Clients are interested in performance and not just a cool looking room.
Acoustics: Clients have been asking that designs included acoustical design which is more than just some simple panels. These include bass diffusers and dispersion elements hidden behind stretched fabric. The room is designed in 3D and then analyzed to determine speaker placement and sound control elements. Afterwards microphones are placed in the room to digitally calibrate.

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.
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.
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.

Our president, Brian McAuliff, was recently interviewed by LI Pulse Magazine to shed some insight on home security, as well as other advancements in the technology industry. If you’d like to read the published article, click here! Or, if you want to read the full uncut interview, see all of his answers below!
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.”
Thanks to our latest interface design, it is now easier than ever to operate your system. Unlike our competitors’ systems that leave you in a state of confusion because of their complexity and plethora of buttons, our interface design makes it painless to operate your system.
