jessica and todd have decided to install a “smart home” system.  basically, this will allow for control of audio, some video, heating, window shades, security system and lighting via software controlled by computer, iPhone, etc.  the in-house controller will be an iPad mini. its a pretty cool, whiz bang feature that has a deeply practical application for jessica, given her limited mobility.

so, when the sun glare/heat is too much or night-time privacy is needed, pull out the iPhone and lower the shades; when someone is at the front door, pull out the iPhone and see who’s there!; wanna control what rooms are receiving the piped music, pull out the iPhone; driving home and want some outside lights on for your arrival, pull out….you get it.

should be cool.  now, we just gotta get all the wires run before sheetrock starts!
