Becky and I generally rely on the garage door opener to get in and out of the house. (We have a door into the house through the garage.) That also lets us give people the code to the garage door keypad if we need to let someone else have access. The Kwikset Kevo is a similar option, without the keypad. The Kevo lets you make a bluetooth connection to your smart phone to unlock the door when you approach. If you don’t have a smart phone there is a key fob option. If you need to let someone in, you can give them a temporary code for access. It’s battery operated, but you can see that there is a key backup.
I like where this is going, but I don’t think this is there yet. The fact that it isn’t supported by Android is an issue when you want to give the code to the plumber or your brother-in-law to get in. Also, I see this needing to tie into other Smart House features rather than being a stand-alone system. It’s a great start though.
There was a recent discussion on LinkedIn about the value of small town theaters. It linked to another article here. Both made some interesting points that apply to Culver and Marshall County. Culver’s theater, most recently the Uptown Cinema (Formerly the Lakeside Cinema and before that the El Rancho Theater in my lifetime.), shutdown several years ago citing costs for upgrading to digital projectors as a major factor. Around the county, the Princess (or Lido) theater in Argos closed years ago and the same for Bourbon’s Comet and Gem theaters. The Rees Theater (picture here) is no longer operational in downtown Plymouth. The Tri-Way Drive-in Theatre has cited the digital projector issue as a potential obstacle to their continued operation. (More on Tri-Way’s upgrade costs here.)
Honeywell’s AirBRIGHT is a 24-V UV air purifier that installs within HVAC ductwork. According to Honeywell, the system will remove potentially harmful viruses and bacteria from the air as well as eliminating odors from cooking and pets.
The AirBRIGHT system can be installed in existing ductwork. If this is something that interests you, we can put you in touch with qualified installers.
