Working From Home Does Not Mean You Need to Sacrifice Quality or Comfort

Whether you are a remote worker veteran or were drafted over the last year, the trend toward work-from-home clearly shows some staying power. While the increased movement from in-office was well underway before 2020, many business communications platforms have made it possible long term.

A recent survey of top CEOs and business founders in Entrepreneur magazine indicated that they expected up to 70% of their workforce to be in the office two to three days a week or remain away from the office for the next three to five years. In addition, studies from Fortune magazine and business groups indicate that employee productivity remained consistent and, in many cases, increased markedly.

Circadian Based Lighting Systems Supplement Natural Light, Providing Better Health and Energy

Light is a vital element for life, fostering nature and humans alike. The natural cycle of the sun’s rise and setting dictates our own. We have evolved to take both cultural and biological cues from the sun.

Developing research has shown that circadian rhythms have a direct influence on our emotional and physical wellbeing. All too often, the standard lighting is designed with a utilitarian eye. These cold and muted fixtures ignore, or even mask, the vibrancy and vigor natural light bestows.

Ketra, purchased by Lutron in 2018, takes a different approach, stating: “Dynamic and always evolving, it’s as alive as the very life it illuminates. And yet, we often treat man-made light as a mere utility, remaining complacent with stagnant, chilly light —when it holds the potential to be so much more.

Intrigued how human-centric lighting control can enhance your home and health in Newport, RI and the surrounding areas? Read on for more information.

Smart Home Features Will Simplify Our Lives This Year

Every day seems to bring another new smart device to the market.  Several key technology areas are driving the innovation – the availability of inexpensive, powerful chips, cloud-based software platforms, multiple wireless technologies, and machine learning – are enabling the addition of intelligent features to a slew of home devices.

Earlier this year at the CES consumer technology show, we saw a host of new smart devices introduced.  Smart lights, speakers, thermostats, coffeemakers, washing machines, irrigation controllers, refrigerators, ranges, and even toilets are getting injections of smart technology.  The technology in your home is accelerating from interesting novelty to genuine usefulness. Automation will bring about a change in how we use and manage our homes.  The functionality of smart home devices and systems is only getting better every year, and as it matures, we will become more accustomed to it and grow to depend on it in our daily lives – much like the smartphone.

Since we're early in this new year, we want to highlight the trends that will be driving the new smart products you will see in 2019.  This is the year when smart home automation becomes mainstream.  If you haven't yet invested in a home automation system for your Groton residence, there is no better time.
