Winner of the First Annual mControl “Digital Home” Contest Announced

The next frontier for my digital home will no doubt be home automation. Sorry honey, I meant our house. At any rate, I am always looking for ideas on how to implement a quality HA solution. Link Your House won the first contest due to their fine work installing HA packages in new homes. Perhaps next year mControl will have a amateur and pro category?

From the article:

The standard package is built around mControl digital home software and an AOpen Intel Viiv® compliant, Microsoft Windows® XP Media Center Edition computer. Included with the upgrade are six Z-Wave enabled light switches, two Z-Wave thermostats and integration with a DSC security system. IP surveillance cameras are also available as an option. With the installed package customers are provided with a state-of-the-art digital media system and full control of their house – control can be done via an attached TV or Internet Browser. Link Your House also provides a standard method of accessing the digital home system remotely.

“We are honored to win the first inaugural mControl “Digital Home” Contest,” said Frank DeFilippis, system designer from Link Your House. “mControl plays a critical part in the Digital Home upgrade at Carter Grove. With sales now underway at Carter Grove, early reports from the agents are extremely positive.”
