Meet Myro

Two+ years in the making Myro:Home is now ready for public consumption. If you have an HAI Ethernet-Enabled Home Automation Controller you owe it to yourself to download a trial version of Myro:Home. This is a RC and I expect some bugs so please help me help Myro get bug free. I'm going to get some much needed sleep now.

P.S. I will start blogging about non-Myro things again :) Tags: , , , ,

It has taken a long time to get the resources together to finish up my home theater but I've finally got it done. You can see more photos and read about the theater's specs over at the Myro Control Home Theater Forum.

If anyone is interested in any consulting, design, or purchasing home theater/automation products I'm a dealer for many lines. Feel free to contact me. Tags: , , ,

EPSON Ensemble HD — A Proper Home Theater-In-A-Box

Home Theater
August 12, 2008 1 Comment

Call me a Home Theater snob, but, I don't think a room with any size flat panel TV is a "Theater Room". There has to be at least a 100" screen (fixed or motorized) and a decent projector (I prefer the JVC RS2). Fully controlled lighting, motorized screen curtain, masking, tiered seating and sound treated walls. If the room doesn't consist of all of these, then it's just a media room.

EPSON is heading in the right direction with the Ensemble HD system. It includes everything you need to get sound and projection into your "Theater Room" on a budget. The system includes a 100" motorized screen with integrated speakers, projector (720p or 1080p) with ceiling mount that includes the rear speakers built into the mount. All the cables, a universal remote, subwoofer, and amplifier/receiver. EPSON designed the system so it can be installed in about 4 hours.

The 720p system retails for $5000 while the 1080p version goes for $7000. Not bad for a complete audio/video system... for more information check out the EPSON Ensemble HD website. Tags: , ,

Home Automation Forum : Now Open!

I get a lot of email daily asking me about my home automation system and the types of control, wiring, devices, etc. I use. I've decided as part of Myro Control to open up a forum that will allow for this type of discussion to happen in an easier and more efficient way than me replying back to hundreds of people. So if anyone has any questions about home automation please post them in the newly formed forum.

P.S. If there isn't a forum topic that suits your question, please post it in the "General Home Automation" forum and I'll create forums based on the questions.
