Couldn’t agree more, Andrew. Astonishing that this story didn’t get a whole lot of traffic. DIYers have money. They will spend it for a pro-installed system as long as they can tinker. Systems today don’t allow consumers…

The IFTTT platform is the way that millions of people could be introduced to a ‘logic based’ environmental controls. The clients will self-serve using a variety of wifi connected devices - so cool! Its a good thing because the…

The fate of this company was set years ago when the previous CEO decided to not listen to others and simple do what he thought was right… too bad he was dead wrong…. Good luck Cheena, you have one hell of a of a hole to…

The last time I spoke to anyone at Kaleidescape about it (year or so ago), it was indicated that there are likely no updates coming for the music-only side. You will note the conspicuous absence of any mention of it at all in the last couple…
