Michael, this is exactly the type of story that show/demonstrate to home technology professional how a good, bulletproof, healthy and well managed with all possible best practice a residential network should be today. We are not using technology anymore just to turn on TV and change the lights to “scenario #3”. We also use technology to maintain and save life. There is going to be a huge business about health and IOT in the next years that will rely on a good network. I hope all our industry will understand that network is a serious business, and of course always use remote monitoring grin
All he best to your son, and hope you’ll show us the way.

I agree with Bruno.  This is a refreshing read.  This is a subject that can hit home with more clients than it does not.  Over the years we’ve had several opportunities to customize a system to the needs of a disabled client, but the industry is full of limitations on a product level.  We (and sometimes the client) can come up with tons of “what if we could…” scenarios, but with no way to fulfill it.  I’m looking forward to the followup piece, and I hope this can inspire some interest in the right manufacturers.
