Shockingly, there are a lot of people who don’t know how detrimental power plant emissions are. Smart Homes and Smart Businesses play a big part in helping to reduce that waste. According to encyclopedia.com, power plant emissions are from the “combustion of fossil fuels such as coal, gas, and oil. These emissions include sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter, and hazardous air pollutants,” which are all harmful to the environment.
What happens when the release of burned coal, damaging oils, and fossil fuels enter the atmosphere? Simply put, air pollution. Since air pollution is made up of chemicals, it damages the earth. National Geographic lets us know that these chemicals are deteriorative to the human body, harmful to animals as well as plants and can even damage buildings. Reducing these chemicals protects the air and decreases unnatural heat in the atmosphere.
How do we reduce these chemicals? Reduce energy use. When people think of smart buildings, they may also think that those buildings are using more energy than a regular building, but that’s not true. Smart buildings have the capability of controlling exactly how much energy they use. In result, these buildings are recognized for reducing the use of power plants.
The bigger the building the more energy being used, and the more critical it is for them to switch over to be a smart building. As an example, when hotels become “smart-hotels” they help save the earth in a bigger way because they usually take up more energy than a single bedroom home. In hotels, guests can partake in environmental resolutions too. There is always a “one touch green button” that guests can press to engage with the hotel’s ecological goals.
We Are More uses a control system called Control4 Automation to regulate energy use for their installation of smart buildings. Just being able to “set thermostats accordingly” reduces energy waste. Business buildings with automated lights, TVs, sound systems, etc. can also make “closing time” quick and easy by shutting down everything at once. Improved energy management should be a “must” for everyone.
Efficient energy use not only benefits your wallet but also the Earth. The less energy being used by utilizing better energy control through smart buildings, the less chemicals being released into the air, the healthier our planet will be. Thank you, to anyone who owns, manages, or works in a smart building. You are helping to save the environment with technology whether you know it or not.
According to We Are More's lead electrical contractor, Ola Shaw, there are only three. Triad, Sonos, and Bose-- "those are really the only ones I recommend." Why? They all have the same things in common which are contrary to other speakers; quality, longevity, they're all easy to install, they don't mess up the visual of your theater (hidden easily) and easy to use. When paired with Control4, a home automation system, any of these speakers take home theater to another level.
Triad speakers have a rich sound and come in a wide range of sizes. They're recognized for giving out the "most beautiful sound you will ever see." Trippy right? Besides their great sound, they also are subject to customization. A quote I took away from the Triad speakers website states, "Beauty is in the eye. The ear. And even the soul. It is sound you don't just hear, but feel. Sound that inspires and moves you. Sound you love." A good motto for all three of these speaker brands.
Along with bold sound, Sonos speakers also have a wide range of sizes. Not to mention the number of wireless options. Specifically for home theater, they cater to users with their different varieties of surround sound sets. If you aren't looking for a set, they sell all pieces separately as well.
The basis of Bose speakers have always been their values, innovations, and achievements. The three things they continue to hold on to and produce! Bose is continually raising the bar for all their speakers, pushing forward in every way to always make sure their costumes have the best of the best.
When walking around an art museum, people pay attention to detail; colors, materials, and even types of brush strokes. Artists focus on each detail, they need them all to work together for the piece as a whole. The same goes for a home theater.
Quality speakers are what make home theaters come to life. It's not enough to just have a huge tv in a dim room. What about those crazy action scenes in movies, or that intense music, or angelic walks by the lake, being able to hear every bird chirp, every whisper, crashing wave, and last breath. Hearing those sounds can put viewers in real time with the movie. Top notch surround sound is a must for the full impact of any film.
