We All Have Our Favorite Smart Phone Apps,
but what if your smart phone could control your home? That is exactly what a local Los Gatos company has set out to do. cyberManor was founded in 1999 by company president Gordon van Zuiden, and has since lead the innovation in upgrading homes to run on all digital platforms, using a multi-application design. With their home technology systems, you can control lighting, home security, your thermostat, home audio/entertainment and so much more. They have constructed over 500 smart home solutions all over the Bay Area since their inception and show no signs of slowing.
What their multi-app approach does is provide you with a more comprehensive and always-improving home technology system. Instead of having your home run on a single application that may be subject to constant updates and even risks of becoming obsolete, cyberManor uses a variety of apps that will update on their own, with no charge to you, and will ensure your home is always running smoothly. A few of their recommended apps and software are Sonos, Nest, Tigo, Rachio, TiVo, Kaleidescape, SageGlass, Mobotix, Amazon Echo, and if you can believe it, much more.
cyberManor uses an iOS platform, working with companies that use Apple software for their apps, but also have many apps that run on the Android operating system. A figure below highlights the many aspects of your home that you can control, all on your smart phone. cyberManor technicians will set up iPads or iPad minis in each room of your home, so everything is right at your fingertips.
These tech innovations concerning the home bring more efficiency and sustainability to daily life. With solar power quickly taking over as the best way to power your home, cyberManor and many other companies are designing homes with this in mind. Our responsibility to the planet is to create better living environments for all, and what cooler way to do that then by having the most high-tech home?
