Ready for take-off?

 

 

We’ve heard about it for decades, but is VR (virtual reality), with its trusty side-kick AR (Augmented Reality), finally ready for prime-time?  Over the holidays, we all watched the commercials with people of all ages laughing, gasping, sobbing as they were submerged into a deeper reality.  It’s only now that we’re seeing the potential, and how amazing it truly is.

Prevalent in the gaming world, augmented reality blends real-world with virtual world, allowing users to interact with virtual content in a real setting.  Let that sink in for a minute.  Imagine where that will take us.  Here’s a few highlights from the floor of CES2017 Vegas.

AR goes beyond any other experience and its applications are as infinite as its experiences.  We’ll explore the gear in another post.  For now, just fathom where this incredible technology can transport you!

At home:  Take a destination virtual vacation

At the workplace:  Recruiting, training, visualization and providing a real connection for your remote workforce.

At play:  Pokemon was the tip of the gaming iceberg. Six flags partners with Samsung to launch a VR Roller coaster! And mixed reality? Coming soon to an Xbox near you (2018)!

In retail:  VR/AR enhances experiential marketing and customer engagement

In healthcare:  Imagine if your surgical team had access to augmented reality?   And for those experiencing low vision (blurry vision, tunnel vision or blind spots that can’t be corrected), a University of California, Berkeley Professor is working to bring a lower cost aid to this community, helping to restore their sight.

In education:  True abstract learning.

In worship:  I can only Imagine.

We’re just getting started -Ready for take-off?  At the speed of light! Mr. Sulu, set course for Earth. Punch it!

Your Automated Vacation Home. A Luxury Get-Away & Source of Income

Lighting - Home Automation Mooresville, NC

Your vacation home should be just that, a vacation.  It’s a restful sanctuary free from headaches, unnecessary chores and day-to-day stress.  This is where an automated home can shine.

You may be imagining your home on the Outer Banks with automated control of your lights, shades and water features. Or perhaps your Great Smoky Mountain retreat with outdoor audio, a weatherproof LCD and remote control of your fire feature.  These features add enjoyment and value to your property.  But when you’ve made your Friday afternoon escape and pull into the drive, the last thing you want is a surprise such as a burst water heater, an A/C that’s been left on or, worse, evidence of a break-in.

From basic security features and keyless entries to more sophisticated occupancy and water sensors, your home can alert you should something go amiss.  If a pipe bursts you can react immediately and get a service technician on the property, hours before you may be able to arrive.  You can grant him access and have the repair performed before long-term damage can occur.

As a rental property, there is a tremendous perception of luxury and value in automation.  Easy navigation of the home’s unfamiliar entertainment system, for example, will increase their overall “experience” and enjoyment.  And they’ll appreciate the added security, particularly in remote areas.  You’ll appreciate that you can remotely mange your guest network, controlling which devices are allowed to be controlled, as well as the ability to turn off the A/C or heat when a door is left open.

Upon your guests’ check-out, you can remotely assess the home’s condition, ensure the lights are off, the shades are closed, the appliances are as they should be, the thermostat is set and the gate is latched.

When you’re ready to plan your perfect vacation get-away home, give us a call at 704-696-2792 or email at [email protected], even if it’s out of our area.  SoundVison can help design your luxury system and work with a trusted network of integration partners to make sure you’ll receive the service you’ve come to expect from us.
