It’s the little things that make me smile, that make my day. I love it when, out of the blue, I find something that exists without pretense. It’s simple, effective and carefully crafted. In a sea of half working, disposable spam, an honest device that works it’s heart out, without asking for much, is endearing.
Some things are just right. Have you ever owned, or met someone who owned, a Miata (MX5). People love that car; not because it’s the biggest, or the fastest, or the fanciest. They love it because it’s simple and fun. You can take it out to a track and drive it right to the edge, without worrying about expensive parts or high-speed disasters.

- Lighting control on our main floor. The areas of the home we live in most have C4 light switches set at desired lighting levels.

- When I pause a movie to go to the kitchen, the TV room lights automatically turn on and when I come back and hit play, the lights turn back down.
