All well and good, but realistic plans inevitably shift, sometimes as a result of difficulty, sometimes as a result of opportunity.
So this is our get-real moment. Here's where we determine what it takes to pragmatically pull off the real-world execution of our plans.
For anybody wanting to more or less accomplish any part of what we're doing, this is where we document how to really get these things done.
Here's what you can expect from this section:
ENERGY Elements: The energy utilities in use here provide natural gas and electricity, and we give each intelligent special treatment that we detail here.
ENDURANCE Elements: This is where we cover the measures we're taking to help everything viable for as long as we can manage
AUTONOMY Elements: You don't have to be a geek to love this section but we anticipate that there will be many geeks who find it delicious. This is where we go into detail on the electronics that bring the house awareness and the ability to meet the needs of both its occupants and its own structure, largely without requiring human participation.
SECURITY Elements: Being alert and aware of those who might intend damage, loss or harm is part of this discussion, and in this section we get down to both active and passive measures we implement, plus measures to help law enforcement deal with any miscreants who thwart our preventions and countermeasures.
PRIVACY Elements: Look both for ways in which we help safeguard our physical privacy as well as for the increasingly important measures we are taking to safeguard our electronic privacy.
SAFETY Elements: Dangers lurk in many forms and so must their countermeasures and preventives, described here
SURVIVABILITY Elements: Murphy's Law can't be fought by lawyers. Short of disasters of mythic proportion or attacks in wartime, winds and weather, extremes in the environment and other hazards may, at random, visit any of us. This is not a bunker, not a place being built for eternal survivability, but we still see a requirement to prepare for its occupants’ survival and, as much as possible, survival of the structure . We address those as practical considerations here.
COMFORT Elements: We can remove some sources of discomfort and mitigate others, but the draw here is in how we actively enhance comfort and in how a caboodle of elements get into our control harness to make that happen.
ENJOYMENT Elements: Outdoors, we have to address the lawns and gardens, the recreational features, places for the pets and activities that make us happy, all of which mean designs of systems and infrastructure to optimize that. Indoors, entertainment, exercise, personal places and related elements involve their own systems and infrastructure. We address those here.
OTHER Elements: Let us surprise you with this potpourri of other tricks we're implementing.
As you explore these sections, you may want to know more about the gear here. Our Products section reflects a different organization of its information about those products than this or earlier sections, but we think you can find what you need (and in any case, the Search feature up top can help).
