family's new technology-driven
home. They enjoy
fully automated, one-touch
access to audio and video,
multiple zones of lighting
control, automated shades,
HVAC and more.
All products were
specified and installed by
Epic Smart Homes, an HTA
Estate Certified dealer
that serves residential and
commercial clientele out of
offices in California, Texas,
Nevada and Hawaii.
" Nortek Control invited us
to help design and implement
a comfortable, safe,
enjoyable and - most importantly
- specially adapted
smart home experience
for the Guerrero family, " says
Scott Ruzich, president/CEO
of Epic Smart Homes. " It was
a very rewarding experience,
and I encourage anyone who
has the chance to participate
in the Gary Sinise Foundation
program to support
these brave servicemen,
servicewomen and families. It
is truly an honor to give back
to these heroes. "
Epic Smart Homes incorporated
a 2GIG security
system, Panamax power conditioners,
Lutron lighting and
shades and a Leon Speakers
sound bar - all controlled by
the Elan app, which provides
a universal and consistent
GUI to all interfaces.
Adds Richard Pugnier, vice
president of marketing at
Nortek Control: " Our involvement
with the Gary Sinise
Foundation is one of the most
rewarding things we do. Warfighters
like Captain Guerrero,
who sacrifice so dearly for our
freedom and safety, deserve
every effort we can make to
help restore their quality of
life. We are also extremely
proud of our dealers, like Epic
Smart Homes, who partner
with us on these unique
projects and freely contribute
their time, expertise and full
commitment. " CE Pro
Epic Smart Homes provided an Elan control system and
other Nortek Control technologies on the Guerreros' home.
experiences, not only in the AV industry but throughout our
communities as well, and I'm incredibly proud to partner with
and support organizations that share this vision, " says Rashid
Skaf, Biamp president, CEO and co-chairman. " Each of our
grant winners is making an impact in local and underserved
communities and helping to connect people through the
power of audiovisual technology. We look forward to being a
part of their continued growth. "
Biamp's charitable leadership committee lends support to a
variety of global organizations and sponsors volunteer opportunities
for employees. Past and current partner organizations
include the Biamp PDX Jazz Festival, Theater in the Grove,
Shared_Studios, and Habitat for Humanity.
Just Add Power Lends
Multipurpose Space to
Local Nonprofits
EARLIER THIS YEAR as the grand opening of its new Seminole,
Fla., headquarters was delayed due to COVID-19, Just
cepro.com
Add Power supported local nonprofit organizations by allowing
them to use the facility's multipurpose room as a training
and meeting space, the company announced in May.
Organizations that utilized Just Add Power's multipurpose
room include the Homeless Leadership Alliance of Pinellas and
Directions for Living, which took advantage of the space to
provide Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training. Created by the
National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), CIT is a 40-hour
program designed to educate police officers in recognizing
when individuals have mental illness, de-escalating crisis situations,
and navigating people toward resources and help.
" Nonprofits have struggled to provide continued training
and conduct meetings during COVID because many social
service buildings are closed, aren't admitting outside personnel,
or just don't have rooms large enough to allow for social
distancing, " says Ed Qualls, CEO and founder of Just Add
Power, makers of AV-over-IP systems.
" So, while we wish we were able to open up our new headquarters
as planned, we've been glad to support the social
services community during the pandemic, " adds Qualls.
