Although not associated with Stephen King and his his horror novel of the same name, smart firewall maker, CUJO, says that there are over 20 billion internet connected devices worldwide as of 2017. These devices include internet-connected TVs, refrigerators, thermostats, security cameras, home automation systems, and even baby monitors. Surprisingly, most of these devices have little, if any, security measures built-in, a situation which is essentially equivalent to leaving all the doors and windows in your home wide open with a sign on the lawn saying, “Take what you want.” If you have children in your home, there’s the additional worry of dangerous, devious, and/or deviant web sites that are waiting to be discovered by the youngsters who have access to the internet through your home network.

CUJO is a friendly looking, tabletop device with LED status “eyelids” embedded on the front. CUJO uses artificial...

The system uses a small, rectangular Hub and from one to four identical-looking Beacons that plug into the AC outlets in a home or apartment. The Hub uses Wi-Fi to connect to the network’s router for internet access and creates a mesh network to communicate with the Beacons in the system.

Aura is an extremely unusual home monitoring system in that it...

Take a look at the four-element Trinnov room correction setup microphone, with one element elevated over the other three. The mic performs time-based measurements of phase and impulse response plus the azimuth and elevation of all speakers. We decided to show this instead of the customary black-box product shot. You're welcome.

Kaleidescape launched a new product at CEDIA called the Co-Star Switch which combines film library collections between the companies Strato and Premiere movie servers. Up until Co-Star, the two systems were completely separate, with movies stored on the Strato’s hard drive only viewable using the Strato’s on-screen interface, and movies stored on a Premiere server only visible using it’s interface. The Co-Star solves this issue in a simple yet ingenious way.
