Aura from Cognitive Systems is a dead simple home monitoring system that can be installed in minutes without tools. 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...

Bowers & Wilkins is in San Diego for CEDIA this week demonstrating its 700 Series loudspeakers, the new replacement for the long-running CM Series. The new line-up will function as a step-down from its previously revised 800 Diamond line and borrows from that family's innovations while adding a few of its own to deliver an exemplary audiophile experience at more affordable cost.

Basalte brings Belgian-style, flare and automation smarts to its Auro motion sensor which has a completely flat design and 2-inch visible diameter that can be flush mounted in-wall, creating a virtually invisible look. Beyond a sleek look, the sensor offers Crestron and Lutron HomeWorks integration that sets it apart from other sensors.

The “only show dedicated 100% to residential technology,” CEDIA 2017 is expected to draw more than 18,000 home technology professional attendees and over 500 exhibitors to the San Diego Convention Center, September 5 through 9. As you might expect, Sound & Vision will be there, too, with plenty of eyes and ears on the show floor posting blogs about the newest and most noteworthy products and technologies demonstrated there—whether it’s something you’ll see in your home (like a new projection screen) or something you won’t (like a new home automation controller). Here’s a quick glimpse at some of the things that we’re waiting to see—and tell you about over the coming days.

Every tradeshow has that one standout product that seems to be able to do just about everything. At this year’s CES, I gave that award to Kef’s LS50 Wireless ( read about them here) for outstanding achievement in a streaming loudspeaker. The award for most do-it-all product at CEDIA this year has to go to Meridian for its new 251 Powered Zone Controller, a product capable of satisfying the audio demands of numerous situations, and doing it all while keeping a British stiff upper lip and delivering Meridian’s world class performance.

The 251 is the latest product in Meridian’s new 200-series, and it does so much, it’s almost easier to say what it doesn’t do...

The beginnings of CEDIA date back to 1989 when a group of audio/video professionals who called themselves “custom installers” got together to formulate a plan to establish an industry group that would promote the interest of its members and offer professional training as well as a place to exchange ideas and exhibit new products. The Custom Electronic Design and Industry Association was borne out of those early meetings.

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.
