Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Akshita Iyer, CEO and Founder, Ome, talk about convenience in the home. She says today more than ever our lives have changed; in the last few years, the home has become more important than ever before.

They also discuss:

  • How many parents struggle with the work-at-home-life balance—and how automation can help.
  • The importance of bringing cohesion with how we interact with all these technologies in our home.
  • How companies are making technology more affordable by bringing down the large upfront cost.
