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 Bastian Elsner, head of international sales at Elsner Elektronik, talk about interoperability and automation. He says the family-owned company is a German-based company that is in the automation business—mainly with KNX.

They also discuss:

  • Sensors and how they are the eyes and ears of the house, with one example of shading and brightness sensors.
  • The difference between a DIY product and a truly intelligent home.
  • KNX, the value it provides, and why it has wide adoption in Europe, but not in the United States.
