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 smart home technology and sustainability in the home. She says in the last few years sustainability has been an increasingly important topic, especially for the younger generation.

They also discuss:

  • The genesis of the product around being able to retrofit existing appliances.
  • How to be more sustainable by upgrading what you already have.
  • The power of the technology for helping people age in place.
