GE Smart Lighting Made Simple

In my work as a tech expert, I have found that many families are interested in integrating smart lighting into their homes, but feel overwhelmed by the many options and complexity. I am always wary of “tech just for tech’s sake.” In other words, if a family invests in smart lighting, it should be easy to install, functional and practical.

After so many years in the lighting business, I’ve seen that GE really understands their customer and practical ways to integrate the new lighting technology.

Meet Eno: The Bot that Lets You Text with Your Bank

Then we lingered in the long line that wound around the lobby to wait for our turn at the window. If we were lucky we got a free sucker from the lady at the counter. It is amazing to think, in a different era how much time and effort it took my mom to complete just one banking transaction!

If it wasn’t for tech, my New Year’s resolutions may already be toast. According to U.S. News & World Report, nearly 80 percent of resolutions are usually broken by mid-February.
