Contemporary Controls bids You Happy National Pi Day! In honor of National Pi day, we’re celebrating the Raspberry Pi, which was created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation as a way to make computers more accessible to people all over the world. Contemporary Controls strongly supports the vision of using open hardware and software to make technology more accessible to everyone. As part of our vision for open control, we’ve created the BASpi I/O board for Raspberry Pi, which turns your Raspberry Pi into a BACnet-networked, Sedona-programmable controller with 6 Universal Inputs and 6 Relay Outputs.
Across the Universe with Ken and Eric. I saw a wonderful movie last night called Across the Universe. It is a revolutionary rock musical that re-imagines America in the turbulent late-1960s and features 34 compositions originally written by members of the Beatles. It reminded me of the EASY IO Global Conference in Manchester England, and the trip Ken and I took to Liverpool. As you can see in this video, Ken and I explore the places were the Beatles grew up and got started. We reflect on how Smart Building Controls are in a phase very much like music was in England in the early sixties right before the Beatles and others broke the rules and changed music forever.
