Helping Our Heroes: Smart Home Systems for Wounded Veterans
We’ve Collaborated With R.I.S.E to Give Back to Our Community
Some companies measure success by how much money they make. Others by how many return customers they acquire. But when we look at our success, we have another measurement: how we give back to our community. We pride ourselves on serving Atlanta and the surrounding areas with accessible, easy-to-use Elan g! and Control4 home automation systems, but we also strive to do more for the people around us. That’s why we’re proud to share that we’re working with the Gary Sinise Foundation Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment (R.I.S.E) initiative to provide specially adapted smart homes to wounded veterans.
Smart Automation: A Helping Hand
When you think of a smart home, you might think of the convenience that comes with one-touch controls of your everyday devices. But for wounded veterans like US Army Master Sergeant Cedric King (Ret.) of Duluth, GA, who have given up so much in the name of duty, a smart automation system is the helping hand they need to complete everyday tasks.
We’ve partnered with Elan g!, Snap AV, Core Brands and Seura to help give Master Sergeant King a home that simplifies his lifestyle based on his unique needs. With a single iPad or iPhone he can control the security and surveillance systems, lights, shades, audio video, thermostats and more.
While we use the term “smart home” to describe our work, in truth, we’ve only helped build a structure. We’ve worked with the Gary Sinise Foundation to construct a house and automation system that makes living easier. And we’re proud that our contributions will help Master Sergeant King and his family make it their home.
Why We Work With R.I.S.E.
The soldiers who serve our country have one of the hardest jobs in the world. Not only do they put their lives on the line to protect their fellow citizens, but they often give up fundamental abilities in the process. The heroes that R.I.S.E helps have suffered the greatest injuries imaginable in service to their country, and the program is designed to help restore their dignity and independence to do everyday tasks.
That’s why we do our part to help the people that have given us so much. While we know that a smart home system is a small thank you for everything they’ve sacrificed, we hope that our systems will provide simple control of the devices that many of us take for granted and help restore some peace to our nation’s heroes.
