The Cielo Home Management System lets Tablets control lighting, climate and other home-based functions

The Cielo Home Management System lets homeowners control household electronics including lighting, climate, security, and entertainment systems using PDAs, tablet PCs, Webpads based on Windows XP and Windows CE .NET, programmable remote controls, and PCs running Windows XP or Windows 2000. Cielo uses cameras, motion detection, and object tracking to sense the occupation and movement of users in the home. After sensing the movement of users, the technology modifies temperature, humidity, light level, and other environmental factors. You can also configure the product to automatically adjust lighting and environmental factors such as temperature for when the house is occupied and unoccupied.


Field2Base has a new application for Tablets to help manage contruction projects

Field2Base(TM), Inc., a pioneer in information mobility, today announced commercial availability of its comprehensive construction industry solution, ConstructConnect(TM). ConstructConnect offers a complete set of mobile performance and productivity tools for job site personnel, including field superintendents, project managers, architects, engineers, inspectors, and field sales.

ConstructConnect utilizes highly innovative, patent-pending software applications designed specifically for Tablet PCs, and combines them with enhanced wireless data communications capability that links ConstructConnect users to the Internet or corporate servers via cell phone or WiFi data networks.

“Our solution solves several major job site issues that result from the inability to clearly communicate information immediately with field-based teams,” said David Lea, CEO of Field2Base. “We mobilize data the way cellular telephones mobilize voice communications. ConstructConnect prevents time delays and reduces misunderstandings, while allowing everyone in the construction process–from field to office to subcontractors–to see the same information at the same time. We provide mobility and portability of all data, as we offer the ability for workers to complete documents in the field and alert all affected parties to changes and updates.”
