Your World Made Simple

Have you ever wondered if it was possible to control the lights, music, security system, even temperature - from across the room? Or how about from across the globe? It all begins with a simple touch...


Home

Think of the things you do to get ready in the morning: turn on the lights, check the weather and traffic reports, maybe even turn on the morning news. g! delivers your world at a glance with a personalized dashboard for your home. Customize your screen with the things you use most such as weather forecasts, camera video, lighting, even security system features. With g! it's all about you.

It's amazing how one elegant screen has simplified our life at home, giving us immediate access to what we care about most. And when we go on vacation, a single button press puts our home in 'green' mode.

Media

What if you could press a button to access your entire collection of music and movies - from anywhere in your home? g! catalogs your discs and displays them with brilliant cover art right on your TV, touchscreen, or iPhone, making it easier than ever to find your favorites. If you're really into music, you'll love finding new favorites with Pandora®, Rhapsody™ and SHOUTcast streaming services.

Now that we have easy access to our music from any room, we have rediscovered our favorites. And the sound quality is just incredible!

Security

Does your current security system ramp up the lights when the alarm sounds? Does it flash the exterior lights to alert the neighbors? g! adds this intelligence to better protect your investment and your family. Plus, it can send text message alerts to your cell phone and allows you to remotely arm or disarm the system.

If there is an emergency, g! gives us quick access from every room in the house - or anywhere in the world. Now we can rest easy knowing that our family is safe and secure.

Climate

Studies have shown that lowering a thermostat just three degrees can save up to 10% on your energy bill. With g! not only can you automate these adjustments, but you also gain access to detailed history views that allow you to monitor the system and make informed decisions about consumption. And if you own a vacation home, you'll love the remote access that gives you control while away.

Being green has never been easier. With one button press I can set the entire system to 'away' mode. If I leave work early, I can remotely adjust the temperature so the house is comfortable when i arrive.

Lighting

If part of your bedtime ritual involves going from room to room checking the lights, there is a better way. With g! a simple touch can quickly turn them all off, or set the perfect party mood for the entire home. Save energy by dimming lights and creating custom schedules for landscape lighting. Plus remote access features will ensure you always arrive to a well-lighted home.

Not only is my lighting system beautiful, with g! it's also easy to use. When I'm entertaining guests, I just press one button to light my entire home.

Irrigation

The dials and switches used by many irrigation systems can be confusing and difficult to use. g! takes the guesswork out of watering your lawn and puts you in control with a simple, easy-to- read display. Conserve water by detecting rainfall and setting up personalized schedules, or give landscapers limited remote access to monitor the system and make adjustments.

I get to spend more time enjoying my lawn, and less time playing weatherman - and I use less water than before! It's like having autopilot for my backyard.

Messaging

While g! can't drive your children to ballgames, it is your digital personal assistant allowing you to check your email and leave recorded messages for others. Each family member can easily create a custom greeting for their voicemail and be sent alerts or emails when new items arrive. And you can play messages directly from the touchscreen or remotely using a PC or phone.

My son loves leaving me handwritten notes on the screen. And since our family is always on the go, having separate mailboxes for our messages keeps us organized. Say goodbye to yellow sticky notes!

Video

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then video must be priceless. Whether you're checking on a vacation home, wanting to keep your family safe, or simply wondering who is at the front door - nothing gives you peace of mind like seeing them at your fingertips. And best of all you can view the same live video from your home, office, iPhone or anywhere in the world.

I travel frequently, so getting a glimpse of home from the road is very comforting. I just open up my laptop to quickly see live video of my house - from anywhere in the world.

Pool / Spa

Wouldn't it be cool if you could turn on the spa from the bedroom as you don your swimsuit? Conserve energy with scheduling of pumps, water features and lighting, and harvest the sun's rays using automated solar covers. Also monitor pool health, receive customized alerts and even control the system from your cell phone. Time may not float on by, but with g! you can.

In addition to all the pool automation features, we really love the way the landscape lighting is tied into a single, easy-to-use system. No more going into the house soaking wet just to turn on the patio lights.

Photos

In this new digital world, too often photos stay trapped in a PC or camera. Unlock those memories by turning every touchscreen and TV into a digital picture frame. Nothing gets the family together for "movie night" like a larger-than-life slideshow of your last vacation on the big screen.

We love getting together and watching slideshows of our friends and family. Every time we do, it's another step down memory lane that brings us closer together.
