Hello all,,

 

My name is Regan French. 

 

I love tech, bit of a guru but still learning. 

 

Currently have a craze on Smart Homes...I have plans to build my own in the near future. Would love to catch up with other people like minded as to Smart tech so feel free to say hi.

 

Other hobbies are mountain biking, boxing, hiking, snowboarding, water sports plus many more. So when I don't have my face in a screen, I like to get out there and have a bit of fun under the sun! 

 

I currently work as a Project Manager in the construction industry. I did study in PM but believe my passion is more with tech rather than construction. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to mix tech and PM in the future for the perfect job.

 

Thanks for reading people. 

 

Stay fit!
Regan

Home automation,

I sub contracted to an Automation company who used the platform Control 4.
Was quite cool but very tedious and the amount of work required to automate everything is insane. Especially lights. Dont even get me started there.
I'd be waiting for the technology to mature a bit.
We did a full cinder block mansion in Mirangi bay, Not a single switch in the entire house (Fully automated lights and all) The automation team was in for a few months just getting it pre wired..
The fit off was a nightmare. 
The setup was a larger nightmare, Still going till this day.
