With a goal of making the environment a more livable place, actor and environmentalist Adrian Grenier hired local makers and artisans to put their love and craftspeople ship into building an environmentally-friendly home for his mother. By doing so, he was able to install all of the values about the environment that his mom taught him.
Powers ioT is thankful to take a part in this environment-oriented project, while also being featured in Adrian’s mini-series “Mother as Design” on EarthSpeed.
Interested in learning more? Here is a breakdown of the project:
Part 1 – “Mom”
“The dream house Adrian built for his mother is a result of the hard work of incredible artisans, makers and sustainability experts. Learn all about what motivated Adrian to get started on this refurbishment project.”
Part 2 – “Radiant & Solar”
“Learn how a solar thermal energy system was used to create heat even during the harshest of Brooklyn winters.”
Part 3 – “Smart Tech” (Powers ioT)
“Thanks to innovation, sustainability is still an option while building smart homes.”
At Adrian’s house, Powers ioT installed WiFi and network equipment including Google Nest Products (thermostats, smoke alarms, cameras and security) lighting controls, leak sensors, audio and video equipment with Leon speakers.
Part 4 – “The Blue Stuff”
“Something we bet you didn’t know!”
Part 5 – “Design”
“A refurbishment project can seem like a never-ending journey and then there’s the complexities of design.”
Part 6. “Home”
“A well-engineered house takes months of commitment and a willing heart. The result is what you can call ‘home’.”
