AVPA recently completed work on a unique residential project in Ramona, California. The project, named “Casa Aguila” for the Golden Eagles that regularly fly over the residence, is being called “the most advanced home built in San Diego County.” It will be the first home in San Diego County to be certified as a Passive House, which means it has been designed to achieve maximum levels of energy efficiency, while still maintaining a certain level of comfort. The homeowners are striving to be completely off the grid by utilizing a combination of battery, solar, and wind power in their home.

Recently, AVPA employees attended a training seminar conducted by Extron Electronics, one of the leading providers of professional AV integration products for commercial environments. The main focus of the seminar was to introduce professional AV programmers to the new configuration software that Extron is using to control their Pro Series line of processors and touchpads.
This new software, called Global ScripterTM, takes Extron products into a new era—from a more configuration-style of control to an actual true programming language, one that is based on the widely-used programming language Python, which has been in use since 1991.
