Denver, CO, February 22, 2013 --(PR.com)-- High-tech, connected home living comes to Broomfield this month as Taylor Morrison Denver unveils its latest new home community, Silverleaf, with a chance to win an Apple iPad Mini.

Also debuting at Silverleaf is Taylor Morrison’s innovative optional Interactive Home™ system, which makes it easy for Denver homebuyers to control multiple devices in their home - such as TVs, lighting, thermostats, door locks and DVRs - with a user interface that’s simple to use, yet flexible enough to harness the most complicated electronic gadgets.

To mark the debut of the Interactive Home™, Taylor Morrison Denver is giving away an Apple iPad Mini valued at approximately $329. From February 23 to March 23, eligible U.S. residents can enter for a chance to win the tech gadget through one of the following five methods:

The contest is only open to legal residents of the United States with a valid Twitter, Instagram or Google+ account and who are at least 18 years old as of the date of the entry.

Located in the upscale community of Broomfield, Silverleaf by Taylor Morrison features dramatic elevation changes and offers views of the Rocky Mountains including Flatirons and Indian Peaks as well as the Front Range. With seven spacious floor plans, scenic surroundings and the builder’s elegant, connected home solution, the Interactive Home™, it’s easy to see why Denver homebuyers have been anxious for the community to open.

“Denver homebuyers have distinct ideas of where they want to raise their families and cities like Broomfield offer some of the best amenities out there,” said Kip Gilleland, president of Taylor Morrison’s Denver division. “Silverleaf ties all of these amenities together with thoughtful, intelligent floor plans that reflect the way Colorado families live today.”

Starting in the mid-$400,000s, Silverleaf gives Denver homebuyers the choice of two distinct collections of homes.

The Countryside Collection provides five, inspired floor plans that range in size from approximately 2,638 to 3,534 square feet, offering Denver families up to four bedrooms, 2 to 3.5 baths and three-car garages with each home.

The Paragon Collection is even roomier, with up to five bedrooms, 2.5 to 4 baths and homes that range approximately from 3,056 to 3,685 square feet. The single-level Sapphire also offers a three-car garage while the two-story Ruby stretches to a four-car garage.

“These are some of our larger homes in Denver and they’re floor plans that our homebuyers have asked us to design for them,” Gilleland said. “Each home offers something special for Denver families, whether it’s the gourmet kitchens of the Countryside Collection or the optional casitas offered with the Paragon Collection.”

The flexibility of the optional Interactive Home™ means homeowners can monitor the front door of their Taylor Morrison home from a laptop. They can browse movies from their smart phone, then select and start the film from their phone.

The available options and true customization of the Control4 system also allows homebuyers to create connected living experiences that match and reflect their lifestyles.

“The average homebuyer is more connected than ever,” said Kip Gilleland, division president for Taylor Morrison Denver. “But as the number of devices we own increases, the need to have an intelligent interface to control all of them grows. Our Interactive Home™ system allows homeowners to walk through their front door completely in control.”

Even energy efficiency is easy with the Interactive Home™. The Control4 system allows thermostats to be controlled remotely, allowing a homeowner to fine tune their home’s climate from the office or a smart phone.

In addition, controls can be set to illuminate walkways at night, send emails when the garage door is left open - even turn everything off and lock the house with one touch of a button by the bedside.

“Homebuyers have been waiting for their devices and homes to merge and provide the level of connectivity that has been promised for so long,” Gilleland said. “With the Interactive Home™ system, that day has arrived at Silverleaf.”

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate.
