Todd Stabelfeldt is a quadriplegic entrepreneur, digital tech guru, and community advocate. When he and his wife Karen couldn’t find a home in their price point that they could easily retrofit for increased accessibility and aging in place, they decided to design and build on their own. To meet their current and future needs, the pair implemented a wide range of smart home tech that Todd can operate using just his voice, making independence and accessibility at home a reality.

 

After they added a covered outdoor living space to the property, Todd and Karen discovered Infratech and our Universal Control Panel, a voice-activated system that allows users to control their outdoor heating through devices like Siri. We spoke with Karen about the devices and apps that they’ve found best meet their needs, why they’re now Infratech fans, and how smart home tech is opening doors for families where accessibility matters.

Hands-free voice activation is a game-changing lifestyle enhancement for those seeking a more accessible home, whether you are living with a disability, Aging in Place, or simply an early tech adopter. Now you can enjoy the convenience of voice-activated, smart home-enabled outdoor comfort heat without investing and installing a comprehensive home management system with Infratech’s Universal Control Panel. 

Convenience and outdoor luxury make Infratech the top outdoor heating choice for architects and designers around the country. That’s why we’re excited to announce the latest addition to our extensive line of custom control options – the Universal Control Panel. Now, designers have a new option when specifying Infratech heaters – the ability to select the switches of their choice, for a look that seamlessly integrates with the décor of outdoor areas.

Interested in taking steps toward lowering your energy consumption and achieving a zero-carbon footprint? You’re not alone. In 2016, the U.S. solar market grew in leaps and bounds, as people increasingly reduced their reliance on the grid with clean energy solutions at home.
