Many homes today provide a refuge for hidden dangers and problems: dust, mold, allergens, bad air, bad water and wasted energy. The Healthy House Institute offers solutions for identifying and reducing these dangers. Home allergens and poor indoor air quality represent one of the biggest problems, particularly in fall and winter, when air becomes trapped within the home. Tainted water is another serious concern, and the institute offers suggestions for treatment and filtering methods when drinking water becomes too heavy or laden with minerals or other contaminants.

As part of its mission, the Healthy House Institute promotes green living and sustainable energy practices. These practices include energy-efficient windows, doors, insulation, lighting and appliances. With a moderate up-front investment, energy efficiency quickly pays for itself. Green living includes making product choices that reduce one's carbon footprint and create fewer, or no, toxic waste materials. 

"People spend 65 percent of their time in their homes," said Healthy House Institute President Allen P. Rathey. "The health and safety of indoor environments, especially homes, cannot be overstated. Our vision of a healthy home is one that positively impacts every facet of society, including public health to environmental stewardship. From new home construction to remodeling and restoration, the Healthy House Institute provides resources and guidance for each stage in a home's life cycle."

The Healthy House Institute offers articles, blogs and links that touch on every aspect of healthy living spaces. The library of information is conveniently organized by category and type, while a search box offers quick sorting by keyword. Users can receive updates regarding new content of interest via RSS feeds.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
