Many of these October 2014 multimedia ideas revolve around entertainment, efficiency or both. When it comes to streamlining life in general, there are several neat beacon devices that are popping up now for personal use, making it easier than ever to create a home that is intuitive, responsive and smart without the need to install a high-tech home system.
