Automation for the physically challenged


Senior Member
Recently, ELK and other companies were invited to participate in helping a former automation installer that now has ALS. With a lot of volunteer work and some innovative hardware and software, the life of Steve Smith is a great deal brighter today.

Read and watch the complete story of this installation:

It will warm the heart and give you lots of ideas.
I saw that slideshow last week, very impressive stuff. I am glad to see that so many people & companies still care about things like this.
What a nice story and to see the humanity which is embedded in the industry. Those people involved at all levels of involvement take a bow!

I don't know Steve but he must have been blown away by his friends and the way in which the industry responded.

Good things still do happen.....
