HomeToys.com introduces AVSystemsMag, a newly designed and focused eMagazine.

The eMagazine offers a blend of News, Articles and Interviews from the Residential & Commercial Audio, Video, Automation & Digital Signage Industries.

San Diego, California, November 1st, 2012 – HomeToys.com, a leading Commercial and Residential AV, Automation & Digital Signage Industry Portal, went live today with a freshly revamped eMagazine featuring a blend of AV & Automation Industry News, Articles and Interviews combined with insight into the trends and breakthroughs with potential to affect related business & lifestyle.


Over the past 16 years, HomeToys.com has evolved from a primary focus on Home Technologies to become a leading trade publication covering all facets of the AV, Automation & Digital Signage Industries. The revamping of the eMagazine is a result of that progression. HomeToys founder and chief editor Bob Hetherington had this to say about the revamp - "We've always been looking ahead to the next industry breakthroughs with our publications. In 1996 HomeToys led the way into online publishing with its eMagazine about the Home Technology industry. Over the last few years Commercial AV and Automation as well as Digital Signage has seen tremendous growth and we felt like this topic now warranted a bigger presence on the HomeToys site."

Now, the readers of HomeToys.com and subscribers to the eNewsletter (who generally tend to be AV industry professionals) will see an even greater emphasis on these industry segments combined with the usual home technology trends. "This added direction will allow us to bring more news, articles, interviews and case studies to our 16 year library of archived content making HomeToys.com a premier resource for AV Industry pros."

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
