    Episode 47: Thar Casey on Amber Solutions’ Solid-State Control of Electricity

    In this episode, Residential Tech Today Executive Editor Jeremy Glowacki chats with Thar Casey, the CEO, president, and founder of Amber Solutions. Casey is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur with a track record of launching disruptive technologies. His latest venture is creating patented technologies for digital control of electricity in solid-state architecture. The solid-state control of electricity changes the rules of the game for everything – security and control systems, circuit breakers, dimmer switches, outlets, and even appliances. The resulting products could offer breakthroughs for increased safety and reliability within electrical infrastructure, widespread and endpoint-specific energy monitoring, and greatly expanded Internet of Things (IoT) integration. All of this functionality arises from the ability to install solid-state solutions built in the existing walls of buildings.
