When we heard about the Gary Sinise Foundation and their R.I.S.E (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program was building a house in Carbondale, IL  for SFC Jared Bullock, we knew we wanted to be involved. Core Brands reached out to us to see if we were interested in participating in this project and we jumped. We reached out to the foundation, offered our services and are thrilled to be a part of this project. The goal of this project was to build a smart home that is fully functional for Jared and his family.

Jared and his twin brother enlisted in the Army two years after the 9/11 attacks, and in October of 2013 Jared earned his Green Beret. In November of 2013 while on a routine patrol, Jared was severely injured when his ATV ran over an improvised explosive device. He lost his right arm and his right leg in the accident and has since undergone over 30 surgeries. Thanks to the Gary Sinise Foundation, Jared, his wife Jessica and their son Aiden will be able to start a new chapter in their lives in a fully automated specially adapted smart home.

This is an extremely exciting home, featuring security, automated remote door locks,  lighting control, motorized shades), video surveillance and recording for security, entertainment including whole house audio and video. This house will be fully automated and be able to controlled via iPad, Tablet and smart phones. There will be touch panels in the Great Room of the house along with other appropriate locations that will make it easy for use.

We are working with our suppliers and vendors to get as much as we can donated to the project, and we have been amazed by the support we have received. Our staff have stepped up as well, donating their time and expertise to the project. The house is expected to be completed in early summer and we can’t wait to share pictures of the final home with you!

Last week we shared Part 1 of our Holiday Gift Guide and we’ve been hearing amazing feedback! And without further ado, here is Part 2 of our Holiday Gift Guide:

Jared Lange:
Anthem P5

If anyone was looking to buy me a gift this holiday season (ahem, sweet, sweet Uncle David Young), the Anthem P5 would be on the top of my list. It’s a 5 channel amplifier that is big, powerful and would be perfect for my theater room. I’ve been needing a new amp and this would be the perfect addition to my system. We currently don’t have one in the story so we just placed an order, while I wait I’ve been going online and looking at pictures of my lovely Anthem P5.

McIntosh MC275
I have had this on my list for the past couple years, and one these days someone will break down and buy it for me (or, I’ll finally treat myself). The Mcintosh MC275 is a vacuum tube power amplifier that has all the features needed to make every music enthusiast very, very happy. It delivers 75 watts per channel into eight, four or two ohms, or 150 watts in bridged mono mode, via four KT-88 power tubes. It looks awesome and sounds like 2 majestic, beautiful unicorns mating (also known as sounds amazing). I would be one very happy and complete man to add the MC275 to my collection.


Gary Macchi:
Crestron Matrix Video Switcher

I recently updated and installed new TV’s throughout my home. I wanted a way to connect all of the televisions to the BlueRay, DirecTV and Wi-Fi with one system. With the Crestron Matrix Video Switcher, I can do just that! I’ll admit, I bought myself an early Christmas present because I fell in love with this device. I was able to install it in the lower level and distribute all of our systems throughout the house. It’s cleaner, simpler to use and everyone in the house is happy. It’s not just a gift for me, it’s a gift for the whole family!
