Stefen Kaur is an enthusiast who uses any piece of technology to aide him in his digital lifestyle. He earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees from Ball State and is the associate director of technology and hardware for the department. Out running, he uses the Nike app on his smartphone to track his time, path, and distance. At home, he streams Pandora and Spotify music wirelessly to his stereo amplifier in his living room, using AirPlay, to rock out to his favorite tunes. He saves energy by using a home automation system that controls his lighting, wall outlets, ceiling fans, and heating/cooling system using Z-wave technology. He shares photos and videos from his travels with visiting family and friends on his Apple TV and then offloads them into the cloud using Dropbox. He streams movies from Netflix on his smart TV instead of paying for cable or renting movies. Utilizing an InDrive system on his car that monitors his driving habits, he saves money on car insurance. Lastly, he secures all of this precious technology with a monitored home security system that is armed and disarmed by the same device he checks emails and surfs the web with, his Apple iPhone.
