A Story of Courage, Sacrifice and Heroism

This Veterans Day, Home Controls is honored to share the story of Army Sergeant Joel Tavera, an extraordinary Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient who was severely wounded during a 2008 insurgent attack while serving in Iraq.

One of our manufacturers, On-Q/Legrand, was fortunate enough to connect with Building Homes For Heroes – a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping severely wounded veterans rebuild their lives – and have the opportunity to bring a small level of comfort into the lives of Joel and his family.

Tavera’s new Florida home features a complete Unity Home System courtesy of Legrand and Guardian Protection Services. This system enables the Taveras to control the home’s lighting, temperature, and camera features – as well as refrigerator and microwave functions – from a customized iPad anywhere in the home. Thanks in part to Unity, Joel has been able to rediscover a piece of the independence and productivity that had been missing from his life.

On this day of remembrance, we urge you to take a few minutes to read Tavera’s truly inspirational story, for it is a reminder of the remarkable sacrifice, courage, and heroism displayed by each and every member of our armed forces, both home and abroad.

Happy Veterans Day.
