Technology! Gottaloveit!

Today? Surprise inspection. And I didn't even make my bed! DANG!
I'm sitting at my office. The phone rings. "..yea this is (enter name here) I'm here for the bank for an inspection." Of course the front gate is shut and locked and I'm 45 minutes out. NO PROBLEM, for those of you that know me that is. I simply hit one button on my phone, and magically the gate opens and he drives on through. I then log onto one of the many cameras posted throughout the property and see him do his inspection at the build site which is about 1/2 mile from the front gate. I log onto the gate computer, open the gate remotely and keep it open until he leaves, gate closes, the bank is then assigned a gate code so they don't have to call from the box up front. Yes.. technology IS our friend as we build this house. We are there, alllllllllll the time. This weekend? Cameras from all vantage points around house to catch the build in time-lapse! (Ok.. I'm a dork, but in a good kind a way.) And yes, I designed and implemented said technology to be on site 24 hours a day.
