WAXHAW – An upcoming episode of Lifetime Network’s “Designing Spaces” will feature a Waxhaw family, according to Kinetic by Windstream.
The TV show will feature Ashley, Ryan, Carter and Will Tobin. The show airs at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 13.
Kinetic by Windstream will appear beside the Tobins as the family transforms their home into a fully connected smart home using the company’s internet services.
“It’s amazing,” Ashley Tobin said. “We never dreamed our technology needs would be answered by Windstream and filmed for TV by Lifetime.”
Ryan Tobin works as a contractor specializing in adaptive reuse of historic structures for multifamily residences around the Charlotte area.
“It can be tricky to bring a home, even a pretty new one like ours, up to the wireless, high-speed service we need, but when I’m working from home, I’m logging into a virtual network and downloading enormous PDFs of blueprints,” he said.
Because of service outages with a previous provider, “I have to make a decision, ‘Is it OK for me to go home today because I know when I’m there I can take care of something, or do I have to stay where I’m at?’” Ryan Tobin said. “This will make it a lot easier to make the decision to go home.”
With Kinetic Internet, Ryan Tobin can work from home while Ashley Tobin orchestrates a growing pet sitting business online that Carter and Will staff called Paws, Claws, Wings & Things.
The episode segment shows them all on computers, smart phones and a game console, then follows a home technology overhaul that includes a shopping spree for smart watches, a smart doorbell, new laptop and wireless printer, a gaming system and a WiFi-enabled TV.
“We are thrilled to offer the Tobins high-speed Kinetic Internet from home, and Carter and Will are helping out with a business and completing school work over that broadband connection, not to mention the streaming and games that are a big part of their winding down. A modern home like theirs runs on reliable high-speed internet.
