Beam Up Beam Industries has a new control technology that lets home buyers turn on its central vacuum system wirelessly. The technology, called Prism Wireless, has a transmitter built into the handle of the Beam Advocate central vacuum system that sends a radio signal to a receiver attached to the power unit in the garage, basement, or utility room. The radio control eliminates the need to run wiring between the power unit and wall inlets. A complete central vacuum system with Prism Wireless that includes a power unit, hose, and electric brush costs around $1,200. Visit www.beamvac.com for more information.
