M.D. Manufacturing is going to wipe the floor with other central vac products. Well, they actually don’t need any help; they do just fine by themselves.

The latest in the company’s AirForce central vac line doesn’t need any low-voltage wiring, communicating via your home’s existing powerlines and UPB (Universal Powerline Bus) technology.

This allows for constant monitoring, meaning things can be as clean as you want them to be. And you won’t have to wait until debris comes flying out to figure out there’s a clog or that a bag needs changing; this smart system can alert you via email.

Another neat feature is that the system can be programmed to power off when the phone, doorbell or other alarms sound off.

It’s easy to have your installer ties this unit into ELK, HAI, Crestron or other UPB-friendly home control systems. Also expect a stand-alone device that doesn’t need any of those names; it connects to the web all on its own.
