“I really wanted to be able to control things from an app,” Wendy said. “My No. 1 thing: I wanted to be able to put lights on a timer.”

13 Feb: Lights, camera, love: Couple’s cherished tradition continues [VIDEO]

Jack and Lorene have been married for nearly 60 years.

She wasn’t impressed when she was first introduced to him. He was too quiet, she thought, not a match for her chatterbox personality. He thought she was perfect. Love’s surprising that way.

Together they built a family, traditions and a business. Through it all, they loved watching movies — just the two of them.

Then Jack suffered an aneurysm.

He recovered, but short-term memory and hearing loss remained. The technology in their home became hard for him to use and enjoy.
