Home Automation Control Systems – Taking your Daily Life into a Smart Home!
A client told us “I want to be able to flush my toilet with my Home Automation System“. We laughed for a while, and then said ok, that is do-able! It was a joke, and a funny one, but it was possible. Smart Homes have so much opportunity to remake the environment that we live in! Just imagine in 20-30 years, I’d say that most homes will be Automated. The most common form of Home Control is in 4 different areas, and this is all accessible via a home screen on your computer, TV, tablet, smart phone, etc. Navigation is easy. As home tech. guys, we quickly become great friends with many of our clients, because we are so involved in helping design a home system around they’re specific lifestyle & needs.

Security & Access Control:
The most critical for some, securing your residence, your largest investment is supreme. Selecting a high quality camera system is important. Going with the cheapest cameras most times will not give you the resolution to see what you need to see in case something happens. Why have cameras if you cannot clearly see the recording? You can monitor your quality cameras from you tablet, IPAD, or Smart Phone with any wireless connection, from anywhere. We’ll show you more.
Control your door locks, and more via your system too.
Lighting systems are inter-related with security, energy management and can add elegance to your residence with different scenes. For security purposes, we recommend a lighting system that is programmed to turn on lights inside your home once you press the garage door opener as you drive up to your residence. Lighting affects energy management as well. We can program lighting to dim as you like, this is typical in the evening as less light is needed before bedtime. Every light in the home can be on a timer for any type of function. Scenes are important to many folks, helping to display elegance, art pieces, and landscape lighting. Lighting can go far in displaying beauty in a home, while saving on energy costs.
This is plain and simple. Monitor, control, and adjust your HVAC use. Set your temps. per your season, and lock them in, or give some flexibility to the rest of your family and monitor it as you wish. All available via a wireless network and your tablet, laptop, or smart phone.
This is where Home Automation gets really cool, and you have so many options with Audio Video and Home Theater. Lets start with your house music. You can ask your system technician to program in whatever you want. How about – play Jazz tunes via your in ceiling whole house audio system at a specific volume starting a 5:15pm when you walk in your front door. Turn it off automatically via setting control, or manually when you have heard enough.
You can also control multiple zones of music with different sources playing at the same time with the right AV equipment design and multi-zone receiver. You may also need amplifiers, or speakers selectors, and of course we’ll have speakers installed the right places. We recommend a Nuvo Whole House Audio System to manage this process for you. Have pandora playing in the kitchen, your favorite oldies tunes on the patio by the pool, and Justin Bieber (oh no!) playing upstairs for your kids. We can set the zone to shut down if someone (daughter?) manually turns the (Justin Bieber?) volume too high, so that your whole system doesn’t malfunction, and speakers do not blow.
The Home Theater Room offers even more customization and excitement. Lets face it, this room is THE BIG DEAL for most. This is a really neat room to work in some Smart Home features. Lighting can be important for folks with custom movie rooms. So, we can design lighting control features that will dim the lights as the movie turns on, at the control of button. I imagine verbal commands will become a norm in the near term. Additionally, we can customize your Theater Room to automatically roll down the projector screen, automated window shades, turn on the projector, and all components at the same time with a magic wand (remote control). Then, everything is perfect for introduction to your movie, or the start of a big game! Everything will be synced to the second and in total harmony.
