What is a Smart Home?
While there are many smart products available today, it isn’t until these devices work together in orchestration, that you experience the magic of a smart home.
From homes small to large, new and old, Control4 delivers power and performance on one platform that coordinates the technology in your house into complete, brilliant experiences—interactions that fit your lifestyle and are easy for your family to enjoy. With one touch, dim the lights, stream high-resolution music, turn up the heat, lock the doors and arm the security system. Or, check in on your home no matter where you are. It’s a smarter living experience that you’ll wonder how you ever lived without. We call it, the New Normal.
Your home is your castle and, as such, is probably the single largest investment in your life. It is both your refuge and your sanctuary. Where a moat and drawbridge afforded security and protection in ages past home automation today fulfills that role. Instead of rapacious hordes home automation systems offer protection from UV rays, exhorbitant electricity bills, heating bills, dark unwelcoming abodes, tedious repetitive light switches, and manual drapery and blinds.
Imagine your daily routine without home automation today. Getting ready to leave in the morning you have a plethora of tasks to perform. You have to remember to turn off the TV and/or radio. Additionally you must turn off lights in the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and foyer. The drapery and blinds must also be drawn to shield your walls, floors, and furniture from the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays as well as unwanted heat. You may also want to adjust your home’s temperature settings to save energy while the house is unoccupied. Whew! I’m tired just outlining these daily steps. Now repeat these steps every day of your life because if you don’t your home may be too hot when you arrive home, your TV may have been entertaining and informing the ether, and your carefully chosen furnishings may have begun the slow bleaching effect resulting from the ultraviolet spectrum of the sun’s rays.
Would it not be better to simply enjoy your breakfast and press one AWAY button as you exit your home in the morning thereby setting in motion a daytime status setting for your home with drawn shades, lights off, TV off? Of course it would.
Systems from Control 4 and Crestron make this and so much more possible. Monitor your residence from anywhere in the world via your smartphone or tablet. Enable access to limited areas of your home for tradespeople with passcode protected entry systems. Not only will you control your home with ease but you will save money on items such as air-conditioning, heating, and electricity expenses.
