Entertainment is Always in Reach
Many families enjoy spending time together watching a movie or listening to some music, so entertainment is always a big part of relaxing at home. A smart home system will allow you to control all of your content – from digital music files, streaming services, and Blue-rays – quickly and easily. Imagine playing some jazz music in your bedroom upstairs while the rest of the family hangs out downstairs with some pop hits. Every room can be accessed using a touch screen or mobile device so everyone in the family can choose their favorite music playlists. When it’s movie night, you can use the same touch pad to navigate through cable channels, streaming platforms and Blu-rays to select the show for the evening and dim the lights at the same time. All of your controls are in one convenient location.
Save Money and Energy with Climate Control
With our partner RTI, you can maintain a green lifestyle using a climate control system that is aimed to save you the most money and energy. Your smart thermostat, lights and shades will all work together to reduce the amount of electricity you use on a regular basis. Your home will automatically adjust the thermostat at the same time every day when no one is home, and also dim the lights when there is enough sunlight in the room. Your system will also give you reports on energy usage so you can make adjustments along the way.
Monitor Your Home with Ease
Security is top of mind today, so it’s crucial to invest in a quality system that not only will alert you to intruders but monitor your home while you’re away. Our team can install as many surveillance cameras as you need so you can watch video footage in real time from any location in your home. Easily access recordings through a secure online environment as well as your mobile devices. Your smart home can send you alerts to your smartphone or email so you’re always aware of what’s going on back home.
